This implies a constant job of predicting what is going to happen next -- at your company, in technology advancements, in competitive marketplace conditions, and more. Our Predictions Panelists are asked to take the stage and share insights they foresee for 2020. Which Prediction will crown the next #ITpsychic?

Featured Speaker Headline

Global Head of Security Architecture, Schroders

Ashraf Aboukass

Every year at CXOsync we explore directions from within the Office of the CIO; what are these strategists planning and what paths are they taking? Through these discussions we're able to understand their paths and identify industry trends. By pairing our audience with a selection of industry innovators on edge of product and solution development for the enterprise we're able to incubate true thought-leaders with actionable technology. From leading blue-chips like IBM, Microsoft and CISCO to newly funded start-ups this is where we gather the latest and greatest.

It was my first time attending one of these events, and I feel it was worth it.  I appreciate some of the contacts I made during the event and I’m likely to return next year.

Thank you for hosting the event yesterday. I was very impressed with the content and how organized everything was.I found it very worthwhile and appreciate the invite.

- Denver Public Schools 


I have attended a couple of the CIO events and have enjoyed each one.  I was leery when I attended my first CIO conference as my time is limited and want to get the most from the conferences I attend.  I was happy to find the conference beneficial and enjoyable.  Each conference is unique and the discussions are timely and meaningful.  Insights of other attendees and the speakers are valuable and insightful.  The host of each of the conferences I have attended has been both talented at keeping the discussions lively and meaningful and has extensive I.T. knowledge.
