Innovation The Catalyst For Digital Transformation Success

Aetna, Delta Airlines, Suntrust Execs Talk Digital Transformation




In less than two weeks, leading IT and enterprise mobility executives will gather at the Chateau Elan, a stunning resort nestled just outside of Atlanta in the Georgia foothills, to attend the Enterprise Mobility Transformation Exchange. The two-day event – featuring an agenda packed with informative conference sessions led by the industry’s premier thought leaders, interactive Think Tank discussions, one-to-one business meetings with solution providers, and structured networking opportunities – is designed to foster idea sharing, peer-to-peer benchmarking, and the establishment of business partnerships between attendees.

The common thread uniting this exclusive group of attendees: the role of enterprise mobility as a key enabler of digital transformation. Digital transformation is reshaping how decisions are made and processes conducted in the enterprise. With the growth of mobile devices in the enterprise, the expansion of cloud, and the proliferation of smart technologies, including the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, wearables, and augmented reality, IT executives are dealing with an ever-increasing set of challenges around mobile device management, security, compliance, legacy system integration and more. The Exchange will bring together the most innovative minds in IT to collaborate on these and other top-of-mind topics.

According to Hannah Corkerry, the event’s producer, “The exponential innovation rate of mobile technology necessitates that enterprises adapt to new and emerging trends in order to remain relevant in the age of digital disruption. In this context, the competitive edge lies with the IT leader’s ability to navigate a complex web of priorities.”

Day One: Security, Apps, UEM And More

Among the list of anticipated presenters will be Mark Willis, Director, Software and Mobile Security, Aetna. Willis will discuss why it’s critical for enterprises to rethink their approach to mobile security. Traditionally, security has been treated as ancillary to the mobile software development process; Willis will explain why embedding security measures into the software development lifecycle must be an organizational imperative if enterprises hope to thwart the ongoing threats to mobile applications and devices. He’ll also elaborate on the vital role DecSecOps plays in that transformation.

Other sessions throughout the day will dive into such topics as unified endpoint management, next generation automation, app deployment, and the power of augmented and virtual reality.

Rounding out day one’s presentations will be Manoj Doshi, Vice President Engineering, New York Life Insurance, who will lead participants on New York Life Insurance’s Office 365 journey to improve productivity on mobile platforms. His session will focus on his team’s evaluation of Office 365’s systems and capabilities to ensure a seamless implementation, overcoming security concerns to protect users, and safeguarding regulatory compliance.

Day Two: Insight, Collaboration, Networking Opportunities Abound

After an evening of networking with peers, the second day of the event will kick-off with an exciting keynote presentation from Hyoun Park, CEO and Principal Analyst, Amalgam Insights. In this session, Park will guide attendees through the multi-faceted challenges associated with mobility from finance, technology, operational and service management perspectives. Each viewpoint will uncover persistent issues both in creating a robust mobility foundation and in effectively deploying disruptive new technologies such as the Internet of Things, augmented reality, and cloud services to improve business outcomes.

Participants will also have the opportunity to engage with panelists from SunTrust, Alaska Airlines, University of Alabama at Birmingham, and Delta Airlines, who will come together to facilitate a discussion titled, ”EMM, MDM and MAM: Evaluating Strategies To Effectively Manage And Secure Your Mobile Solutions”. This interactive session will explore the intersection of the three technologies, provide guidance on the best approach organizations can take, and the benefits to be realized from each methodology.

Concluding With Take-Aways

When the last session has come to a close, attendees of the Exchange will walk away with cutting-edge insight on the latest industry topics, and valuable new business connections – both of which will strengthen their ability to influence the success of their enterprise’s digital transformation efforts.

From Corkerry’s perspective, “Our carefully crafted agenda enables you to gain access to some pioneering thought leadership, while forging long-lasting business partnerships that will help you to devise, implement and monitor your enterprise mobility initiatives.”
