Executive Interview: Surviving (and Thriving) in 2021 and Beyond
Dr. David Bray, Inaugural Director, Global GeoTech Center & Commission, Atlantic Council
This session is intended to be a fireside chat on why digital leaders must ensure their organizations can both survive and thrive in 2021. Advances in data capabilities, tremendous leaps in technologies, and changing geo-economics are introducing major challenges globally for all leaders. These challenges include increasingly complicated tech-meets-geopolitical landscapes, trade wars, the impacts of COVID-19 and a slow global recovery, the challenges of bot-driven misinformation out of context that increasingly polarizes societies, as well as the risk of international tensions becoming more heated and kinetic. Yet, in every crisis there is opportunity.The fireside chat will highlight where the world is, and more importantly where the world is headed, so you can be ready to "skate towards the puck" and ensure your organization thrives in 2021 and beyond. In the spotlight for this session is Dr. David Bray, who Business Insider named one of the 'top 24 Americans who are changing the world', who received the Global CIO 100 award twice in 2015 and 2017, and who has received the National Intelligence Exceptional Achievement Medal for operating in challenging, turbulent environments.
Trevor Schulze, SVP & CIO, RingCentral
The role of the CIO has been on a steady rise for the past several years. As the way people work continues to change, the demands from today’s global, mobile, and distributed workforce are also rapidly evolving. We’re at a point in time where the CIO is now front and center to defining the digital culture of an organization with a mega-trend at play that I like to call, ‘Systems of Experience.’ During my talk, I will focus on the role of the CIO amidst this shifting tide and what it takes to create a digital culture to support the future of work.

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.https://www.sonatype.com/

History In 1997, a group of prominent CIOs in the Central Florida area decided to establish a non-competitive environment where CIOs could collaboratively share in knowledge and work experiences. The founding fathers included Andy Wing, Rick Sickles and Ron Maciejewski. Wing became the group’s President and initiated the recruitment process – encouraging Hugh Moore, Jim Dekle and Garrett Grainger to join as founding members to lead the new group, which was named the Central Florida CIO Council. Several years later, another member of the Council, Dave Razmussen, challenged the group to convert to an affiliate chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM) – a watershed decision in our growth. The organization officially became a SIM chapter in 2001.https://chapter.simnet.org/centralflorida/aboutchapter/new-item
