Cyber Summit 2020 Schedule
Workshop Day - November 24
1:00pm - 4:00pm MST
This three-part workshop will review how public institutions, like Athabasca University, have leveraged the AWS cloud to address challenges like remote student learning. It will also discuss how UBC students are using the Cloud Innovation Centre to solve real-world challenges. Finally, presenters will provide an overview of a program that helps institutions assess and optimize their current on-premises and/or cloud environments, and provide tips for migrating to the cloud.
2:00pm - 5:00pm MST
Staff within IT departments often feel like they operate in a different world than everyone else. Many wonder why their leaders don’t recognize the strategic importance of IT, and invite them to the strategic table. This webinar will provide strategies and takeaways on how you, as a CIO/Senior IT Leader, can help “bridge the gap” between the business administration and IT departments in order to foster better understanding and collaboration. We will explore how to transform that relationship from “IT as a Cost Centre” to “IT as a Value Centre”, enabling a willingness to invest in the digital transformation we must all undergo.
Speaker: John Krogh - President and CEO, Value Shepherd Inc.
