In today’s digitally focused landscape, leading IT executives must ensure that their initiatives are not only disruptive enough to impact their business, but also their industry. An innovative CIO knows that success as a digital-first company is led by technology and coupled with a customer-centric culture.
Driving change to achieve organizational growth is now powered by having a better understanding of your customer’s needs and reinforcing them with the strategic implementation of technology.

Many organizations are pursuing data-driven strategies as they pursue digital transformation. They have adopted technologies, both open source and purchased, to not only manage their data, but also discover insights through analytics and artificial intelligence. Yet, despite these investments they still struggle to make it to analytics’ last mile – the critical point where analytics deployment drives decision-making at scale to create business value. Data shows that more than 50% of models developed with the intention of operationalizing them are never actually deployed and 90 percent take three months or more to deploy. So, we must ask ourselves, what is the opportunity cost when half of an organization’s most promising models become shelf-ware? There has to be a better way. And, there is.
By applying a ModelOps approach and applying technology to optimize much of the automation, organizations can drive efficient model development, deployment, governance, monitoring and retraining at scale. In this session you will learn how to put analytics into action while providing model governance and scalability that drive real results.

The forces of IoT, 5G, and AI are driving massive shifts in the way organizations operate. There’s no industry that won’t be impacted by these technologies. And at the heart of this transformation is data. Data generated by IoT devices, transmitted by 5G, and analyzed by AI. But businesses looking to lead in this new era are finding themselves challenged. Traditional data and analytics infrastructure is reaching its limits, slowing adoption of revolutionary new technology and development of new products and services. Static dashboards and passive processes that give business leaders an outdated view of the business are no longer sustainable. Organizations need to make the move to active analytics, a new paradigm in which data is constantly analyzed, decisions are made dynamically, and machine intelligence is combined with human intuition for new insight. We’ll explore the key components of an active analytics architecture and discuss live applications in the real world.
As a CIO, CDO or CTO you will know that supply chains deliver your company’s goods, products, services and promises. In this day and age of digitalization, the hard lines between industry specific supply chains like Hi-Tech, Consumer Electronics, Semiconductors, Consumer Packaged Goods, Retail etc. are blurring and the boundaries are disappearing –“Industry Morphing”. Industries are gravitating towards each other as they require lot of intelligence, experience and learning from adjacent industries to create successful ecosystems. API-led architectures and AI-powered Supply Chain Management (SCM) Platforms will allow for seamless integration with the digital ecosystems to ingest real-time data and leverage Big Data, AI and ML to deliver significant competitive advantage.

Organizations want to adopt modern practices like agile, DevSecOps and continuous delivery but those efforts frequently fail outright or fail to scale. Modern development and operations practices require a culture change to achieve results. Both managers and team members need different skills to be successful in the modern IT organization.
