IBM’s Dr Kristof Kloeckner to Keynote at Cloud Expo New York

At Cloud Expo, Dr Kloeckner to discuss how cloud is unleashing software-driven innovation

In a world of ever-accelerating business cycles and fast-changing client expectations, the cloud increasingly serves as a growth engine and a path to new business models. Dynamic clouds enable businesses to continuously reinvent themselves, adapting their business processes, their service and software delivery and their operations to achieve speed-to-market and quick response to customer feedback. The cloud opens up new possibilities for businesses to continuously deliver software-driven innovation and enables new ways of collaboration between an extended group of stakeholders, including business leaders, developers, operations as well customers and partners.

In his Lunch Keynote at 14th Cloud Expo, Dr Kristof Kloeckner, General Manager at Rational Software, IBM, will discuss the capabilities of BlueMix, IBM's cloud platform, with integrated DevOps services. With BlueMix, developers can compose applications in a tight feedback loop, using a wealth of IBM, third-party and open source services and APIs, deploy and scale with infrastructure services from SoftLayer and code with the confidence based on a foundation of open standards.
