Powering intelligence at the digital edge

Digital transformation is accelerating across all industries. Key trends are creating the need for real-time interaction and forcing digital services to the edge. All firms need to manage data and security locally, while trading digital goods and services globally. Solving for this requires an interconnection-ready approach, connecting to partners and providers of choice around the world and integrating services leveraging software controls. Learn best practices from a proven, repeatable architectural framework, called the Interconnection Oriented Architecture (IOA) to solve for the intelligent digital edge of the future.

The Enterprise Immune System: Using Machine Learning for Next-Generation Cyber Defence

A fundamentally new approach to cyber defence is needed to detect and investigate ​security  threats that are already inside the network before they turn into a full-blown crisis. By analyzing every network, device, and user, and modelling them as they go about their day-to-day activity, the Enterprise Immune System can establish a highly accurate understanding of normal behavior. It can therefore spot abnormal activity as it emerges, and even takes precise, measured actions to automatically curb the threat. Rules and signatures are not keeping pace with today’s rapidly evolving cyber-attacks. The Enterprise Immune System represents a fundamental step-change in automated cyber defence and is relied upon by organizations around the world, and can cover up to millions of devices.

Enabling Agile Digital Transformation: A Multi-Cloud Future?

Efficient DATA Migration. Secure, Flexible Access. The Optimal Cloud Environment

 

Enterprises willing to transform, diversify and grow, need to be prepared for significant digital disruption.

To stay relevant to the fast changing market demand, create and roll-out solutions with faster-time-to-market and create incremental value to their stakeholders, enterprises see opportunity everywhere in digital transformation.

Organisations will need competitive DATA strategies to be competitive. Outsourcing their Data Storage where appropriate, accessing multi-cloud environments securely and with flexibity alongside their traditional Server storage.

Senior IT professionals like CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors are now considered value creators and as enablers of this transformation. How adequately and swiftly they integrate technologies emerging from IoT, data generation and analytical capabilities, implementation of cost effective tools such as AI, AR, VR and robotics onto their existing business culture and operational technologies determines the success of their businesses.

The changes bring with them huge opportunities and challenges.

  • How can they consolidate and migrate from legacy IT systems?
  • How to understand their transformation needs in line with enterprises’ declared business objectives?
  • How to choose optimal IT architecture and networking solutions?

Discussion Topic B:

Hybrid Cloud Technologies: Ensuring Flexibility for Efficient Infrastructure Networks

 

Enterprises are gearing up for an eventuality of working in an environment of hybrid cloud architecture. This transition from private, public or multi-public operating environments could pose security risks, non-optimal resource utilization and additional TCOs.

To understand how enterprises would migrate to hybrid cloud, there are challenges that need to be addressed: how vendor-native or vendor-agnostic the current on-prem solutions are? Are enterprises becoming more focused on cost control of individual procedures? How are APIs aiding managing the cloud resources?

Discussion Topic C:

Digital Transformation Driving Towards the Shared and API Economy Business Model
How are Blockchain, AI, API are being leveraged and how enterprises responding while transforming their business model

 

Digital disruption has come to stay and is no longer called a disruption; it has now been accepted as an enabler and as a route to efficient and faster transformation. Enterprises’ perception of transformation needs are now increasingly been driven by the need to create incremental value.  Forerunner Companies are creating new business models, and the Sharing Economy is one of the most widely realized model, with the Global Sharing Economy by 2025 becoming a US$250 billion market.

CIOs and IT professionals are the enablers of digital transformation. Technologies that enable swift integration of existing and new technologies onto existing business culture and operational technologies offer immense benefits. What are the challenges that need to be mitigated by stakeholders to support and anticipate new business models, to improve the efficiency, and to expand new revenue source?
