2023 Southern California CIO Executive Leadership Summit in Partnership with Southern California SIM

California – Thu, 09-14-2023 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Visionary Leadership:  Driving a Strategic and Secure Digital Agenda

Inflationary pressures and other macro-economic challenges are creating headwinds for technology executives and fellow members of the C-suite to execute on and achieve strategic goals through 2023. The fast-changing socio-economic landscape is prompting technology executives to become more creative than ever in a cost-conscious environment and to draw upon authentic and inclusive leadership skills to inspire their teams. Meanwhile, tech leaders will need to remain laser focused on new ransomware, phishing and crypto mining attacks amidst budgetary pressures.
Here are the four prevailing leadership and technology trends that HMG Strategy will be focusing on throughout its 2023 Executive Leadership Summit Series:

  • Innovation & Invention to Spur Revenue Growth
  • Fostering World-Class Collaboration and Teaming
  • Harnessing Advanced Technology to Drive Cost Reduction
  • Securing a Global Digital Agenda

Global economic challenges are creating unique opportunities for business technology executives to foster a collaborative culture, embrace fresh innovative approaches, and develop strong partnerships to leverage hot technologies such as AI, ChatGPT, cloud platforms and cyber technologies to securely move the needle for the business and win in tumultuous times.

In addition, cost management initiatives result in businesses leveraging multiple clouds driving increased complexity.

  • Tonkean

    Tonkean is the OS for Business Operations, empowering operations teams to rapidly improve efficiency with an enterprise-grade, composable automation platform. By allowing ops teams to automate, monitor, and manage mission-critical business processes with no-code, while still maintaining compliance and security, Tonkean enables enterprises to accelerate operational velocity at scale. The Tonkean platform makes automating complex business processes simple and accessible to non-developers, such as business operations teams and process owners, by abstracting the high technical barrier and coding expertise needed to deliver robust, enterprise-grade process solutions via composability. Ops teams compose custom process solutions using building blocks called “enterprise components” or ECs. ECs are modular, interchangeable, and reusable capabilities that perform actions or complete steps in a business process. ECs are fully governed and curated, typically by IT. They can be adopted from vendors or custom built, or they can simply be extensions of existing tools and systems. This allows ops and process experts to rapidly build holistic process solutions that can work with different systems, easily adapt to changing needs, and measure cross-functional KPIs–all with no-code and no change management. Enterprises like Google, EVERSANA, Instacart, Grubhub, Crypto.com, and more rely on Tonkean to optimize and align their operations across functions—including sales, marketing, customer support, legal, finance, and more. With Tonkean, enterprises can expand the pie of who can deliver software to make a world of Makers.

  • Zscaler

    Zscaler, the only zero trust platform that securely connects any user, any device, and any app over any network. Back in the day when your users were all on the network and your applications resided in your physical data center, it made sense to establish a secure perimeter around your network. But those days are over, the perimeter is gone, and network security is all but irrelevant. Instead, you need to put your defenses and controls where the connections occur— the internet — so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where their applications reside. By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realize tremendous advantages in productivity, agility, and cost containment. With our 100% cloud built secure platform, Zscaler can help you make the move to the cloud, securely.
