FedEx and the overall economy are in the midst of one of the largest transformations since the internet. It’s a digital transformation where value is created systematically throughout all industry sectors, thanks to information technology barriers of entry being eliminated and customer touch points plus value chains going digital.

FedEx, for more than four decades, has built a portfolio of innovative solutions that connect customers to more than 220 countries and territories. That’s 99% of the world’s global gross domestic product. FedEx understands the value of IT as package data is as valuable as the package itself. FedEx is a monument to American ingenuity and creativity. FedEx is a massively large-scale company rooted in innovation and the use of secure digital technologies. There is no one better positioned to talk about the business imperatives, opportunities and challenges of being digital than Chris Inglis, CIO of FedEx Board member, Visiting Professor of Cyber Studies at the U.S. Naval Academy, served 28 years at the National Security Agency as a computer scientist and operational manager, retiring in 2014 as the Agency’s Deputy Director and senior civilian leader. Prior to joining the NSA, Mr. Inglis had nine years of active duty service as an officer and pilot in the U.S. Air Force, followed by twenty-one years with the Air National Guard, from which he retired as a Brigadier General. Mr. Inglis is currently a director of Huntington Bancshares Inc, KEYW Corp and FedERx. Chris knows the importance of being a software and technology company. In this exclusive keynote, Chris will talk about how being digital is not an option, but a necessity for survival, and how IT and its practitioners need to fundamentally change to thrive in the new SECURE digital economy
