On November 14, 2012, Saugatuck held its 2nd annual Cloud Business Summit at the Westin Times Square in New York City. As with our inaugural event, this year’s conference brought together large-enterprise CIOs, CTOs and senior business leaders to explore what is possible, what is real, and what is not in the Cloud today.
In this Featured panel entitled “Managing Risk and Reward in the Boundary-free Enterprise”, Saugatuck’s Mike West (VP and Distinguished Analyst) leads a panel of large-enterprise business and IT leaders that focuses on the key challenges, risks and expected rewards that companies are facing as they move to the Boundary-free Enterprise™ (BfE) and its enabling Master Architecture.
In Part I, our panelists present their first-hand experiences and some of the best practices that are helping them to manage this major transformation. The panel kicks off with an overview of Saugatuck’s BfE model, then highlights some of the key benefits / rewards that Cloud brings, from both an application and infrastructure perspective. The panel then transitions into some of the key risks / challenges, and lessons learned, from the transition to the BfE.
Joining West on the panel are Gary Lynch, Managing Director at Marsh, Irving Wladawsky-Berger, Strategic Advisor at Citi (and VP Emeritus at IBM), Ed Beesley, CIO at SGS, and Louis Nauges, Blogger and CIO Advisor, who was kind enough to travel from Paris, France to join in our discussion.
