Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring Erwin: "Digital Transformation and What It Means to the CIO"

Transformation dominates the business agenda of modern CIOs. This trend has grown in recent years, with the demand to build digital-first businesses continuing to intensify - CIOs expect digital revenues to grow from 16% to 37% during the next five years. Of course, digital transformation is both a massive opportunity and huge challenge. The organizations that do it right will reinvent themselves, redefine markets and change the way customers think. This session will bring together IT executives to discuss:

  • Data as the foundation for the new digital business model
  • Attributes of a data-driven enterprise (DDE)
  • Achieving the goals of a DDE (hint: they are C-suite goals)
  • Transformation beyond technology
  • The importance of collaboration

Keynote Presentation featuring Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment: "Fostering Innovation and Growth for Transformative Technologies"

IT executives are excited by the opportunity to become a transformative IT executive, but simultaneously concerned about cutting through organizational policies, processes and politics, as well as the sheer volume and pace of change. But if they don’t free up time to focus on empowering the digital enterprise, they will fall under the digital bus. This interactive session will discuss strategies to create an ambidextrous culture to support innovation, recognizing ways to build personal power and influence in your organization, observing and understanding the needs of users and customers through design thinking principles, how current technology changes in cloud computing, mobile devices, social media, and other areas are driving global growth, and best practices for leveraging technology changes for competitive advantage.

3:50pm - 4:25pm
Keynote Presentation featuring GoPro: "Data Security with Steph Curry: Nothing but Net!"

The stats on data security aren’t good.  In fact they’re horrible.  The FBI says every Fortune 1000 has been breached, but most don’t know it…. How can you increase you odds of protecting your sensitive data from a security breach?  A few guiding principles will move you in the right direction, towards “nothing but net.”  

Todd Barnum is responsible for developing and executing the cybersecurity programs for GoPro globally. He leads multiple Cybersecurity functions focused on securing the use of Cloud Applications, Cloud Operations, Cloud Security Governance, and Cyber Security Resiliency. GoPro is believed to be one of the largest “cloud only” companies in the world.
