EST: 10:00 a.m. | PST: 7:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Digital business is driving change across and within organizations, impacting its culture and its people. Culture change can only happen when a critical mass of employees take ownership of the transformation process. IT leaders can use storytelling as a powerful tool for engaging employees in the process to drive culture change. This session explains the value of storytelling. We will also share the 5 critical components of storytelling and guide you on how to build your own story to drive culture change at your organization.
EST: 10:00 a.m. | PST: 7:00 a.m. | GMT: 14:00 The future is filled with technology-based innovation and disruption. Yet, the pending disruptions are taking on new forms and increasing in speed. Most organizations are struggling to keep pace with the latest technological advances. Before one innovation is implemented, two others arrive. To cope and compete, CIOs in end-user organizations must learn to develop an appropriate pace for digital change. Join us to learn the Gartner 2018 strategic predictions for blockchain, internet of things (IoT), security, the IT talent crunch and more and how your organization can keep up.
EDT: 10:00 a.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. | GMT: 14:00 As an industry, we are focused on providing the necessary identity management services for Internet of Things (IoT). But are we missing out on an opportunity? Can IoT help us do a better job with identity management? In this webinar, we will integrate devices such as smartphones, IoT platforms, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and identity management as a service (IDaaS) to illustrate how IoT can improve access control, authentication and provisioning for both physical and traditional IT resources. When we are done, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of using IoT to support identity and articulate best practices associated with combining IoT and identity.
EDT: 9:00 a.m. | PDT: 6:00 a.m. | GMT: 14:00 Our business models are under attack by digital transformation. The CIO holds a unique view on how to withstand the attack and guide the organization to victory. So how do we get there, and who does the CIO need as allies? Join us as we discuss the impact of digital business on leadership, talent, organizations and their culture and how to successfully guide and engage your employees amidst change.
EDT: 10:00 a.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 By making significant contributions to the strategic planning of digital business transformation initiatives, CIOs will shift from an environment of managing systems that support business operations to realizing systems that define the organization. CIOs will need to expand their mental models to succeed at this planning and transformation. For decades, systems thinking has been the defining paradigm that has driven engineering-centric IT departments in solution design. Moving forward, new paradigms like Theory of Constraints will need to be understood and woven into IT operations in order to deliver a successful solution for a hyper-complex digital economy.
EDT: 12:00 p.m. | PDT: 9:00 a.m. | GMT: 17:00 Digital business has made information and technology (I&T) much more critical and strategic than ever for any enterprise, large or small. But most organizations are not very good at strategizing. Efforts will range from highly structured, cross-functional strategic planning to informal peer conversations to just intuition or gut feel. CIOs must take on a bigger role in creating and shaping enterprise strategy, both from a business and I&T as well as a digital opportunities and risks perspective.
Strategic technology trends have significant disruptive potential over the next 5 years. You must examine your business impacts and appropriately adjust business models and operations or else your company is at risk of losing competitive advantage to those who do. IT cannot afford to ignore these 2018 top tech trends.
As information and technology move to the heart of every enterprise, IT strategy can no longer be created as a reaction to the business strategy. Rather, information and technology have become critical components of business strategy, both shaping and enabling the strategic direction of the enterprise. This webinar explores how to position information and technology at the heart of the business strategy so the enterprise is prepared to compete in this digital era.
Concerns about AI vary considerably. Many organizations are trying to understand the use cases for artificial intelligence and how to apply AI to their business needs. Other companies are concerned about the lack of a documented explanation for the output of models created using deep neural networks. The speed at which AI is evolving will continue to present challenges and concerns to enterprises, but the offsetting benefits will compel them to deploy solutions that incorporate AI.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is generating the most rapid technology evolution and disruption the industry has seen in many years. IoT is fostering advances in artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, security, communications and endpoints which enable new and game-changing opportunities. At the same time, these advances introduce complexity and integration challenges never before seen. CIOs must understand when, where and how they can capitalize on the IoT and the key technology advances it brings, while preparing for the inevitable challenges.
