ISG PREDICTS: A Secure Intelligent Connected Economy – what lies ahead

Organizations have been forced to work in siloes. While working on the cybersecurity and cloud strategies, they have acquired a vast array of digital assets which have not been connected to each other.
There has been no way to convert vast amounts of data emanating from critical offline assets into valuable information, integrate such information across the value-chain and associated partner ecosystems in a secure way that creates real-time value, and put actionable real-time insights at every stakeholder’s fingertips. Until Now.
The next nexus of forces – 5G, Hybrid Cloud, Edge Computing, IoT and AI are converging to form a new substrate that makes the above possible. This new digital fabric makes a Secure Intelligent Connected Economy possible. Learn from what organizations are planning in this emerging space, and the new solutions and offerings that are promising to be the building blocks of this connected future.

Security and Intelligence - Powering the Promise of SICE

Organizations stand to gain exponential business value by driving insights and intelligence from a connected ecosystem across their customers, value chains, enterprise systems and operational technology. This value acceleration can’t be delivered effectively without adopting a federated “boundaryless” information architecture underpinned by a robust security & governance strategy.

It’s imperative to effectively leverage emerging security and risk management capabilities that enable the realization of an enterprise without systemic boundaries that crimp both innovation and efficiency.

Managing the Costs and Value of Hybrid Cloud Environments through a Single Pane of Glass

Over the past five years, most organizations have focused on migrating workloads to cloud. The top driver of this cloud adoption and workload transformation was an expectation of gaining business agility at a substantially reduced cost. For many, that value proposition has not been fulfilled. While FinOps and TBM frameworks have focused on traditional IT cost management, and have adapted to include some constructs around public cloud management, the overall Hybrid Cloud Value Management challenge still remains unaddressed – and getting even more challenging by the day as more enterprises progress on their cloud journey.

In this session, we will showcase a game changing framework underpinned by an innovative Technology Value Management (TVM) platform that enables any enterprise to manage their cloud investments and ROI from an end-to-end Hybrid Cloud lens – the ability to make investments decisions and track the value derived from these investments using a single pane of glass for Private Clouds (Data Centers) to Public Clouds to shape their transformation, migration and modernization decisions.

PANEL: The Human Side of Cybersecurity: Skeptical vs. Susceptible

News making, sensational, cyberhacker nightmare stories happen often because employees clicked on something they shouldn’t have – whether through company email or social media – granting hackers extraordinary access to company systems. Cybersecurity education has taken a backseat to the cooler engineering functions or AI & ML disciplines that promise to bring in revenue or save money.
- How does the CISO prevent and mitigate people failure, not just technical failure?
- In addition to defense technologies, is there an offensive human approach?
- How do you build cyber-skepticism into the core of every employee, the enterprise DNA?
- Examples of successful COE and COP models? 
- Is it possible to rebuild the culture and employee behavioral patterns to establish security as a core value?

SICE - Bridging the Business and Technology gap

How does the secure intelligent connected enterprise scale, while being kept secure and yet fully integrated from a business perspective? Just addressing zero trust alone while important is not the whole story, what about secure and scalable cloud operations, full integration with an enterprises existing infrastructure and the holy grail end to end digital transformation? Our panel will discuss this challenge and how to focus on security while continuing to grow at scale.  
The premise of our session is that improving a secure, intelligent, connected enterprise with zero trust concepts is crucial and important foundational piece of the puzzle but don’t forget the rest, for example is it DevSecOps that you need or is secure DevOps? Or while Multi-cloud is your reality if your existing cloud security and infrastructure isn’t ready or worse you believe that you outsourced it, then Houston we have a problem.
