“3 Bears” of Privileged Identity Management
Brian Anderson, CMO, BeyondTrust
Goldilocks’ quest for the perfect temperature of porridge, the best-sized chair and the comfiest bed is very similar to the ongoing IT dilemma of configuring admin rights and achieving “least privilege:” that delicate balance of granting users with enough access to get their work done, while at the same time limiting their access to keep them from getting in trouble.
Join us for this fun and engaging session during which fanciful BeyondTrust Chief Marketing Officer, Brian Anderson, will demonstrate how you can keep good people from doing bad things and how to easily give your team boundaries… not walls. You’ll also discover that least privilege is not just about increasing productivity, but also expertly managing security and compliance, resulting in maximum IT efficiency.

How to add 200 analysts without hiring anyone new
Ted Corbett, Director of Knowledge Management, Seattle Children’s
There’s increasing pressure to use one of your most valuable assets – data – to develop keen insight about how to propel an organization’s success. However, the gap between turning information into insight is wide. This session will describe how Seattle Children’s Hospital, one of the top ten children’s hospitals in the U.S., has effectively bridged this gap by empowering those who know the data best – administrators, executives, clinicians – to own their own data exploration as well as report and dashboard creation. For the business, this has meant faster, more impactful insights that drive revenue opportunities and optimize patient care. For IT, this has meant an end to constant BI requests and the opportunity to focus on what they do best, creating a technology backbone that serves the need of the entire organization. Join this session to understand how you can bridge this insight gap in your organization, whether in the healthcare field or another industry.
Join Ted Corbett, Seattle Children’s Director of Knowledge Management, to discuss how Children’s has leveraged Tableau to meet these needs. Ted has led the business intelligence community at Seattle Children’s for over three years. Prior to joining Children’s, Ted was a Senior Manager in the Business Intelligence practice at Hitachi Consulting where he helped drive business intelligence success at non-healthcare companies like Microsoft, Starbucks, WaMu and Qwest.
