Collaboration in the Enterprise
Technological advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning are occurring at a rapid pace. These advancements will not replace workers, but will serve as a critical competitive tool by aiding employees in their work by improving work flows. This frees up human labor from time consuming and repetitive tasks, while increasing accuracy. This free time can be allocated to strategic initiatives, business development and improving customer service, all of which will have a positive impact on the company’s bottom line. This discussion will focus on the collaborative environment tech leaders need to build today, to provide new infrastructure that aids the future of work in its move from man versus machine to man with machine.

How does an organization balance employees’ career aspirations with the demands to create the company of the future? What are the talent development and retention methods that need to be deployed in order to migrate employees toward embracing new technology and acquiring the necessary technical skills to work alongside it? This panel will focus on how enterprise companies can promote a learning culture, as well as get the most from their development teams.

Securing the Future
For years, companies have struggled with the issue of locking down their systems to keep vital information safe, while allowing employees to communicate in a way that allows them to do their jobs, without tapping unmonitored systems. The more companies crack down, and close systems, to ensure compliance; it seems the more employees will seek out alternative and simpler ways to do their jobs. So, what's to be done? This discussion focuses on the security industry's perspectives on how they, and their clients, are trying to manage and acquire tech talent, while opening up wide access. Panelists will also share any success stories that solve for this paradox.
