Think Tank: People, Process, and Platform - Where to Start in a Modern IT Framework

10:55 AM - 11:20 AM
We live in a world of limitless technologies. Even with the availability of modern AI/ML empowered technologies, many organizations find themselves with decade(s) old and obsolete systems/processes. Even technology-rich organizations struggle with their people and processes playing catch-up. The main reason for this is our constrained approach toward transformation. Organizations looking to transform should start with a question – If people and technology were not their limitations, what processes would best meet their business outcome? Layer on it, security/compliance needs, and ethical/environmental considerations. Then look for the enabling technologies while not forgetting to upskill their people.

The application enterprises use the most is the browser. In fact, it has become our primary work environment, but the browser we most often use was built for consumers. So, we have surrounded it with an endless, complex and expensive stack that overwhelms your security teams and interrupts end users. But what if the browser was designed for the enterprise? What could that do for security, productivity and work itself? Join this session to discover how an enterprise browser can: · Protect critical SaaS and internal web applications · Streamline and secure third-party contractor access and BYOD strategies · Give you last-mile control to protect users’ activity with critical applications and underlying data

Think Tank: Creating An Enterprise-Wide Data-Given Culture

12:25 PM - 12:50 PM
All organizations have data, but few are actually able to use their data to increase customer value. Companies that leverage data well reap tons of benefits. Enacting these workflows requires a holistic approach to data management. It isn’t as simple as one team—say, Product or Marketing—deciding to be data-driven. Because customer data flows through systems and tools that span every team within the company, building an effective data culture throughout the organization requires an org-wide effort to ensure data is reliable, accessible, and digestible for everyone.
