Welcome to the 22nd CIO Edge: Prioritisation & The Enablement Value of Technology

Jim Berry - CEO at ADAPT Read More

The ever expanding CIO remit! Juggling legacy and technical debt, balancing budgets and stakeholders, aligning to business objectives, retaining, attracting and upskilling talent, managing trust and risk, reducing complexity, creating value, serving customers, architecting digital services, emerging tech, improving digital savviness and data driven, leading change… the list goes on.

Now we also face increasing global uncertainty, inflation and local economic headwinds. The modern CIO must lead and ensure resurces by communicating the enablement value of Technology.

Can anyone do all this in one? How can you fulfil this role? And can the CIO ensure margin resilience through technology?

CIO Edge will tackle this head on with our day’s agenda focused on codifying lessons learned to bring practical ideas to empower our local technology and business leaders to become the CIO that today’s world demands.

Making Flexible Work Successful with a Digital HQ

Derek Laney - Technology Evangelist at Slack Read More

Research from the Future Forum, a consortium led by Slack, tells us that inflexible return-to-office policies are hammering employee experience scores. How do we build camaraderie and connection in this new environment to attract and retain talent while delivering what both employees and executives want?

We used to think of the office as the centre of work; digital tools augmented the office. Now, it’s the reverse: Digital is your HQ, it’s where information flows more transparently, where you find people, resources, and the information you need. Companies who are investing not just in new tools but also in change management — these are the innovators and they are scoring higher when it comes to productivity.

But success at work is no longer just about how much works gets done, it’s now also measured on issues like inclusiveness, belonging and flexibility. How can your technology stack flex so that offices go from the organising force for everything to being one of many tools in your toolkit in battle to attract and retain talent?

Join technology evangelist for Slack, Derek Laney and General Manager of Software Development at carsales.com.au, Huw Fowles for an engaging presentation of the latest research and lessons learned.

Demystifying digital dark matter: A new standard to tame Technical Debt

Rob Patenge - Associate Partner at McKinsey Read More

As companies continue to modernise their IT, a hidden peril is undermining their efforts: technical debt – the off-balance-sheet accumulation of all the tech remediation work needed in the future. It’s like dark matter: you know it exists, you can infer its impact, but you can’t see or measure it.

It hinders growth with product delays, hidden risks, spiralling costs, and even engineers leaving in frustration being common symptoms.
As technical debt continues to rise in the majority of organisations and modernisation programs often fail to reduce it, Australia has emerged as one of the ‘perfect storms’ of technology debt, sinking billions of dollars into combatting the challenge.

Join this session as Rob explores how to create a common, dollar-value understanding of technology debt, manage lifetime costs, and regain delivery velocity and time to market. He will also showcase a new score that allows companies to benchmark their technology debt position versus hundreds of global peers.

11:10 - 11:30

Mitigating the ‘red flags’ that undermine your modernisation journey

For today’s CIOs, understanding and navigating the barriers to modernisation is more important than ever before.

Join leaders from DXC Technology’s Enterprise Applications Practices as they discuss how to identify the ‘red flags’ in the journey to modernisation. Learn from customer case studies and find out how you can overcome the top 4 barriers that commonly undermine successful applications

How Environmental, Social and Governance is shaping business decisions: From the CIO view

Damian Leach - CTO for APJ at Workday Read More

ESG metrics are quickly becoming competitive factors for both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) organisations, as customers, employees and investors are including ESG when making supply chain buying decisions, career choices and even evaluating cultural fit.

Employees today have a higher expectation regarding company culture and employee experience when making career decisions. For many businesses, this shift comes at a time when they are looking to make more relevant contributions to operational agility and business success for growth, scale and advance on new market opportunities. It’s becoming increasingly critical to know where organisations stand on ESG and importantly how they rate against the competition.

Join Damian Leach, Workday’s CTO for APJ, as he shares his insights and views on how companies are meeting this challenge with the right data and technologies.

Demystifying MLOps to maximise your organisations ability to transform with AI/ML

Simon Johnston - Principal AI/ML Lead at Amazon Web Services Chris Howard - APJ AI/ML Lead at Amazon Web Services Read More

Today more than ever, enterprises are embarking on their digital transformation journey to build deeper connections with their customers to achieve sustainable and enduring business value. Organisations of all shapes and sizes are disrupting their competitors and entering new markets by innovating more quickly than ever before.

For these organisations, it is important to focus on innovation and software disruption, making it critical to streamline their software delivery. Those that shorten their time from idea to production making speed and agility a priority will be tomorrow’s disruptors.

As organisations look to increasingly use AI/ML to transform their business at scale, the discipline of ML Operations (MLOps) can help. In this session with AWS we’ll look at what needs to be considered in becoming the next digital disruptor, and how applying DevOps practices to machine learning workloads helps organisations to optimise the end-to-end activities required to develop, build, and operate workloads.

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.

As a result, today’s CIO is tasked with the challenge to move from a cloud first to cloud smart strategy to deliver modern applications at the speed of business, with the flexibility to run in the datacentre, at the edge or in any cloud. A cloud-smart approach allows organisations to take a strategic look at what infrastructure will best serve each workload, enabling the organisation to leverage the best of breed cloud services and functionality for their applications, to minimise risk and maximise overall productivity, efficiency, and innovation.

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

Roundtable 4

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.

How can a sustainable cybersecurity ecosystem be a game-changer for your enterprise and why you should try a new approach to security?

Daryush Ashjari - Head of Presales and Sales Engineering APAC at Trellix Read More

Threats have evolved, but security and its ecosystem have not, until now. A recent survey highlighted that on average there were 270 more attacks per company in 2021, which is a 31% increase in attacks with a 29% success rate. Cybercriminals are getting more efficient and skilful.

Dynamic cyber threats have become a daily occurrence and traditional technologies and approaches are no longer effective. As bad actors get smarter, we need to pose the question: are we getting smarter too? We need to imagine that security must be different. Fast enough to keep up with dynamic threats. Intelligent enough to learn from them. Constantly evolving to keep the upper hand. A new approach that could adapt at the speed of bad actors while propelling SecOps teams ahead of potential attacks. We call this living security.

Join this private roundtable to learn about the sustainable cybersecurity ecosystem, discuss how security is changing and how to give everyone in your organisation the confidence that comes with living security.

Roundtable 5

New insights in security resilience for a multi-cloud future

Julie Canepa - CIO at Cisco Asia Pacific, Japan & China Read More

Uncertainty has become the new normal. Because change is coming at us faster than ever, businesses are making massive investments across the enterprise to strengthen resilience. The proliferation of hybrid work environments, the continued acceleration of cloud adoption and the ever-increasing and sophisticated threat landscape have made achieving security resilience a top priority for you as CIOs.

This focus has supercharged security concerns and raised tough questions like “Do I have a holistic approach to securing my enterprise?” and “How do I manage the increased threat landscape with the rapid migration to the cloud?”

Using her experience leading Cisco’s IT organisation across the Asia Pacific, Japan and China, Julie will offer you:

  • Top strategies to accelerate your security resilience, moving from siloed threat prevention to a more holistic approach across your workload, workplace and workforce
  • New capabilities that can increase your security posture but won’t hinder your employees’ user experience
  • Innovative tools to simplify while securing IT processes and reducing your cost in IT support.
Roundtable 6

What innovations will lead to your next breakthrough?

with Dell Technologies Read More

What innovations will lead to your next breakthrough? It could be deploying a multi-cloud strategy with all IT operations delivered as-a-Service. Giving growing teams smarter technologies to power and secure modern workstyles. Architecting a next-gen software-defined data center, or perhaps enabling AI-decision making at the edge.

However, you define your breakthrough, Dell Technologies can help you innovate new ways to achieve it.

Roundtable 7

Rethink Your Digital Strategy to Unlock Full Value from Technology Investments

with WalkMe Read More

Despite all the successes achieved to date, ANZ IT leaders tell ADAPT that they suffer from a lack of unified vision to technology adoption, conflicting business priorities, resistance to change, burnout, and talent shortages.

Technology investments promise improvements in employee and customer experiences, including seamless business processes and integrated communications. However, a lack of digital adoption across your applications threatens to derail these benefits, squandering billions of dollars of investment. Often, the return on value from technology investments are set over a long period of time, with long implementation and training periods.

In this fast-paced world, this is no longer a viable strategy. You need to extract the value of these investments as quickly as possible. And that starts with driving adoption at the point of inception, long before implementation, roll-out, and training. What approaches can you take to overcome these challenges to ensure that your technology investments deliver optimum value?

This roundtable will focus on how to

  • Embed a digital adoption strategy from the outset
  • Articulate the value of adoption to project delivery and business outcomes
  • Rationalise your applications based on digital adoption rates
  • Develop your digital adoption checklist.
