Synopsis and overview of the session

As 2021 sees markets begin to open up, driving revenue growth is at the forefront of the minds of business leaders who know that the potential for growth is accelerated when an organisation has a sophisticated partner ecosystem that serves to create brilliant customer experiences.

For IT leaders to be ready and to embrace new digital partnering opportunities, their digital systems must first be enabled with innovative technical capabilities that allow onboarding at scale, speed, and ease of integration.

Focus Network, in partnership with Axway, will bring together a leading group of CIOs and IT Leaders from across QLD to stay ahead of the curve by joining this open discussion to hear peer insights on embracing partner opportunities, and expert advice on overcoming the barriers to your success.

Some of the areas we will be discussing on the day will include:

  • Different ways organisations are embracing digital partnerships that harness new revenue potential
  • Addressing security, governance and policy concerns when embarking on new digital partnerships
  • The technology and solutions that enable partnering and the development of your digital ecosystem
  • Overcoming integration challenges faced when working with APIs and the impact of cloud migration
