Welcome to the 20th CIO Edge: Leading Modernisation & Measuring Value

Jim Berry - CEO at ADAPT Read More

The CIO is not just responsible for technology modernisation across infrastructure, applications, services and the legacy of technical debt, but also the modernisation of perceptions of IT and attitudes towards ‘value’ across executive leadership and company as a whole.

After years of transformation and billions spent, the board and finance want value proven on the spend. But how do you measure new soft skills like collaboration, customer experience, employee experience, operational efficiency and value from ecosystems?

How do you manage the perceptions and market IT projects correctly from the start, so value is correctly measured? How do you dashboard this value to show what you are creating and what you are capturing? How do you make it clear to all involved that you are delivering in your role as modern CIO?

MIT workshop: Digital Value Creation vs. Value Capture. Frameworks to Dashboard your Transformation?

Peter Weill - Chairman and Senior Research Scientist at MIT CISR Read More

As most companies are progressing through a digitally enabled business transformation, one of the most common questions boards and senior executives have to deal with is “How are we doing?”.

Companies create value in digital business from customers, from participating in ecosystems, and from operational efficiencies. Together, these three types of digital value explain 38% of company growth and 24% of profitability. But not all value created from digital is captured by the company – some is captured by the customer, or by other players, or is lost.

In this new research, MIT CISR have analysed over a thousand companies to understand how much ‘digital value’ that companies create, and vitally: how much value they capture, and how to track progress?
Peter will also share case examples of how companies in healthcare and transportation capture value with their digital initiatives and their lessons learned.

As practical take-away, the session culminates with a proposed dashboard with global benchmarks for your transformation, with time to break into table top groups and share effective best practices in dashboarding transformation.

As Chair of CISR at the MIT Sloan School of Management, Peter’s work centres on the role, value, and governance of digitisation in enterprises. Peter was ranked by Ziff Davis as the 24th most influential person in IT and the highest ranking academic. MIT CISR undertakes practical research on how firms generate business value from digital.

ADAPT has worked with MIT to help gather data from the A/NZ region on the effectiveness of local transformation programs. Peter will draw on this fresh research, with local perspective and global comparison for CIOs to assess, reflect and write their next rounds of digital strategy for the post lockdown world.

Attend your pre-selected roundtable to participate in a peer discussion with confidence under Chatham House Rules moderated by an ADAPT analyst with subject matter experts.

Roundtable 1

How IT leaders can Unlock the Full Potential of their People and Tools

with Slack Read More

In 2020, business leaders adapted with agility and creativity to survive one of the most challenging years on record. Now, we are presented with one of the most important questions yet: What’s next?

During this roundtable, we will discuss how IT and Technology leaders can capitalise on the opportunity to:

  • Redefine how we engage and connect with our teams
  • Accelerate work with automation
  • Secure the hybrid enterprise
Roundtable 2

How Can I Drive Business Continuity with Agility in a Changing World?

with Workday Read More

Now, more than ever, businesses need reliable systems that can scale to meet their needs, regardless of how the world or workforces change. No matter what, business leaders, workers, and customers depend on a technology foundation that “just works”. What’s more, as businesses look to accelerate their digital efforts, cloud business continuity at scale is a requirement.

As businesses and the world at large recover from the profound disruptions experienced during 2020 and into 2021, IT has the opportunity to evaluate the practices established out of necessity and more greatly apply the ones that make the best business sense in the new normal—at a measured pace.

For those who have yet to move to the cloud, the past year has made it abundantly clear that not being in the cloud is a serious impediment.

What’s more, companies are finding that leveraging a true cloud system for finance, HR, and planning isn’t just a help or a differentiator—it’s existential.

Those companies can keep the business running smoothly while their workforce has the access they need to systems and data to do their job from anywhere.

Join the Workday team as they address some of the challenges posed above and outline the opportunity for CIOs to lead the charge to become more digitally agile.

Roundtable 3

Walking the Path to Modernisation

with VMware Read More

It’s now become apparent that the forces pushing for IT modernisation are unstoppable. We are witnesses to this in almost every facet of the economy as software continues to transform the world.

They are looking at their multi-cloud strategy to meet the diverse needs of the business and by aligning application needs to specific clouds, they can take advantage of the best of breed functionality for their applications.

In this session, we will discuss the key transformations to support your modernisation initiatives and accelerate the delivery of innovative business services.

Roundtable 4

Navigating a Successful Cloud Transformation

with Amazon Web Services Read More

Financial Transformation is the New Digital Transformation - What You Need to Know As a CIO

with GoCardless Read More

The term ‘digital transformation’ has become somewhat synonymous as we have seen eCommerce explode over the last 5-7 years. Businesses have been very quick to invest in the digital image of their business, externally and internally.

What has come next, which is already showing an even greater return that investments in digital, is financial transformation, a term that describes the process of making financial operations, processes and outputs more efficient.

Financial transformation may or may not overlap with a businesses digital world, yet the benefits are typically far more identifiable and measurable.

With the arrival of Open Banking in 2020, as well as the planned transition away from the existing Direct Debit system to a new way for payer customers to pre-authorise payments from bank accounts by the central-backed New Payments Platform (NPP) PayTo. With these changes comes the impetus for a wave of ‘financial transformation’.

Join the roundtable to see, learn and discuss what you’ll need to know as a CIO to effectively financially transform your organisation.

ADAPT Insights: Are you Competing on Customer Experience?

Aparna Sundararajan - Senior Research Strategist at ADAPT Read More

It’s been more than a decade since smartphones and social media, made your customers more informed and spoilt for choice, while all organisations suddenly had volumes of data on their customers, their journey and their sentiments.

Analytics, AI and possibly every exponential technology started to promise executives that they will truly know their customers – and then unleash unique experiences to build brand loyalty and advocacy.

Fast forward to 2021: Have we moved towards this goal? Only marginally.

ADAPT’s Q1 ‘21 surveys of over 300 local CIOs and Tech leaders put “improved customer experience” as their top initiative for 2021. However, they are yet to fully understand their customer expectations and are struggling to deliver a convenient and connected experience. Why?

Based on research conducted across Chief Digital Officers and the CIOs across Australia in 2021, Aparna will outline:

  • What critical reasons are hindering CX goals?
  • How can the CIO affect a customer centric culture?
  • What CX foundations should CIOs build within the organisation?
  • What strategies will achieve the elusive goal of perfect CX?

Future application delivery, customer satisfaction and competitive edge will come from intelligently deliver personalised services, automated through AI, and based on a single view of the customer, with all disparate data points integrated and enabling that vision. How do we get there?

Roundtable 5

Data Driven Insights – improving digital service with observability

with Splunk Read More

ADAPT’s February CIO Edge surveys showed 83% of attendees viewed building a data driven organization as their top priority.

With this in mind its imperative that IT teams strive to be at the “predictive edge” to enable successful business outcomes.

Dynamic hybrid multi-cloud environments are constantly increasing in scale and complexity, making potential problems and bottlenecks difficult to identify, let alone monitor.

Under-resourced IT teams are facing increasing pressure to understand abnormal behaviour, identify the reason, remediate the issue, and prevent similar behaviour in the future. It is not enough to be reactive to remediate challenges.

This Roundtable will tackle the following questions:

  • How does access to real-time data help ensure resilience and enhance customer experience?
  • How do you re-architect existing tools without adding further complexity?
  • Where and how does AI fit into observability?
  • How do you ensure adoption across teams with different domain expertise?
Roundtable 6

Unlocking the True Value of a Multi-Cloud Environment

with NetApp Read More

Businesses today are under pressure to become more efficient, respond quickly to new opportunities, and improve customer experiences. CIO’s and IT decision makers need to effectively manage and protect their data while reducing costs, increasing security, and operating with existing IT staff.

The majority of enterprises using data in the cloud will be living in a hybrid — and likely multi-cloud — deployment world for the foreseeable future. IT Leaders must understand the risks and benefits of managing applications and data across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

For their digital transformation to succeed, businesses must have access to the right data, at the right time, and in the right place to power their applications seamlessly.

This roundtable will discuss the following questions:

  1. State and effectiveness of your current cloud strategy: Has your business case for using cloud services proven accurate over time?
  2. Health of your cloud budget: Have you found the TCO of cloud changes over time?
  3. Datacentric Applications: Have data centric applications been difficult to deploy and manage in the cloud?
  4. Data Protection Strategies: Have you had to rethink your data protection strategies in the cloud?
  5. Future State: What’s the top thing that needs to change for you to use more cloud services?
