With the myriad of new modern business challenges that Digital Transformation represents—the ever-increasing need for an always-on infrastructure—business resiliency has become the single most important topic for all executives. Simply put, the ability of an organization to quickly adapt to disruptions while maintaining continuous business operations and safeguarding people, assets and overall brand equity is paramount. After all, when infrastructure fails, regardless of the reason, the harm done to brand, customer relations, and the bottom line can be nothing short of devastating.
It is for this reason that CMG has created the next event in their Executive Insights series—an event that addresses the most important aspects of business resiliency and digital transformation. This one-day seminar will cover a multitude of topics designed to help executives make the right decisions as they pertain to infrastructure, to avoid potential threats that can impact daily business, and to learn what trends will be prevalent in the next five years.
The Stark Realities of Modern Business Continuity
One of the major topics of the event will delve into the realities of modern Business Continuity, including how to complete the analysis of business requirements and critical processes, how to gather business requirements and translate them into successful data management, and how the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) relate to the governance of formal Business Continuity planning.
The New World Order of Cybersecurity
Further within the topic of Business Continuity, we will explore the new world order of cybersecurity: addressing the need for greater controls and security measures as they relate to cloud applications, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) models, and the new digital economy. We will also address topics including how to fully encompass the concept of people, process, and technology as the true trifecta of data protection.
The Demand for Increased Infrastructure Agility
With resilience being such an all-encompassing topic, we will also be tackling the ever-present need of how to increase infrastructure agility through Software-Defined Storage (SDS). To fully address corporate infrastructure, companies require the agility and flexibility to help meet changing business requirements associated with business transformation. Here you will learn how SDS enables companies to manage, provision and optimize legacy, current, and new hardware, maximizing the value from every device, while simplifying management.
Habits and Patterns of Technology Leaders
The CTOs of Microsoft, NASA, and others, have all learned how to become more valuable by developing themselves professionally. During this talk, you will find out how. You will learn exactly how to create better leaders within your organization while moving to the next level. Some of the most potent actionable information from experts who have moved from roles as individual engineers to technology leaders of multibillion dollar enterprises is included in the talk.
