Change I&O Today to Be Indispensable Tomorrow

Successful digital enterprises cannot be built upon a brittle Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) foundation – now is the time for I&O leaders to reject outmoded operating models, antiquated structures and technologies, and declining business relevance, and assume a key position of influence over the digital future of your enterprise. This year's Gartner IT Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit will help I&O leaders transform their organizations by providing new ways to identify and address skill gaps, align development and operations, link IT financial management with enterprise metrics and deliver higher levels of agility and efficiency, and more.

In 2.5 intensive days of research-focused sessions, analyst predictions and peer-to-peer interaction, you'll acquire the strategic insight and actionable next steps you need for I&O transformation and success in your own leadership role.
