A Vision of the Future –Disruption and Opportunities Ahead for Government.
Abraham Lincoln’s assertion that “The best way to predict your future is to create it” is an apt metaphor for our times as well. We are at a very important crossroad today. While technology and globalization is disrupting and turning upside down every segment of government and industry, it is also creating unimaginable opportunities for government to better serve constituents where leaders are looking ahead and shaping the future. Armed with the right knowledge, one could capitalize on these opportunities to unlock a smart and brighter future for many generations to come. Those failing to heed the call of transformation are destined for the dust heap of history - status quo is not an option. This disruption is impacting every sector of government and economy, including IT, health care, education, transportation, finance and taxation, jobs and employment, public safety, government operations, to name a few. This keynote discusses the cycle and magnitude of change taking place in this tech driven knowledge revolution and seven overarching trends that provide insights into the shape of things to come, and how to harness these forces to transform government.
Lunch Keynote Presentation: Steve Poeppe, Sr. Director for Government, Healthcare & Education of Tanium Inc.
Looking Forward To IT Tools Of The Future
As technology advanced over the past 5-10-20 years, users’ expectations changed, business processes changed, and customers’ demands changed. But IT professionals have, for years, struggled with the same out-of-date technology, which only continues to become more and more outdated. CIOs are now taking this battle into the boardroom as they work closer with COOs, CFOs and CMOs to align strategic goals, and equip their teams to meet these goals. While replacing old tools costs money, the potential to save time and recoup your entire investment is an appealing proposition, and private and public organizations are turning toward more niche, flexible tools that, unlike their incumbent legacy systems, can evolve as their business and customer demands evolve. Increased levels of automation and better, faster real-time data will continue to allow IT professionals to take on more consultant-type roles to educate their users on how to better leverage technology to improve business outcomes. Steve Poeppe, will discuss how CIOs can empower their IT teams to support further innovation and meet the challenges that come with a constantly changing business technology landscape.
