Webinar Summary

As technology changes, so must IT  

In this high-risk, high-reward era of disruptive technologies, the role of IT is pivotal. As organizations rush to extract value from technologies such as generative AI, IT must lean into the steep curve of change and lead the charge.

But fortune will favor the bold
