Knowledge transfer: discover the Think experience

What can you expect from the upcoming Think conference? Last year at Think 2019 IBM outlined the latest compute and storage technology breakthroughs, plus developer tools and related skills that will enable you to explore how to apply the lessons learned from the early adopters in your industry.

Here’s a small sample of the recorded sessions from Think 2019:

The Future of Infrastructure: From Hybrid Multi-cloud to IT Talent

Technology forces and innovation accelerators are transforming businesses at an unprecedented rate — from AI and machine learning to blockchain and quantum computing. Looking to the future, the winners will be those who make the right modern infrastructure decisions today. Hear from a panel of the most influential leaders in technology and business as they explore the future of IT infrastructure.

An Agile and Resilient Platform in a Multi-cloud Infrastructure

Creating competitive advantage in digital business requires new levels of agility within the business and from IT. This session, hosted by Ross Mauri, General Manager of IBM Z and LinuxONE, shows how digital continues to drive transformation in business and in IT. Ross discusses IBM Z’s role in getting the best from modern digital workloads as part of a multicloud infrastructure.

The Three Fundamentals of Quantum Computing

Quantum computing takes advantage of the laws of quantum mechanics found in nature and represents a fundamental change from classical information processing. For two years now, IBM has enabled more than 100,000 people around the globe to access quantum computers for learning, research, and tackling new problems. While still early, we believe it’s just a matter of time until we start using these devices to solve certain problems better than we can today.

Storage for the Data-Driven AI World

Data is the driving force behind successful businesses. Ed Walsh, General Manager of IBM Storage, explains how you can derive business value from oceans of data using analytics and AI technologies on a hybrid multicloud infrastructure that is flexible, agile, and built with modern technologies. In this session, learn how clients of all sizes — early disruptors and incumbents alike — are building IT infrastructure to put data to work.
