Concurrent Speaking Sessions

Disruptive Innovation—A Positive Impact on People, Processes and Technology

Date: Wednesday, April 20

Time: 2:15 p.m.

Description: Disruptive Technology is one that significantly alters the way that a business operates or a government delivers services. A disruptive innovation is differentiated from a disruptive technology in that it focuses on the use of the technology rather than the technology itself. Examples of disruptive technologies and innovations include the Internet (World Wide Web), digital music and pictures, eCommerce, Mobile Internet (Smartphones and cell/wifi), Internet of Things (IoT)—including sensors and wearables, Cloud (computing, XAAS, always on devices). All of these technologies/innovations have in some way altered or even replaced/created entire industries. In this session, you will hear many examples of disruption and how it impacts People, Processes and Technology, and creates Disruptive Innovation.

Panel Participants:

  • Moderator: John Norton, Chief Information Officer, Human Services Cluster, Information Technology Services, New York State

  • Kevin Gilbertson, Senior Director, Delivery and Solutions, Helix Business Solutions

  • Roman Kalantari, Creative Technology Director, Fjord

  • Brad Kramer, Senior Business Technology Architect, CA Technologies

  • Peter Walker, Systems Engineer, Nutanix



Engaged Employees Create Satisfied Customers

Date: Wednesday, April 20

Time: 2:15 p.m.

Description: Is your organization the “best of the best?” Do your customers rave about their positive experience doing business with you? Do your employees love what they do and consider their organization a “great place to work?” This session explores how the “best of the best” companies build a positive workplace culture that creates engaged employees with a clear sense of purpose, a commitment to behaviors that bring their company values to life, and a passion for consistently delivering a great customer experience.

Panel Participants:

  • William T. Getman Jr., Executive Director, St. Catherine’s Center for Children in Albany, NY

  • Jennifer Walden, Senior Manager, Health & Public Service, Accenture Consulting



Securing the Citizen Experience

Date: Thursday, April 21

Time: 2:15 p.m.

Description: Trust is the cornerstone of good government. In the face of highly visible public and private sector breaches, organizations must build trust in government services and assure a secure, positive citizen experience. As we move from traditional and mobile applications that provide static content, to more convenient and interactive online services, we must effectively secure data, and deliver robust services and features. Identity is becoming the perimeter of the application economy. The ability to accurately validate and manage citizen identities (IAM) is critical to securing the citizen’s experience. A panel of experts will explore provocative ideas on how organizations to balance risk while assuring usability and adoption.

Panel Participants:

  • Moderator: Jim Garrett, Chief Information Security Officer, Information Technology Services, New York State

  • Roman Kalantari, Creative Technology Director, Fjord

  • Ram Chennamsetty, Technical Strategy & Architecture, Office of the CISO, IBM

  • Kevin Flanagan, CISSP, CISA, Director, Americas Technical Consulting, RSA

  • Bill Harrod, Cyber Security Advisor, Information Security Architect, CA Technologies
