WITI South Florida Regional Network
Bringing Enterprise IT Value: The Powerful Role of Technology in Today's Organizations!

Wednesday, February 11, 2004
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Space is limited.... RSVP today!

Featuring Rebecca Rhoads, CIO & Vice President, Raytheon Company

Enterprise Value: not just a buzz phrase anymore, it is so integral to a company that the spotlight continues to intensify each year. Everyone from company business leaders to market analysts to the Board is demanding the utmost value for IT investments.

Defining enterprise value can be tricky - it is multi-dimensional, specific to the enterprise, and inherently difficult to demonstrate. Financial gain is by no means the only measure of value in today's organizations - the highest technology value has far-reaching impact on an enterprise and on its industry. CIO Magazine's Annual Enterprise Value Awards recognizes achievement of value on 5 dimensions.

We are honored to have Rebecca Rhoads, CIO of Raytheon, and a CIO Enterprise Value Awards judge, speak with us about determining, measuring and articulating enterprise value, and share stories of the companies and the technologies that have won this year's CIO Enterprise Value Awards.

Rebecca will describe the process used for evaluating enterprise value, and help you see how you, as a technology professional, can bring enterprise value front and center in your initiatives. Rebecca is an engaging and thoughtful CIO, with insights you'll value and leverage along your career journey.
