The upcoming IT Strategy Days will be held in Hamburg from February 16-17, 2017 under the theme “It’s all about Speed – Strategies for Digital Transformation“. Then, some 750 Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and IT experts will meet in the Hotel Grand Elysée to discuss strategies, skills and approaches to management. The event is being organised by the Business-Netzwerk Hamburg@work, Faktor 3 Live, a subsidiary of Faktor 3 GmbH agency and the CIO business magazine.
IT trends and debates
Speed is crucial to success and keeping up with rivals. The same applies to digitalisation and without the right structures, some companies may fall behind. The IT Strategy Days will take a closer look at the latest trends in technology, sourcing and management and use practical examples to illustrate ways of surmounting these challenges. The agenda includes keynotes, round table discussions and debates.
The speakers include Thomas Saueressig, CIO of SAP, who will talk about “agile innovation platforms“. Klaus Helmrich, Member of the Board at Siemens AG, will highlight how digitalisation can help make products individual. Horst Ellermann, publisher of CIO, and Prof. Dr. Helmut Krcmar, Chair of the Department of Informatics at the Technical University of Munich, will moderate the discussions. Later, a shuttle service will bring guests to the CXO Lounge – a networking event for business people in the Mojo Club on the Reeperbahn.
Stage for start-ups
Six start-ups will also have an opportunity to present their companies to all the delegates provided they have an operable and marketable hard or software product from the B2B sector. However, the application phase has already ended.
