Opportunities Like the 2014 Customer Solutions Expo Don’t Come around Very Often

When organizers of SpeechTEK, CRM Evolution, and Customer Service Experience decided to co-locate their individual conferences, it was inevitable that a single exhibition of customer service and speech recognition solutions providers would emerge. The result is the Customer Solutions Expo, August 18-20 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

Proving that the whole is indeed larger than the sum of the individual parts, the Customer Solutions Expo puts all of the leading sales, marketing, customer service and speech recognition solutions providers in one place, creating an ideal opportunity for C-level executives, industry pioneers and technology gurus to meet and discuss new products, services, applications and innovations.

The Customer Solutions Expo features companies from around the world in a single showcase that allows attendees to compare technologies and solutions from multiple vendors and determine which are best suited for their particular needs.

“We have put together an extremely comprehensive showcase of speech recognition and customer service solutions providers,” says David Myron, editorial director of CRM and Speech Technology magazines, organizers of the co-located conferences. “Opportunities to meet and interact with this many solutions providers in one place just don’t come around very often. This year we are concentrating on how to automate interactions between business and customers using the latest technologies.”

Exhibits are open to the general public Monday, August 18, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 19, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Wednesday, August 20, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Admission to the exhibit hall is $35. SpeechTEK, CRM Evolution and Customer Service Experience conference attendees receive free admittance.

The co-located conferences bring together a broad range of experts in speech technology and customer relationship management for a 3-day examination of the latest innovations and strategies for customer engagement. Together the three conferences feature more than 120 strategic and tactical customer sessions covering all of the major areas of interest in customer relationship management.

Information about each of the conferences and the Expo is available at the following websites: www.speechtek.com, www.crmevolution.com, www.custservexperience.com, and www.customersolutionsexpo.com.

“Oh, dev is dev and ops is ops, and never the twain shall meet.” With apoloies to Rudyard Kipling and all of his fans, this describes the early state of the two sides of DevOps. Yet the DevOps approach is demanded by cloud computing, as the speed, flexibility, and scalability in today's so-called “Third Platform” must not be hindered by the traditional limitations of software development and deployment. A recent report by Gartner, for example, says that 25% of Global 2000 companies will b...
Big Data is amazing, it's life changing and yes it is changing how we see our world. Big Data, however, can sometimes be too big. Organizations that are not amassing massive amounts of information and feeding into their decision buckets, smaller data that feeds in from customer buying patterns, buying decisions and buying influences can be more useful when used in the right way. In their session at Big Data Expo, Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, and Ian Khan, Global Strategic Positi...
JFrog on Thursday announced that it has added Docker support to Bintray, its distribution-as-a-service (DaaS) platform. When combined with JFrog’s Artifactory binary repository management system, organizations can now manage Docker images with an end-to-end solution that supports all technologies. The new version of Bintray allows organizations to create an unlimited number of private Docker repositories, and through the use of fast Akamai content delivery networks (CDNs), it decreases the dow...
More organizations are embracing DevOps to realize compelling business benefits such as more frequent feature releases, increased application stability, and more productive resource utilization.

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises a...
Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data.

The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing ...
The speed of product development has increased massively in the past 10 years. At the same time our formal secure development and SDL methodologies have fallen behind. This forces product developers to choose between rapid release times and security. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Murray, Director of Cyber Security Consulting and Assessment at GE Healthcare, examined the problems and presented some solutions for moving security into the DevOps lifecycle to ensure that we get fast AND ...
After a couple of false starts, cloud-based desktop solutions are picking up steam, driven by trends such as BYOD and pervasive high-speed connectivity. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, cut through the hype and the acronyms, and discussed the emergence of full-featured cloud workspaces that do for the desktop what cloud infrastructure did for the server. He also discussed VDI vs DaaS, implementation strategies and evaluation criteria.
