In the wake of the global pandemic, organizations increasingly are focused on business resiliency and overall agility. As a result, they're looking to cut costs and modernize their IT and business processes. The goals are three-fold: to reduce costs quickly, improve IT resilience, and bolster overall agility. To transform at speed and scale, each enterprise will need to overcome financial, technology, security, regulatory, and organizational barriers.

Senior IT managers are invited to join CIO contributing editor Charles Pelton and subject matter experts from our virtual roundtable sponsors, AWS and Wipro, for a private one-hour discussion.

  • An intimate, gathering of senior IT leaders, from diverse industries, all grappling with similar issues.
  • A secure, private conversation open only to a carefully vetted group (no recording, no playback).

Topics covered specifically during this virtual roundtable include:

  • Business resiliency and the cloud transformation business case.
  • Opportunity from impediment: Best practices to accelerate transformation at scale.
  • Security, governance, and regulatory 'must do's'.
  • Overcoming the skills and organizational inertia gaps.
  • From migration to operationalization: the transformed enterprise in action.

CIO: Modernizing Your SAP Platform: Innovation, Cloud Adoption and the Intelligent Enterprise (Oct. 29th)
Thursday, October 29th, 2020: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST
CIO contributing editor Charles Pelton, and experts from our roundtable sponsors, AWS and Tata Consultancy Services, discuss how in today's business environment organizations must build and maintain IT ecosystems that promote innovation and agility. For many enterprises, this means accelerating their cloud adoption plans. What's the value for companies invested in SAP applications when they modernize through cloud adoption? How do they do it? And, most importantly, what are the links between SAP, the cloud, and the intelligent enterprise?

During our one-hour interactive session, you'll discuss the following topics amongst fellow IT thought leaders:

  • Cost savings and agility: exploring business case examples for SAP cloud transformation.

  • The innovation imperative: building a future ready and extensible platform that can leverage data analytics, AI, and machine learning.

  • Choosing the right cloud approach: public vs private vs hybrid, integration and mitigating risks.

  • Building the right timetable: Journey to the cloud and SAP S/4HANA.

(CS)2AI ONLINE: Symposium on Cyber Security in Health Care Systems
Thursday, October 29th, 2020: 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM
online

For Cyber Security Awareness Month we have a very special event - our first symposium! The (CS)2AI team has put together a half day of content from world-recognized expert speakers.

Sign up now to attend the parts you can

Few areas of modern technology could be argued to be as clearly linked to the preservation and improvement of human lives as medical devices and health care systems. Ongoing digitization and networking trends have exposed these to the same vulnerabilities long familiar from traditional IT and OT environments. From ransomware shutting down hospitals to hacking embedded pacemakers and insulin pumps, having people's lives at risk sets the bar all the way up for defenders of health care cyber security.

Please join us for this free event as leaders in clinical medicine, security research, medical device manufacturing and public policy gather to discuss recent developments in health care cyber security.
