Steve Sheinheit knows that there are a lot of concerns on the minds of today's CIOs and IT executives. Sheinheit has spent more than 30 years in executive IT management in the financial services industry, including eight years as CIO of JP Morgan Chase.
He will be speaking at the World BPO/ITO Forum in New York City on July 17 and 18, sharing his knowledge of how CIOs can deal with the many transformational forces tugging at them. Business process outsourcing is one set of solutions that enables CIOs to focus core competencies internally while outsourcing those aspects of operations that help form a successful "extended enterprise."
In this podcast with Scot Petersen, editorial director of the business applications and architecture group at TechTarget, Sheinheit gives a preview of his talk: "The Evolving Role of the Successful CIO -- May the Force(s) be with You!" He also discusses the key areas of transformation that are pulling CIOs and their companies in the direction of BPO.
