We’re counting down the days to Adapt CIO Edge, one of Australia’s premier in-person conference series for CIOs and IT leaders driving enterprise-wide modernisation. On Thursday 23 February in Melbourne, this conference will bring together technology executives from influential enterprise and government organisations to discuss and explore the CIO’s role in driving growth and leading innovation.


Creating a future-ready technology strategy 

Offering a full day of strategic business meetings, the conference agenda covers trends such as digital transformation, data, cloud, flexibility, and ESG, sharing lessons learned and providing practical ways to champion innovation-led growth. With such a packed agenda, imei looks forward to attending many sessions throughout the day, including the kick-off from Jim Berry, CEO at Adapt who will look at the impetus for CIOs to identify new sources of innovation and revenue, to ensure technology-driven growth.


CIO in ESG strategy

We’re also looking forward to the session by Bain & Company focused on the growth in data and how Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) metrics are quickly becoming competitive factors for both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) organisations.  

At a time when it’s increasingly critical to know where organisations stand on ESG and importantly how they rate against the competition, it’s critical that CIOs consider ESG factors when making technology decisions. 


Unlocking full value from technology

With many CIOs facing challenges to technology adoption and moving business priorities, the joint presentation from Deloitte and WalkMe on the need to extract the value of digital technology investments as quickly as possible promises to be fascinating. 


Making flexible work a success

In terms of the post-pandemic work world, there’s a session looking at research from the Future Forum, a consortium led by Slack, on digital being your HQ, where information needs to flow transparently, where you find people, resources, and secure information. At a time when success is measured on issues like inclusiveness, belonging and flexibility, interoperability and flexibility of your communications technology environment is now more important than ever. 

The day’s events also feature a series of executive insight roundtables covering everything from how to become a data-driven organisation to the need to de-risk to accelerate digital transformation, and IT modernisation and revenue growth.

At the conference, we are looking forward to talking to many of the CIOs about the changing nature of the CIO role and the biggest challenges they face when technology changes in an instant.
