We are pleased to share our full 2017 agenda, which is based on the results of our annual CIO Agenda survey designed to identify the most critical priorities for CIOs globally. 

  • Find out what Gartner has learned from 2,500 + CIOs this year that will inform your decisions for 2017 and beyond. 


Track A: CIO
Define your stepping stones to progress from Digital vision to digital actions
There are only two paths to digital business; be a disruptor or join the disruptor’s ecosystem. CIOs play a crucial role in transforming the enterprise (and IT), no matter which path your business executive team chooses. The path chosen determines necessary investments in people, processes, technologies and governance. Join us to define your stepping stones.
Track B: Security & Risk
Security and Risk Management: Build Trust and Resilience at the Speed of Business
Your business is moving toward full digitalization and it demands agility. But that digitalization means more dependence on leading edge technology in an environment of ever increasing threats. Many CIOs are stretched between these two extreme demands. Your Digital Business strategy needs a Digital Security strategy. You must build trust and resilience at the new speed of business. 
Track C: CxO
An organization has become a Digital Business when it has created a line of business that becomes a new line item on the income statement that exceeds traditional net profits. Most CxOs are stuck in a cycle of ambition and design, and are struggling to get funding and make money from Digital Business. New business models, leadership, culture and customer experience will enable CxOs to stop innovating and start transforming.
Track D: Data & Analytics:
Harnessing the Power of Data and Analytics for Digital Business Success
Together, data and analytics are taking center stage as the single most powerful catalyst for change in the enterprise. This is especially true within the digital enterprise which is having to handle new types of digitally-derived data, growing data volumes, and heightened busienss user demands. Companies will need to take a more aggressive approach to data governance, building analytics strategies, preparing for the new trends (e.g., IoT, Hadoop, and blockchain), and maximizing the ROI from all data initiatives. Finding ways to short-term create the right data foundation is essential, and long-term turning data into information which can be used for strategic advantage will be the tactics used among industry leaders.
Excellent sessions, analyst one-on-ones and networking opportunities. It is great to have an exclusive venue in Latin America where CIOs can talk and share experiences.
