EMC CTO Jeff Nick Keynotes SYS-CON's Virtualization Conference & Expo

The confluence of several mature architectural paradigms with new user-centric paradigms will drive the next generation of IT

How can IT companies manage the information explosion? The confluence of several mature architectural paradigms with new user-centric paradigms will drive the next generation of IT, which will be based on the combination of model-driven architecture and service-oriented architecture applied to applications, information delivery, and IT resources. The agility gained in IT infrastructure coupled with highly configurable, lightweight, "last mile" visualization technologies will dramatically increase the relevance and reactivity of IT to the business. In his keynote presentation, Jeff Nick discusses the impact of service orientation on IT infrastructure; the relevant architectures, technologies, and standards; and the approaches for utilizing these tools and their importance to the business.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
In an era of historic innovation fueled by unprecedented access to data and technology, the low cost and risk of entering new markets has leveled the playing field for business. Today, any ambitious innovator can easily introduce a new application or product that can reinvent business models and transform the client experience. In their Day 2 Keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Mercer Rowe, IBM Vice President of Strategic Alliances, and Raejeanne Skillern, Intel Vice President of Data Center Group and G...

Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
