IT Roundtables

The IT Roundtables brings together c-suite leaders who have primary decision making responsibility for their organizations technology functions.

Program Overview

The IT Roundtable is made possible through a partnership between the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber and IT Ally, a Cincinnati based IT Management Advisory firm. This program empowers leaders to think about how to leverage technology to create business value within their organization.

Roundtable participants collaborate in a safe and confidential forum where ideas can be freely expressed and respectfully challenged. Both private and nonprofit technology leaders share their unique challenges and opportunities in managing technology complexity.
