Lisbon Portugal
31 March - 1 April 2014
The GUIDE EXECUTIVE CLUB (GEC) 2014 offers content of
special relevance to CIOs and IT Executives, and this year’s
future-oriented Agenda covers all challenges of their profession today. GSE keeps a watchful eye on the trends of Information Technology, understanding the need of CIOs and IT personnel at all levels to have access to all latest news, and with its GEC event brings essential information and expert analysis on promoting business success directly to participants. The Agenda will help you to increase business value, revenue and results through knowledge-based decisions. The GUIDE EXECUTIVE CLUB is run this year over 1,5-days, concentrated upon providing world-class opportunities for CIOs to proactively guide their businesses to further success, as of now, for tomorrow and beyond. Experts are as always ready to greet you in one-to-one discussions, and a number of opportunities to network with industry colleagues
are included in the GUIDE EXECUTIVE CLUB’s Agenda for 31st
March and 1st April 2014 in Lisbon, Portugal. Presentations addressing the future after Cloud Computing, as well as Security and other major topics, delivered by expert speakers from GSE,
IBM, Academia and customers, make up 2014’s solid Agenda.
 Our GUIDE EXECUTIVE CLUB and the Gala Dinner is organized in a club-like atmosphere where CIOs and IT Executives can share their strategies and can expand their personal connections with other like-minded people. The beautiful location of Lisbon, Portugal, is a European centre of culture combining centuries of history with modern progress, and called home by many influential discoverers and thinkers. Our GEC 2014 will fit right in here with its participants and experts from the IT industry. A major goal in Lisbon is to share experiences and provide guidance to the ongoing changes in our IT scenario to ensure that you are able to take the right decisions for the future. The GUIDE EXECUTIVE CLUB event is limited to a maximum of 50
attendees. So act quickly and register for this year’s important
event. See you in Lisbon ! Sincerely Tom Lund President GUIDE SHARE EUROPE
The GUIDE EXECUTIVE CLUB 2014 invites you to attend this one and a half day event developed by GSE for senior IT executives. The event is designed to deliver powerful, content-rich presentations where CIOs can collaborate on business and technology concerns, ranging from the impact of economic conditions to relevant IT trends. Industry experts from IBM, GSE Members, customers and other sources such as universities, gather to give you the latest information, tips and skills for successful business leadership. By way of example, security threats are increasing in number and intensity every year. You need to protect your applications and data from growing threats, but you also need to continue to innovate, embracing business opportunities in mobile, cloud, online commerce and big data. And you need to address these challenges while reducing the complexity of your security infrastructure. To address all of these demands, you need a new approach to security strategy and policy. Today's security leader must understand how to build a security team, what practices to follow and how their organization compares to others in their industry. Cognitive computing is another hot topic. Watson is currently in pilots with leading healthcare and financial services organizations and will be expanding to production-level deployments in new use cases and industries going forward. Getting ready to deploy a Watson solution takes thoughtful planning and selection of where and how to apply its power. Laying the groundwork often involves building strong big data and analytics capabilities which are complementary to Watson itself. Doing so on project-by-project basis ensures that each step is justifiable on its own from a financial and business value perspective and also brings you closer to readiness to apply the transformative power of Watson to your business. Cloud adoption continued to rise in 2013. There are important shifts in why and how Cloud Computing is being used, obstacles to adoption, where cloud decision-making resides within organizations, and how the vendor landscape is changing. The business is driving the revolution, deriving clear benefits from cloud adoption in the form of continuous innovation and business agility to yield competitive advantage. The main topics of this event are:
• CIO hot topics 2014
• 50 years of Mainframe –
 a look into the future
• The future after Cloud • Security –
 what else
• Cognitive Computing –
 Watson state of the art General discussion as well as one-to-one sessions with the speakers are an integral part of the programme and allow you to explore in full the incredible advantages and opportunities made available by Information Technology.
