Session 1: CIOs Must Enable Business Agility via Modern Data Management in the Age of the Customer

Speakers: Craig Le Clair, Vice President, Principal Analyst

In the last ten years, 75% of global 500 companies have fallen off the list. Why? They did not manage change well. For many, digital disruptors took their place with business models based on Internet connectivity, cloud-based applications, and mobile devices that connect everywhere. To help build the agile enterprise, CIOs must move beyond traditional technology agility, and become agile in ten dimensions of market, organization, and process. As data pervades in the age of the customer, modern data management principles including abstraction, data virtualization, logical data layer that integrates all data, and data services are essential to business agility.

Join guest speaker Craig Le Clair, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research Inc., as he defines the Forrester business agility framework, which requires the CIO to have both ‘awareness’ and ‘execution’ competencies across all ten dimensions. He will argue the importance of modern data management and data virtualization for business agility, with Denodo providing examples of how successful companies have done just that.
