As a result of the growing number and variety of connected devices, it is now evident that most work, play and commerce has a digital dimension. So the time has come for those organisations willing to take advantage of technology to add a digital dimension to customer experiences, and enhance engagement across any device. They can also turn the data generated by these devices into meaningful insights and quickly and effectively use this data for competitive advantage. The ability to master this feedback will be a key differentiator in enabling enterprises on the digital transformation journey, to reshape and gain a leading market position.
To support the enterprise’s transformation, organisations will need to develop agile and innovative capabilities as well as further industrialising IT by exploiting emerging cloud services, automation and building on the foundation of established methods, processes and services.
The thought leaders, experts and speakers at this event will provide valuable insights into how an organisation approaches and manages a complex and transformative project like digital transformation. Including the key question of how to remain focused on balancing cost and value. Find out how drive digital innovation across your organisation, how to adapt, engage, disrupt and survive.
PROGRAMME TO COVER:
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Mark Fewster, Grove Software Testing Ltd
Modern software development requires modern software testing, and that means test execution automation. The ability to run many more tests, repeatedly and faster than could ever be achieved with manual testing alone, is no longer a luxury but a necessity. Whether you are in the midst of a digital transformation project or simply trying to keep in step with business demands for responsiveness and agility, test automation is a vital component of your strategy.
Tony Grout, Global Lead for Digital Transformations, Atlassian
When your mission is to go at extreme speed, what are the things you need to think of most? Tony talks about the mistakes he’s seen, the mistakes he’s made and the critical success factors he now engineers into any high velocity software delivery organisation
Charles Weir, Researcher Security Lancaster Group, Lancaster University
Cyber security is a big and increasing problem. Almost every week we hear of a new exploit or security breach, and increasingly it affects every aspect of our lives. For developers it now impacts almost every development project they work on. But what can you do, as a developer or working with developers, to tackle the problem without becoming overwhelmed by costs and complexity?
This talk, based on GCHQ-sponsored research at a leading software security institution, answers that question. It explores why conventional approaches have been so unhelpful, and based on current practice in over a dozen representative institutions it tells you five inexpensive and widely-used techniques that will significantly help your programmers achieve software security. Can you afford to miss it?
Neil Walker, Chief Architect, Mastek
At Mastek we believe that digital is not just a descriptor of the solution that we build, but also a description of the way in which we work. We recently developed a concept for using new digital channels in social care, an user base not typically defined as being technology savvy. In addressing this, we came to the conclusion that digital is all about removing barriers in human interactions.
Tom Raftery, Global VP, Futurist, & Internet of Things Evangelist, SAP
Digital Transformation, the Internet of Things and associated technologies (blockchain, machine learning, edge computing, etc.) are the latest hotness. Organisations are scrambling to get up to speed on them before their competitors, or some young start-up completely disrupts them.
Right now these digital innovation systems are, roughly speaking at the same level of maturity as the web was in 1996. So where are these new digital technologies taking us? What is coming down the line, and how will these changes affect my organisation, my wallet, and the planet?
Join Tom Raftery in this year’s Digital Transformation event as he unpacks what the Future of Digitisation is going to bring us.
