    2022 Tracks Announced

    Attendees will have access to 8 tracks, all designed to help infrastructure, operations and cloud leaders empower the anywhere business.

    Track A

    Disruptive Practices, Trends and Technologies

    Enterprises are more than ever challenged to rethink business models as they embrace disruptive practices, trends and technologies, forcing them into fundamental change. How they leverage and enable ecosystems is disrupted further by pressures to reduce environmental footprints and embrace sustainability initiatives. This track explores the balance between ensuring operational stability and embracing these disruptive influences.

    Track B

    Cloud Cookbook

    Organizations with a cloud strategy and roadmap are in a better position to achieve better outcomes from cloud computing than those without one. They have more coherent approaches to cloud usage, costs, and cloud migrations. They anticipate both the benefits and potential downsides of cloud use, attempting to exploit the benefits while minimizing the downsides. This track explores how to meet your organization’s stakeholder and business needs for cloud by creating and developing a strategy and roadmap of how to enable and exploit cloud and demonstrate value.

    Track C

    Platform Engineering

    Many organizations are under immense pressure to deliver agile application and integration architectures and agile user experiences to meet rapidly changing anywhere business needs. I&O leaders face a world that requires increasingly complex architecture, effective integration patterns, expanded platform capabilities, disciplined yet federated delivery practices and versatile skills. This track explores how to use a product focused mindset, infrastructure as code and aggressive automation to establish and develop platforms that enable the agility required to empower the anywhere business.

    Track D

    Operations: Centralized, Distributed, Cloud

    The anywhere business is increasingly distributed, fragmented and complex, creating a management and operational nightmare. Hybrid workload operations, centralized core systems and cloud management require new approaches. This track focuses on how operations teams maintain, administer and support centralized, distributed, and cloud operations practices and technologies.

    Track E

    Integrating Edge

    Edge computing initiatives are often deployed in an uncoordinated manner across the enterprise, resulting in operational and data silos. Designing edge systems is challenging due to their technical diversity and integration complexity. Exacerbating the problem is the proliferation of diverse and incompatible products. This track focuses on how organizations can integrate, deploy, and operate edge systems to enable the anywhere business.

    Track F

    Enabling Security

    I&O security is a critical component of an effective I&O infrastructure that supports operational resilience, security, and compliance. It is essential that efforts to mitigate risk will also maintain agility in delivering customer value while balancing cost. This track focuses on guiding I&O leaders in securing and defending their increasingly anywhere organizations from exposures and threats, while integrating security, recovery and compliance best practices into day to day operations.

    Track G

    Skills, Organization and Leadership

    The demands on leaders are constantly changing. The need to attract the best staff and retain your skilled workforce is vital in a hyper-competitive world. I&O operating models and structures must evolve as enterprises embrace disruptions like cloud adoption, DevOps and product-focused delivery in an effort to meet customers' increased expectations and demands. The changing relationship between I&O, peer IT domains, IT leadership and customers is heavily influenced by the changing relationship between employees and employers and the future of work. This track focuses on the changing face of I&O, the people and culture issues, the rapidly developing skill and competency requirements, and the evolving role of the leader.

    Track H

    Optimizing Costs and Value

    Optimizing costs while delivering value is a consistent challenge and fundamental part of managing I&O effectively. This becomes even more challenging during periods of increasing inflation and volatility. This track focuses on how to optimize operational costs at the edge, cloud, and on-premises while maximizing value for the anywhere business.

    Health and safety measures

    We are excited and are prepared to return to in-person conferences this year. Over the coming months, we will continue to monitor and adhere to government, venue and health agency guidelines and recommendations as we plan our in-person programs.

    As part of our commitment to creating the safest possible environment for our community given current infection rates around the globe, we will be requiring all attendees, exhibitors, staff and partners to be fully vaccinated to participate in this year’s in-person conferences, in addition to completing a health status attestation prior to arrival.

    In addition to the above attendance criteria, we will implement a set of operational planning measures to help create a clean and safe conference. Please note that precautions may evolve prior to each event; however, the following measures will be followed at a minimum:

    • Increased cleaning and sanitizing of the event space
    • Decreased capacity and minimized congestion where possible across the venue, including more space in aisleways
    • Touchless or reduced contact interactions throughout the conference
