Digital Transformation: A Journey Not a Destination

There are many forces that are driving companies to continue to transform how they do business. Technological advances such as IoT, AI, machine learning, virtual reality and augmented reality are creating demanding expectations from customers, employees and boards. Adding to the complexity of CIOs and CISOs is the increasing threats to the security of the data that is at the heart of digital transformation. This keynote presentation will focus on the realities that this transformation will never end and it is critical to implement both the mindset and processes to treat digital transformation as a journey...not a destination. 

Takeaways: 

  1. It is critical to realize that digital transformation will never end, but will always be unfolding. 
  2. CIOs and CISOs must implement processes to ensure that not only their departments are forward thinking, but that their entire company is aware of what new technologies can bring to bear for customers and employees.

Making Your Way Through the Haze of Cloud Computing

What have we learned from a decade of cloud computing? What are the best practices that we should be taking into account as we take the next step on the digital transformation journey? We will discuss the full range of data center to cloud to hybrid cloud to fog and everything in between.

Takeaways:

  1. Cloud computing has effectively been with us for a decade. There are clear learnings in the last ten years that we should leverage as we implement new solutions.
  2. One size does not fit all. Effective solutions can range from a state of the art data center to a hybrid cloud to a fully implemented cloud solution.

Executive Boardroom

We live in a world defined by less: less Time, less Budget, less of everything; but at the same time, we get more of what surrounds us: more data, more threats, more challenges. 

In this time, we can't use yesterday's technologies to solve tomorrows problems; therefore, we need a very different kind of infrastructure. An infrastructure that uses context to turn the Data generated by the Users into Intelligence, solves issues before they become issues and learns proactively from each component. 

An infrastructure that sees millions of threats a day and stops them in seconds even when they're hidden in encrypted traffic.  

An infrastructure that turns Business Intent into Business Results and will add value from a strategic perspective where the deployment is automated and scalable where the data can be used for analytical operations to improve business outcomes. 

An infrastructure that makes more possible and supports multi-cloud strategies and partners where orchestration and programmability are the fundamentals.

Thought Leadership

Remove Business Friction with Risk-Adaptive Cybersecurity

Trust is not absolute. The binary choice of blocking all perceived threats or trusting everyone doesn't work in an anonymous digital world. Another way is to provide automated response to risky behaviour and compromised credentials while freeing legitimate users to do their jobs. 

Learn how risk-adaptive security dynamically protects critical data through situational context and real-time enforcement to restore your Board's trust in cybersecurity.

Think Tank

Big Data, Little Data. Secure Data, Lost Data.

If digital transformation is a journey, then data is the fuel that will transport your company from here to there. What data do you have access to? How can you make sense out of the data and thus make decisions from it? How does a company use data to be a disruptor and not a victim? And how do you secure that data to ensure that the digital transformation journey does not end prematurely? 

Takeaways:  

  1. Digital transformation without constant access to usable and reliable data will be a slow and arduous journey. 
  2. Digital transformation exposes increasing amounts of data potentially vulnerable to cyber attacks and must be addressed.

Think Tank

Building a Collaborative and Social IT Security Program

In todays environment there can be no arguing that a comprehensive IT Security program is a de facto requirement for every organization. Such a program needs to address the full range of security threats that can be leveraged against an organization, needs to be integrated into whatever regulatory and governance requirements exist, but beyond that it needs to be accessible, consumable, and actionable by everyone that is influenced by it, or interacts with it. Building a program that is shared through social channels and relies on the collaborative input of employees and constituents for not only creation but enforcement will drive higher levels of adoption, responsiveness and, ultimately, protection. 

Takeaways:  

  • A security program, that is the stated intentions of the organization combined with the policies and tools to back those intentions up is essential 
  • The program needs to be easily communicated, easily consumed, and easily complied with 
  • Using an open social and collaborative approach to creation, distribution, and enforcement ensure greater adoption and ultimately greater security

To thrive in today's competitive marketplace, enterprise organizations are adopting innovative technologies that promise a competitive advantage. But new technologies can disrupt established workflows and operational processes. The challenge is integrating the latest cloud SaaS applications with existing legacy systems - whether its on premise, in the cloud or both while trying to meet the dynamic business needs. 

In this session, you will learn about the journey with Dell Boomi to become a Connected Business and how IT organizations can connect everything and engage everywhere. Attend this presentation to hear how leading organizations are building the connected business to drive pervasive connectivity with people, processes, applications, data, devices and things in a low code, cloud-native unified platform.

We will discuss best practices for the various types of dashboards that can be used to make the most important decisions for your company. 

Takeaways:  

  1. Digital Transformation is providing an increasing amount of data to be understood and analyzed in order to make the right decisions.

Security and Compliance; Chicken and Egg or Chalk and Cheese?

Since regulatory (and industry) compliance became a notable thing in the early-mid 2000's it has been intimately linked with information security and often times has been the lever (or hammer) by which enterprises made necessary investments in security. But being compliant and being secure aren't the same thing, and in too many cases enterprises that were perfectly compliant have been perfectly breached. A new focus is needed; one that respects that while security and compliance are not the same thing, they are working towards the same goal (a reduction in overall enterprise risk exposure) and sees that compliance flows from security. 

Takeaways:  

  • While a secure company is likely a compliant company, the same cannot be said of the reverse situation
  • Just because compliance has loosened the purse strings doesn't mean it takes a pre-eminent position on security investments
  • Reducing enterprise risk is the goal of both practices but without appropriate focus on both is a goal that will never be achieved

Disrupt or Be Disrupted: The Digital Transformation Journey Has No Parking Lots

The seemingly ever expanding cadre of technological tools available to incumbent industry leaders are also available to myriad start-ups. Start-ups are using these new technologies to disrupt industries of all types, changing how customers think about tried and true industries. Disruption is found on every corner and it is critical for CIOs to lead their organizations in a way that make them as nimble as their competitors.

Takeaways:

  1. Technology enables companies, especially start-ups with no legacy infrastructure, to disrupt industries overnight.
  2. CIOs need to lead their companies in ways that disrupt before they are disrupted by others.

 

4:40 pm - 5:00 pm

What's the Next Stop On the Transformation Journey?

Our Governing Board will summarize the learnings from the day and discuss the path forward for building an ongoing community of CIOs where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

Takeaways:

  1. Building an ongoing community with your peers can be an invaluable resource for tackling the digital transformation projects ahead of you.
  2. Sharing stories of success (and failures) is not reserved to a one-day CIO Summit, but should be shared on a regular basis with your peers.
