Despite many businesses attracting and retaining more women, a massive gender gap still exists - particularly in the IT industry, where female CIOs represent only 10 per cent of the IT workforce across Australia. No doubt, it’s an uphill battle the industry faces in trying to approach gender parity. Understandably, any meaningful change is recognisably slow in the making. But there are success stories and positive moves on the horizon. In that vein, and for the first time at this year’s CIO Summit in Melbourne, we’re assembling a cast of successful female leaders to reveal insights and personal stories of challenges and triumphs in climbing the corporate IT ladder. This 30-minute interactive panel discussion will delve into how the industry can tackle the ongoing gender diversity challenge; how to better celebrate the role women play in the industry; and how women can buck the trend and take a more prominent place in the traditionally male-dominated IT industry. The panel will delve into: Why the gender gap? How can women overcome imposter syndrome? How can IT be better sold to young women? How the industry can better foster diversity and make a real difference? How leadership and mentoring are key to inspiring the next generation?

Closing the DX Gap with Integration: ROI, Revenue & Results from Real Customers | Paul Quintal, Pre Sales Engineer, Dell BoomiDigital Transformation (DX) is not just about deploying new systems or modernizing IT — it’s also about changing the business. Organizations are looking for ways to unlock operational efficiencies, generate revenue streams and drive DX initiatives to create a connected business. With effective data management, business users can interact with the data and applications they need to work effectively. Now freed from limitations, organizations can deliver results for customers as quickly, easily and effectively as possible. Using several case studies, we take a closer look at the qualitative benefits experienced by organizations who adopt Integration to close their DX gap — realizing cost savings, increased organizational speed and a broad mix of soft benefits. Along with future trends for a connected business, such as Blockchain and IOT.
