Al Slamecka presenting at Cisco Live 2019

Few would have predicted existing digital capabilities would scale as efficiently and effectively as they did from 2020 to the present. Consequently, financial services executives are more confident in their organization’s ability to accelerate transformation at scale. Each transformation of a business line brings financial institutions closer to the goal of translating cross-business synergies into truly differentiated customer and employee experiences. A modern digital infrastructure is needed to power this operational transformation milestone, however, managing the complexity of the IT estate requires a new approach and new solutions.

2. Dan Nadir, Chief Product Officer at Theta Lake, discusses solving the security and compliance challenges of hybrid work.

The adoption of Hybrid Work has created a shift in how people communicate and collaborate, including the increasing functionality of chat, video meetings, whiteboard, transcripts for note taking, polls that creates more productive and inclusive collaboration. However, the modern communication archiving, eDiscovery, legal-hold, surveillance, and security requirements and needs for regulated industries have remained the same. Learn how Theta Lake is helping organizations leverage the full ROI of Webex, drive broader adoption, and turn on productivity enhancing features and functionality of Webex while remaining compliant.

3. In this customer success story presentation hear from Nationwide Insurance about their journey with programmability and automation.

Today’s network engineers are being asked to do more with less—making programmability and automation a necessary skillset. Hear from Nationwide Insurance about their journey with programmability and automation and how they are preparing to make this transition. You will learn about their organizational changes in order to be more agile through a DevOps-like model, how they are using tools like Cisco DNA Center to accelerate speed of provisioning, and how they leverage APIs to automate the process of peer reviewing, approving, and synchronizing configuration templates.
