DevOps Summit Power Panel | Is DevOps Really Changing How IT Is Working?

At DevOps Summit, panelists to discuss delivering IT solutions faster & leveraging technology tools to add value for business

FREE Registration to First Global DevOps Event!

While there are many ways to define DevOps, the goal of the concept is to be able to deliver IT solutions faster, leveraging several technology tools to add value for business. Cloud companies have demonstrated how they can manage massive pools of IT infrastructure, giving the developer a very flexible resource pool that they can leverage and IT is eager to do the same.

In this Power Panel at 2nd DevOps Summit moderated by Cloud Expo Tech Chair Larry Carvalho, Bernard Golden, VP, Strategy at ActiveState; Andi Mann, VP of Strategic Solutions at CA Technologies; John Willis, VP of Customer Enablement at Stateless Networks; Randy Bias, Co-Founder and CTO of Cloudscaling; and Vasu Sankhavaram, Chief Strategist of DevOps and Cross Portfolio Architecture Alignment within HP Software, will discuss this movement that is delivering frictionless IT to the enterprise.

Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
