About the event

Predictions 2024 – The CXO agenda

The omnipresence of Generative AI technology has been raising both business expectations and security/risk concerns. However, other highly dynamic changes are also occurring across the technology management landscape. Corporate technologies were once relegated to on-premises server rooms, then dedicated data centres – but now also exist in highly distributed devices and platforms in hybrid sovereign clouds. Technology’s influence is now “all-pervading and everywhere all-at-once”. Software, previously driven by coding fixed business rules, is now giving way to automated predictive algorithms and large language models. All these technology trends are driving change. But that change is increasingly happening in the boardroom, not the server room. So how can organisations not only adopt but assimilate these changes into their businesses and operating models?

Join Red Hat executives, thought leaders and peers at the Red Hat Executive Exchange in Wellington – an exclusive event curated for senior business and technology leaders from across New Zealand.

The exclusive event will feature guest speaker Sam Higgins, a Forrester’s Principal Analyst, who will share some of the key trends for 2024 and help understand how to drive High-Performance IT – not be driven over by it.
