Would you argue if someone said Microsoft Teams is a one-stop shop for business communications? Probably not. But that might depend on how much you use your voice.

Up until last year, Microsoft was a new player in the cloud collaboration game. While the app is evolving and growing quickly, there are gaps in the offering, most notably its voice platform. But then there’s the administrator user experience, ease of access to detailed analytics, limited calling plan coverage and over eight hours downtime a year. And calling plans are expensive.

Join RingCentral and an intimate group of IT thought leaders for a discussion where we will answer:

  • To Direct Route or not to Direct Route? Plus a lively discussion on all the cons of Calling Plans.
  • What can be done to ensure your business communications meets the needs of a distributed workforce, without sacrificing the native Microsoft Teams experience?
  • How can integrations and cost reductions help users be more productive, and companies more efficient?
  • What does Microsoft Teams Direct Routing success look like in action?

In this session, our experts will take a deep dive into how retail companies are changing the game by creating integrated experiences when implementing composable ERP strategies.

Discussion topics:

  • Keeping inventory updated in real-time
  • How to integrate legacy and modern applications
  • Differences in integration platforms
  • One integration platform or multiple, which is better

Business digitization and remote work accelerated IT and increased security risks whether you were ready or not. Tech leaders must not only keep up with the demand, but also make the right choices to future-proof their IT to prevent vendor lock-in, enable Multi-Cloud, and ensure management efficacy and security. 

In this presentation, we will discuss how you can use Identity as a convergence point to address these challenges without compromising security and vendor lock-in. We will also dive into how Okta partners with strategic partners like AWS to help in your journey.

  • Why Identity is the convergence point for security today?

  • How Okta Identity helps in your digital strategy

  • How AWS and Okta work together to boost innovation and security

  • And how this translates to you

  1. Redesigning and rethinking the traditional workplace
  2. Getting technology infrastructure right
  3. Cultivating a great company culture

Key discussion points:

  • Innovative ways to create engagement virtually
  • Incentives to keep the audience active throughout the event

Challenging months lie ahead of us as lockdown and distancing measures continue to impact the way we live and work. It’s clear now that collaboration tools will be essential for much of 2021.

While technology supported organisations more than ever this past year, businesses are thinking about the challenges caused by the point solutions they hastily adopted at the start of the pandemic. We have learnt that these ‘last-minute’ disparate tools hinder productivity and lead to issues like security vulnerabilities, shadow IT and employee silos.

2020 was a year of trial and error for many marketing executives navigating the world of virtual events. Despite a strong desire from the marketing community to get back to in-person experiences, virtual events are here to stay. Furthermore, as time progresses, the value the virtual world can bring continues to increase, establishing a virtual marketing strategy as a mainstay in long-term planning.

Join SINC and a panel of leading technology industry marketing executives to learn how to create a robust virtual event strategy that will help you reach your lead generation goals, continue to build brand awareness, and build a strong online community.

As CIOs and CISOs continue to lead their organizations through digital transformations, relationships with technology providers (both long-standing and new), and the way these partnerships are formed and managed, are set to change.
 
In 2020, many organizations and technology leaders were forced to amend their roadmaps in order to combat the impact on the global pandemic. This placed a heightened focus on the need for technology providers to set aside traditional processes of trying to serve legacy goals, and instead become true advisory partners and drive strategic outcomes.
 
For technology providers, having the latest, coolest tech no longer guarantees success. As such, CIOs and CISOs alike are redefining what successful relationships with their IT providers look like.
 
Join SINC and a panel of leading IT and Security Executives as they provide insight and guidance to both End Users and Technology Vendors on how each party can create a better process to keep up with innovation, maintaining established systems and ensuring organizations of all types are equipped to deliver the technology capabilities enabling businesses to generate continued value.

Participating in and creating engaging virtual events has become a vital component for marketing executives and teams. While it may be perceived they do not provide the same level of experience as in-person gatherings, virtual events provide incredible opportunity through larger audiences and significantly reduced costs. Furthermore, the ability for attendees to participate from the comfort of their own desk means gaining access to valuable content and thought leaders has never been easier.

However, virtual event fatigue is very real and leaves marketing leaders with many challenges to overcome to ensure the best possible return on their efforts and investments.

Join SINC and leading technology industry marketing executives to learn how to create engaging, interactive virtual events and experiences to ensure high levels of interest, most importantly, high engagement throughout.

The job of the security executive is tough. Changes to the professional landscape as a result of the pandemic have presented new challenges as businesses adopt work from home policies. Executives are now being asked to produce more with less during a time of ever growing threat sophistication–to say these are unprecedented times is an understatement. Successful leaders are having to pivot, and adopting a threat-informed defense strategy is one of the best ways to do so. Threat frameworks like MITRE ATT&CK offer tremendous opportunity for you to reshape your security program and bring constant validation of effectiveness, create meaningful and real metrics to measure and benchmark performance, and model emergent threats to know where you really stand. This talk will walk you through the many use cases that can lead you down a tractable path of security optimization.

Arbitrary mandates, “cloud first” policies, and objectives to move “x” percent into cloud “must-do” pushes from your IT department can often lead to excessive cost and inefficiencies—especially right now. For CFOs and CEOs, building an optimal technology strategy requires understanding the real business objectives along with a massive commitment from your entire organization. To do it right, you need financial analysis tools that not only provide a framework for developing an efficient, secure, and successful technology strategy, but also help achieve consensus and budget for implementation.

Needless to say, 2020 has been a challenge unlike any other previously experienced for companies of all sizes. Marketing executives have been on the frontline of this challenge, having to find new, innovative ways of reaching their audiences, with field marketing effectively removed from traditional strategies and plans. Although the pandemic has placed a heightened focus on the value and needs for companies to enhance their technology infrastructure, it has also created a noise unlike any heard before, making it increasingly more difficult for technology vendors and service providers to make themselves heard and their products stand out.
 
During this live discussion, we will hear from leading technology marketing executives on their experiences, challenges, lessons learned, and how they are planning for 2021 with so much uncertainty ahead of them. 

Migrating to the cloud moves applications outside the company’s network perimeter and creates a new security paradigm. You need to rebuild your security perimeter in the cloud. According to McKinsey, “More than two-thirds of companies will take the time and invest enough to adopt native network flows using native tooling and configurations with mature full-stack DevSecOps orchestration. Integration with security-service SaaS providers and targeted compliance tooling will be used to protect the dynamic perimeter.” Want to know how?  Join visionary thought-leader, Dan Scarfe, Chief Solutions Officer at New Signature, Cognizant’s Microsoft Business Group for an engaging discussion.

Google Cloud is committed to embracing and enhancing the hybrid and multi-cloud world and has built a comprehensive portfolio of tools to support that vision.

In this presentation, we’ll provide high-level overviews of these tools as well as other supporting tools and features of Google Cloud that facilitate hybrid cloud configurations such as Migrate for Compute Engine, Transfer service for on-premise data, external replicas for CloudSQL, and very high bandwidth (100 Gbps) interconnect links. These features combined with Google’s commitment to open-source, open technology, and avoiding vendor lock-in make Google Cloud an excellent choice for building your hybrid cloud environment.

The role of the CIO has been on a steady rise for the past several years. As companies continue to evolve and the way people work continues to change, the demands from today’s global, mobile, and distributed workforce are also rapidly evolving.  We’re at a point in time where the CIO, who’s role was once limited to ensuring that IT systems were working smoothly, is now front and center to defining the digital culture of an organization with a mega-trend at play that I like to call, ‘Systems of Experience.’  This presentation will focus on the role of the CIO amidst this shifting tide and what it takes to create a digital culture to support the future of work.
