FUTURE OF WORK: IT LEADERSHIP IN THE NEXT DECADE

As digitisation and the pace of change transform everything we know about business, it’s imperative that CIO’s respond to market trends and build the next-generation workforce. It’s no small task, but the key to it talent is understanding skill shifts and knowing when to retain, retrain, recruit or even outsource.

This panel discussion will look at the skills it organizations must possess to respond to the business and the shifts that can propel it from a technology culture to a business culture that executes technology.

Evolving your core to innovate at the edge

Integration is now a boardroom conversation. Four out of five businesses say failure to complete digital transformation initiatives will negatively impact revenue in the next 12 months. The winners crossing the finish line will be those who unlock data to make smarter, faster decisions.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING OUR WORLD AND HOW WE AS A SOCIETY INTERACT WITH IT

AI has extended the human capability to offer solutions to challenges, both simple and complex. The change is such, that we are even asking what there is left for humans. Every industry is rapidly being re-shaped. But are we now focusing too much on what we are missing and less on what we can gain and should develop? What impact is AI really having on business and what are the competitive advantages that this emerging technology can bring? Are there repercussions in being left behind?

  • Having been a salesperson for over 20 years I have been to many networking events over the years and I have to say, this has got to be one of the best! It was well managed from the outset but the calibre of attendees was far superior and the timings of all meetings were kept. I would definitely recommend this event to anyone who is serious about networking and lead generation. Looking forward to the next one!
