Making Green from Green- Breakfast Webinar

Is there revenue from the sustainability agenda?

Date: 14th October 2021

Time: 9:30 am to 10:15 am

Green from green

As organisations take action today to carry out business in a way that will not compromise future generations, the commitment to sustainability is both high stakes and high profile. But if delivering on sustainability agendas is all cost and no business benefit the outcome will be sub-optimal in all areas. Only a few years ago sustainability and financial success were considered to be opposing goals, but a shift has been occurring among socially responsible organisations around the concept of the triple bottom line – People, Planet and Profit. There is now evidence that the “Office of Sustainability” is becoming an increasingly powerful influence on enterprise buyer behaviour.

This evolution in corporate thinking is not only intensifying the competitive pressures on software and services suppliers to accelerate the greening of their own operations, but also creating a new source of demand for tech-driven propositions which enable customers to realise their triple bottom line ambitions. It is also leading vendors to upgrade their existing offering portfolios to better serve the sustainability agendas of their clients. In this webinar we discuss the nature of this emerging market opportunity and explore how the supply side is gearing up to tap into the revenue streams that could flow from it.

Clarity of Purpose - Breakfast Webinar

Sponsored by

Aqilla

How the pandemic helped financial services focus on what really matters!

Date: 7th October 2021

Time: 9:30 am to 10:15 am

Clarity of purpose

The UK financial services industry has just experienced a “Black Swan” event like no other in living memory. Similar to previous crises that have affected this industry, COVID-19 has already proven to be a catalyst for significant change. When we finally look back, we will almost certainly conclude that the pandemic helped to fundamentally reshape this sector. The impact of COVID-19 has seen the vulnerabilities of heritage technologies brought into sharp focus, whilst an over-reliance on analogue methods has also been exposed. As a result, many organisations are now ‘shining a light’ on a new set of priorities as the imperative for technology-led change has become almost uniformly apparent.

End-user clients are increasingly targeting technology that is real-time, API-enabled and cloud native, and can facilitate, continuous product development (CPD) and remote deployment. Ultimately, the vast majority of technology supporting business processes within the financial services space will be consumed “as a Service” via hybrid/multi cloud environments. As some UK financial services firms consider wholesale transformation of their business processes and operating models, this webinar will discuss the key priorities for the industry and the crucial areas that are helping to drive SITS spend within the sector.

Hackers and Defenders - Breakfast Webinar

How greater use of public cloud is changing the cyber security landscape

Date: 30th September 2021

Time: 9:30 am to 10:15 am

Hackers and Defenders

It’s hard to believe Amazon Web Services has now been in operation for 15 years. Along with Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, the UK’s three largest hyperscalers have made an indelible impression on the SITS market, changing the scene for good. The seismic shift to public cloud has created innovative and exciting opportunities for organisations and enabled a complete ‘gear change’ – but not without significant challenges. A non-strategic approach, failure to understand ‘cloud economics’, and lack of automation have caused serious problems for many.

In addition, migration of applications and data to the public cloud brings new cyber security threats with IT departments striving to keep close track of sensitive information across a hybrid operating environment. The hyperscalers have hardened their security protection and management solutions, while specialist suppliers have introduced cloud-native security tools optimised to safeguard distributed, cloud-hosted data and workloads. However, it’s not just about the technology. Putting in place the best approach and working with the right ecosystem of providers is absolutely key. In this webinar, we bring attendees up to speed on public cloud in the UK and explain how cyber security can be implemented to ensure the best possible line of defence.

Delivering Social Value - Breakfast Webinar

Sponsored bySopra Steria

Implications for public sector technology suppliers

Date: 23rd September 2021

Time: 9:30 am to 10:15 am

Delivering Social value

The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 introduced a requirement for public sector organisations to consider the economic, environmental and social benefits of their approaches to procurement, but it wasn’t until the start of this year that social value was required to be explicitly evaluated in all central government procurement. This requirement looks set to be extended to the wider public sector, with contracting authorities being told to consider creating new businesses, new jobs and new skills; improving supplier diversity, innovation and resilience; and tackling climate change and reducing waste, alongside additional local priorities, in procurement and contract management.

Public sector organisations are at differing stages of incorporating social value into the procurement process and across this varied sector there are a wide range of priorities; some organisations are more focused on skills development, others are more concerned about climate change. Increasingly, contracts will be won or lost based on social value credentials, so having a demonstrable commitment to improving skills, diversity, and sustainability will be vital for suppliers with aspirations in the sector. In this webinar we discuss the rising importance of social value in the public sector, the implications for technology procurement, and how suppliers can position themselves for success.
