Selling to the CTO- The CTO/Technology Decision Makers Role During this Global Economic Crisis and How Tighter Budgets Are Influencing Their Acquisition Decisions.

Today, the world remains in the throes of one of the worst ever economic downturns since the Great Depression. Corporate profits have taken significant hits and government budgets are under significant duress. Yet technology innovations may hold the ticket to better productivity, more competitiveness and a way out of this current economic slump. The job of the Technology Decision Maker is more significant and more challenging than ever. How are these technology decision makers seeing their role evolve within their organization and how are they influencing the way their organizations are responding to the economic crisis? How can we better support their efforts, respect their time and help solve their problems on the way to the sale and in delivering our firm's products and services?

NVTC's Sales, Business Development and Marketing Committee teams up with its Business to Government Committee to host top technology leaders for this captivating panel discussion on how IT vendors can help them achieve their latest corporate and government initiatives.
