On November 6, 2018 we are honored to have Erin Allen of Sargento presenting on Strengthening Business & IT Relationships.
We’ve been talking about Business-IT alignment for years and yet it still feels out of reach for many IT organizations. Surveys of business leaders show technology spend outside of the CIO budget is growing at a faster pace partly because IT is too slow to respond to business needs but also because the lines between enterprise IT and business-led technology are blurring. During this meeting, Erin will cover some actions you can take to strengthen the relationship between Business and IT.
Erin Allen is currently the Director of IT Strategy and Architecture at Sargento Foods Inc. Her team is responsible for technology innovation and working with business leaders in roadmap development that uses technology to accomplish business goals. Previously, Erin was at Harley-Davidson as a Digital Product Manager where she co-lead Digital Strategy development. Having spent over 20 years in software development and architecture practices across several industries, Erin loves to help people envision the art of the possible through emerging technologies.
We look forward to this presentation!
