Technology Adoption: Driving AI transformation and Business Impact

With the explosion of automation and AI soltions, both tech giants and their customers are once again thrown into a technology-driven race to identify and adopt the technology that can provide a business advantage.

This places demands on both the IT organisation, suppliers and, not least, the modern, business-oriented CIO. 

Join us when we at CIO of the Year 2024, together with Denmark's best CIOs, debate and challenge the existing dogmas about operations, working methods - and how technology can provide a decisive advantage when the organisation is also ready to change.

Why Attend?

The CIO of the Year is the day when we highlight and celebrate the good role models. It is the day we can talk about the essential change we are creating from IT and the critical impact it has on the continued success of our organisations. 

Join us when we:

  • Hear about the efforts and experiences of the five nominees for the title of CIO of the Year 2024.
  • Discuss the priorities and technologies amongst CIOs in 2024.
  • Hear presentations from keynotes, leading suppliers and other technology leaders.
  • Network, share experiences and celebrate the important transformation of the CIO role.
