Business and technology leaders from across the state gather at Pinehurst for a golf tourney that includes breakfast, lunch and prizes presented at the Awards Luncheon. Regardless of your golf skills, it is a great opportunity to have some productive time away from the office and build critical relationships with tech leaders from across the state.

The popular CIO Foursome sponsorship allows sponsors to choose from committed CIOs to participate in their golf foursome for the day. Golfers are capped at 128, but there are other opportunities to participate.

Unlocking the Value in your Data (Virtual)

Is your company sitting on pools of data but without a strategic plan for using it?

When it comes to unlocking the value of data and monetising its insights, many companies are desperate for a new way to approach these issues. Some still erroneously see data (and other intangible assets) as an IT issue or cost centre. That perspective must change.

And it can change.

In this virtual workshop, Tyler Capson, Managing Director at global intangible asset advisory and valuation firm EverEdge Global, will offer some of the best tried-and-tested ways to approach managing your data.
