Consumerisation of IT workshop with Dion Hinchcliffe on Thu 17th May, 2012

Employees have begun driving the use of consumer technology in the workplace—bringing their mobile devices, Web apps, and social networking experience with them from home—but the trend goes even deeper than that. It’s a fundamental shift away from IT creating and managing the organisation’s IT assets to accepting that employees now own significant swaths of technology and will lead the enterprise march into the future. Dion has watched organisations large and small struggle with this convergence of mobile, social, cloud and big data, and has helped them prevail in their quest to harness it for innovation to transform the way the enterprise does business.

Dion will explore the new IT landscape and share his consumerisation experiences in the field to set the stage for consumerisation in your organisation by showcasing real-world companies that represent the new generation of IT and business. Participants will be equipped with strategies that will enable them to take steps towards managing the trends and keeping ahead of current trends.

When: 2pm-5pm, Thursday 17th May, 2012
