Delivering Business Outcomes (in the New Era) with Confidence

As we enter into the new post-pandemic era, we continue to be buffeted by headwinds of doom and gloom. Tech Leaders oftentimes face challenges from Business Stakeholders to support growth strategies with reduced resources, and to protect digital assets from increasing cyber threats. At the same time, there are tailwinds around and across this region that we can catch to propel our vessel if we know when and how to set sail.

How can we ride on these tailwinds to deliver business outcomes with confidence?

Protecting the Most Valuable Assets

The "Digital First" business strategy is where technology changes business models and drives business. Asia Pacific is experiencing significant growth in digital products, services, channels, and digitally-driven operational improvements. However, businesses face challenges in enabling employees to access critical tools for delivering excellent customer experiences, as well as addressing issues around skills shortages, supply-chain concerns, and cybersecurity threats. Even digitally transformed organizations are still vulnerable to data threats. Therefore, ensuring data availability is critical to resilience strategies. This session will explore the impact of data on business success, and types of data threats, and propose a fresh approach to data security strategies.

Digital Transformation Accelerates Your Innovation

Transforming your data to keep up with the modern world is no easy task. With growing data footprints, increased risk of cyberattacks, and widening skill shortages, today's businesses need solutions that give them the flexibility to manage ongoing change and protect their data. Join us as we discuss how we could securely accelerate digital transformation and your move to the cloud, and ensure that your investments are maximized.

Defending Against Ransomware

While they may be inevitable, breaches, leaks, and losses don’t have to be disasters. Beyond simply adhering to zero trust principles and hoping for the best, the ultimate solution can reduce costs for your organization and have the ability to rapidly recover your data. During the panel, we will discuss what a good cybersecurity practice is, and how a zero-trust strategy, a new business-critical approach to fighting ransomware, can help to keep your data safe and your company out of the headlines

Innovation Roadmap

Learn about the future of our Intelligent Data Services and find out how we plan to address data management challenges we hear about from our customers – including multi-cloud resilience, security, and automation – and let us know what you think.
