Mobile & The New Experience Economy (And What it Means for IT)

Fifteen years ago the Harvard Business Review argued that companies, facing the commodification of almost every kind of good or service, would soon be driven to offering superior experiences as the only means of differentiation. Predicting the rise of an Experience Economy, the piece perfectly describes our present world - one in which users expect anytime access to elegant, easy-to-use services, all running on their device of choice.

Appcelerator investigates the traits and success criteria for IT organizations in this new economy, and what companies - whether startup or enterprise - must do to win.

Where to begin the Cloud journey- Deploying internal private cloud as an entry into cloud computing

IT organizations are at an inflection point; the current operating model of IT cannot meet the demands for change by the business for faster, cheaper, and more dynamic solutions. Moreover, most IT organizations are expected to do more with ever tighter budgets; outsourcing was the answer for some, while others focus on efficiency efforts to deal with the cost pressure. IT must fundamentally change the way it does business by moving from an IT implementer to IT integrator model, moving from procuring assets to procuring services, move from labor arbitrage to labor automation. Companies looking to start on the cloud computing journey can benefit from standing up their own cloud service. Internal private cloud can allow your IT organization to learn to operate, manage, and deliver in the ubiquitous and on demand computing of tomorrow. Automation and simplification through standardization are critical to managing IT cost while introducing speed and agility to meet the business demands.

Roundtable

Shifting the IT Organization from Managing Infrastructure to Creating Innovation

Over the last 20 years, many businesses have transformed ITs role from a cost center to a strategic business contributor. Driving the transition is a new type of CIO"a business leader who, rather than looking to technology to simply keep the business running, analyzes technology innovations and determines how to apply them to advance the business.

With IT budgets remaining flat or even shrinking, how can a CIO find the time and money to be innovative?  With the added pressure of regulation and compliance, how can you make sure the IT infrastructure is truly secure when you have such limited resources?  What projects can transform the companys view of IT from an administrative cost to a valuable asset of the business?  

Attend this session to share and discuss what you are doing to deliver new services in new ways to new markets to support business growth while at the same time minimizing risks and holding costs steady.

The Power of Storage Infrastructure as a Service

Join Nasuni as we discuss the growing trend among enterprises today - transitioning non-core infrastructure from a burdensome capital expense into a operational cost aligned with the business needs. Storage Infrastructure as a Service (SIaaS) allows businesses to deploy uniform storage and protection throughout an organization, combining on-premises controllers with cloud storage. In a service, data growth and office sprawl which drive so many costs and complexities in traditional storage are managed automatically. Whether your organization is looking to reduce storage costs, simplify management, or improve the service levels to end users, we encourage you to join us for a lively discussion.

Attendees of this session will learn:

  • What is Storage Infrastructure as a Service? 
  • How is it different from cloud storage or traditional storage? 
  • How can storage delivered as a service solve your storage and backup challenges? 
  •  How are companies leveraging SIaaS to reduce costs and deliver a higher service level to end users?

IT as a Service Broker

The business is demanding faster response times and greater flexibility when dealing with internal IT. With this demand comes the need for IT to change from a reactive organization to an innovative one, and from being responsive to business demands to truly adding differentiation to the business. New alternatives for obtaining IT services are pushing the adoption of the IT as a service model.

Additionally, the need for IT to support the proliferation of new devices, meet the demands of a highly mobile workforce, manage rapidly expanding data volumes, and ensure the value and security of multiple data sources outside the enterprise is transforming the physical IT environment and changing the way IT roles are performed.

Trust through Innovation: From Clouds to the Internet of Things

Technology consumerization has resulted in the proliferation of new computer systems in use by enterprises, such as mobile devices in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) configurations, and non-traditional computers comprising the Internet of Things (IoT). Cloud computing infrastructure is supplanting internal IT backend systems as these employee-owned devices are becoming the primary computer of choice at the endpoint. Innovation must provide more granular and elegant solutions to mitigate security risks and enforce organizational policies across any combination of corporate-owned, public and consumer information technology. In this presentation, CSA founder and executive director Jim Reavis will review 2 innovative CSA projects to build trust in the next generation of IT. Jim will discuss CSA STAR Certification, a partnership with British Standards Institution providing global assurance of IT governance. He will also review the Software Defined Perimeter, an IT pilot project within one of the globe's largest consumer brands, that is now a CSA project to develop an architecture for creating highly secure and trusted end-to-end networks between any IP addressable entities, allowing for systems that are highly resilient to network attacks.

Cloud Security " To Infinity and Beyond

This will be a Threat vs. Trust discussion about the evolution of Cloud Security from the likes of Computer Security and Network Security. Our data is going from our networks to BYOD and the cloud just like when it first left the computer room. You no sooner think that you have a handle on your solution and the Advanced Persistent Threat threatens the customers need to access the cloud from their personal device. How do we protect our (their) data and ensure our customers and regulators that we are doing a good job? Remember, Security is like the brakes on your car. The better your brakes, the faster you can go safely.

Gaining Cloud Confidence: Take Control of your SaaS Data

This session will be an open discussion covering ongoing developments in cloud backup and recovery solutions that allow for better administrative controls and will cover three key developments to build confidence in developing a cloud strategy:

1. More administrative controls within cloud applications allow IT departments to proactively gain control over their cloud-based documents, emails and data, even at a large scale.


2. A higher adoption rate of cloud technology is resulting in quicker development. As cloud technology providers continue to recognize the needs of enterprises, businesses will see ongoing improvements of application features and functionalities.


3. SaaS companies, as well as industry-based buying organizations, are establishing standards and certifications to assure that they are able to meet their customers data security needs.

Managing the Free Cloud Storage Risk

This presentation will explore the issues related to the use of Free file storage & transfer services and steps you can take to protect your corporate data. Along with consumerization has come a wealth of cloud services that offer free file storage and transfer services. Some provide storage and others just transfer the files similar to email attachments. In the absence of policies and employee education along with a company supported alternative for sharing files securely, end users will often overlook security and compliance in favor of getting their job done by taking advantage of free and readily available alternatives. If you're not explicitly addressing this risk you very likely have a security and compliance problem with company data being shared through sites where you have no protection of confidentiality, ownership or indemnification.

Key takeaways:

  • There are significant risks associated with the wealth of free file storage, file transfer and collaboration services that exist today. 
  • There are many challenges with implementing proxy rules to block these services. Blocking alone will not solve the problem.
  • Don't just keep telling end-users that they're doing something wrong; give them the tools they need  to get their job done securely while staying in compliance

Private Cloud deployment examples - how it works in real life

Companies around the world are moving into on-premise private cloud environments. Many connect their private cloud to their public cloud service providers. Let's talk about examples of what worked, what failed and why we should think about this evolution. Can you really move from virtualization into automated and orchestrated private cloud? What are the benefits? Costs in money and time? Risks? How do I get my best people to work on strategic business problems - and not my servers? My users want to bring their own tablets, phones, laptops, etc. - they also want to work from anywhere. How does private cloud help me with this? How do I reduce requests for service coming into IT and the support desk? My users want more control of provisioning and want services now. Who is going to pay for all this? How can each department pay for what they use?

Executive Visions

Cloud Computing is about Business

The pressure is on for the CIO to adopt and adapt; through all the conversations, there are still unanswered questions. There is one key question about cloud computing that is still unanswered, but an answer is required to move things forward. 'Is the discussion regarding cloud computing a technical discussion, a financial discussion or a business discussion?' The dialogs within every organization are circular in nature and seem never ending. The core issue is that the technology and the financial components are moving targets. It is time to change the focus and push the conversation towards business and results? Topics like innovation, agility and skills are much more relevant, no? 

This executive panel discussion will cover topics where business is the real focus of cloud computing - and bring the technology into the conversation where it makes the most sense to you and your business.
