The Consumerization of IT:
Real Companies and The Next Generation of Business

Dion Hinchliffe, Executive Vice President, Strategy, Dachis Group

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 organization's IT assets to accepting that employees now own significant swaths of technology and will lead the enterprise march to the future. Noted IT thought leader and enterprise strategist Dion Hinchcliffe has watched organizations 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 consumerization experiences in the field to set the stage for the CITE 2012 program by showcasing real-world companies that represent the new generation of IT and business.

Join CIO Richard Thomas as he shows you not only what this looks like but how the organization had the vision and the acumen to become a leader in its space, with IT leading the way.

Mobile Device Management: A Bank's Due Diligence Revealed

Tony Lalli, Infrastructure Architect, Bank of New York Mellon

Innovative groups in your organization want to exploit the new tablet form factor and use their smartphones at work—without giving up their favorite personal apps. That means policy, mobile device management (MDM) technology and governance. But with 50 MDM solutions and 10 tablet and smartphone vendors on the market, where do you start? Meet a leading IT architect, who conducted a thorough evaluation of all the options in 2011 before arriving at his recommendations for a 50,000-employee company. In this session, you will get a glimpse into his analysis of the MDM market, discuss the corporate vs. personal ownership model and foster group discussion around what has worked—and what hasn't—in mobile management for both the enterprise and end users.

What is Gamification, and Why Should It Be on My Enterprise’s Priority List?

Gabe Zichermann, CEO, Gamification Co & Dopamine Inc.

Gamification doesn’t mean Xbox or Angry Birds. It means using game mechanics and features of game design to boost the effectiveness, friendliness and engagement of your digital properties. Never has this been more important than in this era of consumer technologies, where the instant gratification of collecting points, tweeting and friending have become a part of daily life.

How Consumerization is Driving a Shift in IT Storage Strategies

Terri McClure, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group

As the consumerization trend marches onward in IT, more and more end users are choosing their own software apps in lieu of using the IT sanctioned business tools. This is increasingly happening for online file sharing and collaboration applications as users tackle issues like shared data, data portability, and end point device access. This is creating a conundrum for IT as it balances business enablement, end user ease of access, and collaborative capabilities with the need to maintain control and security of information assets. This presentation will look at the on line file storage and collaboration landscape and available solutions.

It's no longer a Blackberry world in corporate America. But it’s not an iPhone- or iPad-only world either.

What criteria should you use in navigating the many offerings? This panel of practitioners has been down this path and will share their experience in assessing a market where Android, Microsoft and many device manufacturers have joined the mobile landscape.

Interactive Workshop:
Corporate Device Selection

What criteria should your team look at when considering a corporate device rollout? In this workshop, the group will work in teams to break down the question of what kind of tablets or other handhelds will provide the features, security, interoperability, ruggedness and other factors that make for a wise corporate investment in 2012. Then we’ll regroup to see what everyone came up with. Don’t miss this chance to compare your thinking with that of your peers for this important purchasing decision.

BYOD Policies

Leverage the Potential, Manage the Chaos

Noah Broadwater, CTO, Sesame Workshop

Companies at the forefront of creating compelling consumer applications are often not ready for the impact these same applications and devices have inside the business.
