POC - 3rd Annual CIO Summit

3rd Annual CIO Summit | Potomac Officers Club


Over the past year, chief information officers across the public and private sectors have led initiatives incorporating innovative technologies like blockchain, cloud-based architectures and Agile processes to strengthen organizational security in response to urgent COVID-19 demands. 

As CIOs work to advance modernization initiatives, merge into multi-cloud environments and replace outdated legacy infrastructures, they must leverage their industry partnerships to support federal agencies’ constantly evolving missions.

At the Potomac Officers Club’s 3rd Annual CIO Summit, chief information officers spanning government and private sector organizations will gather to exchange invaluable insights on the current challenges, priorities and future goals they face as they continue to spearhead innovation strategies.
