(Nasdaq: JIVE) webinar, titled "Redefining the CIO: From Cutting Costs to Driving Business Strategy," industry expert Brian Vellmure and CIOs from FICO and Spectrum Health will explore how IT is evolving beyond a traditional cost center into an organization that transforms the ways in which daily work gets done and fosters innovation.

During the session, CIOs will share their first-hand experiences and lessons learned while leading major digital transformations to produce added value for global organizations.

Panelists will be joined by leading industry analyst Brian Vellmure, who recently authored a new eBook titled, "Redefining the CIO: Envisioning and Enabling the Next Generation Enterprise."
