Upcoming May Branch Forum: Who's Disrupting our ICT?

Wednesday, 22 Apr 2015

You could be forgiven for tuning out when you hear the terms Digital and Disruption.  There’s barely a tech press article these days which doesn’t draw a reference to either term, yet all too often we treat it as ‘interesting' and then get on with life as we know it.

On the other hand, we see profound change: cloud, mobility, social and analytics are also growing at a massive rate. Contrast this with the fact that much of the core technology in organisations still requires our highly skilled staff to enhance and maintain it and you have a multi-speed ICT environment.

Uniquely, most ICT departments didn’t predict or have a vision for this change, yet here we are!  Not to put too finer point on it, ICT as we knew it is being disrupted - rapidly and forever!  Just to add more challenge into the equation, global studies are showing the that the ICT / business divide is widening - a picture that doesn’t equate to assured success.

Chris Stevens will bring to light the changes that are impacting the ICT department as we know it.  He will challenge your thinking on what this means for the future of the ICT department, your role within it and what this means for organisations in the coming years.  Chris will provide insights on what successful ICT leaders do and will show a blueprint for ICT to lead the next generation of business value creation.  Don’t miss this important and timely presentation.
