Our Australian TBM Summit 2015 agenda will include some of the most forward-thinking IT leaders in the world, coming together to explore today’s technology trends, challenges and opportunities, as well as showcasing how they are transforming their businesses with Technology Business Management (TBM).

Imagine a brain trust of IT’s sharpest minds from world-leading organisations, all gathered together to discuss strategies that further technology-business alignment. That vision defines the Australian TBM Summit.

The TBM Council was established in 2012 as an independent nonprofit by 15 of the most progressive CIOs in the IT industry. The mission of the TBM Council is to advance the profession of IT globally by creating a platform for collaboration, advancing education, and setting unified standards that allow IT to be run like a business. Fundamentally, the TBM Council empowers IT leaders to strategically invest in technology, improve communication with their business partners, and ultimately leverage technology to foster innovation.

We now count nearly 1,700 senior business and technology leaders as members, with countless more joining daily. Our purpose is to convey the art of the possible to each member of the TBM Council and events like our APAC TBM Summits help us do just that.
