ITI conferences
The changing role of data and analytics in all types of decisions

CIOs, IT leaders and architects must understand the changing role of data and analytics. Organizations face increasing challenges to make better and faster business decisions, but decisions keep getting more complex with a growing number of technical factors to consider. With cloud services, good software tools are available, and organizations generally can access the data they need to make effective decisions.

This session looks at the key to effective decision making, the art of knowing where and how to integrate data into business processes, applications and decision intelligence.

After 200 cloud transformations, what have we learned?

Panel discussion with 3 ITI experts on the key lessons learned from their vast experiences with cloud migration in the past years.

What if technology was the key to employee retention?

In today’s labor shortage and decentralized policies for companies, providing a modern work environment plays an important role. The impact of technology on the employee experience is a decisive factor for companies in their retention process.

Optimizing workflows through workstations & Lenovo devices modern IT - By Lenovo

A simplified cybersecurity threat management experience with cisco securex xdr architecture - By Cisco

Cybersecurity teams are facing an unprecedented increase in cyberattacks. Different organizations are using a multitude of incompatible tools in a siloed environment forcing teams to switch between different consoles, trying to manually correlate threat information. This approach is unfortunately unsustainable and can push detection and response times up to 280 days putting you at risk. To simplify visibility, detection and response, security teams must be able to turn weak signals into reliable alerts and act on them with confidence, either manually or automatically. Extended Detection and Response (XDR) helps provide that confidence with the collected context of all your consolidated environments in a single, easy-to-explore and easy-to-use view.

Built for backup – Exagrid tiered backup storage - By Exagrid

Are you challenged by protecting and managing ever-increasing amounts of data along with the costs to keep up with that growth? Are you regularly exceeding your backup window? Learn how thousands of organizations have resolved these issues with ExaGrid’s cost-effective, scalable, tiered backup storage. ExaGrid writes data directly to disk for the fastest backups, and restores directly from disk for the fastest restores and VM boots. The long-term retention data is deduplicated into a non-network-facing tier as immutable objects, to save on the storage costs and to ensure that data is always recoverable, even in the event of a ransomware attack. This two-tiered approach provides the fastest backup and restore performance with lowest cost storage efficiency.

Go beyond immutability! - By Dell Technologies

ZTAAS (Zero trust as a service): making your Zero trust architecture (ZTA) journey possible - By Zscaler

In the last decade, the Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) has established itself as the new standard for IT security: if the basic concepts of ZTA have remained unchanged, the architecture itself has evolved a lot during the same period to add to the initial concept of micro-segmentation components of identity, systems, contextual telemetry, feedback loop, continuous evaluation, etc.

Having supported many companies in their efforts to deploy their ZTA in the last 10 years, we must admit that few of them have been able to set it up despite their real desire to adopt it. This failure is mainly due to the complexity of the underlying infrastructure required by ZTA.

In parallel to the evolution of ZTA we witnessed the adoption of cloud computing and its principles, enabling IT organizations to transition from managing infrastructure to focus on application and services.

What happens when we use cloud computing to offer the ZTA in service mode? A democratized access to the implementation of a ZTA in your environment

This session is intended for chief technology and security officers, cloud, network and security specialists, as well as enterprise and application architects.
