The Live Enterprise

This year, we will explore the many possibilities of nurturing the Live Enterprise – organizations that intuitively adapt to the shifting business environment with frequent, quick-paced changes like living creatures do. We will discuss and debate how automation, data and algorithms can come together to make this ever-evolving organization a reality.

Infosys CEO Keynote: Building the Live Enterprise

The keynote address will delve into the most exciting opportunity for the enterprise to reinvent itself —to be a Live Enterprise. Build the ability to adapt and respond to change continuously and intelligently, drive deeply differentiated experiences as a natural consequence of this evolution, and explore pioneering business models to monetize it all. The session will also outline the digital navigation framework - including the digital capabilities, operating model, and talent – enterprises can leverage to get there. Reference Hyper-productivity as a 'hook' for the session tomorrow - it's a major hook for all delegates as everyone needs to do more with less.

A Panel Discussion with Enterprise Business Partners: Driving Continuous Change in the Digital Era

Automation, data, and algorithms are coming together, across the organization, to redefine the scope and mandate of functions. Today, the CIO is being equally partnered by leaders of business functions – the CMO, the CFO, the CHRO - to equip the enterprise to effectively tackle continuous change, make more accurate data-driven decisions and to do it all with minimal human intervention. This session brings together business leaders who are already delivering on this agenda and making sure digital delivers more for the enterprise.

Fireside Chat with Guest CISOs: New Posture for Cybersecurity in a Real-time World

Digitization has massively expanded the scope of security strategy and operations. The stand-alone point solutions-approach is inadequate to protect against evolving threats and an expanding attack surface. CISOs must find ways to manage more than ‘reactive security’ and drive ‘holistic resilience.’ The need is to embed security into the fabric of the enterprise, while building resilience and scale into security programs. This discussion will take a hard, unflinching look at reality, and show us how to overhaul cyber-risk management.
