CIOs are being tasked with a dual mandate of reducing IT costs, while spearheading the innovation agenda for the enterprise. The innovation agenda is strongly influenced by the increasing number of employees and customers that come from the category of millennials or digital natives. Taking advantage of this changing landscape requires a strong end-to-end IT foundation that can drive optimal leverage of existing IT assets as well as provide a modern millennial user experience. This keynote discusses the changes in the IT landscape and how an end-to-end IT strategy and compatible tooling can help deliver on this promise.
