Reducing Customer Friction – Because What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

It sounds simple. Customers who experience less friction when doing business with your organization are more likely to work with you again. On the flip side, the more friction they experience, chances are you’ve lost them.

We’ll explore a unique approach for measuring, quantifying and mitigating the friction experienced by employees, customers and partners. We’ll do so in an interactive, collaborative setting where you can learn with your peers.

Discover how to measure the unmeasurable. What you don’t know about your customers’ experience can hurt your organization.

The End User Threat: Peer Strategies for Mitigating Risk

Employees caused nearly a third of the data exposure incidents experienced last year, according to IDG research, and nearly as many are caused by former employees. From phishing to accidental or nefarious data loss, these inside incidents cost businesses millions of dollars each year. Yet only one-quarter of today’s organizations have an insider threat management program in place. In this roundtable discussion, we’ll talk about the elements of an insider threat program and share best practices for risk mitigation, discussing everything from security awareness training to methods that help identify threats to workflows that uncover the extent of threats after they happen. Whether you have a program in place or not, you’ll be sure to learn about new developments and techniques in this peer-based conversation.

Creating Value for the Business through Cloud Migration

An average of 60% of IT is in the cloud at organizations today, in a combination of SaaS, IaaS and PaaS, according to IDG research. That technology shift, in turn, is enhancing IT’s ability to be a value creator, as jobs change to support new business initiatives. Yet barriers to deeper cloud engagement remain an issue — including skills, resources and organizational structure, as well as a focus on security rather than risk. Join this discussion to share your challenges with peers and learn how progressive organizations are overcoming these challenges and more to build a modern IT environment and drive value to the business.

8:45am - 9:45am CIOs and the Anticipatory Organization: Turning Disruptive Change into Innovation and Opportunity

Global futurist Daniel Burrus draws upon decades of research and business experience in teaching IT and business leaders how to think more strategically by separating “hard trends” (which will definitely happen) from “soft trends” (which can be influenced or altered). In applying his Hard Trend Methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel discovered a critical missing competency in many organizations: Anticipation. “Most of the problems CIOs experience are problems they could have seen and pre-solved,” says the author and business strategist. “Once you understand how to separate the hard trends from soft ones, you can anticipate disruptions before they disrupt.” In this eye-opening and motivating keynote, Daniel will explain how CIOs can apply his Anticipatory Organization Model to tap into what he calls “everyday innovation,” solving challenges faster, recognizing previously invisible opportunities – and ultimately accelerating both your organization’s growth and your personal success.

Daniel Burrus, CEO, Burrus Research

9:45am - 10:15am Tech Fluency: Fostering an Enterprise-wide Culture of IT-Business Engagement and Innovation

As powerful forces of business and technology continue disrupting the traditional IT organizational model, CIOs play an increasingly pivotal role in guiding their companies through the rapidly evolving competitive landscape. “There is a new mission and delivery model emerging for IT,” says Bill Briggs, CTO of Deloitte Consulting. “There has never been a better time to be a CIO, because every company is a tech company today.” As such, leaders and employees across the business need to develop varying levels of tech fluency— the understanding of how to use digital technologies, data and analytics— to succeed. CIOs can help make that vision a reality by collaborating across the business to foster company-wide technology understanding and talent. In this engaging Q&A interview, Bill joins forces with Catherine Bannister, Global Chief Talent Officer for Technology of Deloitte Consulting, to discuss how CIOs and talent leaders can work together to establish a tech fluency learning culture for the entire enterprise.

In a world full of uncertainties, the ability to separate (inevitable) hard trends from (influenceable) soft trends can forever change the way companies make critical decisions about the future. “Once you can identify the hard trends that will happen, you can predict disruptions before they disrupt — and capitalize on emerging opportunities,” says Daniel Burrus, whose methodologies have changed the way some of the world’s leading companies strategize and plan. In this hands-on workshop, Daniel will delve more deeply into his hard trends methodology, demonstrating how to apply its principles and encouraging group discussions drawn from real-world scenarios.

3:30pm - 4:00pm Dispatches from the IoT Frontier: Practical Experiments and Business Benefits

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a significant disrupter in areas such as transportation, medicine, logistics, aerospace, and many more. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is an early experimenter in IT disrupters/game changers, and has tried several IoT use cases and innovation partners. IoT can be an inexpensive test bed for innovation when mixed with the vast resources of cloud computing, says JPL’s IT Chief Technology and Innovation Officer Tom Soderstrom. “Number one, build an IoT network that’s separate from the regular network to enable rapid innovation. That’s what we did, and we found that it was amazing.” In this session, you’ll learn and participate in JPL’s journey as Tom explains how we can all benefit from IoT today and tomorrow, what’s coming next in IoT and how it will change the way we all work. He’ll demonstrate JPL’s approach to rapid IT innovation, show some compelling IoT use cases and talk about the architecture enabling it all.

2:00pm - 2:45pm The Politics of Innovation: Why Business and Social Networks Matter

Why should innovators care about governments or politics? That’s one of the thought-provoking questions Zak Taylor set out to answer in his latest book. “The Politics of Innovation” brings together current political and economic wisdom – along with the latest research — on how nations become leaders in science and information technology. “People in the business world often don’t see government or politics as all that relevant to their ability to innovate,” Zak notes. Yet in analyzing more than 50 years of theory and research on national innovation rates, the Georgia Tech professor discovered some unexpected connections between innovation and the strength of private, public and professional networks. In his talk, he’ll share his global perspectives on the intriguing mix of conditions, policies and practices that shape the world’s most innovative countries.
