Journey to Autonomics-Enabled IT is an invitation only group of 20 senior information technology and business leaders from companies in the Greater New York City area who will convene with three simple goals in mind:

  • To learn from each other
  • To network with each other
  • To enjoy a fine lunch
This event will feature an industry panel while everyone faces each other around one hollow square table to maximize interactivity. We will focus on sharing lessons learned from how organizations are incorporating AI to automate their IT infrastructure and operations. Please see the photos below from past roundtable events:
Advances in AI-powered automation, or autonomics, are allowing enterprises to operate leaner, faster and cheaper, all while delivering better business outcomes.
As businesses strain IT and operations resources, and pressure increases to deliver more services faster and with better experiences, forward-thinking IT leaders are turning to autonomics to deliver critical outcomes across IT and business services, business processes and digital growth areas.
Join the roundtable lunch to explore:
  • What can be learned from early adopters?
  • What are the skill sets required in an autonomics-enabled workforce?
  • What are the challenges that lie ahead in your automation journey?
  • What are the expected outcomes and end state vision & beyond for IT autonomics?
