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.

ATTENDEES

Over the year’s we’ve help thousands of senior-level IT executives connect with peers in different industries to discuss their top-of-mind directives. Delegates from the 2017 series included:

Attendee Testimonials

"The format of the sessions and one-on-one meeting with vendors was a very effective use of my time. The best part of the event is the experts from various areas of information security and solution providers under one roof. It provided an opportunity to learn in a succinct manner without spending too many days out of the office."

"CIO VISIONS is time well spent. In the office, I often don't have time to answer all the emails I received from vendors and then find out which one is the right fit for what I need. The personalized research meeting format allows me to have conversations with vendors that I currently have initiatives for, so the conversations with them are very productive. The sessions are in line with current industry and the networking experience with industry peers is phenomenal!"

"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. "

"CIO VISIONS Mid-Marekt is an excellent event for IT leaders to connect, network and discuss the current state of IT. With practitioners providing the presentations and key talks, this is a very practical and "real" event for the attendees."
