PART 1: BECOMING A DATA-DRIVEN ENTERPRISE
As more and more data piles up each day, the role of the CIO becomes ever more important: How can we take as much information as possible from the environment, quickly synthesize it all, and make real time, informed decisions linked to business outcomes? The first half of our session will bring together a group of CIO executives to discuss our experiences, share learnings and best practices, and highlight how we are enabling our businesses to become smarter through data-driven insights and approaches.

PART 3: NEURODIVERSITY AS A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
Our closing CIO Virtual Keynote will feature a dynamic Fireside Chat with the leaders of an organization created to leverage the power of neurodiversity as a competitive advantage to deliver Quality Assurance & Engineering for customers. 75% of their employees are on the autism spectrum, many of whom have a heightened aptitude for pattern recognition, systems thinking and complex problem solving that makes them exceptional at delivering business value. Traditional business practices can penalize individuals who are wired differently, which has led Ultranauts to reimagine how a company recruits, develops, and manages neurodiverse talent into a high-performing team. Join to hear best practices and practical approaches to embedded neurodiversity into organizational DNA and functional workforce strategy.
