Keynote Presentation

The Future of the CIO in the Coming Digital Economy

As more businesses undergo a digital transformation, and as those digital transformations become more ingrained into organizational culture, "Digital" becomes not something unique and different from the business, but a core component of every aspect of the business. As this shift occurs, IT itself faces the very real possibility of no longer being something unique from the business, but instead a component of every aspect of the business. In this world, what role then exists for the CIO? Two clear paths are presenting themselves - one leads to a focus on infrastructure and integration, to keeping the lights on for the digital innovators, while the other leads to information and innovation itself. Knowing which path to choose, how to choose it, and how to see it through will be one of the greatest challenges CIOs of this era will face.

Takeaways:

  • Change is, if not already here, certainly coming and CIOs who don't prepare for the change may not like the results when it arrives
  • Digital transformation is all about connecting enterprise systems to information technology to drive productivity and performance improvements
  • Be prepared to tackle the tasks that no-one wants to do, but everyone needs done; establish relevance to cultivate importance

Person, Citizen, Patient, Clinician, Health Professional; Does the Health CIO Have the Most Complex User Base?

Who or what is the customer of the CIO? In health this is perhaps a question that is at its most complex. If we don't have a good idea who we are serving can we ever really become customer focused? In Ireland we have tried a number of new ways of connecting with the customer, some of these are now considered to be changing the way we define customers. This session will put forward some of the strategies adopted including; storytelling, personas for procurement, social media engagement, video engagement, staff forums and organisational change technique. Come through in your own views and lets build a kit bag of CIO tools to enable us all to discover who the customer is.

Defining the Organisational Perimeter in the Face of Cloud and Mobile

Protecting confidential information as it is shared beyond the physical boundaries of the organisation is not easy, getting this wrong can have grave consequences for company reputation and the bottom line. In this session we will explore the impact of changing work patterns, employee expectations and the challenges of the extended supply chain when it comes to dealing with confidential information. 

We will talk through some solution patterns that can help to define the information boundary across cloud and mobile landscapes and delegates will have chance to share successes (and failures if they like!) and hear the experience of others under Chatham House rules.

The Domain Name System as a Foundation for Proactive Security

Often overlooked in the never-ending race to acquire and deploy advanced security technologies are fundamental infrastructure components that are already in place and ready to help. Leveraging these foundational technologies, such as DNS, can significantly enhance the overall security of an organization, and they don't require a re-architecture of your network or your existing security processes. This roundtable discussion will dive into the current state of DNS and how it can be successfully leveraged to gain visibility into who and what is on your network, what they are using that access for, and how to proactively enforce controls on their activity, regardless of what kind of device they are using or where they happen to be located.

Get IT Moving at the Speed of Digital Business

With the proliferation of smart devices, connected sensors and a constant and insatiable need for data-driven insights, IT has moved from back office functionality to supporting executive strategy. Businesses need to move at the speed of technology and technology needs to run at the pace of digital business. 

In this workshop two experienced transformation consultants will share examples of how forward thinking organizations are addressing the need to support modern, digital business outcomes whilst defending core markets from digital migrants. Join us to learn how clients have: 

  • Modernised applications to generate $250m+ in sales pipeline within 3 months 
  • Embedded Lean thinking to reduce time to market from 90 to just 7 days 
  • Adopted Cloud delivery models to save up to 26% of IT OpEx budget 
  • Used Hybrid Cloud to save OPEX of ?350M/year 
  • Reduced time, cost & effort of provisioning from 150+ days to just several hours 

We know every business starts in a different place, with its own strengths and weaknesses, and unique opportunities. Nevertheless, there are pragmatic and proven practices that all organizations can use to build the business case for change and to justify investments from board. You will leave this session with plenty of ideas for starting your own project and a few useful frameworks as well.

How to Thrive in the Cyber Security Market Today - Cyber Security as a Business Issue

We live in a world today where connectivity and electronic communications between businesses and clients, as well as other businesses, is an expectation and a foregone conclusion. But this extreme level of connectivity and communication creates an environment that is ripe for exposure and breach. As a result, security incidents are occurring at an ever-increasing rate, and the magnitude and severity of those exposures is increasing. A significant contributing factor to this rising tide of security breaches is the fact that our current security approaches simply aren't business integrated enough, and simply aren't keeping up. All however is not yet lost, though it may seem perilously close, time still exists to invest in a paradigm shift towards a new security approach that will allow businesses to not just survive, but thrive.

The CISO's Role in Adopting Cloud Services

What is the role of the CISO when it comes to Cloud adoption? Is there a board paper the needs to be presented in the context of the business strategy. Is the CISO the broker between IT and the business in terms of articulating risk appetite? Is the role of the CISO to just provide assurance on third party services or work closely with the Architecture function to put in place the architectural principles in terms of policy, standards and patterns for security by design?

Accelerating Business Agility with Integration Platforms

There is a growing realisation that the ability for companies to stay competitive and survive today and into the future, is directly related to their ability to transform into a more agile digital business. At the heart of the transformation discussion is IT modernization. The modern digital business needs to rethink their technology approach to consider among other things moving infrastructure and applications to the cloud, allowing lines of business to take more control over their applications, adopting best of breed applications to meet specific business needs and enabling access from a proliferation of, often, mobile devices. However, the move to modernisation has challenges, not least of which is how to easily integrate the growing portfolio of applications, securely moving, managing, governing and orchestrating data across on premises and cloud based applications.

Do we really need an IT Strategy?

We often talk about it, usually need to prepare it and sometimes actually use it- but, is there really such a thing as an 'IT Strategy'? There's no doubt we need a tool take make decisions and offer clarity to key stakeholders, but we need to avoid developing something in isolation. The Business Strategy is key and managing to a set of principles is essential. The IT Strategy should be clear and concise and enable to us to plan. It should enable is to meet the objectives of the business and mature the IT relationship into a position of trusted advisor, innovator and leader. Once agreed and in place, we should test it by using the components to plan and prioritise. 

Takeaways: 

  • Understanding who actually needs the strategy and why 
  • Positioning with the Business Strategy 
  • Link to Strategic and Operational Plans 
  • How to put our IT Strategy to good use 
  • The Business Value Framework

The Evolution of DDoS Attacks & The Do's and Don'ts of Mitigation

Recent years have seen the DDoS landscape change and the scale of attacks significantly increase.  Where attacks used to seem unlikely, for some organisations at least, they are now imminent.  Consequently mitigation has moved from being a daunting venture to a daily activity. 

As one of the biggest ecommerce merchants in Europe, Paddy Power Betfair faces down DDoS attacks on a regular basis. We have learned a lot about mitigating these attacks and the key pitfalls to avoid when preparing for them.

The approach to DDoS attack mitigation depends heavily on your organisations technical estate and threat exposure.  With this mind the topics and takeaways to discuss are as follows.

Takeaways:

  • DDoS for hire- Technical and costs barriers for attackers no longer exist
  • Cloud Services mitigation
  • On-premise mitigation
  • Preparation and some simple mitigation techniques

IT Integration in a Distributed IT World

It's no secret - the integration of disparate systems, disparate applications, and disparate data stores has long been one of the biggest challenges faced by the IT department. Simply put, getting everything to talk to everything is no easy task. The rapid adoption of cloud delivered services has compounded this problem almost exponentially - if it was hard to integrate when you controlled the whole stack it has become nearly impossible when you control very little of it. To be efficient and effective IT departments need to adopt a new model of system, application, and data integration. Endless webs of one-off point-to-point integrations simply won't cut it anymore and a purposeful, structured approach is required.

Takeaways:

  • Learn how to build a holistic strategy to integrate systems, applications, and data
  • Understand how to leverage SOA and ESB to streamline app to app communications
  • Discover the power and impact of holistic Master Data Management and other data integration processes
