    Synopsis and overview of the session

    There has been an acceleration of the consumerisation of the enterprise.  Employees expect seamless, connected experiences across devices and apps from the moment they start their day – whether from home, at a cafe or in an office.  To meet these expectations while protecting their IP, modern businesses will have to reimagine the ways they architect, implement and use technology to find the balance between security and experience.Focus Network, in partnership with Okta will uncover the answers to current and common challenges facing organisations:

    • How can organisations boost employee productivity & engagement via a modern workforce identity platform.
    • What are the technology expectations of today’s professionals, and what impact does this have on employee mobility and retention?
    • What are the best practices for organisations to leverage modern technologies to help scale and secure their infrastructure to meet employee expectations?
