The whole world of business is changing in historic and profound ways – disruptive technology, government’s role, and the balance of global economic power are shifting massively – and it’s happening fast! While political winds may blow toward restrictions on trade and immigration, the trends powering the friction-free economy are technological and going strong. Competing and winning in business today requires extraordinary leadership at every level of the organization. Colvin has a unique perspective rooted in long-standing relationships with the world’s top leaders in business and government. He knows what they’re seeing, thinking, and planning and reveals how they’re leading, making choices, and responding to today’s challenges in ways that others can learn from. A unifying theme as the economy transforms is that in almost every business, barriers to entry are coming down. Geoff’s message is optimistic and energizing: Opportunity is more widely available than ever. Every organization, and every person, can possess the 21st Century’s most valuable assets – openness to new ideas, ingenuity, and imagination.

Banking Session: Information Sharing and the Rise of Financial Services Eco-systems – Are you in (or are you out?)

Moderator: Laura Crozier, Global Industry Leader, Software AG

(Recommended for Banking, Securities and Insurance Industries)

Some call it the API economy. Some called it Hyper-Connectivity. In banking, it’s known as Open Bank. Even if there isn’t agreement on a name, most agree that sharing data with an eco-system of trusted partners is the future of Financial Services. Financial service providers are now asking themselves tough questions: How will I digitally transform (and scale) an IT architecture that is designed to secure (not share) data? How will the eco-system change my relationship with my customers? What do I want my bank’s role to be in the ecosystem? In this session, attendees will hear about new and changing business models being used to address these challenges.

Retail Session: ‘Amazonization’ – How to Survive in the Age of Amazon?

Moderator: Oliver Guy, Global Industry Leader, Retail, Software AG
(Recommended for Retail & Communications Industries)

Amazon and other digital pioneers pose a huge threat to B2C industries. Customers are embracing digitally-driven channels for everything from buying a pair of jeans to watching a movie to ordering a pizza. How will ‘traditional’ B2C companies survive? Simple. Abandon “tradition”. In this session, hear from B2C innovative firms and see how they are responding to this challenge.

1:30 pm to 3:30 pm: GOVERNMENT DIGITAL SESSIONS Click for description

Part 1: Mastering Your Government Data – Beyond Navigating Data Lakes and Streams

Moderator: Francis Rose, Broadcaster and Host, Government Matters on Washington (WJLA, ABC7)


  • Thomas Sasala, Chief Data Officer, Army
  • Mark Krzysko, Deputy Director for Enterprise Information, Department of Defense, OUSD(AT&L)/ARA
  • Michael Peckham, Data Act PMO Executive Director, HHS
  • Chris Borneman, Vice President, Software AG Government Solutions

While information offers a lot of benefits, it can be challenging, frustrating, and expensive. Building the right infrastructure to access and capture data isn’t simple. And then you need to be able to convert it into insight. Extracting insights from data used to be the domain of the IT department but more often functional leaders want to be masters of their own data.

Where do IT and functional leaders start to aggregate and analyze more information to support better decision-making collaboratively? What if your agency doesn’t have a CDO to bridge the gap between IT and functional teams? How can you enable more effective business process automation, better understand citizens, and provide more effective mission support? Join this expert panel dialogue to learn how agency data professionals are taking steps that result in “quick wins” towards an effective future data management strategy. (Recommended for Public Sector organizations)

Part 2: Securely Enhance the Value of APIs for Government

Moderator: Francis Rose, Broadcaster and Host, Government Matters on Washington (WJLA, ABC7)


  • Joe Paiva, CIO, Int’l Trade
  • Stephanie Payne, Executive Director, Digital Services, DHS (Invited)
  • Param Soni, Deputy Administrator and Deputy Director, U.S. Department of Labor
  • Rajesh Vasisht, Principal Consultant, Software AG Government Solutions

While many agencies already use Application Program Interfaces (APIs) to share data with the public and comply with Open Data mandates, APIs also enable new uses for current information that can deliver greater citizen responsiveness and operational effectiveness. These changes are making it increasingly important for federal, state, and local government agencies to develop and execute successful API strategies.

Bring your experience and questions to this interactive session to understand how your API strategies can be implemented to manage information at scale, from diverse systems and platforms, within and among agency computing environments and mobile initiatives. Seasoned professionals will explain how to enhance operational effectiveness and increasing security to ensure APIs are effective and protected.

8:30 am to 2:00 pm - Preparing the Government for Digital Transformation Click to download presentation

Join us to learn how our solutions are helping in the public sector! This daylong session will give you visibility into solutions and ideas to implement at financial, public safety, healthcare and other agencies. 

Software AG´s Innovation Tour stops in Washington, D.C. and offers a whole day to learn more about:

  • How to break down IT siloes and modernize legacy systems: Your agency is being driven by the need to innovate, reduce costs and manage risks. With your large investments in applications, you are asking how you can maximize your RoA (Return on Assets) for these applications within a modern, integrated 21st-Century digital architecture. You can’t get there in one big leap, and you don’t want to leave your investments behind. We’ll look at solutions and services which can help you advance along the modernization maturity curve in a stepwise way, ultimately leading to a millennial-ready Digital Business Platform that will continue to deliver important value alongside new capabilities like streaming and predictive analytics, IoT devices and dynamic, low-code apps.
  • Leveraging dashboards and analytics for better citizen engagement: RBC uses a combination of Software AG’s Adabas SQL Gateway and Mashzone to create a near real time, interactive dashboard of critical information. Nikolai Chmatov will explain how RBC exposed current mainframe data to create an “Active” data warehouse, using Adabas SQL Gateway.
  • DevOps – Agile Development Lifecycle:DevOps is the practice of IT Operations and Development participating together in the entire service lifecycle; from design through the development process to production implementation. DevOps is a philosophy, not a method, or framework, or body of knowledge, or *specific* vendor’s tool. Understand how DevOPS is changing the way applications are developed and maintained.
  • Interagency Interoperability - Connecting agencies with agencies: State and local governments that depend on legacy mainframe technology for core processes are facing daunting challenges as they look to the future. While FORTRAN, COBOL and green screens are clearly the wave of the past, the best path forward in terms of cost, risk and smoothness of transition is not so clear to most CIOs. Fortunately, technology that can both leverage the past and launch the future exists.
  • Hear what A&N 2050+ can do for your organization and agency: Bruce Beaman of Software AG Product Marketing will discuss future directions for the Adabas and Natural 2050+ vision in technical detail.

Don´t miss the chance to meet Software AG´s public sector experts and to exchange information and experiences with your peers.
