Gartner chooses “Digital Enterprise and Beyond” as focal theme for CIO Leadership forum

Gartner’s CIO leadership forum, which will be held from 11 to 13 March 2013 in London, will analyst the impact of changing business demands with a special attention to how the Digital Enterprise is evolving.

The event, which Gartner says will offer “an interactive, workshop-centric experience to exchange ideas and receive actionable guidance from prominent CIOs, Gartner experts and senior executives from leading technology providers”, will be the host to three prominent keynote speakers.

They are Rory Sutherland, Vice Chairman of Ogilvy Group, Mark P. McDonald, Group VP and Gartner Fellow and Michael Woodford, Former President and CEO Olympus.

The latter rose to prominence when, as the first non-Japanese president of Olympus, he was fired back in October 2011. He had discovered a £1 billion fraud at the digital camera company and blew the whistle on the malpractice.

The forum will include Gartner Analyst sessions (including one-on-one meetings), Analyst-User roundtables, End-user case studies, Workshops, hospitality Suite, solution provider sessions and Face-to-face sponsor meetings. More than 1,000 CIOs are expected to attend to this event which will be held at the Sofitel London Heathrow hotel.
