CIO's Future of Cloud and Digital Infrastructure Summit (June 15-17)
Tuesday, June 15th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Thursday June 17th
As organizations shift more customer experience applications and code to clouds, they're also leveraging them to automate operations and innovate at the edge. According to IDC, 75% of enterprises recognize the benefits of as-a-service consumption, thereby tripling the demand for on-premise infrastructure delivered by flexible, as-a-service solutions. And unlike any time before, the world's appetite for cloud-enabled business transformation continues to accelerate.

CIO, the world's leading source of information on business, technology and leadership, presents a summit for chief information officers and data officers. Join us and experience three days of interactive content, valuable conversation with peers, solution providers, and leading CIOs to understand how they're aligning their organizations' cloud strategies to business priorities and opportunities. You'll learn how ubiquitous cloud strategies aren't just an aspiration, and ways they can grow your business while improving efficiency across business operations.

CSO: Delivering Secure Work Environments to Your Workforce - Wherever They Are (June 16th)
Wednesday, June 16th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
We'll discuss how while businesses are still trying to map-out what their new work models will look like, they face significant technological hurdles in delivering secured work environments. Those challenges are complicated by what is likely to be a workforce operating in a myriad of diverse environments, with many transiting from office to home to travel.

However you decide to structure the new workplace, your workforce will continue to demand greater consistency in the delivery of their digital workspaces - regardless of how, or from where they are accessing them. To meet escalating productivity demands, while at the same time defending your organization's digital assets, many are turning to SASE delivery models and a Zero Trust approach to security.

Join us for this roundtable discussion with CSO's Contributing Editor, Bob Bragdon, along with Kurt Roemer, Chief Security Strategist at Citrix, as we collectively share experiences and leading practices for addressing these challenges across your organization.

Industries such as healthcare, financial services, telecom and manufacturing as well as business functions (supply chain, finance, HR) are examples of document-intensive domains that generate piles of hard-to-handle unstructured records, making it difficult for organizations to achieve operational excellence and streamline business processes. Document types in these industries represent different use cases that require a tailored approach to achieve seamless automation at scale.

DeFi vs CeFi Cryptocurrency: A Programmers Perspective by Joe Homnick, CPA
Thursday, June 17th, 2021: 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
online

There is an interesting competition and interaction between decentralized finance (DeFi) and centralized finance (CeFi) currently occurring in the cryptocurrency industry. There is also a hybrid environment called CeDeFi.

In this session we will look at, from a software developer perspective, how CeFi and DeFi are similar and different. DeFi and CeFi share similarities in the sense that they both involve the same financial services and promote the adoption of decentralized ledger technologies (DLTs). However, several significant differences split DeFi and CeFi into two different worlds. We will drill into how both CeFi and DeFi are implemented differently regarding Decentralized Apps (DAPP), Controllability, Risk and Profitability.

The convergence of marketing, sales, and technology is rapidly converging, as is the number of marketing channels and ways to reach buyers.

Scrum Master's Super Power of Observation in Virtual Teams
Wednesday, June 16th, 2021: 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Scrum masters rely on observational skills, but does that mean we only use vision? What happens when we are all remote?

We may not be able to sit together with our team for a long time and it may never be the same due to the long term effects of the coronavirus. What skills might we adapt or create for virtual teams? And, how can we still reflect back the observations so the team can decide how to improve?

Fear Not: What to Do When the World of Work is Scary
Wednesday, June 16th, 2021: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
online

Fear Not: What to Do When the World of Work is Scary - The world of work can be a scary place. From facing the status quo perils to changing the ways we work, to being engulfed by volatility, we often have good reasons to be afraid. And, negative emotions often breed other negative emotions. What if we could muster up the courage to face our fears head on? What if we logically evaluated inaction? What could open up? What would be possible? Who would we be? What would we accomplish?

In this workshop, we learn a healthier way to cope with our workplace fears: by tackling them first, before we do anything else.

Join us for this preview presentation of Laisa's workshop that will be part of this year's annual Agile 2021 conference.

Delivering Faster Insights: The Hybrid Cloud Data Warehouse
Thursday, June 10th, 2021: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
online

The adoption of cloud data warehousing is no longer seen as teetering on the bleeding edge of technology; a growing number of organizations are already using a cloud data warehouse or cloud data lake to support enterprise business intelligence, reporting, and dashboards. Businesses that migrate to the cloud still face challenges that complicate their ability to leverage cloud-based resources. Although conventional wisdom promotes the cost-effectiveness of the cloud, ungoverned operations allow data storage, egress, and computing resource costs to spiral out of control. Cost management is a common challenge, plus some organizations remain concerned about adequate data protections.

IoT Skimmer: Energy Market Manipulation through High-Wattage IoT Botnets
Wednesday, June 16th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
online

Tohid Shekhari, and Professor Raheem Beyah of the Georgia Institute of Technology, share their research showing how an "IoT Skimmer" - a massive botnet consisting of thousands of connected high-wattage IoT devices and appliances, such as connected refrigerators, air conditioners and heaters, could cause sufficient demand-side power fluctuations to influence energy prices and create financial damage by targeting utility firms.

Their research found that an increase or decrease of only 1% of power consumption is sufficient to manipulate prices and would be very difficult to detect. Malicious actors to whom these tactics could appeal include competitive companies seeking to financially damage another utility, nation-states wanting to cause economic disruption, and financial market profiteers.
