IBM 2006 Global CEO Study - The Implications for the CIO
IBM's Global CEO Study 2006 was conducted to understand how CEO's view innovation, to capture current insights and to learn what is on their innovation agendas.  It tapped a broad cross-section of CEO's to understand how companies are enabling innovation and where they are focusing their innovative energies.  The study results have important messages for all business leaders but should be of particular interest to CIOs who have long been counted on to support and enable corporate innovation efforts. Based on the CEO's responses, three key considerations emerged for CIO's:

• Deep business model innovation is critical
• External collaboration is indispensable
• Innovation can be ignited by business and technology integration

Considerations like these have serious implications for CIO's, predominantly because they portray the IT organisation as a hindrance rather than an enabler of innovation. But they also point to a tremendous leadership opportunity for CIOs, who can provide strong vision and direction, while helping to spearhead enterprisewide innovation efforts.  There is little doubt that CIOs will be called upon to help drive innovation, but the greatest gains will be made by those who proactively construct the right mindset and infrastructure to enable it.

This presentation explores the key challenges and opportunities CIOs are facing as, CEO's look to expand their company's innovation horizon.

Session Five – Case Study
 “Importance of Enterprise and Customer Information Management  in creating growth opportunities for a Company”.

Most companies talk about understanding and meeting customer needs as a strong  requirement for organic growth. Unfortunately, the required capabilities have not been fully realized by most companies because of the hype  around (plus misuse, abuse and misunderstanding of) capabilities  like CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and Business Intellligence (BI). However, the importance of genuinely leveraging enterprise and customer information to generate organic growth  and create innovation still stands, and enterprise technology is a critical player in this.

In this talk, Charles Lawoko will discuss  the strategic importance of enterprise and customer information
and associated technology solutions, enablers and executional processes), and provide examples of leading practices, especially in the Financial Services Industry. He will also discuss how deep understanding and proper use of customer interactivity information leads to better customer service and experiences (hence developing ‘stickiness’). However, inspite of abundant examples of leading practices and good business outcomes, most Financial Services Companies still struggle to execute these capabilities well and/or realize returns on their investments.  Why is this? The common challengesfor these companies and examples of common mistakes will be discussed, and some recommended courses of action will be given.
