Session V:  The Machine Fights Back: AI and the Future of Cyber Defense

In 2016, we saw ‘trust attacks’ impact democracy. 350,000 US cyber defense posts stood unmanned due to a skills shortage. Ransomware attacks and the Mirai Botnet moved too fast for humans to keep up. These threats are more insidious too, exploiting IoT devices and third-party service providers and disguising themselves for an average of 208 days before detection. When it comes to protecting your organization, the days of telling the board "we've got this" are over.                    

Cyber security has turned into an arms race—machines fighting machines on the battleground of corporate networks. Catching today’s most sophisticated cyber-attacks requires finding the slightest and subtlest anomalies inside networks containing millions of constantly changing data points, where billions of events take place every day.
Artificial intelligence-based systems are now being deployed to continually assess complex business environments. Known as ‘immune system’ cyber defense, this approach is used to uncover threats that have already penetrated the network border and then automatically fight back.

Learn how to distinguish the hyperbole surrounding machine learning from proven AI technology that delivers real results for organization of all sizes – and stops attackers in their tracks.

Welcome & Introduction

In this session, Todd Watkins will explain the lessons he learned along the way in order to help you lead an ERP project. Attendees will hear some practical tips as well as things to avoid that Todd wishes he had known before leading an ERP. A range of topics will be covered such as budgeting, selecting an implementation partner, testing and scripting, working with 3rd party vendors, knowing when to go live, post go live support, and much more.

Session III:  Success Factors: Getting Cloud to Work for You

A little over 10 years ago Amazon Web Services launched with little fanfare. 5 years later Cloud technologies were still in their infancy and the idea of adopting cloud services to replace on-premise infrastructure was something to be addressed at a later date. Now is that later date. Given the maturation and success of public cloud products, we are finding more and more organizations looking for opportunities to adopt Cloud services. It’s common for companies to approach this with a lift-and-shift strategy in mind, which often ends with an organization having made little improvements and their data is both on-site and off. In these situations, we find little effort has been made to assess if cloud products are the best fit for these unique environments and even less consideration is given to the most effective rollout strategy. While we understand that Cloud products offer a convincing value proposition in terms of cost and maintenance, rushing into a solution demonstrates a myopic view of the long-term. Cloud resources are much more than inputs into a cost calculation, moving to Cloud is a long-term strategic decision that needs to be done right. Companies that invest in strong foundations are building stronger, more robust, and flexible systems that integrate easily and serve their business’s better, now and long into the future.

He is currently leading Kenway’s Cloud Strategy Practice, which puts him in a good position to comment on how the Enterprise IT environment is changing and the direction Kenway believes it is headed.


Session IV: A Framework for Success: Creating a Winning Cloud Service Portfolio
 
Cloud consumption has been steadily adopted by startups and new application developers. However, many commercial and enterprise organizations struggle to realize the same benefits in conjunction with their existing data centers and applications. In this session, you will learn how to implement a service portfolio that includes private data centers, colocation, enterprise and public cloud computing that will give you immediate successes and long-term flexibility.

Session V: The Challenges and Opportunities of Digital Transformation for the Mid Market


Statistically, IT departments spend roughly 80% of their budget on maintaining existing systems. With business executives still expecting agility and new solutions, IT must maximize the remaining 20%. Mid-market companies have the same digital transformation aspirations as large companies. Since they have smaller budgets and fewer resources to get it done, there is less room for error. Learn how emerging technologies are influencing where mid-market companies invest their IT dollars to fast-track their digital business.
