THE NEW ERA OF DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION - UNCERTAINTY MUST BE MET WITH UNDERSTANDING

Digital transformation means many things to different people. Most enterprises struggle with understanding the overall journey, where the organisation is and what steps need to be taken. Infrastructure and Operations must inspire and create new cultural norms for IT to be a success. There is a need to design target cultures they believe in and provide active reinforcement from senior management that is ongoing.The biggest threats to innovation are internal politics and an organizational culture, which do not accept failure, do not accept ideas from outside and/or cannot change. Put simply, it is about fear!

09:35 - 10:10

OPERATIONALISE THE CLOUD: HOW TO MITIGATE THE RISK OF CHANGE TO ACCELERATE BUSINESS GROWTH

Cloud computing has radically changed the way we work. With this change, comes opportunity but also risk. Traditional roles and responsibilities are changing, and the decision-making process sometimes lies outside of the IT department itself. Missed opportunity? Recipe for disaster? IT needs to have a place at the table to mitigate risk and be a real player in business growth.

Words from our attendees
  • 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

  • I thought the quality and mix of contributions and the engagement from the audience was excellent. 

    It felt more like an interactive team exercise in some respects, than a sit back and listen conference, and for me was more enjoyable and genuinely helpful for that. Similar folks, passionate about their brands and their work, but with different best practice to share – very collaborative, which I personally like.

    So all good and thanks for the chance to take part. It’s always a drain on time, which none of us have, but it was worth it.
     

    - Tim Sinclair - Marketing & Retail, Alrayan Bank
  • I just wanted to say congratulations on a great event and thank you all for your help, especially Ceri and Sarah who have spent time in advance and at the event with me to help me get the most out of the days here.I have really enjoyed the event, and made some good new contacts as well as insights into common challenges we are all facing in the CIO community. It’s been run superbly so thank you, and I look forward to the future events.

    - John Nother - Group CIO, Card Factory
