Financial fraud is, unfortunately a huge business, with annual losses so massive that were “Fraud” a country, it would have the fifth highest global GDP. While enterprises in the financial services sector have always used analytical processes to detect and limit those losses, as technology moves forward the analytical capabilities that can be brought to bear increase in exponentially in capability and those on the leading edge are able to see, and stop, more fraud in less time.

Overall IT spending is on a downward trend as the market is pushing everyone to do more with less. Businesses of all sizes are under constant demand to be better, faster and to deliver new services to market. Development teams are challenged to drive innovation while compounding delivery cycles, however legacy processes and technologies often act as obstacles preventing agility and sucking up critical resources to accomplish low-value administrative or operational tasks. Technology is evolving at a rapid pace to try to meet these demands, and Coho Data is leading the charge to innovate data infrastructure.

Today’s global local marketplace offers tremendous opportunity, but is rife with potential pitfalls as smaller local providers are threatened by the size of global behemoths, while those global behemoths are challenged by the nimbleness of local providers. To be efficient and effective companies need to blend the best of both worlds, global economies of scale with local knowledge and flexibility, to deliver an engaging and rewarding customer experience. CIOs need to help their organizations build the capability to understand, categorize, and capitalize on small-scale local demand and address it with large-scale global capacity.
The drivers behind most next gen infrastructure initiatives are faster, automated access to resources and greater flexibility. But enabling speed and agility comes at a cost and over-provisioning hardware and software is often seen as a necessary evil.
Join this session to hear how FIS has successfully leveraged predictive analytics to reduce infrastructure costs significantly while also enabling higher speed, agility and service levels. FIS will outline their approach that relies on intelligent automation of VM placements and resource allocations in order to meet workload requirements while also densifying infrastructure in order to save millions in capital and operating costs.
This session will also cover how to:
The importance technology plays within an enterprise will only continue to gain momentum as more developers, engineers, and programmers enter the workforce. As these segments continue to grow, so does the need for diversity of the workforce within the technology field. For a field that is severely constrained by a talent and skills gap, this influx of qualified women can only be a good thing. Beyond the basic ability to deliver on identified capabilities a diverse workforce offers a whole that is more than the sum of the parts, bringing different insights, capabilities, and strengths. Finding ways to drive and increase diversity in IT then should be a key focus for every IT executive.

Toyota is one of the largest automotive manufacturers in the world and world-renown for its famous Toyota Production System. The system focuses on such principles as standardization, just-in-time production and problem resolution. The principles of the Internet of Things thinking offers new opportunities for business value in connecting equipment, data and people.

Healthcare organizations have been slow to adopt cloud-based technologies as compared to other industries, citing concerns about data access and ownership, security, and regulatory compliance. Therefore, few healthcare organizations have developed a true Cloud enablement strategy to take advantage of these platforms. However, end-users are taking advantage of the Cloud. This typically bypasses traditional IT vetting processes, leaving IT potentially a barrier to rapid implementation. In order to prepare for and establish a Cloud-enabled digital business environment, organizations should anticipate user needs and create a business-outcome driven strategy and architecture.
The pressure to remain competitive in today’s environment is at extreme levels for not just organizations at a macro level, but for every group within those organizations at a micro level and nowhere is this more true than in the IT department. As economies accelerate in pace to operate in real time, expand in scope to occur across dozens of dynamic channels, and as interaction becomes the new currency in this human-centric intelligent society CIOs need to ensure they are ready for this transformational future. Join us as we investigate how IT leaders need to re-architect their department, their operations, their infrastructure, and even their personnel to not just respond, but to drive change.
