The second event in ARN’s Insight Series drew a packed room at the Establishment in Sydney. More than 90 people heard IDG managing director, Davy Adams, present top line results from the 2014 State of the CIO Survey. Additionally, a panel of CIOs - moderated by CIO Executive Council A/NZ general manager, Caroline Bucknell - discussed their top business challenges, IT's evolving role and the shift in expectations of commercial arrangements. The panel featured Allan Davies (chief information officer, Dematic), Tony Ritchie (general manager, digital and information technology, Virgin Money Australia) and Chris Clark (group information officer at GrainCorp). Post-event feedback confirmed the need for the Insight series with strong attendee feedback regarding both the high quality of information disseminated and the number of new and important contacts made.
