If the hubbub during the networking breakfast at the event’s start was any indication, participants gathered for HPE’s CXO Roundtable Discussion were definitely raring to engage and tackle the topic of disruption.

Leading off the event, Glen Francis, President of CIO Academy Asia observed that while Uber kicked off the ride-hailing landscape, its more recent vehicular acquisitions are further up-ending the status quo for car dealers and manufacturers.  By extension then, other industry sectors may also expect to see further and on-going reverberations from disruptions, which portend challenging and exciting times ahead for IT and business leaders.  But their relative starting points will matter, as different approaches will apply to organisations at different stages of transformation despite commonalities in other respects.

The two keynote speakers from two distinctly different organizations evinced this.  Paul Hadjy, Head of Grab’s IT and Information Security and Bernard Leong, Head of Post Office Network and Digital Services.  Also joining them is HPE’s Application Services and Industry Solutions Practice Leader for APJ Andrew Clarke.
