1030 - 1130 RingCentral Boardroom: What's the right long-term technology choice?

Lockdown took many businesses by surprise. Larger companies were typically slower to respond, and some had problems adjusting to the new conditions.

The time for quick fix solutions is far behind us. Does that mean all organisations are prepared for the era of long-term remote collaboration? No. Preparedness looks different for each organisation. The adoption of technology must be a means to an end – margin, security, employer value proposition – rather than an end in itself. Join RingCentral for a virtual discussion on how businesses can best prepare their organisations for success in the years to come.

How will the CIO continue to be a foundational role for success of any organisation

The CIO relationship with the Executive continues to evolve. CIO as best friend of, the CEO, the CMO, the transformation director and in fact all of the exec team to allow the business to progress and build for the future.

Keynote: Building the Next-Generation Enterprise

In 2011, Marc Andreessen famously wrote a piece for the WSJ entitled “Why Software Is Eating The World” to mark the emergence of the cloud. In 2021, we're all reeling from the impact of COVID-19 and looking to the cloud to keep us safe. Today we find ourselves living in an age when, instead of software eating the world, safety is eating the world.

The digital transformation of the safety tech stack is underway due to the pandemic's prolonged impact. Whether it's shifting to "work-from-home" or facilitating "return-to-work" or achieving "buy-online-pick-up-in-store," the necessity to keep people safe in all modes of their lives has become a core technology challenge. Understanding the three key pieces of the safety stack and where it's headed next will be the topic I can cover during a panel or talk.

Keynote: Communicating Risk: The CIO’s Guide to Innovation

In today’s enterprise landscape, the software that IT teams regularly deliver throughout an organization is the backbone for innovation. But, all too often, many CIO’s are under pressure to automate more and spend less, most working with highly complex integrations and ecosystems. How do you begin to push through the noise and concentrate on what really matters when innovating? Join us as we’ll share how having a common language and a risk-based, AI-powered approach to testing can help you focus resources, innovate faster and do it dependably.

Keynote: Why cloud and Internet will play an increasing role in Enterprise Networking

Along with every Enterprise company’s ambition to drive towards a network with much more automation and flexibility there is a need to really challenge the way networks have historically been built. With the move towards the cloud and the increasing use of public Internet rather than static MPLS solutions to access applications, a new breed of Service Providers has appeared on the market. This session will explain what is new and how to take advantage of new opportunities.

Is an entrepreneurial spirit essential for a CIO?

CIOs who most successfully traversed the transformation required over the past 18 months are entrepreneurial in their approach and business focused in their delivery. Does this mean the role of the CIO is evolving or has the pandemic merely highlighted the vital attributes required for the modern day CIO?
