Reissuing the release to remove the Google Ventures boilerplate.
The corrected release reads:
JENNIFER JONES TO INTERVIEW DAVID KRANE, GENERAL PARTNER OF GOOGLE VENTURES
IBF board member and award-winning marketing expert Jennifer Jones, CEO of Jennifer Jones & Partners, to interview Krane at IBF’s Corporate Venturing and Innovation Partnering Conference, Newport Beach, Feb. 13
It’s safe to say that Google flows through David Krane’s veins as much as anyone working at the Internet giant. Having joined the senior leadership team in 2000, he helped grow Google from a small startup to a multi-billion dollar, industry-leading enterprise.
Google’s unique culture and broad goal of organizing the world’s information has spawned an equally unique and vibrant independent venture arm, where Krane is a general partner.
As Krane blogged recently, Google Ventures has been growing across all metrics: last year it boosted its annual investment level to $300 million, increased its portfolio size to 150 companies, and grew its team to 60 people.
The corporate venturing arm last year invested the biggest chunks of it money in mobile and consumer Internet technologies. But it also invested significantly in commerce, Big Data, life sciences and energy startups.
Where will Google Ventures focus its investment dollars next? Join Jennifer Jones, an IBF advisory board member and founder and CEO of Jennifer Jones & Partners, an award-winning global marketing firm for corporate venture capital and venture/private equity firms, as she sits down with Krane to discuss Google Ventures’ uniquely hands-on approach to fostering startups, its educational initiatives and its goals for 2013 and beyond. The fireside chat will take place Feb. 13 at 9:30AM at IBF’s 15th annual Corporate Venturing and Innovation Partnering Conference at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, Calif., Feb. 11-13.
The gathering unites 300+ C-level innovation officers, technology officers, information officers, and strategy officers. Additionally, the event gathers corporate venturing investors, senior level corporate development executives, corporate M&A professionals, corporate new business development executives, venture capitalists, private equity investors, institutional investors, investment bankers, analysts, technology transfer experts, licensing executives, corporate counsel, CTOs, CIOs, CEOs and CFOs of emerging growth companies.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases.

There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that a...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...

Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...
