Admittance to the CIO Roundtable is complimentary to any qualifying chief information officer registered to attend the 2007 IASA Annual Educational Conference & Business Show, June 3-6 in Minneapolis. 

The following informative sessions are available at the 2007 CIO Roundtable:

AT&T presents: "Enabling the Mobile Workforce." Enterprises today are conducting business in mobile environments—whether that is traveling to clients, working from remote locations, using cellular devices to communicate while on the move or being connected to corporate resources from an overseas hotel. Employees must keep connected regardless of where they are around the globe. Employers are striving for increased productivity, network control over remote resources, secure options for both employees and partners who do business with them and flexibility to embrace the newest technologies within their existing network infrastructure. 

Document Sciences presents: "Focusing on Customers: Composing and Delivering Data-Driven Documents." Learn from industry experts the benefits of having a customer-centric document composition strategy. A customer-centric strategy will ensure the ability to create the right document at the right time and in the right format to enhance the customer experience and also to improve your distribution channel communications capabilities. 

Duck Creek presents: "Using ASP and BPO to Save Dollars and Make Sense." In today's competitive business environment, insurance companies need to consider either an application service provider (ASP) or a business process outsourcing (BPO) model as a common-sense way to save dollars on tasks, such as billing, that are essential functions but companies don't depend upon to maintain their position in the marketplace.  With the ASP model, the insurance company maintains control over their internal function, but uses a third-party's applications and IT systems to process it. In the BPO model, the third-party takes over the complete responsibility for running the back-office function. This panel will explore the differences between the ASP and BPO models and discuss how insurance carriers are using them. 

OnBase Insurance Solutions by Hyland Software presents: "The Tao of Technology: The Path to Better Business." People have been talking about the challenge of aligning business and technology interests within an insurance company for years. So why is this still a hot topic? In the past, CIOs, IT staffs and critical systems were pigeonholed into an organizational support role that typically reported to either the CFO or the COO. Today, the importance technology plays in achieving an insurance company's strategic goals is more evident, and CIOs are stepping out of the shadows and into boardrooms across the country. In this session, expert panelists from both sides will discuss major alignment challenges using an enterprise content management (ECM) implementation example. Attendees will hear case study examples about ways technology executives presented ideas, systems and priorities to gain mainstream business acceptance within insurance.
