Digital Transformation part 1: Understanding the Modern Landscape

Steven J. Horvath

Steve Horvath
Chief Innovation Officer

Being an IT Leader requires a new way of thinking. The advent of “digital” is changing the rules and empowering technology leadership to help define what transformation means to their organization.

This session will identify the important trends that are redefining the playbook. We’ll look at real-world examples and discuss how the fields of business and technology are changing and becoming inseparable.

How ITIL 4 Enables Allocation of IT Resources to the Business’s Highest Priorities

Greg Wheeler
Advisory Services Director

IT organizations routinely have more demand than they have staff or financial resources to handle. Consequently, decisions need to be made ensuring the most effective application of IT’s limited resources to address the business needs.

ITIL 4’s expanded scope provides enhanced guidance on how to make decisions and allocate resources to achieve optimal results. This interactive session will explore some practice areas delineated in ITIL 4 and how they can be leveraged to address this common issue. Participants will be encouraged to share their real-world examples to add even more life to the discussion.

Aptris will also be sponsoring the VIP reception on Tuesday, Oct. 8th.

Keynote speaker Bernie Moreno, Chairman of Ownum, is the face of Blockchain Technology in Cleveland.  Blockchain is the technology the underpins digital currency (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and the like). The tech allows digital information to be distributed, but not copied. That means each individual piece of data can only have one owner.

Blockchain Technology was invented in 2008, but only came into the public conversation when Bitcoin launched.  Moreno will be discussing his role in making Cleveland the hub of Blockchain Technology.

It’s been only a decade-and-a-half since Bernie Moreno arrived in Northeast Ohio. Yet in that relatively short amount of time, he has made a lasting impact on his adopted hometown, serving the community, changing the culture of Greater Cleveland business and working to alter the trajectory of the regions’s economy.

A former owner of as many as a dozen car dealerships in Northeast Ohio and 4 other states selling brands such as Porsche, Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce and Masarati, eventually becoming the largest-volume luxury dealer in the Midwest, Moreno has taken numerous under-performing operations and transformed them into world-class businesses, earning numerous awards in the process of doing so.

Keenly aware of the acceleration of technology, Bernie is always on the lookout for potential disruptive challenges to his businesses and for promising investment opportunities – through start-ups and strategic acquisitions. Bernie Moreno Companies now boasts a variety of diverse ventures, including tech start-ups, a commercial printing company, a vehicle subscription service and more.

No matter the sector, Bernie uses the same effective formula for success: Spot an opportunity, seize it and succeed with unmatched entrepreneurial energy.
He began a strategic exit from his traditional vehicle dealerships in 2017 to focus on his other ventures, especially Ownum, a tech start-up that is on a mission to identify, support and commercialize the most promising applications of Blockchain Technology.
