Fear may be stopping nearly half of Australia’s Chief Information Officers from implementing an ‘out of the box’ enterprise resource planning (ERP) system in the cloud, according to research by DXC Eclipse, the Microsoft practice within DXC Technology. You can’t blame them. Since the 1990s, ERP rollouts hosted in organisations’ data centres have been complex, expensive and often failed. And there have been some epic failures in Australia and overseas. But in this modern cloud era, shifting on-premise ERP systems to the cloud is not as scary as it seems, even if your organisation has spent great deal of time and money modifying your ERP platform to suit the business’ needs. More than ever, you organisation is demanding fast outcomes and returns-on-investment for enterprise software projects, and moving your ERP to cloud infrastructure, in many cases, is the answer. Join CIO Australia, DXC Eclipse and IDC’s Vice President, Linus Lai, discuss ‘Why moving your ERP to the cloud is easier than you think’. You will get the opportunity to hear from experts who will provide practical advice on how to plan for and deliver a successful ‘fast ERP’ in the cloud and the speakers will then participate in a Q&A forum.

The webinar will commence with a presentation from leading industry analyst and Ecosystm principal advisor, Tim Sheedy who will discuss trends in the data centre market and what organisations should be doing to ensure their infrastructure meets future demands. More than ever, organisations are requiring extra capacity in their data centres as they start to take advantage of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, internet-of-things, and 5G technologies to name a few. To support the use of these technologies and accommodate future business growth, organisations are increasing fibre optic links inside their data centres from 40Gb/s per link to 100Gb/s and 400Gb/s, industry expert Mike Gallagher will discuss this process. You will hear how your organisation can ensure its network hardware and cable infrastructure will be suitable for years to come. The webinar will conclude with a panel discussion which will showcase how one organisation used such principles.

The world is changing how it works on a near daily basis. Digital transformation is challenging organisations of all shapes and sizes. And CIOs need to develop best practices for enabling, managing and securing the digital workplace. Unquestionably, content is the lifeblood of any organisation. But the way companies manage their content today is completely unsustainable. Indeed, many CIOs often get stuck using costly, complex and inflexible legacy systems that fail to make content accessible across devices and locations. Certainly, tech leaders need help addressing a myriad of challenges - from complicated compliance and regulatory standards for how data is stored, retained and archived; to dealing with manual and inefficient document ingestion and workflows that create poor experiences for employees, customers, clients and partners. Join CIO Australia and cloud content management player, Box, for an exclusive webinar that will reveal how CIOs can find a simple and secure way to collaborate across teams and revolutionise the way in which their companies work. The webinar will reveal: How managing content in the cloud fosters collaboration, improves security and lowers costs, so the entire organisation can work as one. How CIOs can overcome the latest challenges and pain points by leveraging the latest cloud content management technology to better serve their business. How CIOs can lessen the burden of high costs and complexity by ‘taking control’ of their legacy and on-premise solutions. How transforming your content by making it accessible in the cloud is an important step towards digital transformation.

Company-wide digital transformation programs are empowering enterprises to provide their staff with new applications and services faster than ever while enabling rapid upgrades through new, agile development cycles. But as organisations step into the future, many are still persisting with upgrading and renewing antiquated platforms that no longer fit into modern application architectures. In every case, it’s no longer good enough to limit your staff to interacting with key apps on desktop computers. Apps need to be accessible from anywhere and on any device. Join CIO Australia and VMware for an exclusive webcast, ‘How to create a new, more agile digital workspace’ where you will learn why modern, cloud-based workspaces are the future. The webinar features Joseph Sweeney, Senior Analyst, IBRS and Will Dallender-Jones, End-User Computing Architect at VMware’s APJ Center of Excellence who will discuss why empowering workers through technology is more important than ever and the key capabilities required when transforming your employee IT services. Now is the time to decide if your organisation wants to cling to the past or explore other options that will provide a far more capable, effective digital workspace for the future.

Every business will fall victim to a cyber-attack at some stage. The sheer number and frequency of attacks makes it a certainty - it’s not a case of ‘if’ an organisation will be breached, it’s ‘when’. Global attacks including the recent ‘WannaCry’ ransomware outbreak – which claimed 12 enterprise victims in Australia – are forcing organisations to think harder about their cyber security strategies. Enterprises are shifting their thinking from just securing their systems to becoming more ‘cyber resilient.’ They are acknowledging that cyber attacks will continue and sometimes be successful, and how they respond to minimise the impact of a breach is just as important as deploying the right technology.
