    DAY 1
    1:00 - 1:15 - Welcome and Opening Remarks
    Lenny Liebmann, Contributing Editor, InformationWeek

    1:15 - 2:00 - Keynote: What it Means to Be an IT Leader in 2017
    B. Lee Jones, Advisory Professor and Member of Advisory Committe, California Science and Technology University
    Technology executives used to be in the utility business -- maintaining and operating the systems that run the business. But that charter is changing as organizations embed technology into the products and services they offer to their own customers. Find out how attitudes much change and how successful leaders are adapting to today's demands.

    2:00 - 2:30 - Data Analytics Below the Surface
    Mike Cuddy, VP of IT and CIO, Toromont Industries
    In its adoption of data analytics, Toromont Industries has experienced the familiar iceberg effect in which there is far more beneath the surface than is casually observed. Mike Cuddy will dive deep and relate how sensors are creating explosive growth in the amount of equipment operating data his company collects, challenging existing technology and cultural models. He'll also explore the ways that analyzing that data is providing insights into business and workflow operations as well as shedding light on new opportunities for growth.

    2:30 - 3:00 - Break

    3:00 - 3:30 -The Path to Next-Generation DevOps: What Really Works
    Nathen Harvey, Vice President, Community Development, Chef Software
    Automation is the foundation for DevOps but simply automating your infrastructure is not enough. The next-generation of DevOps will be defined by organizations that outperform their peers. Outperform by shipping faster, collaborating more, reducing risk, and continuously learning. This presentation will explore some of the success factors employed by organizations that are on the leading edge of the DevOps movement and provide some guidance on how you can take the next steps.

    3:30 - 5:00 - Leveraging Disruptive Technologies: An Ideation Exercise
    Tania Anaissie, Lecturer and Experience Designer, Stanford
    Rapidly emerging new technologies are transforming the competitive landscape of every industry and discipline. It can feel daunting to keep track of new advancements and to imagine how to incorporate them into our current work. In this session, we will move through structured brainstorms around these technologies to imagine what current and future applications could do for our work.
