Readying and Transforming your IT: HASSELL’s journey to the Cloud
Getting an international design firm ready for the cloud has been an interesting challenge. Technology is now integral to the design process, and designers are taught programming and graphic design from high school. How does an internal technology organisation determine the journey to the cloud, taking into account complicated algorithmic process and the human elements of design?
HASSELL is a growing, internationally recognised design firm. In this presentation, we discuss how we freed up resources from operational IT activities and built an internal technology organisation that adds real business value.

Servicing the Cloud-based Enterprise: What does it take?
After 5 years of cloud hype we have reached a point where real examples of the business benefits of the use of cloud, rather than using cloud services and technologies to replace ageing or costly on-premises infrastructure. In 2012, cloud services adoption is now being driven as much by business managers as it is by the CIO – with impacts and ramifications which can be understood and capitalised on by the agile CIO. To do this, an involvement with the entire cloud ecosystem becomes necessary. As well as the core skills of technology management, enterprise cloud sourcing needs extended sourcing management, scarce service management skills and provider management skills not often found in the average IT organisation.
By reference to IDC surveys and CIO feedback, this keynote presentation, and the conference agenda, examines the different components of the cloud service delivery model – from selecting and sourcing the service to maximising the value of the data collected from customer usage patterns.

Legal and Risk Considerations in Developing BYOD Policies
The advantages of BYOD programs are clear with increased mobility providing corresponding improvements on productivity and efficiencies. Formal BYOD programs, combined with supporting solutions and policies to ensure security and compliance, are fast-becoming the predominant models for enabling broad employee mobility, across multiple industries, and around the globe. However, BYOD programs also come with costs and risks, which if not managed properly, can have severe consequences.
This session will consider the legal and risk issues arising in developing and implementing BYOD programs and will specifically provide guidance on developing BYOD policies. Issues which will be considered include due diligence; managing data loss and data security; cost and insurance implications for employees and employers and privacy law and telecommunications law issues. Guidance will also be provided on best practice in developing BYOD policies including:
- Device selection and corporate application selection;
- Acceptable use guidance;
- BYOD support considerations;
- Protecting data and integrity;
- Monitoring of communications;
- Ramifications for violating BYOD policies;
- Handling of security breaches, malware attacks or the loss or theft of a device; and
- Decommissioning devices.

Building executive level relationships for the CIO
The difference between an ICT leader and a CIO can be defined by the quality of the business relationships they build. Good ICT leaders get technology decisions right; great CIOs form solid executive level relationships and are included in the business leadership of the enterprise. Doing this well can produce extraordinary business value and develop the capabilities of both colleagues and the ICT team.
Based on case studies and experience, this session will examine what makes up executive level business relationships and their importance to the CIO’s survival and success. Techniques on how to manage these critical relationships and the best practices to engage executives will be discussed together with how to best tailor an approach for each executive role.
