2018 has scarcely begun and already Cyber Security is dominating the headlines: mass scale security vulnerabilities have been revealed across three of the world’s largest chipset manufacturers, compromising millions of systems across the globe. Against an ever-changing backdrop of threats, there has never been a more challenging environment for information security personnel to protect their business.

Now in its 5th year, the conference has established itself as the largest annual Digital Energy summit in the country: the event brings together senior IT, Digital and business leaders, providing a unique forum for knowledge exchange, discussion and high-level networking. The programme will explore the use of Information Technology in driving tangible outcomes across the organisation, looking at key trends and providing practical insight from an array of industry leaders.
The potential of IoT is staggering: the transition to a vast network of connected devices, data sharing, AI and automation is for many what defined the real vision of the internet. But while the rise of IoT into the popular lexicon has been accompanied by massive hype, huge economic promise and an ever-expanding number of connect devices; practical implementation and tangible outcomes have been lacking.
This conference will bring together technologists from industry, academia and government to explore the evolution of the Internet of Things. The programme will contextualise IoT within the current technology landscape, looking at key trends, industry permeation and real world progress – whilst also considering some of the key barriers to adoption.
IT is evolving: the role of Information Technology within the organisation has fundamentally changed, drawn from a background support function into a crucial centre of innovation, value creation and competitive edge. More than ever before, the success and failure of the organisation is being defined by its technological ability.
Amidst this transition, the dynamics of the IT industry are also changing: there has been a substantial shift to outsourced models, from storage and CRM to critical infrastructure and disaster recovery. This transition to software orientated models and XaaS is redefining the role, with much greater emphasis on service agreements, outsourcing and vendor management.
This conference will contextualise the evolution of IT, examining the changing role of technology within the business and the inherent implications for IT personnel. The event is geared for senior IT, business and finance leaders, providing a unique forum for knowledge exchange, discussion and high-level networking.
