SVP Wholesale IT, Fidelity Technology Group, Fidelity Investments
To take advantage of the transformations in information technology – such as software-defined networking, software-defined storage, cloud storage, cloud plus mobile computing, and more – IT Business leaders are advised to rethink organizational design. Traditional siloed IT organizations are tied to legacy vendors, processes, and tools creating constraints and limiting the organization’s ability to take advantage of advances in IT. Cloud infrastructure groups, on the other hand, are not tied to legacy vendors, are able to leverage open source tools, and are developing streamlined processes resulting in being more nimble and the ability to move more quickly without traditional constraints allowing them to build infrastructure that’s lower cost and more agile. In this keynote session, Keith Shinn of Fidelity Investments will discuss the value of IT organizational design around Cloud Infrastructure to deliver competitive advantage.
