In 2013, EY commissioned a survey of cross-sector Fortune 1000 CIOs to learn how they view their challenges in increasingly complex environments. The survey also asked if they are using or would consider using IT as a service (ITaaS) to meet the demands of their company.

Innovative CIOs provide the business with information and ideas. They lead functions that drive value. As CIOs are now filling the role of chief innovation officer, they must use technology to advance the overall business strategy and drive profit. The strategic advisor CIO is someone who establishes his or her role as an innovator and not just an order taker.

By moving their IT departments from cost centers to service providers, CIOs can feel confident that their functions are very current — and will remain so. Join this discussion with Jeff Krause and discuss how CIOs must fundamentally transform their functional capability as a whole.

Disruption in Action - A Story of Integrating a 1.4 Billion Dollar Company

Session Partner: Steve Cretney, CIO, Colony Brands

In early 2012, Al Benson, the Global CIO of Spectrum Brands, was asked to evaluate the acquisition of a division of Stanley Black and Decker that had only a 5 percent chance of closing.  Less than a month later, the odds of that acquisition had jumped to 95 percent and the race was on.  This acquisition, a division of Stanley Black and Decker called Hardware and Home Improvements (HHI), added 33 percent in revenue and doubled the employee count of Spectrum.  However, HHI had no dedicated infrastructure team and had IT assets that were shared between the divesting organization and HHI.   Come hear how Al and the Spectrum team executed the carve-out of HHI from Stanley Black and Decker to Spectrum Brands in essentially 12 months, leveraging cloud and shared services to minimize disruption to the existing Spectrum business.

Building a Service Fabric in the Enterprise

Session Partners: Greg Pfluger, VP of IS, American Family Insurance

                            Ron Gilson, VP and CIO, Johnsonville Sausage LLC

Service relationships exist throughout the enterprise. Every business unit has requestors of a service and providers of those services. IT has long mastered the art of providing a well defined, automated service, but the task of managing services outside of IT can be inefficient, unstructured or non existent Join Dave Wright as he describes his vision for the future of IT and the role IT leaders will play in the evolution of service. He will provide his perspective on applying the IT service model to automate and manage service relationships inside and outside the enterprise.

Software-as-a-Service: Threat or Executive Opportunity?

Session Partners: Blaise Beaulier, VP - Enterprise Projects & Support, Northwestern Mutual

                            Troy Lethem, CIO, VP of IS, Capitol Insurance Companies

Business leaders and CIOs are embracing the idea that cloud computing is transforming the way business and information technology is delivered and supported within the enterprise. One measure of this transformation is the percentage of IT spending occurring outside of the purview of the traditional IT organization – it is growing year-over-year.

Some CIOs see this as a threat to the stability, reliability and efficiency of the IT computing environment. Others see this as a chance to redefine the value proposition of the IT function.

This strategic briefing will be highly interactive, leveraging the experience and insights of the session’s participants to answer the question, “Is SaaS a Threat or Business Opportunity for IT?”.

Jim Hertle,

Sr. Vice President,

OneNeck, IT Solutions

Enterprise IT Outsourcing for Flexibility and Agility

Session Partners: Jerry Fox, CIO, Rockwell Automation

                            Steve Cretney, CIO, Colony Brands

CIO’s are faced with the daily challenge of delivering value to their business.  Business partners are expecting IT solutions and systems that allow them to bring their products and services to market faster.  Does the traditional Ops/Dev IT model have the agility and flexibility to deliver the most value? Can leveraging an outsourcing strategy compliment the strategic intent of the CIO to enable flexibility, agility and improve profitability?

Join the interactive discussion with Jim Hertle that will cover:

·  What decision points should the CIO consider if he/she wants to outsource their enterprise environment?
·  When it’s been decided to outsource, what are some effective expectations and success measures to have with your outsourcer? 
·  How can these expectations and measures translate into value add for your business? 
·  How can you tell if the outsourcer is a true match for your company?
·  How do you gauge the success of an outsourcing engagement?

Develop your Strategy for Secure Enterprise File Sharing

Session Partners: Troy Lethem, CIO & VP of IS, Capitol Insurance Companies

                            Steve Mueller, CIO, WI Dept of Workforce Development

Mobility—and the business demand for secure, compliant, anywhere, any device access to company data—is one of the biggest challenges we face today. The risk associated with the use of consumer-grade sync and share utilities in our organizations is pervasive and impossible to control without providing an IT-managed alternative. Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFS&S) technologies have matured to the point where IT now has the ability to provide a secure, compliant alternative.

AHEAD looked at the key business drivers moving organizations to bring an EFS&S solution in-house, whether as software as a service (SaaS), a fully on-premise deployment, or a hybrid approach. We outlined the most common use cases for wanting to deploy an EFS&S solution and performed a market evaluation of the leading vendors and their offerings in the enterprise file sync and share space as of December 2013. We took a vendor-independent approach based on critical decision-making criteria that any organization would look at to make the most informed decision possible. As part of the evaluation process, we highlighted the strengths, weaknesses, and overall go-to-market strategies of the vendors.

In this session we will equip the audience with the critical success factors, risks, essential decision making criteria, the market evaluation, and a method they can use to develop their own EFS&S strategy.

How do you find, recruit, hire, train and retain your workforce during a time of massive, fast moving disruption and innovation?

Business, government, healthcare and education sectors are preparing, experiencing or responding to massive business model disruption. This change impacts all departments and occupations. The HR department is responding to this challenge with training and on-boarding via social coloration technologies and mobile solutions. Join the discussion with Rena Rasch on how CIO’s can help HR implement these technologies and help themselves in the process.

Digital Disruption - IT Strikes Back

Session Partners: Rick Offenbecher, Division Administrator, WI Dept of Revenue

                            Steve Cretney, CIO, Colony Brands

The digital disruption caused by the forces such as mobility, social business, and cloud computing is forcing the C-suites to reexamine their information management strategy.  This is why digitization is a key corporate priority. Every enterprise exchanges massive amounts of information on a daily basis, both inside and outside of the firewall. As organizations recognize the value of their information for their agenda of innovation and growth, different departments are turning to the strategic CIO to drive the transformation towards a digital enterprise.

Security has also become a top priority for the CIO with the volume, variety, and velocity of the information exchange that occurs. Security risks are intensified by globalization, a reliance on email for business collaboration, BYOD and mobile access, growing regulatory pressures, bad actors, and cloud computing.

 Please Join Lubor Ptacek for this interactive discussion on the effects of the digital disruption, the forces that are causing it, and the opportunities it creates to drive your organization forward.

The Evolution of IT to Cloud Services Aggregation and Brokerage

Session Partners: David Cagigal, CIO, WI Dept of Enterprise Technology

IT Organizations today are far more than a collection of best practices and technology integration projects.  They serve as business innovators, consultants, and analysts.  With the onslaught of Cloud based services offered through various deployment models, IT Organizations must now evolve to also become an aggregator of these services in a manner to make the greatest impact to the organization.  The term Cloud Services Brokerage has now entered our IT vocabulary to denote such a function.  Whether you perform this function in house or outsource it, in a world evolving toward Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, and Social; such a function is becoming a vital aspect of IT.  We will lead a discussion on the requirements and strategies that organizations are employing to bridge this gap."

In 2014, "Innovate or Die," will become the prevailing mantra for a broad spectrum of organizations. Regardless of industry or leadership role, 9 out of 10 organizations are dealing with business model and digital disruption. The utilization disruptive technologies are causing pressure to drive innovation and create compounding value.  Yet, for many companies, innovation and digitization are not an inherent processes.

Building a culture and environment that fosters ingenuity and creativity can be a monumental task. This session will outline the fundamentals of launching and cultivating an innovation and digitization practice within your organization.

Fusion 2024: Looking Back at The Next Ten Years

Peter Coffee, Vice President and Head of Platform Research, salesforce.com

Session Partners: David Cagigal, CIO, WI Dept of Enterprise Technology

                            Jerry Fox, CIO, Rockwell Automation

Peter Coffee will discuss what has "happened since 2014,"  in terms of what we actually could have seen emerging at the 10th-anniversary event -- and how those potentials "were" realized, and the lessons "learned along the way," in the decade that "followed."

Technology:

* Mobile devices moved from being subset-function accessories to full-function, primary tools of business and lifestyle

* Social models of interaction evolved from leisure and person-to-person into the architecture of supply chains and markets

* Internet of Things matured from remote control of appliances into proactive networks for optimized operations and service

* Data management was reinvented from mechanisms of query and report into sciences of discovery and prediction

* Security disciplines came to grips with a world of connection -- in which there were no perimeters to defend, attacks were increasingly sophisticated, and trust was ever more essential to earn and maintain

and the world in which technology is used:

* Higher education was transformed, from four years to own a diploma into lifetime subscriptions for continual maintenance of skills

* Work for hire tilted from employer/employee relationship, to freelance and contractor models as economic mainstream

* Health care was made over, from scheduled office visits into as-needed-only interventions based on in-home and in-car telemetry

* Global competitiveness, in world of 3D printing and flexible manufacturing, refocused on speed of innovation loop rather than minimization of labor costs

True IT Transformation requires a shift in the traditional operating model – from IT as its own business to a service based provider.  As part of this transformation, an evolution has occurred for the CIO, shifting focus from head of IT operations to that of a principal strategist.  This comprehensive approach requires lock-step collaboration with key internal partners including Marketing, Operations, Finance, etc.  Jonathan Martin will discuss the key role that Marketing plays in the overall IT Transformation process, and some of the positive outcomes EMC has experienced.
