Victoria Victoria Bunyard is the CTO for IBM Northern Europe. She has an extensive background in Systems Engineering, Enterprise Architecture and Technology Transformation. She firmly believes that technology can be ‘the answer’, but only when we truly understand ‘the question’ – and that it is not about how great the tech is, but about how great we can be when we are backed by great tech. Having worked in many industries she has learned the three fundamentals at the center of successful technology transformation: 1) Context is key, 2) The devil is in the dependency, 3) Technology is a team sport.
