PANEL DISCUSSION: End of the "All Talk, No Action" - Women IT Leadership Roles Initiatives

It’s certainly not a new story, nor a female only story.  The fact there’s still far too few women in senior leadership IT roles and sitting on boards is a universal problem that must be addressed head on.  However, at the same time, “talk” is not enough.  So to ensure positive change, organizations must develop and implement initiatives that challenge existing hurdles and biases and offer equal opportunities for women in tech.

In this session, topics of discussion will include, yet will not be limited to:

  • How to implement best practices for empowering, attracting, and supporting women in technology
  • How to become a role model to ignite and ensure continued career opportunities and advancement for women in technology
  • Adopting bolder diversity goals and providing a healthy representation of women in senior leadership IT roles – what does that look like and how to get there?

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: Business Transformation with Customer Data Platforms - featuring Adobe

Digital is changing everything about how a business operates. Marketing isn’t just about brand awareness anymore — it’s about something higher, a brand purpose that creates a deep connection between a company and its customers. This introduces a massive shift in the way businesses need to interact with their customers. It involves understanding the customers deeply including behavioral and anonymous data across their entire journey to deliver 1-1 personalized experiences across channels. In recent years, Customer Data Platforms (CDPs) have emerged as a purpose-built solution for the marketer that provides a unified, persistent, single storage for all customer data including first, second, and third-party data linked together by identity stitching algorithms. Further CDPs connect with other applications to activate audiences across the broader ecosystem.

PANEL DISCUSSION: CIO's & CISO's Perspective of How to Shape Digital Innovation & Data/Privacy with Effective Team Collaboration

To ensure optimized digital transformation and protected data/privacy at an organization, CIOs and CISOs need to be highly aligned around every corporate technology initiative.  Additionally, when they, their direct reports and other departments, such as legal/compliance, work together effectively, advancing and improving the organization’s technology capabilities and data/privacy security become feasible realities versus pipedreams.

In this session, attendees will gain greater insights into:

  • Why CIOs and CISOs need to be advocates for the entire C-Suite to be tech and business savvy
  • How to develop an effective technology team that can implement effective business-wide data strategies with a team effort mentality
  • Aside from your technology teams, who do you need to partner with internally and externally to be an effective technology leader?

Most businesses say they’re not moving fast enough on plans to transform, and/or are coming across barriers that are getting in their way of their digital transformation journey.  Jeanne W. Ross, Principal Research Scientist at MIT-CISR, recently found that only 28% of legacy businesses have successfully digitized their business.  Furthermore, building future-ready organizations that value prop into digital products have been challenging as well.  However, by attending this session, you will learn how to address the above challenges - as well as learn more about actionable steps enterprises can take to make digital business capabilities part of its business’ right to win.

PANEL DISCUSSION: Disruptions Happen, but Your Customers Won't Know

Digital business design—people, process, and technology— defines value propositions and deliver offerings made possible from the capabilities of digital technologies. It distinguishes what is stable (core competencies, enterprise processes, and master data structures) from what is changing regularly (digital offerings, team goals, apps, and skills). The aim should be to make a company agile so that it can innovate and constantly evolve a portfolio of digital offerings in response to rapidly changing technologies, customer demands, and today’s always-on organizations.

In this session, attendees will gain greater insights into:

  • Being agile, collaborative, and compliant
  • Simplifying a virtualized IT environment
  • Steps enterprise architects can take to build a future-ready business
  • Great building blocks for integrating business applications across larger ecosystems
  • Piecing together culture, insights, and competencies to convert a successful pre-digital company into being an agile, innovative digital player

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: Digital Transformation vs Digital Evolution - featuring ServiceNow

We should stop focusing on digital transformation and start talking about digital evolution. We are in the experience economy where technology and strategy are continually informing and improving each other. Rate of change and the ability to consistently improve both employee and customer’s experiences have become competitive advantages in the marketplace. In past, businesses could hang back, watch where technology was going and then catch up. Not anymore, the rate of change is so rapid, your business and technology strategies can’t be built to last- it has to be built to evolve.

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: Managing Third-Parties for Risk - featuring Coupa

High-profile InfoSec breaches and sizable GDPR fines from European regulators have placed a spotlight on the risk that third-parties and their subcontractors bring to the companies that they serve. In the past risks from third-parties were manageable, but the stakes have escalated as companies digitize just about everything. Consequently, boards and regulators are demanding greater rigor in third party risk management. Creating a third-party risk management program isn’t always obvious or easy and it doesn't happen overnight. It's a journey that involves continual learning, refinement, and evolution.

Companies with effective programs are exposed to fewer risks and when the inevitable risk event hits, they bounce back more quickly than others. Additionally, they enjoy lower costs, better performance, and stronger compliance. Since every company is at a different place in their journey, it's important to know how to mature your program and how to manage the brand of the program. This discussion will cover:

  • The construct of a third-party risk-management program – how it works
  • Key attributes of highly successful programs
  • Objectively measuring outcomes
  • Preparing for what is coming next

In this session, attendees will gain greater insights into:

  • Why CIOs and CISOs need to be advocates for the entire C-Suite to be tech and business savvy

  • Staying ahead of the game in your industry
