Keynote Presentation

Digital Transformation & the IT Paradox

Making the transition from legacy systems to next generation implementations is a major decision point for virtually any organization trying to take advantage of the new era in end user enablement through personal devices, connectivity and apps. Indeed, while digital transformation is one of those key buzzwords that many toss around, what does it really mean and how will it affect your business? Further, with so many options on the horizon, what are some of the key components you need to be most aware of and in some cases, concerned by? And how can you avoid many of the failures currently prevalent among companies trying to make digital transformation work for their business with limited success? 

This presentation will focus on key strategies and implementation techniques that will ultimately make it far easier to migrate to next generation business solutions. 

Covered in the material will be:  

1.   How does mobile enablement directly affect my business?
2.   Which workers are most likely to demand and/or require new systems and why?
3.   With all the talk of relying on the cloud, is it really the panacea that it's cracked up to be?
4.   Avoiding the pitfalls of inadequate security and the monumental costs associated with a lack thereof.
5.   How to align a strategy to best leverage partnerships and services when resources are limited and plans aren't complete.

Keynote Presentation

The Path to Cloud Commoditization

With the convergence of several major technology trends, the industry is heading towards a commoditization of cloud computing platforms through the use of containers, container orchestrators and corresponding platform-as-a-service offerings. We'll discuss how these trends manifest themselves within the emerging landscape of platforms and tool chains and most importantly, how our customers can leverage these trends to light up their applications in the cloud at lower cost and no cloud vendor lock in.

Takeaways:

  • Convergence of Container Orchestration and Platform-as-a-Service
  • Enabling Cloud Portability with Infrastructure-as-Code
  • Balancing the Trade Offs Between Cloud Native vs. Cloud Portable
 

2:05 pm - 2:35 pm

Samsung Case Studies

Work Without Barriers

In today's enterprise landscape we often encounter many obstacles to doing business. Obstacles could be lack of data, or physical location. Sometimes they are even the security policies or tools and devices we see as necessary. So, how do we ensure that these things don't negatively affect customer satisfaction or hinder employee efficiency? At Samsung, we've challenged ourselves to allow our customers to work without barriers. This presentation will highlight a few ways Samsung can use our products and solutions to help customers do bigger things.

Takeaways:

  • Gear VR - Create new and exciting ways for your customers to interact with your product. Create immersive experiences for employee training an education.
  • Wearables - Send, receive and interact with quick, non-invasive notifications.
  • IoT - Collect data to allow for automation and efficiency and to make more informed business decisions.
  • DeX - Blur the lines of work and personal as well as mobile and desktop allowing for greater productivity without sacrificing mobility.

Executive Visions Panel

Facilitating Technology-Enabled Business Transformation in the Connected Digital Enterprise

The role of the modern IT executive is more complex than it has ever been before. Not just because the technology landscape has become more complex, but also because increasingly IT execs have had to become a business-focused executive, not just a technologist. Long have we talked about the CIO and CISO getting a seat at the table but modern businesses are now demanding that their technology impresario join them and leverage this deep and rich technical acumen to allow the organization as-a-whole to better position itself for market-place success. Technology has always had a transformative impact on business, and perhaps nowhere is this ongoing evolution more keenly apparent than in pervasive connectivity. Today's extreme connectedness is the primary force shaping the strategic and tactical outlooks of all enterprises. 

 Takeaways:

  • IT leadership can no longer be simply technology focused, but must instead take their visibility into business process and become business focused 
  • The ability to consume and optimize real-time events is drastically changing the landscape of business and consumer capabilities in this rapidly expanding everything-connected world. 
  • Enterprises are advancing modern methodologies and technologies in order to move with speed in a connected world. 
  • Success for CxOs will be measured not in how they can enable enterprise decisions, but in how they can drive growth.
