AI and machine learning will be commonplace. Bots and digital agents will be so integrated into the workforce that we’ll have forgotten about the days before they were there. Every device, application, interaction, and creature will be instrumented (often multiply so), and IoT will simply be “the Internet”.
But what will life really be like in 2025 and beyond? How will enterprises function? What will employees, customers, and consumers be doing, thinking, worrying about? And most importantly, what should enterprise technologists be doing today to prepare themselves and their organizations for this brave new world?
Join three successful IT leaders who will discuss how their organizations have transformed through the use of technology.
In this new work-from-home world IT leaders must move quickly to deploy and manage technologies that support remote work. This means providing sufficient performance, reliability, and security, as well collaborative tools to enable employee and customer engagement regardless of location. It also means enabling management and analytics that provide insight into performance and utilization. In this session, we’ll share the technologies and deployment approaches that successful organizations are using, and the results that they are seeing from their investments.
IT and business leaders are focusing heavily on improving the overall experience for both employees and customers. Imperative to success are changes to culture, technology, organizational structure, and more. In this session, Nemertes draws upon its extensive research of 1,200+ companies to provide detailed guidance on how to develop a strategy and roadmap that improves customer and employee ratings, increases revenue, and decreases operational costs. Employee and customer experience has become particularly relevant following the Covid-19 pandemic. Nemertes will share recent research on how companies plan to change as a result of their experiences during the pandemic.
62% of all traffic initiates or terminates (or both!) outside the corporate network, changing forever the definition of an “”enterprise WAN””. And 60% of all workloads now execute outside the data center, either on the cloud, in branch offices, or (increasingly) in edge-computing platforms. Enterprise environments are on track to support more IoT devices than humans or traditional IT devices. And new technologies (5G, WiFi6, AI, hyperledgers, and the like) are adding momentum to this already massive paradigm shift. This workshop provides a blueprint for building out a future-proof, secure, adaptive technology infrastructure that supports next-generation applications and systems, and flexes effectively to deal with sudden change (such as the recent shift to working from home). It combines high-level principles and goals with detailed, data-driven touchpoints to give participants the ability to generate their own architectures and roadmaps for customized, next-generation infrastructures.
If we’re learned one thing from COVID-19, it’s that business transformation relies on infrastructure. As many organizations did a 180-degree pivot towards work-from-home (WFH), infrastructure was what made it possible. Technology teams that invested in migrating securely to the cloud, deploying adequate bandwidth, and implementing secure technologies (including VPNs, SD-WAN, and SCAPE) were able to accommodate their businesses’ needs with ease, while others were left scrambling. Join this team of all-star leaders who were ahead of the game in deploying the right infrastructure. Learn what they did right, what they wish they’d done differently, and how they’re planning to evolve their infrastructure past COVID-19 and into the “new normal”.
