Find out about UCLA WINMEC CIO Forum 2006 - Feb 7

The event will be held at UCLA on March 7, 2005. Select CIOs from Fortune 500 companies will present their viewpoints on the opportunities and the challenges they are facing due to convergence of I.T. technologies, solutions and services. This one-day event will investigate how convergence of various technologies and business practices is changing the function and perception of I.T. across enterprise functions.  Topics include information technology security, mobility management, strategy, data management, digital rights management, content management, roaming, cost concerns, mobile-CRM, business continuity, integration of mobile technologies with supply chain, productivity gains, and more.  These changes are resulting in the job function of the CIO itself to change, which the CIOs will discuss as well.
