IT peer group meeting

Information Technology

The Information Technology Peer Group, led by Heidi Rozmiarek, is designed to provide an in-depth, sophisticated forum for peer-to-peer discussion and member company presentation of key strategies. We welcome those interested in this field to attend events and delve into both ongoing challenges as well as emerging technologies for CTOS, directors and senior IT managers. The topics that were recently covered include data engineering, the future of digital transformation, and redefining security.

Special Interest Groups bring together members with a shared interest in a specific topic for in-depth discussion over several meetings.

The IT practice area currently has two Special Interest Groups: Agile IT and Predictive Analytics.
