Northeast Indiana Chief Information Officer Forum

4Q15 Meeting - Has your business been UBER'ed yet?



Disruptive innovation is in action all around in all industries

Disruptive innovations are happening in industry after industry: publishing, telecom, music, video, hospitality, transportation, and _________.

The former CEO of Barclays, Antony Jenkins, predicted banks might be next – calling for a 50% headcount reduction in the next 10 years. Financial technologies, such as Square, Nutmeg and Funding Circle are eroding high margin product lines, while dancing around the tightened regulations facing banks.

And if your industry hasn't been affected yet, you should be planning for the change now. It doesn't matter whether you are a service or product company, a B2B or a B2C – the disruption is eminent.

So how do you manage stability and lead IT in the midst of the impending shift?


Join Us

Join us in December as we discuss a model that balances sustaining infrastructure as well as putting irons in the fire of disruptive innovation.

Seed the conversation early:
We'd love to hear more about your challenge and obstacles in making innovation a reality – send us your thoughts on disruptive innovation.

 The Northeast Indiana Chief Information Officer (CIO) Forum is comprised of Information Technology leaders (CIOs, IT Directors, and IT Strategists). We meet quarterly, generally from 7:30 – 9:30 AM in various locations, sponsored by the group or other strategic partners, to discuss IT issues, trends, and best practices. This conversational series of sessions are designed to allow the free and confidential exchange of ideas so that CIOs and IT leaders can optimize their Information Technology operation.

The Northeast Indiana CIO Forum self-select the topics. The attendance in the group is limited to optimize the discussion. It is not a sales meeting of any type, although we do review appliances, applications, tools, and methodologies. It is designed to help CIO and IT Leaders remain connected to technology trends.

Contact us at 260-403-5855 if you are interested in joining this group or sponsoring a quarterly meeting. Additionally various corporate sponsors host networking and learning events during the year. 


CIO Forum at a Glance

Educational Value: 

Connecting with peers is great. It provides us all with invaluable insights; but based on comments from the advisory committee we will now feature a technology briefing. This quarters meeting will feature a demonstration of Microsoft's cloud communication / collaboration tool Microsoft Lync.


Relationship Value: 

The forum members have enjoyed the predictability of our format; however the packed meeting did not optimize the potential for building of strong relationship. At the request of the advisory committee we will extend the meeting to 9:30 AM. This will respect your time and give opportunities to build strong relationships.
