CIO Forums

About CIO Forums

The Realcomm CIO Forum series is open to CIOs and other senior IT professionals in the commercial real estate development, REIT, owner, brokerage, investment management and related service industries in selected markets globally — New York, Sydney, Toronto, London, Chicago and San Francisco.

Each Forum is hosted by prominent local CIOs who volunteers their time and efforts in order to help facilitate the educational portions of these meetings.

The format generally includes both a "working" hosted luncheon and one or two presentations delivered by prominent local commercial real estate CIOs or, in some cases, guest speakers from outside our industry. As we strive to maintain high standards for participation, the Forums are "by invitation" only and seating is very limited.

Real Estate Investment Mgmt Forum - New York

PROGRAM
This inaugural Real Estate Investment Management Forum's theme is "Change the Culture – Change the Industry," which will explore multiple aspects and various approaches to digitally transforming a business culture. Giving the business an intuitive interface into the data (that literally defines the business) creates a significant competitive differentiator. We will see clear evidence that innovation is less about the available technologies and more about the people who are prepared to embrace change.

The Forum will provide an opportunity to interact with several technology leaders who are taking a proactive approach toward controlling any "disruption" within our industry as well as feature discussions on top-of-mind industry topics such as:

TIAA Workflow and Collaboration
Fred Schmidt, IT Director, TIAA

Real Estate CIO Forum - New York (Fall)

PROGRAM
For this CIO-focused event, we've created a series of interactive, small group workshops that will be presented in a 'round robin' format. Each will be facilitated by an industry professional and will focus on selected topics identified as being of key importance to both CIOs and operational technology strategists.

Attendees will break into small groups and will have the opportunity to attend each of the workshops:

  • Aligning Cybersecurity with Risk Management. The cyber threat landscape changes regularly, forcing real estate organizations to re-evaluate smart building security and business risk. We’ll discuss ideas to align security technologies with risk management processes and how to implement agile security solutions.

  • Core Principals of Digital Transformation for CRE Organizations. Robust digital technologies and expanding customer demands are driving disruption and transforming businesses and sectors. Discover the five core principals of digital transformation and how innovation labs can spur ideation and collaboration to enable breakthrough performance.

  • Defining Your Enterprise Architecture Strategy. Your business has updated its strategic plan and now faces the daunting challenge of structuring operations to achieve plan objectives. We’ll highlight the role that enterprise architecture can play in aligning structure, process, data, and technology to improve efficiency and goal realization.

  • The Art of the Board Presentation. You’re on the agenda for the next board meeting. Stakes are high, but how to you make sure your message connects? We’ll discuss strategies to prepare for the presentation, focusing on business, financial and risk issues as opposed to technical jargon, and techniques to hone your delivery.
