The Data Democratisation Revolution:

Why CIO/CMO Alignment is the Key to Success

We’re seeing a new wave of democracy—of data, that is.


IT departments and organisations are allowing more business users access to data to expedite decision making, influence sales and customer service, and uncover opportunities. Therefore, the CTO and CMO relationship is becoming one of the most important C-suite relationships when it comes to delivering the kind of the digital experiences that customers demand. However these roles are traditionally very different, and that can make collaboration a challenge at times. In this session, Will Griffith, VP & GM APJ at Tealium, discuss how a strong collaboration between CMO and CTO accelerates businesses’ success

Industry and the Future of AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a hot topic nowadays. Starting in the late 1950s it has taken a long time to develop technology capable of near-human performance. But new, exciting, and sometimes scary AIs are announced at an increasing pace. ChatGPT, the almost-human chatbot announced two months ago by OpenAI, is a good example.  As AI becomes more general it will increasingly impact industry.  But will it take over?  In this talk we take a look at where AI came from and where it is going.

The potential breach of secure data, loss of intellectual and personnel data, and extreme remediation also come at a high price. This session explores:

  • The rise and the evolution of ransomware attack 

  • How modern data protection capabilities can enhance an organization's security posture

  • Building a Threat Defence Architecture that brings SecOps and IT Ops together
