Jim Vaselopulos, Vice President, PSC Group

In this session, attendees will be provided with a framework that they can use to make sure they are achieving a solid ROI through their investments.




2:30pm - 3:00pm - Refreshment Break

Reneke

3:00pm-4:00pm

Kick the 80/20 Budget Habit - How to Free up Funds from Operational to Innovation

Frank Reneke, Group Vice President, Corporate Strategy, Rimini Street, Inc.

The one and only way CIOs can unlock the funding necessary to pursue those snazzier and unquestionably vital new initiatives like Cloud, Social, Mobile is to make a bold decision and take an entirely new approach to their IT spending. Far too many companies today find that they need to devote 70% or even 80% of their IT budget just to run and maintain what they’ve already got, leaving as little as 20% for innovation. CIOs need to determine which vendors are exacerbating this problem, and which ones offer modern alternatives that are cheaper, faster, and smarter.

CIOs willing to tackle this huge issue will not only earn some nice bonus dollars and recognition but also will unlock huge value for their companies, as a result.

Many enterprises are still spending nearly two-thirds of their IT investments on projects that do not differentiate the organization. To increase IT's impact on business performance, IT executives needs to start investing in areas that generate revenue, decreases costs and increase innovation.
In this session, attendees will learn from leading CIOs who will discuss the results they have achieved through this approach.
