How to Make Trusted Technology Investment Decisions to Drive Durable Growth

22nd September 2022, Palo Alto 18:30 - 21:30 PDT
In partnership

Dinner Location: Vina Enoteca

What steps can your organization take to proactively manage technology budgets and continue to deliver value in an uncertain market?

Welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with Apptio and Accenture.

Just as we were all forced to react quickly to the global pandemic, we are all now faced with having to remain prepared for uncertainty in the future. Organizations will need to refocus, replan, and rethink their technology investments to stay resilient and ensure future success.

The key to success in challenging times is being able to move with agility, intention, and a growth mindset. And, over the course of this evening, we will hear thought leadership from Sunny Gupta, co-founder and CEO of Apptio, Jason Byrd, the Managing Director of Global Technology Strategy and Advisory from Accenture, and Greg Sly, the SVP Platforms and Infrastructure at Verizon, as we discuss ways to maximize your technology investments while rethinking strategies to deliver on digital objectives – and, ultimately, drive durable growth in the future.

And, so, from the entire team at Meet the Boss, Apptio and Accenture, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course

We hope to see you in Palo Alto!
