CIO: The Future of Application Development: Hybrid Platforms, LOB Involved, DevSecOps Guardrails (June 14th)
Monday, June 14th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
That doesn't absolve IT of two core guardian and support functions: to help the business in increasingly on-prem / cloud hybrid environments and to provide proper agile app dev governance with solid DevSecOps methodologies. The challenge becomes: finding the best way to 'modernize' your organization's approach to application development.

On June 14, join CIO contributing editor Charles Pelton and subject-matter experts from our sponsors, Insight Enterprises, for a one-hour discussion: The Future of Application Development: Hybrid Platforms, LOB Involved, DevSecOps Guardrails.

CIO: Approaches to Unlock the Power of AI (June 14th)
Monday, June 14th, 2021: 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Artificial Intelligence (AI) offers the potential to radically change how businesses and IT organizations operate, as huge amounts of data can now be distilled and analyzed in a scale humans cannot duplicate. All this data and information provides unprecedented visibility into the organization and its operations, enabling management and employees to make optimal decisions. The ability to effectively use AI to deliver a competitive edge may spell the difference between success and failure.

CIO's Future of Cloud and Digital Infrastructure Summit (June 15-17)
Tuesday, June 15th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Thursday June 17th
As organizations shift more customer experience applications and code to clouds, they're also leveraging them to automate operations and innovate at the edge. According to IDC, 75% of enterprises recognize the benefits of as-a-service consumption, thereby tripling the demand for on-premise infrastructure delivered by flexible, as-a-service solutions. And unlike any time before, the world's appetite for cloud-enabled business transformation continues to accelerate.

CIO, the world's leading source of information on business, technology and leadership, presents a summit for chief information officers and data officers. Join us and experience three days of interactive content, valuable conversation with peers, solution providers, and leading CIOs to understand how they're aligning their organizations' cloud strategies to business priorities and opportunities.

CSO: Delivering Secure Work Environments to Your Workforce - Wherever They Are (June 16th)
Wednesday, June 16th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
We'll discuss how while businesses are still trying to map-out what their new work models will look like, they face significant technological hurdles in delivering secured work environments. Those challenges are complicated by what is likely to be a workforce operating in a myriad of diverse environments, with many transiting from office to home to travel.

However you decide to structure the new workplace, your workforce will continue to demand greater consistency in the delivery of their digital workspaces - regardless of how, or from where they are accessing them. To meet escalating productivity demands, while at the same time defending your organization's digital assets, many are turning to SASE delivery models and a Zero Trust approach to security.

Join us for this roundtable discussion with CSO's Contributing Editor, Bob Bragdon, along with Kurt Roemer, Chief Security Strategist at Citrix, as we collectively share experiences and leading practices for addressing these challenges across your organization.

CIO: How AI is Poised to Revolutionize IT Operations and Development (June 16th)
Wednesday, June 16th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
As the pace of change in business accelerates, IT operations are becoming more complex. Operations teams simultaneously must operate within complex technical environments; manage expansion-and location-of heterogeneous data, and navigate security risks.

That's why so many enterprises now look to artificial intelligence to drive value with a more automated approach to IT operations. The key is to build a flexible DevSecOps culture that's delivered through ChatOps, social coding, and an AI-driven approach to IT operations that spans modern hybrid cloud landscapes.

CSO: Choosing the Right AI-powered Document Processing Solution (June 17th)
Thursday, June 17th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Industries such as healthcare, financial services, telecom and manufacturing as well as business functions (supply chain, finance, HR) are examples of document-intensive domains that generate piles of hard-to-handle unstructured records, making it difficult for organizations to achieve operational excellence and streamline business processes. Document types in these industries represent different use cases that require a tailored approach to achieve seamless automation at scale. These documents include invoices, contracts, purchase orders, insurance claims, patient records, and medical images with handwritten clinical notes.

What CSPs Must Do to Deliver a Better Technical Partnership for Technology Companies
Tuesday, June 22nd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Many technology providers drive substantial benefits from leveraging foundational or complementary technologies from their cloud service provider (CSP). In many cases, this leverage is necessary to bring a completed solution to the market in a timely and competitive fashion. As the technology landscape has changed, and there is a need to create solutions differently, what a CSP must provide needs to evolve.

Join CIO contributing editor Aaron Goldberg, and subject-matter experts from our roundtable sponsor, IBM, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable. We'll discuss and share ideas about what the most important new technology, platform, and foundational components should be, how they should be delivered, and what is next.

DeFi vs CeFi Cryptocurrency: A Programmers Perspective by Joe Homnick, CPA
Thursday, June 17th, 2021: 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
online

There is an interesting competition and interaction between decentralized finance (DeFi) and centralized finance (CeFi) currently occurring in the cryptocurrency industry.

In this session we will look at, from a software developer perspective, how CeFi and DeFi are similar and different. DeFi and CeFi share similarities in the sense that they both involve the same financial services and promote the adoption of decentralized ledger technologies (DLTs). However, several significant differences split DeFi and CeFi into two different worlds. We will drill into how both CeFi and DeFi are implemented differently regarding Decentralized Apps (DAPP), Controllability, Risk and Profitability.

Crossing the AI Valley: Deploying and Monitoring Models in Production at Scale
Thursday, June 24th, 2021: 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
online

It's happened again. You built another AI model that will never see the light of day because it won't make it past the AI 'valley of death' - the crossover of model development to model deployment across your enterprise. The handoff between data science and engineering teams is fraught with friction, outstanding questions around governance and accountability, and who is responsible for different parts of the pipeline and process.

Even worse? The patchwork approach when building an AI pipeline leaves many organizations open to risks because of a lack of a holistic approach to security and monitoring.

Join us to learn about approaches and solutions for configuring a ModelOps pipeline that's right for your organization. You'll discover why it's never too early to plan for operationalization of models, regardless of whether your organization has 1, 10, 100, or 1,000 models in production.

Scrum Master's Super Power of Observation in Virtual Teams
Wednesday, June 16th, 2021: 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Scrum masters rely on observational skills, but does that mean we only use vision? What happens when we are all remote? Can we leverage other senses to 'observe' how teams are surviving (or thriving)? We may not be able to sit together with our team for a long time and it may never be the same due to the long term effects of the coronavirus. What skills might we adapt or create for virtual teams? And, how can we still reflect back the observations so the team can decide how to improve?

Fear Not: What to Do When the World of Work is Scary
Wednesday, June 16th, 2021: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
online

Fear Not: What to Do When the World of Work is Scary - The world of work can be a scary place. From facing the status quo perils to changing the ways we work, to being engulfed by volatility, we often have good reasons to be afraid. And, negative emotions often breed other negative emotions. What if we could muster up the courage to face our fears head on? What if we logically evaluated inaction? What could open up? What would be possible? Who would we be? What would we accomplish?

In this workshop, we learn a healthier way to cope with our workplace fears: by tackling them first, before we do anything else.

Join us for this preview presentation of Laisa's workshop that will be part of this year's annual Agile 2021 conference.
