    On the Journey to being a  Digitally Enhanced Enterprise 
    We are excited to bring back an ITMA favorite presenter, Bruce Rogow.
    Bruce has the pulse on IT trends from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies. In an informative and entertaining set of presentations and panels, Bruce will share what executives say they wish they had done as they tried to be digital or digitally enhanced businesses.  ITMA members will be in panels to describe their views.

    Bruce has been with us before. His practice of advising boards, CEOs and CIOs is based on his visits with literally hundreds of executives to share their experiences. Bruce also serves as a Principal of ICEX, a high end experience sharing boutique as well as providing insights for Cognizant’s thought leadership vehicles. His current focus is on what executives have learned as they attempt to make their businesses more digitally enhanced. Previously, he was a research affiliate of Don Tapscott, a Gartner Executive Fellow, Gartner EVP and Head of Global Research and Senior Managing Principal of Nolan, Norton & Co.
