"I emigrated from Shanghai to San Francisco and worked very hard and passionately to become an entrepreneur. I am truly humbled and honored for this recognition and to receive the Silicon Valley Entrepreneur of the Year Award. From my personal experience, I believe that immigration is a key factor in adding great value to the amazing talent pool in the Silicon Valley. As a result, today the Bay Area is home to the world's leading innovation hub with the greatest technology companies, universities and advanced research laboratories all contained within a 50-mile radius," said Ms. Weili Dai, Co-Founder of Marvell. "I am very proud and fortunate to have co-founded Marvell 18 years ago. As one of the top five fabless semiconductor companies in the world, we are very proud to support our global customers and partners for their success in empowering consumers around the world with access to information and knowledge for a better life. I'd like to thank and dedicate this award to our global Marvell family for their effort and contributions. To me, this is a team success."

Founded in 1917, CIE/USA is one of the oldest and most prestigious Chinese-American engineering associations in the United States. The objective of CIE/USA is to promote communication and the interchange of information among engineers and scientists in the various fields of engineering science who are interested in the wellbeing of the Chinese engineering community in the United States and abroad. It has seven chapters in the United States, including the San Francisco Bay Area chapter.

"Ms. Dai's entrepreneurship, professionalism and strong business leadership has driven the growth and success of Marvell, a leading world-class technology company that now employs thousands of engineers around the world. A first-generation Asian American, her achievements are amplified by her ambition and initiative. Ms. Dai is an exemplary businesswoman and technology trailblazer, and that is why we have selected her as the CIE's Entrepreneur of the Year," said John Y. Xie, Ph.D., chairman of the board, CIE/USA-SF.

Ms. Dai is one of the most successful women entrepreneurs in the world today.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner is Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., will discuss the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conduct a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
