Agenda

Attendees honed their leadership skills, refined their strategies and discovered the latest innovative technologies at the Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo™ 2022 conference in Orlando.

2022 day highlights

Over 3 days attendees had access to unbiased, researched backed Gartner content, as well as guest keynotes, case studies, and solution provider sessions to shape the future of IT and business

Creating a Human-Centric Work Experience Through Improved Digital Workplace Architecture

Speakers:  Jim Murphy, Senior Gartner Analyst

Key take-aways

Along with hybrid work and a general increased pressure to attract and retain employees, organizations have broadly embraced the importance of employee experience and human centricity. 

The CIO Guide to Sustainable IT and ESG

Speaker:  Simon Mingay, VP Analyst

Key take-aways

Sustainability and ESG are now a central strategic pillar for many enterprises. The CIO and IT organization have an important role to play in support of the enterprise achieving its sustainability and ESG goals.

 

How Do You Lead in a World in Permanent Crisis Mode?

Speakers:  Mary Mesaglio, Managing Vice President Gartner

Key take-aways

Between geopolitical tensions, the pandemic, social justice concerns and climate urgency, it seems like we are never out of crisis mode. We covered that if this is the new normal, how should leaders lead?

The New Value Proposition for the Role of CIO

Speaker:  Irving Tyler, Distinguished VP Analyst

Key take-aways

The role of the CIO evolved steadily for 40 years pushed by changes in technology. The pandemic was a major pivot point, demonstrating the criticality of digital acceleration and the need for technology leadership by all executives. Leading CIOs are responding by changing how they create and deliver value as a member of the C-suite and leader of the IT function.

 

Treat Cybersecurity as a Business Decision

Speakers:  Paul Proctor, Distinguished VP Analyst

Key take-aways

Boards need guidance on how to govern cyber as a business issue. Cybersecurity is now the No. 1 spend item on the technology investment list. Cybersecurity investment is broken because no one can explain the business value of a security control, so the need for conversation about business investment in security is high.

Building a Digital Future: The Metaverse

Speaker:  Marty Resnick, VP Analyst

Key take-aways

Organizations should consider cautiously investing in the Metaverse, or at the very least explore it in detail because their digital future may be molded by it. CIOs and IT leaders must consider the Metaverse as a key trend that will provide opportunities and drive strategic business innovations beyond technology.

 

How to Use AI to Track and Plan for Future Skills

Speakers:  Rania Stewart, Sr Director Analyst

Key take-aways

How do you know you’ll have the skills you need in the future? How can you find and distribute work across business technologists? A first step is knowing what skills you have. Emerging AI capabilities make this easier. A first step is examining how CIOs and technology executives can take the lead and benefit greatly from investments in AI for skills data.

The New Value Imperative: It’s Time to Rethink Outdated Enterprise Value Formulas

Speaker:  Rita Sallam, Distinguished VP Analyst

Key take-aways

In today’s complex environment, organizations must create and realize value across stakeholders in new ways. Enterprise value formulas must take account of whether the value delivered to a range of stakeholders translates into full value received by the organization. Executive leaders can use Gartner’s new enterprise value model to make decisions that create sustainable long-term enterprise value and impact.

Emmanuel Acho, NYT Bestselling Author, Emmy Award Winner, Host & Fox Sports Analyst,

Behind every triumph, every expression of his gifts, Emmanuel Acho has had to ignore what everyone around him called “logic”: the astronomical odds against making it, the risks of continuing to dream bigger or differently. Instead of playing it safe, at every turn Acho has thrown conventional wisdom―logic―out the window. Now, he’s empowering others do the same. Whether it’s creating the next groundbreaking startup, fighting for change as an activist, or committing to a personal passion, Acho’s work is inspiring others to become change-makers. Enlivened by stories from his life and other illogical pioneers, Acho asks us to replace the limits set for us, and which we set for ourselves, with a world of possibility. Our horizons, he shows us, are endless.
