DIGITAL FORUM | June 1, 2022

Over the next two years, enterprises focused on digital resiliency will adapt to disruption and extend services to respond to new conditions 50% faster than those fixated on restoring existing business/IT resiliency levels. Digital resiliency is the ability to rapidly adapt to business disruptions, leverage digital capabilities to accelerate business operations, and automate processes to quickly take advantage of changed conditions to capitalize on new market opportunities. In 2022, workforces, products and services – anywhere and everywhere – must be based on a digital-delivery model or leverage AI/ML-based digital augmentation to remain competitive.

IDC CxO Directions 2022 delivered insights and provided guidance on how your organization can prioritize product development, introduce new services and establish new partnerships to boost your customers’ digital resiliency, ensuring your own success in the next normal.

This year’s agenda featured predictions, insights, and usable guidance from IDC, presented by Rick Villars, IDC’s Group Vice President

Our world is ever dependant on key processes that are underpinned by apps, and the rate of change is raising exponentially.

In the session we will talk about how Tricentis turns this bottleneck into an agent for transformation, enabling customers to deliver higher rates of change at lower risk and cost.

Predictions 2022: How to Stay Ahead of the Curve

Dirk De Meirsman

Regional Sales Director, Splunk

The global pandemic reduced years of digital transformation into a couple of months, and many organizations continue that acceleration while facing huge challenges, not only the pandemic itself, but related effects, like overheated economies, massive supply chain shortages and more. As businesses have to deal with continued uncertainty and ambiguity in 2022, which leadership skills will be most in demand? And what strategies will be needed to emerge on top?


Sidestepping the Great Resignation – How to help your teams Flourish and Focus

Shammy Khan

Head of Customer Success, EMEA, Asana

Jan Horsager

Research Director, IDC

2020 fundamentally disrupted the modern workplace in a way no technological innovation ever has. For many, the abrupt shift to remote work triggered an increase in the adoption of collaboration tools and an acceleration of digital transformations. According to research, 69% of corporate boards fast-tracked digital business initiatives. Since then, organisations of every size, and across all industries are losing productive hours. 61% of their time is spent on ‘work about work’ sitting in meetings, status checks, and searching for information. How can organisations springboard off the success of flexible work and help teams focus and flourish by equipping them with meaningful job engagement and opportunities to accelerate? The shift to remote work has seen opportunities in flexibility and better work-life balance. As teams and organisations search for balance, join this session to hear how these challenges can be resolved through meaningful changes to how we work.

DevSecOps Principles

Stephen Walters

Field CTO, Everbridge

The industry has struggled to define DevOps, so how will it cope when you extend that to DevSecOps? This talk will help you to define the key principles for DevSecOps, destroy some myths, and most importantly, understand what the practical requirements are for implementing DevSecOps. We will also look at a couple of real use cases to demonstrate the value of implementing DevSecOps for Critical Event Management, not just to remediate, but also to prevent security incidents
