Ask most small, midsize or enterprise technology leaders (CIOs and CISOs), and they’ll share the disruptive nature of AI on every conceivable aspect of their business. AI is a strategic priority, as is concern around the governance required to steward the needs of the C-suite and the board. AI and governance are being added to a plate already overflowing with cybersecurity/risk management, continued digital transformation, data privacy and compliance, IT infrastructure and cloud scaling, talent management, and the evolution of their leadership brand. This panel of buyers from the three most important customer segments will provide insight on how today’s priorities are impacting their purchasing decisions and relationships with partners — or directly with vendors. Takeaways for attendees include a game plan for how the deployment of AI pilots and proofs of concept impact spending, and how decision makers are thinking about their available resources and desired outcomes.
