close Digital Transformation – Six Steps to Success

CIO Leadership & InnovationHitachi - SVP, Practice Lead

Digital transformation – driving operational improvements in your physical value stream using connected data from your digital value stream – is delivering unprecedented value across industries to those with a clear road map. In fact, a recent Harvard Business School report shows that companies that embrace digital transformation attain significantly better gross margins, earnings and net income than those that don’t. What’s more, those digital leaders are not spending much more on IT than laggards because the big investments have already been made. The challenge is knowing how to connect the data from the digital value stream to drive continuous improvement with real-time metrics and predictive analytics. No matter where you are on the journey of digital transformation – these six steps can help you connect your systems to drive new levels of productivity, profitability and value across your business.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how to connect your physical and digital value streams to create near real-time operating systems.
  • Identify areas of variation across the physical value stream that can be supported by better data and real-time analytics.
  • Gain knowledge through strategic partnerships with digital leaders to accelerate your journey to unlocking more organizational value.

close Steph Curry Cybersecurity:  Nothing But Net!

Cyber SecurityGoPro, Inc. - CISO

At RSA 2017, over 75% of the CISOs polled said they were looking for new positions.  Are CISOs wearing out their welcome with employers? In their effort to secure the company’s sensitive data, many CISOs end up alienating many of their colleagues or creating “hostile work environments.”  Is it a requirement of the job that CISOs live at odds with their organizations?

This session will present helpful tips on keeping your company secure while maintaining positive relationships and job security; what we in the security community might call a true “nothing but net” play.

Attendee Testimonials

"As CIOs we understand the need to network and learn from our peers and experts in the market place. The good news is that there are a plethora of opportunities for us to attend CIO centric events, but sadly, therein lies the difficulty. We have limited time and need to select the events that help us provide the best technological guidance to the enterprises we serve. Having served on many panels and chaired many sessions across many of these events, I have narrowed down the events I attend to a handful. CIO VISIONS is one of them. "

"For me, this event helps me as a technology leader keep abreast of what’s hot, what’s new and which direction technology is headed. Thus, I can calibrate my strategy to better line up with my business from the IT perspective. It also gives me a benchmark as a leader to how I measure up with my competitors and with my customers. I would definitely recommend this to my peers in the industry. I believe others should consider being a part of this to keep your finger on the pulse of technology. There are tons of networking opportunities with peers across the county in our industry. There are also opportunities to meet potential business partners through the carefully planned research meetings. I find the meetings short, to the point and informative. "
