If you look at the 2014 NY Tech Summit, you will see a few main focus areas. A big focus is IT driving business. As you will see, IT driving business value will be the focus of several presentations and many aspects of this event.
Just view the hot topics and content tracks. You will see that driving business value is a big focus along with process and operations optimization, and improving visibility & analysis. Why?
It's simple. This is today's world of information technology, and this is where IT will continue to go in the future. One can easily see this from looking at IT industry news and research. But that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Just talk to CIOs, CFOs, COOs, and other IT business leaders. They will be the first to tell you that there is a paradigm shift taking place in IT. Optimizing operations and processes to develop value driven IT is what organizations need to grow, innovate and drive financial performance.
Members of the NY Tech Summit Advisory Committee recently discussed this and made this simple, but important observation. Cloud used to be a buzz word. Virtualization used to be buzzwords. Other technologies were buzzwords. They are no longer buzzwords. There are an everyday reality. People know them. They have been implemented. Now people want to optimize for the needs of their particular business.
In fact, the keynote presentation at this year's event will be Lead the Responsive Organization Revolution: How to Inspire, Transform and Facilitate Business Driven IT.
One of the goals of NY Tech Summit is to provide real world value and education to IT professionals. We want IT pros to use this learning to improve themselves and make a bigger impact on their organizations. Understanding the shift in IT and learning to approach technology, information flow, knowledge sharing, and organizational processes in a way that drives business value will make IT professionals and organizations more valuable.
