CIO National Virtual Summit

June 23, 2020

Virtual CIO National Summit

In today’s digital landscape, the role of the CIO has become the most dynamic amongst their peers. CIOs are focused on finding the most transformative technologies that enable them to bring value to their enterprise and customers.

Adopting an enterprise wide transformation strategy is driven by fundamental shifts in internal and external forces that impact the business and how it operates. Disruptive technologies are being introduced to the market faster than ever and executives must have the ability to align and address the enterprise-wide transformation challenges. These changes will ultimately influence strategic planning, business operations and the overall trajectory of the operating model moving forward. With unceasing demands, technology has become more complex and solution providers more difficult to decipher.

On June 23rd, Apex Assembly will unite visionary leaders and industry experts for a half day of content and discussion, where we will examine the challenges of 2019 and concentrate on the most pressing issues of 2020 in the information technology sector.

Through collaboration with our executive community, we have discovered key industry challenges and trends. These topics form the foundation of the Summit and will be addressed through Panels, Disrupter sessions, and Fireside chats.

Hosted using video conferencing technology, our Virtual Summit gives executives and service providers the opportunity to engage with like-minded executives and industry leaders without having to leave their office or home.

Anyone can log in from anywhere. All you need is WiFi.

Disrupter Presenter: “Lost in Transformation: Breaking Down The Silo

Aaron Lint
Vice President and Chief Scientist

read more »

Every enterprise in the world is being forced to adapt to reach customers with the connected experiences that their market demands. With that upheaval as a backdrop, working from a cogent set of objectives and validating them through metrics and actual results creates friction between teams, especially when faced with rapid agile release cycles and a constantly evolving security landscape. Employees at all levels are making decisions without context in so many cases. When armed with concrete feedback from the breadth of your organization, it is possible to deliver secure digital experiences while still driving business objectives.

In this session, we’ll share:
– How to develop web and mobile applications with designed-in security
– How to gain visibility and orchestrate throughout the software development life cycle and business value streams
– How to unify teams, processes and toolsets and connect contributions all the way up to business outcomes
