Conference Chair Opening Remarks: What's Next in Digital Transformation: Pioneering the Contextual Cognitive, Composable Era

Speaker: Conference Chair, Maribel Lopez, Principal & Founder | Lopez Research LLC

Description: We already live in a mobile-cloud world, so what's next. While each of these technology trends has its own challenges and merits, companies are increasingly thinking of how the intersection of mobile, cloud and analytics will change their business. Rather than building separate mobile, cloud, big data and analytics strategies, senior executives should be designing an integrated strategy.  This is next generation of IT, but this transition expands far beyond a shift in infrastructure. Business leaders will use these technologies to change the customer and employee experience with contextual data that makes the end user smarter, not just more efficient.

Description:  The dynamics of IT leadership have changed dramatically over the past few years, as the pace of mobile technology development increases, more reliance is put on cloud-based applications and services, and CIOs and others are assuming a more critical role as corporate officers who are charged with the success of the total business.  Adding to these demands is an increasing push for realistic cybersecurity safeguards, more focus on data and predictive analytics, and the looming challenges of an Internet of Everything connected world.

In this IT Leadership session, participants will discuss the leading concerns, challenges and goals they are facing as the IT department takes a more pro-active and collaborative role in defining and charting business goals and technology solutions become a more vital asset to strategic business success.  Areas of focus include, but may not be limited to:  innovation, data and predictive analytics, stakeholder relations, internal and external communications, vendor relations, and the expanding role of contemporary IT leadership.
