The advent of cloud computing, social media analysis, mobility and applications on demand is changing the role of the CIO in businesses of all sizes. The CIO has an unprecedented opportunity to leverage their expertise to partner with the "new power brokers" within their businesses (including a massive shift toward the "empowered CMO"). In this fast moving, provocative session Arthur Tisi, successful founder of several technology companies, former CIO of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and current CIO of the Foodie and Financial Juggernaut Fairway Market , will offer a unique perspective on the new role of the CIO. Tisi will be joined by UBM Editorial VP Eric Lundquist to analyze and engage with the audience in delving into this critical business role.
