How Great Organizations Build Cultures of Excellence, Innovation and Value Creation

If culture eats strategy for breakfast, no wonder most organizational initiatives become “side dishes” and fail to meet their objectives. From safety improvement programs to high technology deployments, organizations are littered with great ideas and plans that were systematically chewed up by the jaws of culture.

In this session we will learn how great enduring organizations build cultures of excellence, innovation and value creation as their ultimate competitive advantage.

It Ain't Done 'Til It's Automated: Security at the Speed of DevOps

Companies are rapidly migrating applications and workloads to the cloud. For many this is a Software as a Service for a first option, with migration to public cloud second, and only if necessary will workloads be deployed inside of the legacy data center. This is further complicated by the desire to accelerate the development lifecycle allowing devops to drive the IT migration. InfoSec is playing catchup to the business and devops constant acceleration.

Azure governance and management

In most enterprises, deployments are occurring in an ad hoc manner, primarily driven by lack of protocol and unapproved decisions by various operators or employees. Some deployments even violate the organization's compliance obligations, such as being deployed in a manner that violates PCI DSS rules.

If you want to ensure that future deployments comply with policy and organizational requirements. In this session, walk through the processes and technologies that will keep Tailwind Trader's deployments in good standing with the help of Azure Blueprints, Azure Policy, Locks and more.

The solution is governance, and making sure you, the developers and IT Pros who are advocating cloud in your organisations understand the management needed for successful adoption is key

Whilst governance does not need tooling per se, Microsoft has a range of great tools in the Azure arsenal to help you.

In this session I’ll talk about the kinds of things that can go wrong and the simple things you can do to avoid them.

The view from the C-Suite / Key success factors for effective digital transformation

 Information technology innovation creates new opportunities every day to make more money, be more efficient, find new markets, and change existing operations dynamics. Technology advancement is happening so fast that companies are finding it hard to catch up and adapt to the latest and greatest capabilities.

Companies are currently trying to embrace digital transformation and move to the cloud; however, that journey takes years, and it is full of challenges and issues, mainly due to data integration and system compatibility. This keynote will address key elements to successfully leverage digital transformation and capture values while aligning with the overall business strategies. It will also highlights the importance of the delivery mechanism and change management to enable the digital transformation journey.

  • Improve and transform your organizations by addressing all the following factors: People, Process, Technology, Data
  • Find the right balance between strategies, delivery mechanism, and culture.
  • Embrace change but changing for the sake of change is meaningless without a defined brighter digital future that aligns with the business strategy (Set up a good strategy)
  • Develop an action-oriented mindset and adopt a customer-centric approach while leveraging proven technology (Set up a solid delivery mechanism)
  • Invest in people and utilize change management (Enable a healthy Culture)
  • Always start with Safer, then better, faster, and cheaper (maybe)

With changes in the model during training, accuracy in Inference goes down, versioning of dataset, model explain ability becomes important. This session discuss systematic approaches to take for scaling AI use cases.
