MAKING CULTURE A PRIORITY

Infrastructure and Operations must inspire and create new cultural norms for DevOps to be a success. There is a need to design target cultures they believe in and provide active reinforcement from senior management thats ongoing.

The biggest threat to innovation is internal politics and an organizational culture, which doesn't accept failure and/or doesn't accept ideas from outside and/or cannot change.

Words from our attendees
  • The CIO Event is a truly global event with international perspectives on current IT trends. These include the usual Social, Mobile, Cloud, Security, 'Internet of Things', Big Data/Analytics, Etc. It's somewhat unique in its format in that it provides keynotes, one-to-one meetings, workshops and open areas for discussions. Its strength also lies in the networking of its attendees both at the events and between times through social media environments such as LinkedIn. 

    - Mal Postings - Global CTO - Quintiles
  • 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!

    - Greta Read - Business Development, Pickfords

It’s been run superbly so thank you, and I look forward to the future events.
