The Road to Utopia: The Strategic and Uncommon Relationship between the CFO and the CIO - Sponsored by AVAST Software

Thursday, October 17 | 10:10AM–11:00AM | Ballroom C
Session Type: E13

We all know that great pairings can produce uncommon results, such as Hope and Crosby, Redford and Newman, Hepburn and Tracy, or Bogie and Bacall. The relationship between the CIO and the CFO (aka Senior Business Officer or SBO) has historically been a challenging one—for both! Rare, it seems, are the exemplars of aligned vision and close collaboration that advance IT's impact on the institution. Join EDUCAUSE Presidential Fellow Brian Voss in a conversation with CFOs who will explore this important and strategic relationship between CIOs and CFOs and the uncommon results great pairings can produce.
