Workforce

Although the world is rapidly changing, the big radical change is still to come. Current work structures evolved from outdated, low-tech, exploitative systems, and simply do not meet the needs of today's workplaces nor take us where we want to go. The coming change is radical, yet is a return to a more natural and humane way of working together to produce greatness. Let's tap into our collective intelligence, let's build and co-create, instead of exploit. And it all starts with self-compassion.

Does it still feel like no matter what you and your organisation do to be more inclusive and to benefit more from diversity, nothing really changes? The change we are dreaming about is RADICAL, and it requires adequate actions/solutions. In this fully interactive and experiential workshop, you will learn and explore the new possibilities that are accessible when you communicate and connect with others from the place of self-compassion. It's transformative, fun and your name will be spoken a lot.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • The change you are longing for starts in you. This technique makes it easy not to forget about it
  • The way you communicate and connect with others has an impact on the whole team dynamic. With this self-compassion technique you can reduce stress, performance anxiety, and burnouts, making your team/s holistically healthier
  • The technique to stay connected with your team/s and navigate with ease through the rapid changes

This session is for you if...

  • You are a leader, manager or HR-professional looking for better tools to support your people
  • You are a change maker, an advocate for equity and diversity looking to create greater impact
  • You want to transform your business and stay ahead of the competition
  • You believe in the workplace that is built on talents, respecting boundaries instead of exploiting individuals

What's Next For IT & How Do We Lead Into The Future

Christine Ashton

CIO @ SUSE

28 June

Security

Leadership

Transformation

The business landscape has shifted dramatically in the last 3 years. In a world where nothing is the same, has the moment come for a new way to think about IT and how it enables business outcomes? During this session, Christine will explore a future in which the ability to choreograph technology will be more important than our ability to code it.

Much of the last few years has been a fight for survival. Amidst the need to accelerate delivery and cut costs, we haven't dared to let ourselves dream. As the time comes to think about rebuilding, we have a real opportunity to do things differently. And to take the lead in defining and developing areas of IT that were immature or simply didn't exist before.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • What changes if we start to think about IT as a product instead of as a service? With a much greater acceptance amongst businesses of standardised platforms, where can we truly add value?
  • How can we spark our own creativity and start looking outside the traditional spaces to find people with imagination and curiosity who can challenge and expand our thinking? By accessing a more diverse pool of talent and respecting real world experience as much as technical certifications, we can explore the real power of technology to do more for both the businesses we work with and for society as a whole
  • How do we open a more fruitful dialogue with our peers and business leaders about how IT can contribute to longer-term business success and potentially bridge the perceived digital skills gap in a different way?

This session is for you if...you like to ask, 'What would happen if…?' This is a rare opportunity to revisit what drove you to pursue a career in technology in the first place and come together with your peers to think about how we recapture that magic.

Software

Technical

Cognitive biases are everywhere, and have the power to derail working practices. At every turn, cognitive biases can hinder and distract cyber security teams and their strategies away from the key risks and threats likely to catastrophically damage their network environments, in favour of new headline-making attack techniques or vulnerabilities which may never be used against their organisation.

In this presentation, Hanah Darley will provide a brief introduction to cognitive biases and discuss the implications within cyber security for leaving those biases unchecked, as well as identifying key mitigations for cognitive biases and discussing the growing role that technology is playing in augmenting human analysis and security strategies.

Seamless & Automated Migration From Any Integration Tool To SnapLogic

Simona Todoroska

Managing Director @ IWConnect

28 June

Transformation

Software

Workforce

If your business has an appetite for change and a desire to do things differently on a modern infrastructure, it doesn't have to be the nightmare you might have conjured up in your head. But, equally, transforming a supportive function into a business enabler that drives the company forward and helps you meet the increasing expectations of your customers should not be a pipe dream.

But in a digital world where every business is challenged to accelerate the pace of digital innovation, businesses need something that is hardware and software agnostic. Software has become the backbone of every company. It requires a modern infrastructure that is more flexible and agile when engineers want to change things.

By moving outdated assets to a modern infrastructure of their choice, businesses can finally free themselves from the spaghetti architecture. Of course, business enablement is not a journey you should rush and proper plan and base is a must.

Enterprises, regardless of their size, make constant efforts to speed up processes as a critical driver to their market delivery. Today, most of these enterprises strive to replace their outdated integration tools with more efficient technology. Having that in mind, employing a semi-automated migration process to a new tool is a must-have asset made possible with our accelerators for automated migration projects to the new integration tool that they bought or plan to buy.

In this session you'll discuss the key benefits of utilising migration accelerators by explaining their architecture and the approach to the methodology of the migration process.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • How to approach an integration migration project
  • Explore migration accelerators as a boost of any migration project
  • Explore the business values behind all this (speed, cost, reduced dev effort)

This session is for you if...

  • You have an integration system that you want to replace
  • You are afraid of taking a migration project under your umbrella
  • You want to go away from legacy
  • You are planning or have a ongoing digital transformation journey
  • You want to learn more about automation and integration
  • You have limited budget for replacing a bottleneck integration system

Skills

We are in a new era of communication, from operating on a hybrid model to further integrating technology into our daily work lives, to the greater value placed on leading from a place of empathy, understanding, and trust.

As female leaders in business, how do we navigate these changes within our local organisation and cross-culturally? How does this impact the ways we communicate? Examining our evolving ways of communicating is now more important than ever to address the new frontier of work life, manage cross-cultural teams, and nurture true equality in our organisations

Told from the perspective of a business leader to other executives, aspiring leaders and entrepreneurs, Frédérique will address the value of the soft skills that are needed for clear, concise, creative communication in a cross-cultural organisation, and align how we can nurture these soft skills to collaborate best with modern technology and ways of working. Ultimately, elevating our voice as women in business and technology, and exemplifying what communications means in the modern business world.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • How to nurture soft communications skills is just as important to effective leadership and collaboration, as knowledge of new technology and industry
  • Communication does not look or sound the same in every culture: cross-cultural understanding is critical when working at a global level
  • Technology is here to support the ways we work and increase collaboration, not to replace tried and tested ways of communicating

Data

Transformation

Technical

The future of work is now and automation has become a critical component of the enterprise digital transformation strategies. All organisations are placing 'automation first' initiatives on their lists of strategic imperatives. Why not get a head start into this new innovation era and future-proof your workforce or yourself?

We are at the start of a new era, the Automation Citizen Developers era. This turning point came as a natural consequence due to limited resources in IT or data science which led to limited scope and pace for Intelligent Automation opportunities.

This workshop will take a deep dive into key components to consider to run across your organisation a successful Citizen Development program aligned to your automation objectives and to your business strategy: innovation as a culture, change management, digital literacy, process improvement, technology stack, governance model and overall organisation.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Come away with a Citizen Automation Governance model focused on people, process and technology
  • A Master plan for up-skilling yourself or your employees or to reduce the learning curve and time-to-value
  • An Automation First Mindset roadmap to shrink digital skills gap, scale with confidence and maximize success

This session is for you if...

  • You are interested in how to build a digital mindset
  • For all people who are passionate about innovation and who wants to understand how to practically implement an automation-first approach and to become/to train citizen developers within their organisation

Sustainability has never been more important to our collective future. Whether we look at environmental or social sustainability, the challenges we face affect everyone’s personal and professional lives.

Digital technologies are among the most important tools available to help society make progress. We also recognise development of technology comes with new problems to solve. We believe our industry has a great opportunity and a moral obligation to drive sustainable growth. Sustainability is top of mind for most organisations in our industry, but there is still a gap between ambitions and what is actually done. We as organisations, teams and individuals have an opportunity and an obligation to close this gap. Closing this gap can often feel daunting. But the reality is that the new frontier is to ensure you have a positive impact on an environmental and social level in whatever you do, not as a side note.

That's the new reality, our new frontier and we can all make a difference. Discover how we can in fact have a lasting, positive impact on organisations, regardless of one's title or job grade. Sustainability has never been more important to our collective future. Whether we look at environmental or social sustainability, the challenges we face affect everyone's personal and professional lives.

Marieke will share some of her experiences and her passion for driving environmental and social sustainability and provide her insights into how individuals and teams can make a lasting and positive impact.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Our industry has a great opportunity and a moral obligation to drive sustainable growth
  • We all have an opportunity to make a positive impact, regardless of title or job grade
  • There are concrete things I can do to make a difference personally and professionally

This session is for you if...you want to make a difference in your organissation in order to support and drive environmental and social sustainability.

We'll explore the steps needed to grasp this new environment and how to prepare for policing in the metaverse.
