The theme of the conference, 'Transform', was highlighted through Dutton's comments that IT as it used to be done is dead.

"The ability to stop doing things that are clearly not serving the business seems to be so hard for IT. Good companies are saying throw it out, virtualise it," he said. "Old IT can't exist anymore, it's inappropriate for the huge amounts of data we're seeing coming through, and when you add the Internet of Things to that, it's only going to get bigger."
