  • Panel Discussion: Impact of Cloud and Digital on Future of the IT Organisation
    Panel Discussion: Impact of Cloud and Digital on Future of the IT Organisation Rob Pritchard (Moderator) Recorded: Mar 8 2017 59 mins
    The organisational impact of “cloud” adoption (in all its guises), as well as other modern enterprise technologies, is a topic of relevance to IT and business leaders in all industry sectors.
    The much vaunted shift to "everything-as-a-service" will have major implications not only on the tasks and services that IT departments traditionally perform, but the skills required in the organisation and the nature of the relationship that “IT” has with the “business”. Shadow IT is now a fact of life in most organisations. Business customers expect IT to take more of a leadership role in defining and enabling business strategy.
    Or will it? Is it? Do they?
    Join our panel of CxOs sharing real world experience as they debate the key factors impacting the performance of IT and how it evolves to meet the challenges
    Panellists:
    Mark Dermody, IT Director Costa Coffee
