CIOs as business leaders and the need to look at cloud from a business innovation perspective

Piers Linney, Co-CEO, Outsourcery

The profitability of many companies now depends on effective technology, making the CIO central to business decision making. However, many IT leaders are struggling to understand how cloud computing can fuel innovation and what it means to changing how technology is used throughout organisations.

Piers Linney will discuss what innovation means in the cloud era, the significance of this for the changing role of CIOs, their relationships with the c-suite, and how IT leaders need to think more than ever before as business innovators.

Digital Enterprise and the multicloud- creating the platform for the Internet of Everything with hybrid IT

Metin Algir , Enterprise Cloud Specialist, SunGard AS

An internal reorganization, a shift of market focus, a regulatory update, a variation in buyer behaviour, or a new competitive threat? Such diversity creates complexity. And although we don’t like to admit it—IT landscapes are often filled with unknowns and unexpected surprises behind every cable and inside every rack.

Your current data centre is a distributed hybrid of technologies, applications, services and processes—some new, some certainly not. Getting the right mix is increasingly difficult and always a moving target. Which workloads are critical, which could be switched off? What should you outsource, what can you keep in-house? Such challenges are becoming harder to manage and more costly to cope with—for what you have today and what you may need tomorrow
