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
  • Another great event − one of the best I have attended ! Please pass on my thanks to all of the team at global events
    which has helped make this CIO event one of the best I have attended. A great event theme, with good topics,
    interesting round table discussions, super location and excellent gala dinner event with both Tori and the cancer research theme.

    - Vince Sparks - IT Director, Stobart Group
  • This was our first experience with Global Business Events and first impressions are important. I was impressed by the level of seniority at the event. The venue worked well, the size of the event was good for networking and the 1−2−1 business
    meetings were strong. Well done and I look forward to the next event’.

    - Rob Simms - Sales Director, BOX

  • 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
  • The event followed in the high quality style that we have grown accustomed to at these events. The location was fabulous, matched by a high quality delegate list and superbly organised by the team who ably helped me with any question or request promptly and without fuss. I am already engaged with one of the delegates in helping to present and position ECX to his US management. Looking forward to the Heathrow Conference already!

    - Sarah Palmer - Marketing Director, EQUINIX
