Citi Ventures Enterprise Tech Summit 2022

Enterprise CIOs and CTOs Panel

In this Opening Panels session, experienced Chief Information Officers (CIOs), Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) and other tech executives from leading enterprises discussed top-of-mind issues such as digital transformation, tech budget pressures in the post-pandemic economic downturn and how to pitch potentially transformative technology.

“Eighty percent of the [enterprise tech] budget is locked up, so the pitch must be ‘Here’s a problem I can help you solve,’” said Farhan Shah, CTO and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of Vantage Risk.
