IBM at CloudExpo
Tuesday, June 6, 2017, Keynotes
Michael Maximilien, Research Scientist, Architect, Engineer, IBM
In this talk we motivate why realizing the full potential of the cloud and social data requires artificial intelligence. By mixing Cloud Foundry and the rich set of Watson services, IBM’s Bluemix is the best cloud operating system for enterprises today, providing rapid development and deployment of applications that can take advantage of the rich catalog of Watson services to help drive insights from the vast trove of private and public data available to enterprises.
Jason McGee, IBM Fellow, VP and CTO, Cloud Platform, Containers/Blueprints Tribe Leader
We all know that end users experience experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps—failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers’ relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices–not doing so will be a path to eventual business failure. The real and more difficult question, in developing microservices-based applications, is this: what’s the best combination of cloud services and tools to use to get the right results in the specific business situation in which you need to deliver what your end users’ want. Considering that new streams IoT data are already raising the stakes on what end users expect in their mobile experiences. the versatility and power of cloud services is going to become the key to innovation that’s meaningful in the market. Join Jason McGee for his talk on developing the right microservices given the pressures of your market and the options provided by cloud technologies.

Zerto on IBM Cloud offer VMware and Microsoft customers simple, automated recovery of on-premise VMware and Microsoft workloads to IBM Cloud data centers.
In this break out session you will learn how to meet RTO in minutes and RPO in seconds using Zerto on IBM Cloud. We will specifically focus on a Cloud Provider and IBM/Zerto Partner use case who can utilize IBM Cloud to build out their own multi-tenant DRaaS offering by converting their capital expense into operating expense. We’ll dive into the benefits of the solution for VMware and Microsoft environments and show you why to leverage this solution for ensuring consistency, performance, reliability, and ease of recovery for your critical workloads.
Technical Session Track 3 (APIs | Cloud Security | Mobility)
Apache OpenWhisk on IBM Bluemix provides a powerful and flexible environment for deploying cloud-native applications driven by data, message, and API call events. Learn why serverless architectures are attractive for many emerging cloud workloads and when you should consider OpenWhisk for your next project. Then get started on Bluemix with three sample applications covering how the OpenWhisk programming model enables you both to implement REST APIs and process non-HTTP events at scale.
Technical Track 3 – APIs, Cloud Security, Mobility
IBM helps FinTechs and financial services companies build and monetize cognitive-enabled financial services apps quickly and at scale.
