WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sonian, a pioneer in cloud-based archiving and analytics, today announced that the company’s CTO and founder, Greg Arnette, will speak at the upcoming ITEXPO conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. At the event, happening February 8-10 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, Arnette will lead a discussion on the evolving role of chief information officers (CIOs), and how they can reclaim value at each level of their organizations by providing data insights.
With the rise of SaaS solutions, employees from various business departments are making IT decisions without involving CIOs and their IT teams. As a result, the role of the CIO has been marginalized and many CIOs have found themselves more focused on overseeing maintenance-related tasks than spearheading innovation-fueled initiatives. CIOs can ensure their role doesn’t become obsolete by analyzing the data on which their companies already sit. Through this analysis, they can offer valuable insights to help guide important business decisions.
“There’s no question that the CIO role is evolving. To regain relevance and meet the needs of today’s businesses, CIOs can apply their unique skill set to the data they already have,” said Arnette. “ITEXPO attracts the best of the best in communications and technology, and I look forward to leading the discussion on the opportunity for them to steer decision-making processes through data analytics.”
ITEXPO brings together the global communications and technology communities – including enterprise, government and SMB end users, developers, media, analysts and more – for networking events, panels and thought leadership discussions on today’s most powerful communications solutions.
Arnette’s session, “From CIO to CDO: How to Drive Innovation and Value with Data,” will be held on Wednesday, February 8 at 9 a.m EST as part of the “Hot Topics in Tech and Communications” track. For more information and to register for ITEXPO 2017, please visit the ITEXPO website.
