Thriving in the Future of Digital Commerce: Are You Digitally Ready?

By 2019, digitally transformed organizations will generate almost half of their revenues from “Future of Commerce” business models that combine innovative processes and leading-edge technologies to define new markets and deliver new products and services.

Yet the ability to create new and transformative digital business models remains one of business and IT leaders’ greatest challenges. Transformation and innovation require a new paradigm when it comes to KPIs, collaborative work environments that transcend stove-piped organizational structures, strategic planning and new digital transformation (DX) expertise.

Organizations also need to expertly navigate increasingly complex external environments, including changing regulatory structures, open data and demanding privacy and cyber security requirements. To grow and thrive in today’s growing world of ecosystem-based commerce, enterprises need an unprecedented level of business and technology flexibility.

Disruptive Thinking and Innovation: How to Spark Transformation in Your Business

Luke Williams
Professor of Innovation and Executive Director
Berkley Entrepreneurship Center, NYU Stern School of Business

The future we face will not be predictable. We live in a fast-changing, uncertain world, entering this new global order with a way of thinking that is better suited for a time when we could carefully plan for incremental changes to the status quo. That pattern of behavior is particularly common in successful companies operating in mature industries. They embrace incremental change that supports their current business model and are reluctant to modify existing operations. So they stop innovating. Big mistake. In his powerful opening keynote, NYU business professor and author Luke Williams will introduce CIOs to a way of thinking that surprises the market again and again with exciting, unexpected solutions. A way of thinking that produces unconventional strategies that leave competitors scrambling to catch up. A way of thinking that turns consumer expectations upside down—and can move an industry into its next generation. While creating disruptive change in an industry is what start-ups and small-scale companies excel at, this way of thinking can be learned and applied just as effectively by large enterprises and industry incumbents—in fact, by anyone who’s willing to challenge the status quo wherever they are.

The nature of work is being transformed by two powerful forces: the rise of smart machines and the emergence of a new talent economy.

We’ll explore the role technology leaders play in: empowering people to work more effectively with smart machines and robots, fostering a culture that supports the new workforce ecosystem made up of—contractors, freelancers, crowdsourcing, employees, retirees, automation, algorithms and more—and ensuring they can protect the data of the enterprise amid the rapid changes.

Fireside Chat: How Investing in Data Becomes a Competitive Advantage

Moderator: Charles Pelton
Contributing Editor
CIO

Informatica has been in the data business for over 25 years and has seen how data fuels innovations that can transform entire industries. While the definition of digital transformation may vary, a common thread is the equal amount of opportunities and challenges it creates for CIOs. While the terabytes of data empower us to identify new business opportunities, without an outcome-driven data strategy, that data can remain trapped in applications, processes and functions. To effectively use data as an asset, CIOs must ensure that it’s made available and is responsibly leveraged across the enterprise by managing the data with a thorough, proactive data governance strategy – in tight partnership with the business. In this fireside chat session with CIO’s contributing editor, Informatica CIO Graeme Thompson will share his company’s internal approach to their most strategic asset and the steps CIOs can take to overcome the obstacles to create and deploy a successful, innovative and enterprise-wide data strategy.

Doubling Down on Customer-Centric Innovation

Ron Guerrier
CIO
Express Scripts

With his cross-industry experience in automotive, finance, insurance and now healthcare, CIO Ron Guerrier of Express Scripts relies on a core leadership philosophy: “You surround yourself with exceptional talent, you connect technology to the business imperative — and you keep the customer at the center of the conversation.” Ron joined Express Scripts in April, just as it was announced that nation’s largest pharmacy benefit manager was being acquired by Cigna Corp. in a $67 billion deal. Once the vertical merger receives final government approval, the new Fortune 15 healthcare company will service more than 100 million members in the U.S. Stepping into the maelstrom of a merger between two Fortune 100 companies provides plenty of opportunity for disruption, innovation and, as Ron puts it: “a chance to double down on patients and customers.”

An explosion of new, specialized productivity tools has forced us all to reevaluate the way we define the IT stack for enterprise users.

At the world’s largest international bank, transforming IT from a traditional back-office service provider to a central enabler of business transformation took a fundamental shift in mindset and culture. Recognizing that the technology function was essentially a technology business embedded within a traditional banking organization, the mindset of the IT team had to shift to the fast, agile, responsive mode of a Silicon Valley software firm. “The world is changing around us. Our customers are demanding we use the new technologies available to them as consumers,” says CIO Darryl West, who joined HSBC in 2015 to lead the transformation. “Why can’t we behave like a FinTech startup? We have to disrupt our own business model to create an amazing new customer experience.” In this compelling closing keynote, Darryl will talk about how this global bank is driving commercial growth by using innovative technology to drive a radical transformation of the business, creating a simpler, better, faster and safer customer experience.

From autonomous vehicles to omni-connected consumers, the auto industry is heading for more dramatic changes in the next five years than anything in the past 50, says General Motors CIO Randy Mott. “We are thinking about what is coming over the horizon, every day.” One example of that forward focus is GM’s CIO 100 award-winning Maxis “data-as-a-service” initiative, which puts all relevant internal, vehicle and third-party data at the fingertips of thousands employees around the world. Now six years into a massive business transformation at this Fortune 10 automaker, this seasoned CIO has swung GM’s pendulum from 90 percent outsourced IT to 90 percent insourced. He’s also developed a private cloud platform housed within two new LEED-certified data centers and built four new innovation centers. As GM focuses on creating a world of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, IT is the catalyst to turn that vision into reality. In this fireside chat Q&A with CIO’s Maryfran Johnson, Randy will talk about where GM and its high-flying information technology team is driving new innovation.
