Why Do Digital Transformation Projects Fail?

According to analysts, 85% of projects never pass the proof of concept stage and more than two thirds of the projects fail! What is the secret to success

OECD reports state that eight out ten mid to senior managers and four out of five C-Level executives do not have the competence to transform their enterprise, coupled with the fact that two out of three people lack skills for the digital age, adds to the risk of failure.

This keynote session will cover the formula for success and discuss how to get projects out of the proof concept stage and deliver tangible results.

We will discuss the current trends as well as share case studies of successful digital workplace implementations.

Seeing the Attacker's View: A People-Centric Approach to Security

It's no secret that modern attackers have pivoted to targeting people, largely via simple phishing emails. A simple internet search can tell them all they need to know about who has access to the system or data they are targeting. You likely know that email fraud, or BEC, is costing organizations billions of dollars. But do you know why these attacks continue to reach new levels of success? 

Join this session to learn how you can identify your most attacked and riskiest users and design better strategies and protections to stop these attacks before they reach your employees, customers, and business partners.

Making Transformation Happen

People do not do what they are told. Not even if it is called it digital transformation or cyber security. Why is that? There is a gap between knowing and doing and that prevents many from achieving their digital strategy. This organisational disease is one of the biggest challenges you will come across and is neither solved by digitalisation nor optimisation of processes. This keynote will deal with identifying and illustrate the underlying problems to non-compliance. How do you win commitment with other means than data and what tactics you can use to convince your organisation that transformation requires another approach than traditional information or awareness training.

Zero Trust Networking in a Cloud First World

As digital transformation and cloud adoption gather pace, organizations are placing more and more applications and data into the cloud. Users are increasing mobile and are accessing rich cloud applications whilst on the move, going straight to the internet, often by-passing the corporate VPN. 

This new reality is leading organizations to rethink their approach to security, essentially doing away with the idea of a trusted corporate network â?" a shift in thinking that affects every level of IT. The traditional security model of 'castle and moat', placing security technology in the corporate data center is no longer effective in a cloud-first world. 

In this keynote, we will elaborate on the impact of cloud adoption and mobility on security strategy, network structure and user connectivity. We will highlight the business impact digital transformation has on IT and provide real examples of how some large and complex organizations are successfully moving to the cloud and dealing with mobility - securely.

Think Tank

Leading Successful Change

Thinking about a change project or perhaps a digitalization initiative? It is a daunting prospect as we have all heard that 70% of all change projects fail. This figure was first reported by Hammer and Champy in 1993 and, unfortunately, recent research confirm that the un-impressing statistic has not changed. 

What can be done to improve the odds of a change project delivering on the promises?  This session will provide insights derived from a real-life change initiative that delivered staggering operational and business results.
