IT - CxO Events

We'll look at how many organizations, like yours, are accelerating cloud migration efforts. And how your success depends upon how well you focus on maintaining core business processes that operate on your key systems.


Join us for a virtual, roundtable discussion to learn how top CIOs are accelerating cloud deployment and mitigating risk for business-critical systems.

We'll look at how many organizations, like yours, are accelerating cloud migration efforts. And how your success depends upon how well you focus on maintaining core business processes that operate on your key systems. Effective transitions often depend upon how well you migrate databases - such as Oracle or SQL Server - so they operate safely and efficiently in cloud environments. While the cost and ROI benefits of migrating to the cloud have been established, the trick is how to do so successfully.

During this hour-long, interactive session, you'll discuss the following topics amongst fellow IT leaders and experts:

  • Exploring common use cases that point to the value of accelerating cloud adoption

  • Incorporating best practices in database deployment, licensing, and management as you migrate to the cloud

  • Determining what you should keep in your legacy environment, and what you should migrate

  • Measuring ROI and TCO before, during, and after migration

  • Mitigating additional risks - workforce readiness, cloud culture, vendor licensing, and overall IT security

CIO: How to Create a Modern Culture of Data (Nov. 16th)
Monday, November 16th, 2020: 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Join us to uncover the benefits of technology paired with the right organizational culture.


As IT leaders anticipate a new set of opportunities in 2021-one truth becomes abundantly clear: the faster organizations can learn from the data within and around them, the faster they can adapt. But investing in digital tools, advanced analytics and more is not sufficient to become data-driven. Technology, twinned with the right culture, will help employees uncover their own insights-and move quickly and decisively to adapt to changing markets and customers requirements.

Topics covered specifically during this virtual roundtable include:

  • Effective data platforms: cloud modernization and open systems.
  • Turbo-charging your data: analytics, AI, and machine learning.
  • Responsible data management: ethics, privacy, security, and compliance.
  • The C-suite: who is the data champion in your organization?
  • The modern workforce: data literacy, insight, and new approaches to day-to-day working.

Hear top CIOs discuss IT, the cloud, your customer, and the future of brick-and-mortar


In most sectors and industries, organizations today are confronting a new reality. Whether you run IT in retail, government, education, healthcare-or dozens of other sectors-you now must deliver products and services to customers, consumers, patients, students, and citizens without using physical storefronts or locations.

That changes the equation not only in terms of fulfillment, but also marketing, messaging, customer service, and customer retention. The key is to securely expand your digital channels of communication, requiring greater integration of cloud-based data and processes. These changes not only affect the customer journey, but also the digital experience of employees who work with customers.

In our interactive, one-hour discussion, we'll tackle the following issues:

  • How to replicate brick and mortar experiences in marketing, sales, and customer service.
  • The challenge of fulfillment: product and service delivery as your market evolves and your business adapts.
  • Lessons from industry use cases: retail, education, healthcare, financial services, government, and more.
  • All digital, all (most) of the time: The new buyer's journey and the employee experience.
