Reimagining the Business and the Future of Work

As regional economies gradually open up, many executives believe that both business and the nature of work will change forever. In order to support the business effectively, CIOs and technology executives need to help reimagine and reinvent the business and help the CEO and line-of-business leaders identify new opportunities in core, parallel and new markets. Technology executives also must work with the executive team to identify what the future of work looks like and provide the infrastructure and tools necessary to support this new way of working.

In this Hybrid Summit - which blends a small number of in-person speakers and attendees on location then is broadcast out to a wider audience - top technology executives will share their advice on the roles that CIOs and tech leaders can play in reshaping the business and the future of work.

HMG Lead, Innovate, Disrupt Tech Talk: The Rise of SaaSOps

David Politis, Founder and CEO, BetterCloud

We've reached a tipping point with SaaS. Best-in-breed applications like G Suite, Zoom, Slack, and Dropbox have spurred unprecedented levels of productivity for businesses, giving rise to what we today call the digital workplace. But it's also introduced a host of major challenges. First, the growing number of SaaS applications used within an organization has created an unmanageable amount of administrative work for IT. Second, the freedom these applications have given employees have left organizations with little to no visibility into how sensitive business data and files are being managed. As a result, a new movement is emerging in the enterprise: SaaSOps. We'll deep-dive into the disciplines, processes, technologies, and people required to sucessfully enable your organization through SaaS.
