“Integration has moved into the top 10 top priorities of Australian CIOs and IT managers.

“The need to provide accessibility to critical business systems and information for the on-demand enterprise has resulted in CIOs searching for improved efficiencies and effectiveness through systems integration” added Ms Bennett.

This event will examine the Integration issues and challenges that currently face CIOs and IT Managers today. Topics covered at this event will include; how to determine the ROI for integration investments, Multi-Line management, consolidated customer care, knowledge management & Business Intelligence and operating efficiency for cost containment & reduction.
