With this episode of the BizTech Review I'm delighted to introduce a new series—the CIO Workshop. I will present conversations with CIOs who are "in the trenches" so they can share their experiences, lessons learned, and other golden nuggets as only real practitioners can. I'll feature these interviews as opportunities to speak with industry-leading CIOs arise.
We have a really interesting interview to kick-off this new series—I speak with Steve Bozzo who is the CIO and Senior VP at 1800flowers.com. Steve will tell us how his company has evolved from being one of the very first companies on the web to one of the most successful and innovative users of web technology and IT. Steve and I are also fellow members of the Board of Advisors at the CIOZone, which makes this interview even more special—and provides a good illustration of why the CIOZone is a thought leader in 21st century IT.
As always, thanks for listening—and for pointing your friends and colleagues in our direction!
