Valintry V.P. Chris Blair Returns from Gartner CIO Conference with Valuable Lessons

A sign of the company's commitment to staying at leading edge of industry, Blair's trip revealed important new priorities for CIOs in the Dallas area and beyond, Valintry reports


Allen, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/09/2015 -- Chris Blair, a VP of Business Development for Valintry, one of the Dallas region's leading financial, IT consulting and staffing specialists, returned from the recent Gartner, Inc., CIO conference in Grapevine armed with important information for businesses in the area, the company reports. More than 75 Chief Information Officers from leading Dallas-area companies attended the conference, an event that centered around a discussion of what many see as the inevitable intertwining of technology and business operations.

Thoroughly committed to staying at the leading edge of the technology industry, Valintry sends representatives to a number of events like the recent Gartner conference every year, thereby building up the company's formidable expertise and capabilities to support clients and the never ending march of technology progress.

"I'm happy to report that Gartner CIO conference in Grapevine was a great success, with many interesting and valuable ideas being exchanged," Blair reported, "It was a privilege to represent Valintry at the event, and we are already making good use of what I learned there."

As the world's top IT research and consulting firm, Gartner, Inc., partners with over 9,000 companies worldwide, offering up a wide range of valuable services. Across 85 countries, Gartner's 6,600 associates and 1,500 research analysts empower clients to make the most of their Information Technology resources, helping to transform companies in ways that make them more capable, efficient, and profitable.

With a strong reputation as one of the Dallas area's leading IT, financial staffing and consulting firms, national-scale Valintry regularly interfaces with companies like Gartner and others throughout the country. Monitoring local technology trends, Valintry, unlike many competitors, maintains a broader, forward-looking engagement pipeline with a wide range of companies, through its consulting and staffing services.

Valintry VP Chris Blair's attendance at the recent Gartner CIO conference in Grapevine is just an example of the Valintry organizational commitment to evolve with the needs of our clients. Aimed at the Dallas area's top IT leaders, the conference focused on how these executives must evolve to master the shifting requirements and challenges of the contemporary business world and the importance of the mutual support of IT and Operations

Gartner representatives, for example, encouraged CIOs to take a more active role in the creation of overall corporate vision, instead of merely confining themselves to implementation, as many have historically done. They also pointed out the hazards inherent in the increasingly common development of marketing departments dictating IT priorities and projects, urging CIOs to counteract these moves by becoming more innovative and focused on developing talent, thereby earning themselves greater respect in the C-suite.

By evolving in these ways, Gartner recommends and Valintry agrees, that CIOs in the Dallas area can become even more successful and valuable to their organizations. Valintry is already putting what Blair learned into practice for the company's clients, producing results that truly matter, as the company's very positive consulting, financial and IT staffing testimonials demonstrate.
