SID Awards Display Week 2019 Business Track to Display Supply Chain Consultants

SID/DSCC Business Track to Include Business, Investor, Foldable Display Market Focus, and Automotive Display Market Focus Conferences.

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Society for Information Display (SID) has awarded the organization and execution of its highly popular series of business conferences during its annual Display Week conference and exhibition to Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) for the 3rd consecutive year. SID's 2019 Display Week will take place from May 12-17 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, Calif.

According to SID Business Track Chair John Jacobs, "We are pleased to award the 2019 Business Track to DSCC. They have delivered an outstanding program in the past two years and we are confident they will deliver another valuable program in 2019 to meet the future needs of our members."

DSCC Founder & CEO Ross Young commented: "We are delighted to organize the Business Track again for Display Week 2019. We consider Display Week the pre-eminent event in the display industry calendar, and we look forward to providing an innovative Business Track program addressing the critical topics faced by the display industry. We are excited to introduce a 1-day event this year dedicated to foldable displays which have tremendous growth potential."

The Business Track will consist of:

  • SID/DSCC Business Conference on Monday, May 13th
  • SID/DSCC Investor's Conference on Tuesday, May 14th
  • SID/DSCC Foldable Display Market Focus Conference on Wednesday, May 15th
  • SID/DSCC Automotive Display Market Focus Conference on Wednesday, May 15th

Based on evaluation of the 2018 Business Track, and in response to attendee feedback and continuing development of industry trends, there will be some changes for the 2019 event:

  • The annual SID Business Conference has consistently drawn large crowds and influential speakers who have provided valuable insights on the display market outlook. Leading industry executives want to use this event to create a high-profile statement about the future of the industry, and so for 2019, we will bring back the supply chain keynote session. The Business Conference will also include presentations from leading industry analysts from a variety of firms and sessions devoted to TVs, Smartphones, and emerging technologies.
  • The Investor Conference will continue with the format successfully introduced in 2018, as a full day event. The Investor Conference will feature presentations from market and sell-side analysts on important trends in the display industry and which segments and companies are likely to outperform. It will also feature a panel session including private equity and venture capital executives on what they are looking for from potential investments in private display companies. Private display-related companies seeking funding or secondary financing will then give short presentations to an audience consisting largely of buy-side, private equity and venture capital investors. The event will prioritize companies participating in Display Week's i-Zone exhibits.
  • New for 2019, the Foldable Display Market Focus Conference will cover both technical and market issues surrounding the next big innovation area for the display industry. Foldable displays are critical to the growth of the OLED industry and present challenges in technology development, manufacturing, designing and marketing devices. The conference will include the viewpoints of prominent industry analysts and perspectives from companies supplying innovative material solutions and device designs to make foldable displays a reality.
  • To better meet the needs of DisplayWeek attendees, the Automotive Display Market Focus Conference will be coupled with a special track in the technical symposium to provide an enhanced, integrated program for industry professionals focused on this growing sector. The conference will address the exciting opportunities offered by the shift to semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles with perspectives from key industry analysts, material suppliers, display manufacturers, Tier 1 automotive suppliers, and leading automotive OEMs, and will cover both existing and emerging flat panel display applications and the opportunities and challenges in head-up displays (HUD).

There will also be networking receptions after each day of the Business Track to enhance networking opportunities.

More information on the agenda, speaking opportunities and sponsorship will soon be available on the DSCC web site at http://www.displaysupplychain.com/events.html.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too.

When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
