Featured CLOUD CONNECT CONFERENCE SESSIONS
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 29 – FRIDAY, MAY 1
Cloud Connect will explore how the Cloud fundamentally changes enterprise computing and the roles of CIOs and IT leaders.
Keynote - Beyond the Cloud: Technology and Business in a Composable Future
During the 1st Era of computing, applications were anchored in time and place with software written for specific platforms and scheduled to perform work when needed. We’re now in the midst of the 2nd Era, where cloud application software is increasingly decoupled from underlying physical infrastructures, is run globally, and responds to events as needed. Jonathan Murray (@Adamathus) calls the 3rd Era of Computing ‘The Metaform - The platform of Everything'.(http://www.adamalthus.com/blog/2015/01/08/the-metaform-the-platform-of-everything/) In this era beyond the cloud, code will once and for all be liberated from the constraints of time and place, opening the door to a real-time, insight-driven, composable future. Murray will outline the broad implications of this composable future, where businesses unlock fully the value of their core capabilities and new businesses are increasingly constructed from parts available from a global service marketplace. Murray will discuss the technological, operational, and strategic challenges enterprises will need to overcome to survive and profit from this coming transformation.
Speaker: Jonathan Murray, Founding Partner - Innovia Strategies and Founder n.flex.n Software
Keynote - Composable, Componentized, Control...Is Your Cloud Strategy Keeping Up?
The explosion of microservices, agile CI/CD and RESTful APIs is creating a new model for building highly distributed applications and launching them quickly. At the same time, systems of record and governance models will not disappear overnight. How is your organization balancing these competing demands? Is your hybrid strategy supported by management capabilities that span a wide spectrum of host modalities? Jared examines 5 must-solve questions as you consider the future of your most critical application workloads.
Speaker: Jared Wray, CTO, CenturyLink Cloud
Keynote: "Get Out of My Way”: What Developers Really Want
Your developers are asking for real cloud because they want easy, fast and predictable access to resources so they can deliver applications and features at scale faster. How do you enable those developers to move at the speed that the business is asking? Striking the balance of control, security, and visibility for IT teams is the challenge most organizations face today. In this talk, you’ll hear what thousands of developers have told Scott and Niki. You'll leave with ideas to help change your mindset and break the glass required to give your developers what they need to help your business move faster.
Speaker: Rafi Khardalian, Director, Metacloud Engineering & Operations, Cisco
