Keeping Pace with Innovation, Chronologically and Economically

Today's digital evolution will take major enterprises twice as long and cost twice as much as initially anticipated. They will likely struggle with digital innovation as they realize the associated challenges and costs within modernization. As such, smaller and more agile organizations have a great opportunity to be first to market, while larger organizations suffer through uninspiring immediate benefits. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Digital innovation is not cheap or quick 
  2. How can your organization best plan for implementation? 
  3. Smaller organizations tend to have an easier time testing out new technology

2020: The year of perfect vision? How's it going so far?

Hindsight is 20/20 vision, as the old saying goes: it's always easy to know what the right course of action was after something has happened, but much harder to predict the future. 

At the beginning of the year we were going to discuss with you our predictions for Cyber Security in 2020. Join us three months later and see us analyzing our initial predictions, but also reviewing how working environments have changed in light of the global pandemic and the impact this has made on the Cyber Security landscape.

Office workers?

  1. Gain an understanding of why organisations must adapt to the rise of remote working 
  2. Discover how you can simplify the methods of connecting people to information regardless of location or device

SD-WAN - Making Agility a Reality?

Agility is the latest IT buzzword and is now synonymous with Digital Transformation. It's therefore important to understand how the two go hand-in-hand when thinking in the context of networking.

So what does this mean for the future of enterprise networking?

The New CIO Playbook - How to Weather the Post COVID-19 Storm

According to a Fortune 500 Survey from May 2020, 75% of CEOs expect an acceleration of their companies' technology transformation as we start to re-open the global economy. As a result, CIOs will need to lead this work with a completely different playbook. 

CIOs need to not only help resume "business as usual" while looking for cost savings, but also enable their enterprise for growth. In the 'New Normal,' virtual agile development, security, free cash by moving towards OPEX, automation, and implementing a cloud strategy will all help reduce IT spend. Both SaaS delivery of applications and data-driven decision making will fuel growth.

Work is Something We Do, Not Somewhere We Go

Business continuity and agile working has become a board room discussion and priority over recent years for a number of reasons. 

Work is no longer just a place we go, but an activity than can be carried out from anywhere. Technology plays a key role in enabling much of this, but agile working also requires a change in leadership and culture. 

This session will highlight what is driving the need, discuss some of the successful implementations of agile working and highlight new technologies which are changing how the workspace is being delivered to users.
