Workshop 1 – CIO Track – Is your data holding your business to ransom?
Gary Hallam, Director of Channel Business, EMEA & APAC, Delphix
One of the main aims of a CIO or technology leader is to guide the technology organisation to deliver growth, digitalisation, and efficiency for the business.
Delivering on the promises of digitalisation, cloud dynamics and hyper-scale efficiency requires effective, efficient, and practical management of data. Data mastery underpins the performance of all other aspects of business success.
But data has proven to be one of the most difficult aspects of technology to manage. In large organisations, key business information can be locked within data that is siloed, sensitive, unwieldy and time bound.
This presentation looks at the need to focus on democratising and securing data and outlines pragmatic ways of getting control of business data so that you can accelerate innovation, improve security, increase reliability, streamline operations, and save costs.
We will look at how you can:
- Simplify data access within multi-generational architectures
- Deliver data at speed by changing the data delivery paradigm
- Automate data delivery
- Empower your practitioners by arming them with data and self-service controls
As one of our larger financial services customers enthused after unleashing their data: "We saw new amounts of automation, new levels of sharing, new reports being delivered, the velocity of the kind of things that people were trying to do with the data went through the roof; it sky-rocketed, the 6 weeks to deliver data turned to 2 days, the answers are there now, whereas before we waited 3 months, we can move forwards or fail fast, we now have amazing collaboration between developers, analysts and business teams."
