The Future of the CIO in the Coming Digital Economy

As more businesses undergo a digital transformation, and as those digital transformations become more ingrained into organizational culture, "Digital" becomes not something unique and different from the business, but a core component of every aspect of the business. As this shift occurs, IT itself faces the very real possibility of no longer being something unique from the business, but instead a component of every aspect of the business. In this world, what role then exists for the CIO? Two clear paths are presenting themselves - one leads to a focus on infrastructure and integration, to keeping the lights on for the digital innovators, while the other leads to information and innovation itself. Knowing which path to choose, how to choose it, and how to see it through will be one of the greatest challenges CIOs of this era will face.

Takeaways:

  • Change is, if not already here, certainly coming and CIOs who don't prepare for the change may not like the results when it arrives
  • Digital transformation is all about connecting enterprise systems to information technology to drive productivity and performance improvements
  • Be prepared to tackle the tasks that no-one wants to do, but everyone needs done; establish relevance to cultivate importance

Executive Visions

Facilitating Technology-Enabled Business Transformation

The role of the modern IT Executive is more complex than it has ever been before, not just because the technology landscape has become more complex, but also because increasingly IT execs have had to become a business-focused executive, not just a technologist. Long have we talked about the CIO and CISO getting a seat at the table but modern businesses are now demanding that their technology impresario join them and leverage his deep and rich technical acumen to allow the organization as a whole to better position itself for market-place success. To be successful, CxOs need to invest in themselves, in their personnel, and in the right technologies to allow them to position the IT department to proactively address business needs as an innovator and driver, rather than order-taker and enabler.

Takeaways:

  • IT leadership can no longer be simply technology focused, but must instead take their visibility into business process and become business focused
  • A broader business-focus does not preclude maintaining technology excellence however and indeed may demand more of it than ever before
  • Success for CxOs will be measured not in how they can enable enterprise decisions, but in how they can drive growth

Thought Leadership

Secure, Simplify and Transform to a Cloud-Enabled Enterprise

Progressive companies are leveraging cloud, a powerful business enabler, to transform their business and make it more competitive. But cloud and mobility significantly impacts the current IT infrastructure - security, network traffic flow, applications, user experience and cost. As CIOs and CISOs embrace this transformation, they look for opportunities to exchange ideas with their peers who have gone through this journey.  

At this session, Larry Biagini, a visionary IT and security leader, will share his experience of leading the massive network, security and datacenter application transformation that he managed across all business units of GE. 

Example topics will include: 

  • How to transform your hub & spoke network into a cloud-enabled network 
  • How to transform datacenter applications to a SaaS, AWS and Azure environment 
  • New security paradigm for the new world of cloud 
  • Changing role of IT execs 
  • Lessons learned

Think Tank

Technology Implications for Patient Engagement

There is a growing body of evidence that indicates that patients that are actively engaged in their treatment and care receive better care, are healthier, and ultimately cost less to care for. As a result, driving patient activation and patient engagement is an essential goal for healthcare professionals and increasingly they are looking to the IT department and the CIO to if not drive, at least facilitate this engagement. Whether through the use of mobile focused platforms, social media channels, or other technology tools healthcare CIOs are increasingly being put in the position to tackle the issue of how to increase patient engagement and those that are blazing a successful trail are creating quick wins for their organizations and should be emulated.

Takeaways:

  • Patient engagement is an important factor in improved healthcare and reduced cost, two essential factors for long term health provider survival
  • Driving patient engagement is hard to do regardless of the benefits for either patient or provider
  • A technology focused society must rely on technology-based solutions to drive increased engagement

Think Tank

Building Dynamic Security Teams

There's no other way to say it than bluntly; Information Security is a white-hot field within Information Technology as a whole " over the last dozen years it has gone from after-thought, to scapegoat, to critical enterprise success factor. As a result, the need for capable and qualified Information Security specialists, whether front-line Analysts, mid-level Managers, or top level CISOs is at an all time high, but personnel and skills availability is sinking to an all-time (at least in terms of supply and demand ratio) low. There simply isn't enough expertise in existence to go around, or enough education occurring to create it. In this environment, senior Information Security leaders have to get creative in their pursuit of the people, performance, and passion necessary to address this capability shortfall.

Takeaways:

  • Learn how to build grass-roots programs that cultivate a farm full of potential security experts through internal and collaborative programs
  • Find out how to leverage key organizational traits to generate buzz and interest where none existed before
  • Understand the relevance of certs vs. experience and how to evaluate and validate the value of candidates

Learning Design 3.0 - Learning Through Collaboration at Cleveland Clinic

The healthcare workplace in general is very "siloed" and learning is highly structured, formal and event based. Very little has been done to support the continuum of learning for our leaders and caregivers. Cleveland Clinic in partnership with consultants from Thrive at Work have developed a strategy that incorporates learning with social collaboration (using Jive) in the workplace. While in its infancy, this approach incorporates three main collaboration strategic themes and a new framework for Learning Design.

Collaboration Strategies: 

  • How do we learn faster
  • How do we work smarter 
  • How do we drive innovation 

Learning Design Framework (by learner competency):

  • Structured learning 
  • Just-in-time 
  • Peer/Leader/Expert enabled 

We are currently in the process of implementing this strategy through the development of a social learning portal, communities of practice and a leadership interactive intranet. 

Takeaways: 

  • Learn how Cleveland Clinic is using collaboration as the basis of their Learning 3.0 framework to ultimately shift the culture and create a more agile workplace 
  • Learn about how sociology is being used as part of the community design process to help build and create habits to ensure success.  
  • See examples of how collaboration currently is being put into practice at the Cleveland Clinic.

Think Tank

Clinical Data Analysis is Healthcare's Big Data Challenge

The payment reform introduced by the Accountable Care Act is having significant ripples across the industry not the least of which is putting healthcare organizations in the position to reduce procedures and spending while simultaneously increasing overall health and patient outcomes. Leading edge organizations are realizing that they can achieve these seemingly opposite goals by more accurately and granularly understanding their patient community, the health issues they are suffering, and the causes of those issues. By defining the patient population into discrete subpopulations healthcare organizations are more able to leverage appropriate care at appropriate times but defining those subpopulations is a challenge for which big data analytics is the key.

Takeaways:

  • Healthcare organizations are under increasing pressure to do more with less and so need to find new solutions to old problems
  • At the same time the potential for visibility has never been higher given the volume of data being collected as a result of widespread EHR adoption
  • CIOs must leverage big data technologies to help their organizations understand the patient community to improve health and lower cost

Think Tank

Shadow IT - To Embrace or Eliminate?

Best practice in most enterprises, at least as far as the CIO and CISO goes, is to squash Shadow IT wherever it is encountered. Shadow IT, the argument goes, leads to a world of data and integration problems for the IT department, and significant amounts of unknown and unquantifiable risk for the information security group. A small but vocal minority however is beginning to advocate for Shadow IT as a catalyst of innovation, citing the increases in productivity and creativity by allowing enterprise staff to find their own out of the box solutions to organizational problems. CISOs can allow their organizations to have their cake (Shadow IT) and eat it too (still be secure) by following a few simple steps that allow them to build in security regardless of user activity.

Takeaways:

  • Shadow IT is not malicious activity; it is simply the Line of Business user community looking to be efficient and effective
  • A well-developed security program can take Shadow IT into account and incorporate protection mechanisms that allow end user flexibility
  • Embracing Shadow IT does not mean no holds barred and end users need to understand the limit of the boundaries and the reason for their existence

Addressing Health Record Interoperability

Approximately 90% of all Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) is tied up in the top ten vendors but even with this level of standardization across the industry, interoperability challenges still abound. With the major vendors each pushing their own standards there appears to be no end in sight to this challenge either. As a result, healthcare organizations are increasingly challenged in providing efficient and effective care when patients, practitioners, and procedures cross between EHR systems that don't look the same, work the same, communicate the same, or integrate the same. And given that this is a technology-based problem, it is often laid at the CIO's feet as an issue to be resolved.

Takeaways:

  • Interoperability is a major stumbling block for healthcare organizations and their IT departments
  • Lack of ability to share information between disparate systems is limiting innovation and inter-network interaction
  • Increasingly CIOs will be tasked to solve this problem that software provider won't and need to begin finding solutions today

Think Tank

Addressing Privacy on a Global Scale

Of all the risk management issues that present themselves to the modern-day CISO, perhaps the most difficult to address is that of privacy. In and of itself, privacy is no different a challenge than protecting any other sensitive information, however the multi-jurisdictional impacts of the issue due to wildly differing laws between the US and European countries (as well as Canada, another country with strong privacy laws) make this an issue that is often times overwhelming to address. CISOs must work diligently to ensure that their privacy efforts conform with the standards of any jurisdiction with which they might work, where their data might be held and this is an almost overwhelming task.

Takeaways:

  • Privacy is one of the most challenging issues for any business and CISO to address
  • The difference in regulations between and among European countries (both those in and out of the EU itself) and North American ones means traversing a fraught landscape
  • A strong approach to privacy that addresses global differences is essential to being a stable and viable global business

How Digital Transformation is Reshaping Healthcare Organizations

With healthcare reform well underway, innovative and disruptive virtual care delivery models are emerging. Health IT leaders are being challenged to improve performance and take cost out while being asked to invest in innovation to enable new care modalities. Gartner refers to the need to manage these two separate modes of IT delivery as ?Bimodal IT.? Join Dell EMC in a discussion of what it means to operate in a bimodal world and one way our customers are freeing up budget associated with legacy applications enabling investment in the future.

Strategic and Secure Mobility

Is mobility a cost? Or is it a key part of your strategy for business success? Many businesses are leveraging mobility to generate real and measurable returns and to increase their competitiveness. How? Join CDM Media and BlackBerry as we explore ways in which companies can strategically manage their mobility investments.

In our session we'll look at security - again from a strategic viewpoint. Security covers a wide range of issues in the modern enterprise. While protection of data is at the forefront, security involves many other aspects and issues from secure collaboration to the security and protection of employees in an increasingly tumultuous world. We'll deal not only with securing mobility, but how the strategic use of mobility can make you more secure.

The Trying Technology of Telehealth

As the healthcare system strives for greater levels of efficiency it is increasingly becoming a very centralized capability. This change is leaving many American's out in the cold as local healthcare facilities close and local providers leave. In many ways Telehealth is the solution for this disturbing trend by providing the opportunity for remote delivered primary care. Telehealth also offers flexibility in care delivery for those that remain in serviced communities, lessening the load on strained physical infrastructure. But implementing a comprehensive Telehealth capability however requires significant investments in supporting IT capabilities and therefore significant investment from the CIO.

Takeaways:

  • First and fore most Telehealth requires bandwidth and lots of it so IT departments need to revamp networks to handle the load
  • Telehealth is reliant on high quality imaging capabilities so expect storage demands to grow exponentially
  • Finally, to be able to offer services proactively a significant investment in predictive analytics capabilities is required

Think Tank

Applying Big Data Principles to Security Paradigms

Volume, variety, velocity, veracity; all four of the hallmarks of Big Data have a clear fit in the world of security as the number of threats grows, their natures diverge, the speed with they are encountered (and subsequently have to be dealt with) accelerates, and the need to be ever more accurate enhances. As enterprises have made significant investments in Big Data programs and analytics platforms, they are beginning to reap real benefits in terms of business efficiency and innovation. The time then has come to begin applying those same principles and platforms to the security challenges facing enterprises to allow for faster, more effective overall security.

Takeaways:

  • The nature of the enterprise security challenge closely mimics many of the Big Data challenges business are beginning to learn how to solve
  • Just as Big Data challenges required different tools to address for Line of Business and general IT issues, so they will for information security challengeSecurity must become the next focus for analytics capabilities, and analytics the next focus for security professionals

eHealth Readiness

Electronic Health Records (EHR), Telehealth, Mobile health (mHealth), wearable (and embeddable) health monitoring devices and a myriad of equivalent new technologies are presaging a change in the way healthcare is delivered, moving us to an eHealth world. eHealth promises new levels of efficiency and effectiveness in healthcare, but as a paradigm shift is fundamentally based on information technology and the capabilities of the IT department and the CIO. As with other businesses that have undergone their own ?e? revolution, healthcare IT needs to be prepared today to become intimately involved in the day to day business processes of the organization for which they work and begin investing in the backend capabilities required to support those new front end initiatives.

Takeaways:

  • The eHealth revolution is already underway; CIOs have done an admirable job keeping pace to date, but the rate of change is set to grow exponentially
  • Infrastructure and Integration will continue to be significant ?I's? in CIO, but more than ever Information and Innovation will come to the fore
  • How healthcare IT leaders relate to their business partners will determine their own long-term success, and that of their organization as a whole

Think Tank

How to be Socially Secure (or Securely Social)

Social media is the least hyped and potentially least adopted of the so-called disruptive technologies, at least by enterprises in general. This doesn't mean that employees are embracing these tools personally however, nor does it mean that enterprises should continue to avoid them. The fact of the matter is social platforms allow for incredible levels of interaction that when harnessed can lead to significant creativity and productivity gains allowing enterprises that adopt and encourage the use of social collaboration platforms to be more successful than their non-social peers. But every newly adopted technology brings with it unique problems and so it is the CISOs job to provide the secure landscape within which this social collaboration, both internal and external, sanctioned and not, can occur.

Takeaways:

  • Your employees are already social whether you realize it or not, facilitate it or not so ignoring the issue only leads to greater security problems
  • Social collaboration presents a real security threat as information is more freely shared, and interactions occur outside the boundaries of enterprise control
  • Social security programs must be built in layers, addressing first unsanctioned use, then sanctioned all while differentiating between internal and external social activity

Keynote Presentation

Data Integration in an Open Healthcare World

One of the potential side benefits to emerge from the switch to Accountable Care is the increasing pressure that is being exerted on everyone in the industry to become more open with healthcare data. The value however could go far beyond incremental improvements. Payers will become a cornerstone of this new world because they have the most robust data collection and aggregation processes, their only limitation being their inability to collect enough of the right data from providers and patients. By moving to a model where all data from a healthcare transaction, from EMR data all the way to claims payment data, a more consistent and holistic view can be generated, and deeper insights discovered. Payer CIOs need to begin laying the groundwork for this future today by looking at their data collection and analysis platforms, their communications capabilities, and their interoperability standards to ensure the technology doesn't impede the progress.

Takeaways:

  • Big Data initiatives have had tremendous benefit in every industry to which they have been applied; next up is healthcare
  • In healthcare, Payers will need to take the lead given their data management capabilities but will need to partner tightly with providers and patients to collect the requisite data
  • Payer IT departments need to begin preparing for this change now, thinking about the impact on their data architecture and data sharing processes
