Tim Campos, CIO of Facebook will share his insights on leading ICT at the world’s largest social network, at the CIO Summit in Auckland on June 25 and 26 at the SkyCity Convention Centre.
The conference, now in its sixth year, is the largest gathering of CIOs and senior IT executives in New Zealand.
Other keynote speakers at the event include IDC chief analyst Frank Gens, FX Alliance CIO Steve Rubinow, VMware CTO Paul Strong and Denise McDonagh, G-Cloud programme director and director of IT at the the UK Home Office.
The theme for this year’s conference is ‘The Leadership Imperative: Agility, business growth, collaboration’. It is organised by CIO magazine, IDC and Conferenz.
Campos will talk about CIOs and the social enterprise, as well as how he and his team manage big data, security, resilience and business continuity. He will also discuss which business technology skills are most valuable in today’s environment and how Facebook ensures it has the right mix of critical skills.
Gens will share pointers on “competing for 2020 and the ICT decisions CIOs must get right today”. He says the ICT industry is in the midst of a ‘once every 20 to 25 years’ shift to a new technology for growth and innovation. He will provide a strategic view of the next stage of the key global technology trends that will define the future of enterprise and consumer ICT.
Strong will address the world of the CIO: from the changing infrastructure in today’s world, to the ability to build and run new applications that best take advantage of this infrastructure, to the new and emerging end-user world.
Rubinow will discuss the rise of the CIO as a business leader. Growth of data, security concerns, meeting consumer demand for technology and service, collaboration and resilience are key issues facing today’s networked enterprises.
McDonagh will talk about the changing government ICT landscape as more agencies are moving to a shared services model and making use of cloud services.
