The Relativistic speed of the 21st century business has come as a shock to those used to Newtonian speeds.
As hardware gets increasingly commoditised and compute and storage are made available as services, the customers of the modern enterprise are making unprecedented demands on its availability. Services, products and support services are expected to be used around the clock and across the world - at the speed of light. The customer lives in a global village, but the enterprise often needs to deal with continent-sized legacy infrastructure overheads plugged into outdated processes.
The squeeze between the increasingly-demanding customer and competition in near-saturated markets coupled with downsizing budgets means that enterprises need to innovate disruptively, not incrementally. Old speed (and thought) barriers need to be smashed.
Time and space are shrinking and availability and customer service are becoming paramount. All these external stresses present massive challenges for the old guard - but also opportunities for the business leader willing to let go of old constraints to build a real-time business.
Themed “BLUEPRINTS FOR THE 24/7 ENTERPRISE: Breaking Down the Space-Time Continuum”, the Enterprise Innovation CXO Japan Forum will feature insights from forward-thinking disruptors, including IT and business leaders of innovative companies in the region who will share their practical strategies and success stories in spearheading organizational change, harnessing the latest technologies and fostering innovation from top down to sustain business in today’s disrupted world.

Enterprises sometimes have a tendency to keep doing the same things and expecting different results. In this technological era, this is clearly no longer possible - but where are the new ideas going to come from? Going beyond the insular world of traditional enterprise IT paradigms, this session will address cutting-edge ideas that have changed science, design, psychology or other realms of human creativity. How can learnings from advancements in other fields of human knowledge be applied to reinvigorate and revitalize the CIO’s office?
Connecting Capabilities: Transform your business to thrive in the digital era.
Yasuji Aoki will share the building blocks for success in a digitally disrupted world, drawing on Telstra’s latest research in partnership with the Economist Intelligence Unit – Connecting Capabilities – to investigate global digital transformation trends. He will also be sharing successful case studies and recommending first steps for companies to embark on this journey.
Is it possible for the modern enterprise to have its cake and eat it too - to think and move like a startup while collecting enterprise-scale revenues? This sessions will bring together startups and enterprises from the finance technology, telecommunication, manufacturing and other verticals onto one platform to discuss the practices that make startups so productive. The brainstorming session will seek out the ‘best of both worlds’ so that enterprises can become lean, mean, creativity machines without shouldering too much risk.
Evolving Data Center with High Speed Network Technology
With the evolution of IoT and emergence of 5G mobile network technology, we are facing an issue of how to quickly adopt new technology to handle exponentially increasing data. What is going on how in data centers? Let’s look into the adopted technology and market trends in the data center and future IT network requirement.
As algorithms evolve and the ability to process and store massive volumes of data becomes easier, many are predicting a revolution within enterprise IT enabled by artificial intelligence (AI). Already, wealth management advisory and healthcare analytics feature a growing AI presence. Will drones, robots and artificial intelligence replace most humans in the service industry? Will many data-heavy decision-making and labour-intensive processes be taken over by automation - especially in places like Japan with an ageing workforce? These questions and others around the topic of AI will be addressed.
From automobile makers to electronics companies, Japan’s foray into East, South and South-East Asia has produced spectacular results over the past decades. However, the 21st century-era startups in the finance tech, cloud, and social era present a whole host of different challenges. What are some of the lessons that can be learnt by Japanese enterprises from the trials and errors of other brands trying to enter the burgeoning Asian market? What unique challenges does Asia present for Japanese companies, from the CIO and technology perspective?
