#CIOChat: Thriving in the age of digital disruption

The digital revolution is in full swing. Who's winning and who's losing? Join #CIOChat on July 29 at 3 p.m. EST to discuss digital disruption and how to prosper in the information age.

Digital disruption is an unstoppable force in the enterprise, and leaves no industry unaffected. A slew of new technologies, products and services -- everything from IoT and wearables to Airbnb, Netflix and, of course, Uber -- are rapidly changing the way businesses operate and consumers engage. Some digital disruptors are even creating data value that didn't exist before by introducing entirely new, industry-rocking platforms.

CIOs can't change the course of this disruption, but they can influence how their companies handle it. The CIO role has evolved to become a vital resource in both steering digital innovation and adapting to these increasingly disruptive forces. Cutting-edge organizations are turning disruption into business gain, while others are falling victim to it. Who are the winners and losers? What can organizations do to stay ahead of the digital curve?

Join our #CIOChat on Wednesday, July 29, at 3 p.m. EST to discuss digital disruption in the enterprise. Discussion may include how to survive and thrive in the digital age, who are the pioneers and victims of disruption and where the digital revolution is headed next.
