Roundtable on Digital Strategies

The Roundtable on Digital Strategies delivers an ongoing series of business dialogues for CIOs (chief information officers) and top-level executives of global corporations from Europe and the Americas to share insights into the enabling role of digital/information technology in meeting business challenges. In focused discussions that cut across organizations and industries, participants from non-competing member corporations examine meaningful business issues and topical challenges they have in common. Members choose the topics each year, so the discussions are always relevant to their real-world concerns.
