Opening Keynote Presentation – One Transformation – 3 Journeys

Frederic Ducros, Chief Transformation Officer, AirAsia Group (outgoing) & Director, transform.ng / ng.li
In this session we will explore 3 journeys necessary for a deep and lasting transformation:

1. Transformation from a vision in one head, to many visions in many heads, to a shared vision in all heads - How exploring and confronting with reality and others views, through experiments and open spaces, may help refine and realise a strategy, especially when entering new spaces.

2. Transformation from the work of one hand to work in all hands - How getting the basics right, the way we run and approach processes, projects and products will help you get out of your own way, and drive real innovation and transformation.

3. Transformation in all hearts - How shifting from 'bringing change to people' to 'bringing change with people' then 'bringing change through people' will help you adopt a better role for Digital, IT and Transformation Office heads and teams.

Keynote Presentation – There’s a better way to work together than email

Arturo Arrarte, Head of Growth for APAC, Slack Brian D'souza, Solution Engineer, APAC, Slack
As leaders, we acknowledge the fundamental challenge common to all organisations is one of coordination: the creation and maintenance of alignment over time. Email is the default coordinating point for communications and information, but inside a company it works so poorly.
Slack offers a new choice, a better way to work together, by replacing email inside your company.
Join Arturo Arrarte, Head of Growth in APAC at Slack, as he demonstrates how Slack solves the fundamental challenge of coordinating and aligning teams by moving from email to a collaboration tool.  Arturo will demonstrate how to:
  • Improve alignment with team-first channel based communication
  • Maximise the ROI of your existing software by integrating apps into Slack
  • Improve employee engagement and productivity

Sarat, Mohanty, Head, Global Trade Finance Client Implementation, Standard Chartered
Whilst digital disruption is moving in a much faster pace externally, internal disruption within the organisation is also becoming a sought-after skill for future survival within the organisation. Technology function that owned and led the digital space for the last 4-5 decades, will have to disrupt itself in the coming years. How will technology function lead the way internally by not losing its pole position when it comes to digitisation. A perspective & discussion on how the future technology function will thrive in the age of digital disruption that is happening internally.

Workshop – BP’s Digital Transformation Journey: Preparing Ourselves for the Next Generation

Kurt Bergmans, Head of Global IT Service Operations, BP PLC

Our industry is changing faster than at any time in our lifetime. New digital business models are the principal reason why over half of the names of companies on the Fortune 500 have disappeared since the year 2000; and yet, we are only at the beginning of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. Successful companies recognise the opportunity to do things differently.

In this case study Kurt will share Vision 2020, which defines the identity, purpose and ambition of BP’s global IT organisation to modernise IT and be at the heart of BP’s Digital Transformation.

We are currently on a journey to transform our processes, tools and most importantly our people to stay relevant and become more agile in an environment where change is constant and predictability a thing of the past.

Roundtable discussion – Cybersecurity in a Multi-Cloud World

Andrew Milroy, Head of Advisory Services APAC, OVUM

This session will discuss the cybersecurity challenges posed by multi-cloud environments. Commonly, enterprises have cybersecurity solutions for individual clouds, but often fail to take a connected and holistic approach to cybersecurity. Multi-cloud environments require greater visibility of technology assets, particularly data moving between.

Workshop – The CIO Role in a Post-Digital World

Arvind Mathur, Chief Information Officer, Prudential

CIOs have historically played a translator and an insulator role - understanding what the business really needs and protecting them from the complexities of technology. Will this still be needed when business leaders are digital natives, and have a comfort and command on technologies that impact their business? What should CIOs do TODAY to drive this change in their business leaders and in themselves to continue to be relevant in the Post-Digital future.

Closing Keynote Presentation – Risk Management in the Digital Era

Roshan Kapoor, Senior Vice President – IT, Olam International Limited

Enterprise risk landscape is changing at a rapid pace. Trade-wars emanating from backlash against free-trade and globalization, uncertainty surrounding political leadership at national and global stage, growing terrorism threats, heightened cyber-security risks coupled with rapid speed of disruptive innovations and/or technologies are some of the key drivers of uncertainty which impact global business outlook. Corporations in all industries and countries are subjected to this increasingly risky global landscape. Identification and investment in right digital technologies are essential for organizations to survive and thrive in this uncertain scenario.

During his presentation, Roshan Kapoor will discuss about key digital technology trends which can be considered by organizations for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of business operational and financial risk management.
