EXECUTIVE PANEL:  Courageous Leadership and Valiant Reinvention – Shining a Beacon on the Future of Business and the Workplace

It’s often said that the skills and traits that helped executives get them to where they are won’t get you to where you’re going. But that’s not entirely true. The authentic and compassionate leadership that top-tier technology executives have demonstrated since March 2020 will continue to serve them well in leading their teams going forward. Still, a fresh mindset will be needed to work with the CEO and the executive team to innovate and reimagine the business and design the future workplace in today’s fast-changing geo-economic environment. Also critical to innovation is the role that business technology executives must play in fostering a connected culture that values Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).

This executive panel of world-class technology executives will discuss the bold leadership moves that enabled their companies to succeed in extremely difficult times, advance DEI initiatives along with the steps they’re taking to shine a light toward a brighter future.

  • Sonatype

    The Sonatype journey started 10 years ago, just as the concept of “open source” software development was gaining steam. From our humble beginning as core contributors to Apache Maven, to supporting the world’s largest repository of open source components (Central), to distributing the world's most popular repository manager (Nexus), we’ve played a meaningful role in helping the world embrace the power of open innovation. Over time, we witnessed the staggering volume and variety of open source libraries that began flowing into every development environment in the world. We understood that when open source components are properly managed, they provide tremendous energy for accelerating innovation. Conversely, when unmanaged, open-source "gone wild" can lead directly to security vulnerabilities, licensing risks, enormous rework, and waste. Our vision today is simple. We are laser-focused on helping organizations continuously harness all of the good that open source has to offer, without any of the risks.

  • 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.
