Workshop: Bridging The Digital Skills Gap
Session One: The challenges of today's IT Director: Bridging the digital skills gap
  • Brian Klingbeil - EVP, Technology and Strategy, Ensono
  • Moderator Alex Hilton - CEO, Cloud Industry Forum (CIF)
  • Simon Ratcliffe - Principal Consultant, Ensono
  • Alan Crawford - CIO, City & Guilds Group

In our highly demanding, dynamic working environments, keeping pace with change to ensure technology is benefiting the businesses objectives is arguably our greatest transformation challenge. The words are easy, the practical implementation is far more complex. This Cloud Industry Forum session will seek to address the key points to help businesses and providers adapt their approach to ensure digital agility that truly benefits and supports organisational goals.

Topics we will be covering:

  • How do businesses need to change in an increasingly agile world?
  • How is this reflected within the real world IT Department?
  • How do Service Providers need to change to meet these changes?

This event will be introduced and moderated by Alex Hilton from CIF with keynote speakers from City & Guilds and Ensono. Simon Ratcliffe, following the publication of a series of topical articles, will discuss how organisations need to re-think their traditional structures to become agile across their whole organisation. Alan Crawford will summarise his views about the challenges and opportunities of building and marketing IT within the business with real world and practical examples. To complete the discussion, Brian Klingbeil will discuss how Service Providers need to adjust in the changing workplace to address customers needs.
