News Facts:

  • Second Innovation Leadership Summit attracts CIO and Innovation Leaders from across the country
  • CIO speakers include: Aviva, EDF Energy, News UK, Provident Financial Group and NHS Digital
  • Event to take place on 13th September in King’s Place, London

London, U.K., 14th August 2017 – Amido, a vendor-agnostic, independent technical consultancy specialising in assembling and integrating proven cloud technologies, is the headline sponsor for the respected Horizon Business Innovation Leadership Summit in London on Wednesday 13th September. The summit brings together CIOs and CTOs across all industry sectors to discuss the wealth of disruptive technologies available in the era of digital transformation.

This year’s theme focuses on integration and collaboration and aims to draw a healthy alliance between executives who desire a forum in which to share ideas, inspire thought leadership and recount successfully implemented digital stories.

Chris Gray, Technical Director at Amido, adds: “We are experts in assembling and integrating vendor-agnostic cloud-based solutions with a key focus on integration of digital platforms. We know data and we understand the needs of the CIOs across each sector. It makes sense for us to sponsor an innovation summit because we help leaders to achieve their innovative ideas through the smart use of agile technology, without vendor lock-ins and all the red tape. A forum like this is invaluable in this digitally disruptive marketplace given that there is so much choice; so to be able to listen to your esteemed colleagues aids the decision-making process and stimulates vision.”

The Innovation Leadership Summit takes place before Amido and Janrain run a series of European Workshops on GDPR readiness and compliance, starting in London on the Wednesday 27th September.  With less than a year to go until the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force across the European Union, nearly a third of UK organisations fear they will not be compliant in time. Following Amido’s own GDPR Readiness Assessment launch in July, the collaboration with Janrain will help expose executives to every element related to a customer’s Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and how to mitigate the risks associated with holding this form of data.

Amido has a proven track record in cloud-first design and transformation, delivering solutions on-time and within budget across all sectors, including: financial services, retailers like ASOS, media companies, government and public-sector bodies. Amido’s work with them ensures that the technology utilises existing technologies, which has enabled Amido to become an integral cloud partner on digital transformation projects that deliver resilience at scale, flexibility for the future and differentiation of customer experience.
