IVI Autumn 2015 Summit
Carton House, Kildare
Do you have 21st century technology but a 20th century corporate structure? Are you equipped to attract, develop and retain digital talent? Do you know what it takes to lead in an era of digital transformation?
According to the Harvey Nash 2015 CIO Survey, digital innovation is dominating the agenda of technology leaders, but many companies are struggling to manage it. The pace of digital and the race to innovate has left many organisations lacking an enterprise-wide digital strategy and desperately seeking to acquire the right skills and talent.
This Autumn’s IVI (Innovation Value Institute) Summit focuses on the key priority of developing IT management skills and organisational capabilities for today’s digital organisations. The most important component to optimising a company’s capability in leveraging its technology investments is its people. Skills and talent are in short supply as mobile, social and analytical tools permeate the length and breadth of every function across the organisation. Missing digital skills are a key hurdle to digital business transformation.
The 2015 Summit will hear best practice from top companies including the many natioanl and international organisations the IVI has worked with in researching and delivering increased capability to expand and develop this priority area. The IVI will also launch a major research finding at the conference on the relationship between increased capability in managing technology and the level and type of skills that are needed by the organisation.
Key Agenda Topics Include:
•Connected, Inclusive & Creative: Towards Ireland’s Digital Future delivered by Ireland’s Digital Champion, Lord David Puttnam
•Finding & building the talent to get there – hiring, integrating, nurturing & developing talent in leading the drive to digital
•New thinking & approaches to talent management
•The European perspective: E-skills Manifesto: Joining forces & working together
•Case Study: IVI IT Capability Management Framework for success in talent management
•The digital talent challenge: How disruptive digital technologies are creating new working environments & demanding new skills forcing companies to adjust and innovate. What talent challenges do organisations face as they adopt technology-driven business models?
•Diversity and why it matters
•Digital transformation through e-Leadership: Perspectives of the CIO
•The 3 killer capabilities that define successful digital leadership
•Where will the digital leaders come from? How can a business be confident it has the right talent & leadership models in place to deliver its future strategy?
Who Should Attend?
This international conference is aimed at all business and IT professionals involved in technology, innovation, HR and skills management.

National eHealth Summit
Carton House, Co Kildare
Our healthcare system is one of the most technology dependent parts of our economy and yet, one of the most primitive.
It is over 18 months since the publication of the National eHealth Strategy. But, while the framework may now be in place, changing organisational culture and the habits of a lifetime can be a long and laborious task. So, what has been the reaction and progress on the ground? Do our health professionals still very much rely on the old pen and clipboard or are they successfully and efficiently moving into the digital age?
The inaugural National eHealth Summit in 2014 focused on the framework, but this year, we focus on adoption i.e. are the key stakeholders buying in to the National eHealth Strategy and moving away from paper based to technology based solutions? And, if not, why not? And, if not, how can we convince them of the merits of making the transition?
The 2014 Inaugural National eHealth Summit provided a unique forum that brought together the main stakeholders of the ehealth ecosystem to discuss and debate the critical issues in making Ireland’s National eHealth Strategy a reality. Enthusiastically received by the industry, feedback was overwhelmingly positive. And as organisers, iQuest and The Sunday Business Post, wish to grow and develop the summit this year to provide attendees with a fully comprehensive, educational and enriching conference experience.
2014 Attendees included delegates from:
Department of Health, The Beacon Hospital, Health Service Executive, Servisource Healthcare, Performation Ireland & UK, Rotunda Hospital, Trinity College Dublin, Kefron, VHI Healthcare, Cerner Ireland, Temple St. Children’s University Hospital, Oracle, AIB Corporate Banking, Barrington’s Hospital, Uniphar Group, Abbey Healthcare, i360 Medical, Age Friendly Ireland, National Epilepsy Programme, Wincanton Records Management, Accenture, Deloitte & Touche, GlaxoSmithKline, Bon Secours Health System, Grant Thornton, Medray Imaging Systems, Northgate Public Services, McKesson, National Disability Authority, Business Information Systems, Enterprise Ireland, National Ambulance Service, NUIG, Ace Health, Health & Social Care Board Northern Ireland, Gartner, Irish Blood Transfusion Service, McLernon Computers, Mater Private Hospital, Janssen, Microsoft Ireland, Bearing Point, AssessPatients.com, Irish College of General Practitioners, Kainos, TEKenable, Helix Heal th and Boehringer Ingelheim Ireland……..
If you work in health IT or have a close interest in the use of information in healthcare, eHealth 2015 is a must-go event for you. In addition, we also expect to see healthcare leaders, managers and clinicians involved in the design and delivery of services and those involved in the specification, procurement, management and front line use of information systems such as:
• Directors and heads of IT and ICT
• Information security directors
• Heads of information governance
• Chief Information Officers (CIOs)
• Healthcare managers
• Data centre managers
• Hospital managers & CEOs
• Finance directors
• Clinical & medical directors
• eHealth & telehealth care project managers
• Private healthcare sector
• Health policy makers
• Those with an interest in healthcare interoperability
As healthcare is about to enter the digital era, join your peers for a day of stimulating insights, ideas and analysis on how technology is changing healthcare and applying its uses for the enhancement of service delivery and patient care.
