9:05am – Session 1: A Revamp of IT Operating Model under Digitisation Mr. Stanley Sum, Director, CIO Advisory, KPMG China
Today, most organisations are somewhere along a digital transformation journey employing disruptive technologies to innovate across products, services, and business models. CIOs have been struggling to keep up with the insatiable demand for new digital capabilities from their business stakeholders. In fact, many have been watching their business counterparts increasingly turn to different types of external providers for the emerging technology they need (e.g. AI, Blockchain). In response, some CIOs have adopted multi-speed IT, increased their use of agile methodologies, or even created standalone digital units separate from the traditional IT organisation.
But these are only stop-gap measures. What’s really needed is an advancement in IT operating model, breaking down the traditional technology silos and acquiring new skills.
In this session, our speaker will examine key components of IT operating model in digital age to enable effective benefit realisations from disruptive technologies and at the same time, minimising the inherent risks.
