Agenda


Virtual Summit Keynote Session

Strategic Drivers to Digital Business Acceleration

A CIO’s 2021 marching orders come straight from the top: In a Gartner survey, 7 out of 10 boards demanded digital acceleration in a disrupted global climate, while operational excellence through digital business topped the forward-driving agenda. How does your digital strategy measure up to the mission? Join your peers in an interactive session built around modern digital design. 


Among the key talking points:

  • What it means to be ‘digital-first’ – breaking down roadblocks and navigating roadmaps

  • What levers to pull to expand digital business and increase digital maturity

  • How CIOs create credibility to drive the enterprise in a digital direction 


Virtual Summit Boardroom Sessions

CIOs Connecting Business, Data, and Technology


According to Gartner, the challenge for many IT and business leaders today is to instill a culture of data-driven decision making across the organization. Those who want to exploit the potential of new data and advanced analytics capabilities at scale typically face numerous challenges. As a CIO, it's critical to develop a strong, clear strategy connecting business, technology, and data and analytics to maintain your competitive advantage and mitigate these challenges.

 

In this session, CIOs will

  • Discuss best practices for designing data and analytics programs

  • Identify and define quick-win opportunities supporting the business data strategy

  • Brainstorm technology and resource alignment 


Accelerating Security at the Pace of the Business

In 2020, the multi-decade process of turning the digital enterprise inside out accelerated instantly. We’ve now passed an inflection point – most cyber assets live outside the old “walls” of the organization and cybersecurity controls must be scalable, flexible and reliable. How are CIOs partnering with CISOs to establish a security strategy that is an enabler of the digital business rather than an obstacle?


In this interactive session, you’ll discuss:

  • Redesigning cybersecurity architecture to enable the work-from-anywhere culture

  • Foundational technologies to support a global cybersecurity mesh 

  • Reconceptualizing traditional ideas of how to approach security within the enterprise and shifting the business mindset
