Here are a few videos of these sessions. What strikes me now, a decade away from the specific topics being discussed, was that these CIOs were grappling (struggling, really) with the sweeping changes of globalization, across-the-board restructuring of how business is done, and a deluge of data, all accelerated by the tech boom of the late ’90s and then 9/11.
