Collaborate. Innovate. Optimize.

As companies across industries embrace and implement new technologies into their organizations fundamental changes must occur. The promise of technology presents opportunities and pitfalls. For established companies, it’s about how to stay nimble while identifying and adapting to the new technology that is being unearthed and created by these newer companies. The latter faces intense competition as they seek to improve efficiency and integrate users.

On October 25th, Bloomberg and Nasdaq convene key stakeholders for this special half-day event to network and examine the common goal for all security, information and technology leaders — generate enhanced protections for client privacy, reshape industries, and figure it all out as fast as possible.

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.

Building the Plane While Flying It

Despite the popular myths that robots will take over the world, quite the opposite is true. In order for this man and machine partnership to realize its full potential new and existing employees must be agile and willing to gain the necessary technical skills. How can employers help employees identify their individual skills gap? What is the best approach to training existing staff? 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.

Emerging Tech: Reshaping Finance

What are the biggest challenges in emerging technologies? How can companies benefit from technologies like blockchain and machine intelligence, while protecting their positions and clients? How can it be harnessed as a competitive advantage? We will discuss the following aspects of emerging technologies, their benefits and viability, with Nasdaq's CIO.



3:30 pm

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.
