Overview

A Digital First Enterprise is one that continually looks for digital-based capabilities or enhancements that improve business outcomes. Digital First Enterprises take digital transformation to the next level by using digital platforms to deliver digital experience as the default approach. Digital First is a mindset, but it is underpinned by key technologies like cloud, AI and analytics.

In this conference we will explore the business value of technology, and the ways in which technology creates long-lasting value for the business. We explore the relationship between leading edge technologies and desired business outcomes. The outcome always comes first, and so the alignment between business and technology is fundamental: business executives don't care about the technology by itself, but they do care about technology that delivers better experience for customers, employees and their organisation’s ecosystem.

Join us on October 12th to discuss the below topics:

  • Perfecting the Digital Experience
  • Securing the Digital Enterprise
  • Is AI Integral to the Digital Enterprise?
  • Cloud-First or Workload-First
  • Balancing Innovation with Practicality
  • Creating the Digital Resilient Enterprise
  • Ecosystems & the Digital Enterprise
  • Are Digital Enterprises Sustainable?
  • Enabling the Data-Driven Enterprise

Platinum Keynote: Delivering Value with Data - The Key Principles to Success

Chris Royles

EMEA Field CTO, Cloudera

Building a data-driven culture across the enterprise no longer has to add layers of complexity that impact business agility. As the growth and distribution of data continues, businesses must provide employees easy access to the data needed to make the right decisions. In this session we will explore the distribution of data and analytics, wherever the data is sourced, how modern data architectures are helping drive optimised processes, supported by consistent security and compliance across the Hybrid Data Cloud. We believe where data flows, ideas follow

Dan Martyr

Everyone wants a data architecture that’s resilient and reliable. And most people want to build things that are simple as well. In this session we’ll discuss how keeping things simple is usually a great strategy for your data project – whether that’s applied to the technology in the stack or the process of implementation itself – because it naturally creates resilience.
