Intelligence Sharing – What are You Doing to Stay Up On the Latest Threats?

Success Stories in Attracting, Developing, and Retaining Employees. What is the Secret Sauce?

Digital Transformation

Transition to Cloud Computing – Lessons Learned

Supplier Collaboration for Driving Innovation

Session Description

A panel of Security Operation Center subject matter experts will discuss how they are effectively operationalizing intelligence from the government, sharing forums, and other companies to identify, respond and contain the latest threats

Employers face major challenges with the increasing difficulty of finding skilled people, a millennial workforce with different attitudes about work, a growing population of older workers heading toward retirement, ever changing technology that requires continuous skill updates and the growing demand for IT talent.

What is the secret sauce to creating, managing, developing and motivating a strong technically equipped talent pool?

What are companies doing to digitally transform their organizations?  This session will discuss how Digital Transformation varies across industries and company size. What worked? What didn't?

Transformational impact on:
- Customer Experience
- Digital Culture
- Real-time Analytics
- Digital Culture

Businesses are in very different stages of maturity/progress in their Cloud strategies -- evaluating, piloting, testing, and even moving critical production services to Cloud Computing platforms. What have been the key learnings?

This session goes beyond the hype/promises and presents real world results including cost expectations, security, rapid deployment, flexibility, support expectations….

Innovation is critical to maintaining a competitive edge for any business and IT is increasingly being asked to deliver innovative solutions that add value and provide for competitive differentiation. How do leading IT organizations leverage their relationships with existing suppliers to significantly grow the innovation pipeline without the high R&D costs?
           

Session

Security Metrics that Matter – Real Time Insight into Cyber Risks

Bringing IT Back In-House (or not?)

Humanism/Human Centric Design/Human Machine Interaction.

Big Bang or Incremental Change? How Aggressively Should Organizations Evolve to Deliver IT Solutions?

Nail It and Scale It – Leveraging Start-up Agility and Deliver Enterprise Scale.

Session Description

Are the investments you are making in people, process, and technology having the desired tangible outcomes? How do you know? This session will provide real life examples of how business intelligence and analytics software, as well as the actual threats you are seeing, can be used to provide real time insight into cyber risks while also helping to drive budgetary decisions.

There was a big rush to outsource IT 10+ years ago, but now the pendulum may be shifting back to insourcing.

In this session we will hear from leaders who have faced the following questions:
• What is the business case for bringing IT Back In House?
• What type of work is conducive to outsourcing/insourcing in the current ecosystem?
• What are the best practice for bringing work back in-house after it has been outsourced?
• How does career management evolve during this trend shift?
• What impact is this trend having on your recruiting/hiring/retention strategies? 

 

Human–computer interaction (HCI) researches the design and use of computer technology, focusing on the interfaces between people (users) and computers. Researchers in the field of HCI both observe the ways in which humans interact with computers and design technologies that let humans interact with computers.

Machines are learning and adapting via sensors & data analytics, focus on outcome. How are machines driving interactions between eachother, without human involvement?

There are a number of ways IT organizations can accelerate the pace at which they deliver solutions for the Enterprise.
• Are the right projects being worked on (e.g. Portfolio Management)?
• Appropriate methodology (e.g. Agile vs. Waterfall, etc.)
• Speed to Production Environment (e.g. DevOps)

Should organizations address these various topics one-at-a- time or all at once?

Leveraging startups for quick experimentation can be a key strategy in today’s quickly changing business world, but it requires learning how to work with and utilize start-ups. Simply put, you cannot manage startup relationships like you manage relationships with your large enterprise partners.

Come hear success stories from companies who have figured out the relationship structure and processes to fully leverage the agility and innovation of startups to “nail it” so you can “scale it.

Hiring and Devloping Security Personnel

IT Organization of the Future

Wearable Technology – Business or Pleasure?

DevOps - Is This All Hype or is it Reality?

Prescriptive Analytics --The Power of Transforming Big Data into Business Results

Session Description

IT Security continues to be the top of mind for all CIOs. The landscape continues to evolve and it has become increasingly difficult to stay on top of all the latest issues. Finding experienced and qualified security candidates is very difficult.

This session will explore the options of recruiting experienced security people versus broadening existing IT personnel through specific training programs. Where do you start your search and what training sources are available?

Significant change forces are creating a need for CIO’s to consider new organizational models/designs. These factors/forces include the overriding need for agility/flexibility, significant technology changes (Cloud, DevOps,  etc), workforce changes (Millenials, freelancers, talent shortage, etc.), government policy (Affordable Care Act, Immigration/H1-B, etc.).

The discussion will highlight the most impactful factors, possible changes to be made, and offer some real world examples of organizations who are making these kind of changes and identify emerging “patterns”.

Digital wearable technology is one of the most exciting emerging areas within the Internet of Things.

Come hear from experts and early adopters how wearable technology is on the cusp of revolutionizing industries from Retail, Healthcare, Construction, Manufacturing and even Sports/Entertainment.

The promise of DevOps is to establish an environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably. It emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes.

This session will provide an overview of approaches Technology organizations are utilizing to implement and grow DevOps disciplines within their enterprises.

Prescriptive Analytics, is the third phase of the Analytics Maturity Curve (Descriptive, Predictive, and Prescriptive). It goes beyond predicting future outcomes by also suggesting actions to benefit from the predictions and showing the implications of each decision option.

This session will present an overview of "Prescriptive Analytics," and how companies have pursued and benefitted from Prescriptive Analytics.

11:00am - 417 | Developing Your Cloud Transition Strategy – How To Do It?

Erik Berggren

VP of Research, Cloud Strategies
IDC

In this session we’ll provide a strategic overview of what cloud is and why it’s strategically relevant for any organization today. Many organizations have taken a cloud-first approach to net-new applications but are struggling with a strategy for what to do with their existing IT. We have found that the chief reason for this is that there's a lot less clarity on how to make the transition. Simply put, many organizations are fumbling with how to approach this. In many cases it’s proven to be hard to make sense of the market and as a corollary how to approach it.

There are huge opportunities and some serious challenges that requires solid leadership and actions from IT executives. We will present and discuss our framework for how to develop a comprehensive cloud transition strategy. The framework is designed to help guide executives in their decision making.

We'll cover:

  • What is cloud computing and what kind of business outcomes does it drive
  • An overview of the cloud market and its imminent future
  • What organizations are doing to take advantage of it and where they struggle
  • Specific guidance on how to develop a cloud transition strategy
