Delivering Value Now

Gone are the days of the Chief Information Officer just making sure networks are up and running. Today’s senior IT leaders must be the drivers of innovation and be consistently showing how their strategies can add value at their respective organizations. As more and more technology becomes integrated into today’s society, now more than ever these executives have the ability to not just to protect data, enhance efficiencies, but to actually create new value. In order to understand how one can better achieve this we’ll gather leaders across the C-suite to discuss what kinds of strategies they are deploying to gain a seat at the table, how they are looking to prove their concepts more quickly and cost-effectively, and which tactics they are deploying to collaborate and show value in their solutions.

Reaping the Fruits of Cloud Modernization

Research shows cloud computing will continue to be the primary disruptor in enterprise technology, with the hybrid-cloud model emerging as the next big growth driver. This strategy provides an alternative for companies that are looking to capitalize on the agility of clouds while maintaining a portion of their data and applications in-house. With any infrastructure transformation, big or small, executives need to be thinking about what makes sense for their business. We’ll gather leaders across the cloud space who can speak to what modernizing your infrastructure entails. We’ll look to draw conclusions as to which strategies fit your business, when partnerships and collaboration make sense, what security pitfalls many are facing, and how to manage costs while moving at a rapid pace.

The Next Evolution of Security

For today’s security executives, it’s all about the latest and greatest to protect your networks against the ever-shifting threat landscape that U.S. enterprises face. We’ve seen more companies using AI and machine learning to spot hackers, as well as advancements in authentication like facial recognition to move away from passwords. As companies embrace smarter, autonomous security systems what are the upsides, and where do the risks lie? How should companies strike the right balance of using people and technology together, in order to build the optimal, sophisticated, and secure network? And can we look out on the horizon to identify the next evolution of security advancements?
