SAN FRANCISCO, July 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Workato, the leading Enterprise Automation platform and the Systematic Community will host their 2nd annual conference, Business Systems Magic, the largest conference for those who manage the proliferating number of SaaS applications that are critical to today's business initiatives. This year's conference will be held virtually on August 5, 2020. Keynote speakers include Jerry Greenfield, Co-founder, Ben and Jerry's; Kathryn Finney, author, CEO, DigitalUndivided and named to Forbes America's Top 50 Women In Tech; Jazmine Hughes, Editor and Writer, New York Times, and named to Forbes 30 Under 30; Stephen Franchetti, CIO of Slack; Sylvie Veilleux, CIO of Dropbox; and Mark Settle, 7X CIO and Author of the book Truth from the Trenches: A Practical Guide to the Art of IT Management.
This year's conference will focus on addressing the most pressing issues facing Business Technology and Ops professionals in the face of Covid-19. Attendees will learn how leaders crafted their Business Continuity Plans, planned their applications roadmaps, are creating cost-savings as budgets tighten, and adjusting to WFH life.
Defining a profession that is changing the face of IT.
Business Technology leaders are the people charged with rolling out apps, integrations and automations in their companies. New data finds that 94 percent agree or strongly agree that they are the changemakers and drivers of an organization's productivity and innovation, bringing a unique, holistic view of their organization. They act as digital change agents across all business verticals, including finance, HR, CX, and sales.
"Business Technology leaders have been instrumental in guiding companies through digital transformation, and they are even more critical today as they focus on customer success and retention, improving operational efficiency, driving excellence in online marketing and sales, and creating more connected employee experiences," said Vijay Tella, CEO of Workato. "The second Biz Systems Magic provides these professionals with a unique opportunity to come together during these challenging times to trade insights, learn from each other, and to network at a vendor-neutral, peer-driven event."
This year's conference spotlights leaders from luminary companies, such as Atlassian, Slack, Coinbase, Upwork, Uber, and Divvy to share valuable insights on adapting to our new workplace reality and optimizing businesses for recovery and sustainability.
