Wed, 03 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3368817 Gartner Webinars The CDO's First 100 Days New chief data offers (CDOs) must act quickly and decisively when they take up their posts or risk failure. Because the CDO role is new in many organizations, there is often no pre-existing program everything must be done "from scratch."

However, modern requirements such as HTML5, SaaS, BYOD, mobile and digital business mean that organizations must provide these capabilities as well as support for their legacy former standard. With Microsoft revamping its browser strategy and dropping support for legacy, and the rise of Google Chrome and multiple browser strategies, a bimodal approach makes sense for most organizations. Thu, 11 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3368818 Gartner Webinars Portfolio Reprioritization Through Governance EDT: 1:00 p.m. | PDT: 10:00 a.m. | GMT: 17:00 Great communication inspires action and commitment and drives better business outcomes.

One of the major reasons for these changes is significant service alternatives that became available from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, resulting in service differentiation becoming a more challenging task. Tue, 16 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3368828 Gartner Webinars Identity Proofing for Secure Payments EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Data privacy is dead. Web application security continues to fail, resulting in the numerous data breaches seen over the past three to four years, many of which have made headlines. There are 1.9 billion stolen identities out on the dark Web. It's time to rethink how we prove identity. Wed, 17 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3377421 Gartner Webinars BI and Analytics in the Cloud: A Practical Roadmap for a Challenging Journey EDT: 9:00 a.m. | PDT: 6:00 a.m. | GMT: 13:00 Cloud BI and analytics promise to innovate and simplify the exploration of information - but they also have the potential to be challenging and risky. You need to understand the pitfalls, how to prepare yourself and how to get started with the transition. Thu, 18 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3368825 Gartner Webinars Developing a Strategic Organization Design for a Complex Global Supply Chain EDT: 10:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. | GMT: 14:00 & 17:00 Supply chains are becoming increasingly complex, and leaders need to balance the needs of local businesses with pressures for global integration. They must organize their supply chains to deliver across multiple customers/channels, geographies, products and functions. Architecting an organizational design across all of these dimensions at the same time can be a daunting task. Thu, 18 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3377420 Gartner Webinars Helping Midmarket IT Leaders Change the Conversation From Cost to Value EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Many midmarket IT leaders report that they are often required to reduce IT spending. With CFOs measuring IT against a single metric - "IT spending as a % of revenue," - there is a heavy focus on reducing IT's costs with little focus on increasing its contribution to the business. This has led to many midmarket IT leaders being unable to move the conversation from cost to value. The result is usually the business failing to innovate from within and utilising IT to optimise business performance. In this webinar we introduce the Gartner Cost Value Matrix as a new way to measure IT's contribution to the business. The Cost Value Matrix focuses on how IT has contributed to improving business metrics, rather than its record on cost cutting, a much improved and fairer way of assessing a CIO's performance. Thu, 18 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3288931 Gartner Webinars A Practical Approach to Strategic Thinking for CIOs EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 What should a CIO do when there is no corporate strategic plan, or when a plan exists but doesn't provide clear guidance? What should a CIO do when strategies exist, but aren't accomplished amid the flood of urgent priorities and changing issues of the day? The answer for many may be "strategic thinking." Strategic thinking provides mental models, frameworks and tools that can help CIOs when the enterprise's direction is unclear. It can also help them better focus, execute and adapt in times of great change and uncertainty. Mon, 22 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3358317 Gartner Webinars Surviving a Software Audit EDT: 9:00 a.m. | PDT: 6:00 a.m. | GMT: 13:00 Gartner clients continue to report increasingly frequent software license audits, resulting in undefended, unbudgeted and unmanaged costs.

More than 21 billion connected "things" by 2020.

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3377419 Gartner Webinars Digital Business Matures: Leading Into the Learning Curve EDT: 9:00 a.m. | PDT: 6:00 a.m. | GMT: 13:00 Most of us know that digital business is a "good thing." We've done a great job at getting our colleagues hyped up about it but be careful what you ask for. Once you create the hype, you have to focus on what you are going to design and determine that "just right" level of delivery to demonstrate a move from digital desire to digital reality. Tue, 30 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3358319 Gartner Webinars Insights to Create Customer Value for Wearables in the Enterprise EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Your organization is responsible for growing revenue by offering wearable solutions that businesses use with workers and customers.

In this webinar, we provide actionable insights for executives in product management, marketing and strategy based on examples from wearable solution providers and their customers. Tue, 30 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3377417 Gartner Webinars How to Live Without Mobile Device Management EDT: 8:00 a.m. | PDT: 5:00 a.m | GMT: 12:00 This webinar addresses the growing trend of users refusing to have enterprise management of their mobile devices due to privacy concerns.

Growing data complexity, with such things as IOT, algorithmic business and increased regulation, will force a more business-led, business relevant, and ethical information governance discipline. It's all about increased business value. Thu, 01 Sep 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3305320 Gartner Webinars Bimodal IT Is the Best Way to Deliver Application Rationalization EDT: 8:00 a.m. | PDT: 5:00 a.m. | GMT: 12:00 Application rationalization remains a key initiative for many of CIOs. However, the way in which they need to address rationalization has changed quite dramatically. Solution models that might have worked four to five years ago are really no longer the answer. Instead, the best (the only?) way forward is to adopt bimodal IT. Bimodal will enable businesses to transition from bloated application portfolios toward a lower-cost and more agile state without the high risks associated with "big bang" replacement of major parts of their portfolios. Wed, 07 Sep 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3391417 Gartner Webinars Your Future Office: Traditional or Cloud? Microsoft? Google? EDT: 10:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. | GMT: 14:00 & 17:00 Cloud-based office products are benefiting from a huge amount of hype.

EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 One of the most pressing decisions facing midmarket IT leaders is whether they need to build a data warehouse. Midsize organizations have heard the horror stories about how hard and costly it can be to build a data warehouse. And then there is no guarantee it will be successfully adopted by users. Most midsize organizations struggle to find the resources and skills needed to successfully complete their BI and analytic projects, yet, midmarket IT leaders know that it is tough to run a business without a sound data foundation. This webinar examines how midsize organizations are tackling this decision. Mon, 19 Sep 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3306423 Gartner Webinars Augmented Reality: Enabling Digital Business With an Immersive Interface EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Augmented reality (AR) is a digital filter and user interface for the physical world.

We also discuss how businesses should approach this disruptive tool.

Employees need to be more than just 'aware' they need them to possess certain value frameworks, critical thinking skills and behaviors that are in-line with the organizations security policies. In this webinar we outline the idea of proactive "security Culture management" an approach that contains aspects of security awareness, behavioral training/conditioning, marketing/messaging, systems of reinforcement, technology based guardrails, and more.
