Corporate and Enterprise IT Strategy – Module 1
The Agenda for this one-day executive session is an amalgamation of master-classes, executive briefings, open forum discussions and case studies based on topics recommended by professionals facing these challenges on a daily basis. IT Enterprise strategy conference delivered consecutively over two halls covers the strategic (planning) and operational (delivery) aspects of the CIOs portfolio. The presentations are deliberated and facilitated by leading practioners, researchers, IT leaders and entrepreneurs bringing together the best of breed from a diverse range of industries from around the globe.
Core topics are as follows:
Big Data: Organizations today are preparing to move beyond terabytes into the petabytes scale. Senior executives need to determine the design and architecture to store, manage and analyze the data. Many questions are being raised such as: where will the data reside, exploring the use of cloud as a repository, managing unformatted data. Who will manage the data, assessing the best big data management tools that support predictive analytics? The sessions will provide delegates with the key drivers and empowering them to develop the “big data” strategy and operational plan, ensuring the right structure is implemented to increase the value delivered to the organization’s stakeholders.
Cloud Technology: Cloud is having a deep impact beyond the obvious change in the way IT is organized and delivered. Thought leaders are changing their approach towards designing their facilities. The sessions in this vertical will cover how networking technology is changing to service the ever-expanding cloud, a pressing need for design and functionality to change at the chip level in order to support big data processing and how to select and assess platforms that run cloud applications in order to ensure the senior decision maker meets the business demand. A special session has been developed to address the security and legislative issues surrounding data sensitivity.
Virtualization: Advantages of this methodology are not limited to the balance sheet. Virtualization today has become a foundational part of the IT infrastructure. Server consolidation - now a normal practice - has demonstrated its obvious impact on the capital spend of an organization. However, are senior executives taking full advantage of their existing virtual technology such as dynamic workload management, usage based financial models and systems performance analytics? The path from virtualization to private cloud needs a well managed understanding of one's infrastructure. In order to leverage the latest tools and techniques to address the fast expansion, one must valuate the latest in capacity planning, performance and management tools. The virtualization session is an advanced master class for senior executives updating them about the latest trends in this area.
Mobile Communications: Mobile technologies are expected to grow at an astounding pace over the next 5 years. The use of mobile devices within the corporate workforce is becoming an uneasy reality for many senior IT executives. Mobile operating systems are becoming increasingly advanced in their approach towards facilitating highly secure platforms. This tectonic shift is forcing an incredible change in the way IT provides applications to its users. Technology pundits forecast a drastic change in the IT enterprise architecture, rendering most of the existing architecture obsolete within the next decade. An open forum discussion has been designed to deliberate over the extent of the change needed to facilitate this reality.
