CIO Whisperer- How to Become Your CIO’s Trusted Advisor

Gone are the days when the CIO once operated in a silo from the rest of the business. No longer are there instances when architects and their managers talk IT without a discussion on the impact to the business’ bottom line.

CIOs often find themselves caught between the business hammer and the technology anvil. It is time for technologists to step forward and stand alongside their CIOs and use their skills to enable change in IT. Increasingly, technologists must bridge the gap between IT and the core business, to better inform their CIOs with the goal of being a close confidant. In fact, IT is becoming a crucial part of the core business.

After going through our own digital transformation, both at VMware and Dell Technologies, I look forward to sharing tips on how technologists can use their tech, organizational and cultural know-how to enable successful transformation.

Join me, VMware strategist Art de Blaauw, and principal business solutions strategist Elan Yanovsky, to learn how we talk technology in a business context and how we have successfully become trusted advisors.

Join us on Monday, August 28 from 2:00-3:00PM at VMworld U.S. and Tuesday, Sep. 12, from 11:00-12:00 at VMworld Barcelona.

VMworld 2017: Introducing the Digital Transformation Track

It’s almost VMworld time of year again! And this year, I’m excited to personally invite all who are now, or will someday be, leaders of IT to our newly introduced “Leading the Digital Transformation” track at this year’s show.

Led by VMware IT leaders, practitioners, and customers, the track has more than 30 sessions. They’re loaded with pragmatic guidance on topics like implementing a transformation strategy, modernizing the data center, integrating public clouds, empowering digital workspaces, and transforming security.

Given the current necessity to digitize businesses, the timing couldn’t be better. As technology evolves at light speed, so too should management. IT practitioners must begin to look at themselves as IT leaders of the future. Our goal is to prime these emerging leaders and inspire innovation.

Check some additional thoughts of mine on why empowering people is so important for the future of IT.

Take advantage of our Leading Digital Transformation Track to learn about how customers like you are building and executing strategies for transformation across cloud, mobility and security to meet their business goals.

Register now for VMworld U.S. 2017, August 27–31 in Las Vegas, or September 11–14 in Barcelona, and sign up today for an indispensable series of sessions created specifically for you as IT leaders.
