CIO/CISO Boston Summit Recap

April 26th, 2018 – Omni Parker House Boston, MA

While the overall theme of our Boston CIO and CISO Summits was “Digital Transformation is a Journey, Not a Destination”, a key takeaway was the importance of understanding digital transformation in today’s climate.

Matt Griffiths, CIO at Stanley Industrial, kicked off the day with his keynote focused on The 4th Industrial Revolution. After reviewing the previous industries and their revolutions, Griffiths covered the new technologies and the new expectations of Industry 4.0. He concluded with four key takeaways:

  1. The new world will not be built on the foundations of the old one.
  2. Be brutally self-critical of existing IT process and culture.
  3. Bi-Modal IT was a stepping stone to Intrinsic Technology Innovation.
  4. Balancing maintenance and innovation is more critical than ever.
