The "Celebrity" CIO: Driving Business Growth through Service Delivery Innovation

Customer Experience sets the stage for establishing trust and relevance with an increasingly demanding client. Technology is firmly embedded as the accelerator to a new business model, and new technology buyers are starting to emerge: Chief Risk and Security officers are vying for control, while some Chief Marketing officers are asserting themselves in the online and mobile space. The "Celebrity CIO" must muscle through the science of operational efficiency, technology agility, infrastructure scalability and new security concerns around customer device flexibility. At the same time, Celebrity CIO's need to be focused on the art of ensuring technology innovation such as cloud, clearly drives new avenues of business opportunity. Listen to how the "Celebrity CIO" has become the lever around which business differentiation is hinged.

IT as a Service Broker

The business is demanding faster response times and greater flexibility when dealing with internal IT. With this demand comes the need for IT to change from a reactive organization to an innovative one, and from being responsive to business demands to truly adding differentiation to the business. New alternatives for obtaining IT services are pushing the adoption of the IT as a service model.

Additionally, the need for IT to support the proliferation of new devices, meet the demands of a highly mobile workforce, manage rapidly expanding data volumes, and ensure the value and security of multiple data sources outside the enterprise is transforming the physical IT environment and changing the way IT roles are performed.

Mitigating Security Risks at the Networks Edge

Distributed enterprises with hundreds or thousands of locations face the ongoing challenge of maintaining network security. With many locations that typically process sensitive data, distributed enterprises are at a particularly high risk of suffering security breaches. In particular, criminals view the networks edge as a soft target that typically employs weaker security practices.

This roundtable will look at the strategies and best practices network administrators and IT managers are using to protect networks against vulnerabilities, threats and malicious attacks. 

Attendees will learn about:

  • Specific threats to the distributed enterprise
  • Strategies for safer networks
  • Network configurations must-dos
  • Cloud-Based security
  • PCI Compliance
  • Parallel Networking

Think Tank

Transforming your IT Operation to an IT-as-a-Service Model

Phil Gormley, Senior Director of Strategic Services with Apptio, will moderate a session discussing how to navigate transforming your IT operation to an IT-as-a-Service model.

As the former Chief of Staff to the SVP of Global Infrastructure and the Cloud, Phil led EMCs journey into IT-as a-Service and Change Management initiatives and will offer first-hand experience from his lessons learned.  

Join us to discuss best practices and considerations for embarking on this transformation initiative.

What Every CIO Should Ask About User-Driven Business Intelligence

Analytics and BI continue to be a top priority for CIOs and CFOs alike. However, multiple studies show that BI continues to be deployed to only a fraction of the business users who could benefit from it.  Innovative (a.k.a. rogue) users will download and deploy solutions themselves without the involvement of IT. But this creates risk for the firm as IT loses control over data security and integrity. There is an alternative. IT leaders can proactively deploy self-service BI allowing them to protect the firm all while becoming the hero to their information starved business users.

In this session, we will look beyond basic features and functionality and discuss what really matters when evaluating these technologies.

The Future of IT: Managing Service Relationships in the Enterprise

Service relationships exist throughout the enterprise. They connect requesters of a service and providers of those services. While service relationships are well defined and automated within enterprise IT, they are inefficient, unstructured, or non-existent in other enterprise service domains. 

This session will describe the vision for the future of IT and the role IT leaders will play in the evolution of service as well as a perspective on applying the IT service model to automate and manage service relationships inside and outside the enterprise.

Unleash the Power of Disruptive Technologies in the Enterprise

How do we bring more value to our clients by being more effective? Most enterprise business users have one or several mobile devices that have become more powerful and redefines how work is being done, by leveraging big data and analytics and cloud services. Yet for the CIOs, this creates challenges in keeping applications and data consistent across the enterprise, while addressing scalability, security and compliance requirements. Financial organizations are now able to leverage more of the data being captured. The fundamental change that were seeing is that now organizations are looking to analyze all information available to generate more relevant insights. Come to discuss.

Thematic Transformation in the Purpose Driven Enterprise

Transformation is often ill-defined in the enterprise, a nebulous placeholder for change that may result in temporary gains without an overall sustainable advantage. SunTrust Banks CIO Anil Cheriyan recognized there was a distinct gap between where his organization was and where they needed to be, and he also saw they required a true transformational plan to get there. Driven by three critical themes for change " accelerate, innovate, renovate " Cheriyan engineered a genuine technological and operational overhaul that has propelled SunTrust. In this keynote, Cheriyan will share the sense of purpose that fueled this transformation and the five critical capabilities that continue to enable success.

Cloud First: Mandate or Strategy?

Many organizations have adopted, or are considering, a cloud first approach.  Beware, however, the risks of creating a new vendor ecosystem that lacks cohesion and overly relies on the commodity cloud. A huge opportunity exists for those who view cloud as an IT strategy verses a short-term mandate that fails to meet long-term goals.  

This session will delve into the implications and opportunities of taking a cloud first approach. We will discuss considerations for building your cloud strategy, the fundamental shift in the role of IT, understanding your risk model and best practices when negotiating with and managing cloud vendors.

The New Way To Work

At this very moment, large forces are pushing businesses to consider new models of communication, new models of collaboration that are going to fundamentally impact the future of work. In fact, the negative impacts are already starting to pile up, which is why addressing the so-called New Way to Work is quickly becoming a key C-level priority in 2014.

In this hyper-connected world, where mobility and collaboration are the norm, todays anywhere workers demand a consumer-like experience from the enterprise communications solutions they use every day. Yet many organizations find themselves mired in a maddening reality of fragmented or incomplete offerings, frustrated users and missed opportunities.  We are now virtual, mobile, distributed, social, and we bring our own devices to work. At the same time, the proliferation of disparate communications has created a complex, fragmented and overwhelming mess - in many cases hindering collaboration and productivity, rather than enabling it.   This creates both challenges and opportunities for today's enterprise.

We need collaborative solutions that fully embrace the new landscape of team work lifestyles.  And a user experience that is designed around the user, not the technology.  All while creating a connected and harmonized network that truly unifies communications.

At Unify, we welcome the #NW2W and look forward to partnering with you to meet these challenges and the opportunities that come with them.

Access Rights - A Cardinal Point in Compliance and Risk Management

Audits frequently expose gaps in an organization's access rights management. Driven by compliance, the features and capabilities of Identity and Access Management solutions have been enhanced over time. No longer is it enough to manage accesses to key information, it is imperative to be able to analyze the data and provide real-time reporting on changes and risks.

Additionally, the involvement of business stakeholders in approval and recertification workflows has become mandatory. This round-table briefly reviews past developments and discusses current and future trends in the entire access rights spectrum.

Managing Cyber and Fraud Risks to Meet Business Goals and Avoid Bottlenecks

Being ready to act when a new regulation arises or when users bring consumer devices into your network is tough enough; adding the requirement that the business is secure and compliant presents an exponential challenge. Today, cyber and fraud related attacks are on the rise. Although they cannot be stopped in their entirety, you can put in place effective capabilities and processes to deter would-be attackers.

During this round table we will discuss how preparing for the risk can allow you to successfully balance that risk with the agility you need to meet business goals and avoid bottlenecks.

Making Customer Communication Management Vital to Your Customer Experience Strategy

A positive customer experience is a top communication goal for insurance organizations, reflecting the modern communications customers expect due to accelerating mobile and online adoption. It is ranked as a key metric for measuring successful transformation projects and viewed as a prime determinant of loyalty and future revenue - particularly as many products move to commoditization. Insurance organizations primarily communicate with their customers using legacy approaches and have concerns about how to handle the power mobile devices, video and social media have given customers - allowing them to interact with CSRs, share information electronically and quickly complete business transactions.

Learn why customer communication management is vital to your customer experience strategy and how your organization can avoid falling behind in delivering the type of communications customers now expect.

Conducting Information Security Risk Assessment on 3rd-Party Vendors, Including Cloud Providers

Today businesses cannot survive without their strategic 3rd-party vendors. However, that comes with risks that need appropriate due diligence, and prior to contract signing. Also regulators continue to raise the bar on 3rd-party due diligence in the financial sector, and unfortunately breaches continue to occur with 3rd-parties; hence the importance of 3rd-party security reviews.
