Agenda


Virtual Summit Keynote Session

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 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 


Virtual Summit Boardroom Sessions

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

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
