  • The fundamental shift in how IT provides services
  • The new platforms behind digital disruption
  • The new sourcing landscape
  • Running IT as a business
  • The importance of collaboration among top-level management
  • The shift in CIO from improver to influencer to transformer
  • The talent shortage, skills gaps and knowledge leak
