Tune in Wednesday, Nov. 12 from 9:30am-6:30pm ET to a free virtual conference with Microsoft and CIO magazine, titled “The Intelligent Enterprise: Incorporating Systems and Strategies to Create a Highly Responsive Organization.”

The conference will address how senior business technologists can align IT and business, achieve agility, reduce complexity, provide one view of data across the business and, of course, cut costs. The conference will seek to answer how to tie together all these objectives and create an IT organization that is capable of responding to business needs in real time.

The answer lies in the efficient use of data and IT resources. By effectively streamlining systems and packaging data, the IT organization can quickly provide the business with critical data to improve decision-making and gain a competitive edge. These topics are particularly important to the Integrated Utility of the Future which is the vision held by the Microsoft’s Worldwide Utility Group where there is an Integration of systems across the Utilities ecosystem and Utilities have Instant access to the information they need.
