The Game of Value in the AI-enabled organization.

Organizations are constrained because additional business value has to be delivered with the same resources. This pressure is increasing in both business and IT. Driving business value has become more important than ever before. Organizations are on a journey where they need to make value trade-offs in the backlog of use cases and projects. The challenge is to choose the most valuable backlog items, taking the perspective of all stakeholders into consideration, while (re-)using the data products and IT artifacts in the landscape in a clever way. Balancing short-term benefits and long-term contributions to a more sustainable business model provides an additional challenge.

Trevor Didcock

NED Affinity Water, ACOG and Futurice,

I am certain that I will speak for all members of the advisory board in applauding your fantastic thought leadership through the last year. Plotting a path through everything that has gone on, and continues to go on, is no easy task and yet you and the UK and European team have done a brilliant job in researching key topics, facilitating quality debate and writing thought provoking papers. There is no doubt in my mind that CIONET is the premier networking and thought leadership vehicle available to technologists. I know we have the likes of Gartner and Forrester etc but in terms of getting smart people together to talk about important and prescient things – nobody does it better!

Mark Parr

Global Director of Information Technology, HFW

Being able to continue to attend CIONET events over the last year, has been invaluable.  The topics discussed are always insightful, with the added benefit of hearing from peers across various sectors.  For me, having the opportunity to be involved in a conversation that can provide perspectives I hadn't considered and that allows me to connect with other digital leaders who are facing similar challenges is vital. From joining the very many CIONET discussions, I have be able to share experiences and ideas and to learn about new technologies and concepts.  With events being conducted in such a way as to promote conversation (ably chaired by Roger Camrass), I am able to make better informed decisions that will allow me to help shape the delivery of technology across my organisation.

Keith Baxter

CIO, Anthony Nicholas Group

“Being a member of CIONET has been a great journey. The knowledge share and access to various webinars and the wider tech community has given me greater opportunities and helped me be more successful in driving technology change”
CIONET UK - Natasha Davydova

Natasha Davydova


“The CIONET discussion on ‘Company as a Platform’ reinforced my decision on the career move from the banking industry to Salesforce, one of the most innovative, industry-leading customer success platform companies, providing the world’s leading enterprise cloud ecosystem. This is where I see the core of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
