Searching for an alternative approach to modernise your IT strategy without passing costs on to customers?

Utility companies are being pressured to upgrade their mission-critical systems, and at the same time, face resistance from politicians and the public when it’s suggested that customer bills should increase to fund much needed modernisation.

What if there was a win-win for you and for your customers?

The key is to transform your IT systems from a cost centre to a profit centre, empowering CIOs to reduce the operational cost of maintaining existing systems while increasing the funds available for innovation.

Join Coy Wright, VP, Energy, Utilities, & Resources Industry Solutions, Rimini Street and Dave Keating, experienced broadcaster, journalist and moderator, for an intriguing discussion focused on ways to drive investment in IT modernisation while reducing expenditure.

Be celebrated as a champion of modernisation by presenting your strategic vision and value of IT to the board

Since its foundation in 2005, Rimini Street has helped utilities clients in the UK optimise their existing core applications and achieve their unique business goals. With differentiated, responsive software support from Rimini Street that derives greater ROI for the organisation, leading CIOs have learned and celebrated that resources and funds can be unlocked and re-directed toward innovation.

Join us for a discussion about the options utility CIOs have, and how IT can truly become a winning profit centre. The session will include topics such as:

  1. Tackling the vendor mindset. Major software vendors are pushing their customers to adopt the cloud. Some are even forcing it by imposing deadlines to cut off full support. And if that doesn’t work, they’ll often raise the threat of software audits. How should you expertly and confidently navigate your vendor’s strategy and get to the best for your organisation?
  2. Building the business case for change. You need to demonstrate to the board that IT modernisation will deliver value and appease growing stakeholder frustrations. The question is, how should a CIO assess the merits of moving to the cloud or staying put? Do you know your true range of options? How can you evaluate time-to-value to understand where precious resources should be targeted? We can help demystify.
  3. Why innovating at the edges is a more effective approach for utility companies. Maintain your existing core applications, optimise them, and focus resources on introducing best-of-breed innovation at the edge. Why? Because this approach is more effective for utility companies in gaining greater flexibility while being more affordable and nimble for industry inflections.

Join Coy Wright, VP, Energy, Utilities, & Resources Industry Solutions, Rimini Street and Dave Keating, experienced broadcaster, journalist and moderator, and learn how focusing on IT strategies will provide you with a smart path forward to positioning the strategic value of IT to the board and be seen as a champion of modernisation.
