DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION KEYNOTE THEATRE
Digital Transformation is the matter of the moment. Dig below the headlines, the varied definitions and debates, and what do we get? Technology is vital for business success and there needs to be a plan to effectively achieve technology-enabled change.
The Digital Transformation theatre will be host to a series of sessions to help businesses of all sizes understand the questions they need to ask to achieve digital transformation. Learn to navigate transformation on a budget, to scale digital change more sustainably, and align with business strategy.
NEXT GENERATION INFRASTRUCTURE THEATRE
What can we expect from next-generation IT infrastructure (NGI)? How can we use this to be more dynamic, agile and efficient? These highly automated platforms have serious potential to meet IT priorities. Join us in this theatre to learn from experts about its true potential, as well as the barriers to entry such as economical and security concerns, and the fundamental impact on traditional IT operating models.
MULTI-CLOUD STRATEGIES AND MANAGED SERVICES THEATRE
For some, multi-cloud is a strategy set out as part of a detailed digital transformation plan. For others, it’s an accidental process that may or may not be ticking all the boxes. For more than a few, it is delaying the adoption of technology and services, affecting the potential for rapid innovation and ability to outpace the competition.
We’ll be tackling key topics from interoperability, data governance, compliance, minimising complexity as well as throwing hybrid into the mix. For the channel, there’ll be sessions on next generation IT and how to leverage the opportunity multi-cloud presents.
CLOUD & CYBERSECURITY KEYNOTE THEATRE
We are increasingly relying on the cloud and sending more and more valuable (and confidential) data there. Security leaders and technology professionals need a robust strategy to prevent attacks and understand human factors to mitigate risks. Hear from CISOs and international experts on how they have secured their cloud and are future-proofing their cyber security strategy.
DEVOPS & CONTAINERS THEATRE
Understand how DevOps and containers are changing the IT landscape and providing real value for development and operation teams. In this theatre, learn from peers about all you’ve ever needed to know about DevOps culture, CI/CD, DevSecOps, microservice as well as diving into the specifics on containers.
IOT INDUSTRY & BLOCKCHAIN THEATRE
The internet of things holds enormous potential. How do organisations across multiple sectors from transport, manufacturing, retail, healthcare, finance and agriculture deploy their IoT strategy at scale, and securely? What is the impact of 5G on smart cities and what are the challenges of moving to the edge? This keynote will cover the most ground-breaking case studies and enable IT professionals to take home an action plan to make businesses more efficient and competitive.
What is the future of blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT)? Is it worth exploring in the crypto market? What trends are we moving towards in 2020? Hear from the leaders in the field to see where the new blockchain use cases are, the role of smart contracts in organisations, the opportunities and challenges of integrating with IoT, such as how companies can tackle the talent and skills gap.
