Chris HockingsCustomers’ needs are constantly changing, and to meet them a business needs to keep evolving as well. A successful transformation isn’t a one-off event – it’s an ongoing process of improvement, reinvention and innovation.

The role of CIOs and other senior IT leaders is evolving too. They’re no longer just the technology leader in an organisation – they’re an agent of change. To reimagine what’s possible, they need to understand how new technologies like AI, cloud, cybersecurity and IoT can help create and capture markets, produce efficiencies and drive innovation.

That’s why IBM is presenting the “State of Perpetual Evolution” at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2018. We’ll be showcasing the capabilities of IBM Cloud, Security, Watson and Blockchain, and be demonstrating how they can power your digital transformation and ongoing reinvention.

Success in the Digital Age: A Perpetual Evolution

Tuesday, 30 October, 2018 / 11:45 AM – 12:30 PM

Reports indicate that only 8% of companies are seeing results from their digital transformations. So what separates success from failure, and what are the successful companies doing differently?

With quantum computing threatening to upend Moore’s Law*, what does it take to enable continuous innovation and succeed in these times of perpetual evolution?

At our “Solution Provider Session” at Gartner Symposium, these are the kinds of questions we can answer for you. Stop by and meet some of our leading Australian technology leaders who will share their insights, experiences and learnings for successful transformation in the digital era.

The Winners Table: Creating an Agile Engine for Growth with Hybrid Cloud

Thursday, 01 November, 2018 / 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Moving with urgency is critical to modernising and rationalising IT for survival. In this digital age IT is on the front line, and the first to see competitive threats.

How do you create an agile engine for growth with multi-cloud architectures, bringing people and processes together to manage the new challenges of a successful platform? And how do you balance that with providing the freedom to access the latest technologies and data from any source?

What it comes down to is how do you win. Join our Winners Table session to learn how the right hybrid cloud strategy and practices can put you on top and keep you there.

The Next Evolution in Cyber Security: Changing the way People Think

Wednesday, 31 October, 2018 / 12:30 PM – 12:50 PM

Technologies like cloud, mobile and social computing offer convenient and ubiquitous access to information. But they also blur the lines between professional and personal identities, which can increase risk. This highlights the need for safe computing practices and the exercise of good judgment.

Join me at the ITxpo Stage to understand why bringing innovation into the organisation also means engaging people in a way that increases trust and security.

Progress is impossible without change. Bring us your toughest challenges and let’s solve tomorrow together.

You can book your place at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2018 today.

*Moore’s law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years.
