Social Media, Explosion of data, Analytics. It’s enough to drive most enterprises straight to the Edge! Well, if it technology is driving you to the edge, or maybe even over the Edge, hopefully attending Edge 2013 will help you take a few steps away from the edge.
All kidding aside, Edge 2013 will help employees, at all levels, and their organizations understand how new approaches can help coordinate IT infrastructures in order to maximize business outcomes. For instance, A recent Study(1) indicates that CEOs identify technology as the most important factor impacting their organization and customer insights have become a critical investment area. Obviously, tightly integrating business processes and requirements with social media, mobile and analytics will help organizations respond faster to client demands, market shifts and competitive threats. During the Edge 2013 conference many of our sessions will explain how any organization can accomplish their business goals and objectives through this type of approach.
Many of our executives will chair sessions that will demonstrate the power of big data and introduce a comprehensive approach to manage IT infrastructure that enables a diverse set of services to run on common, heterogeneous infrastructure. The beauty of this approach is clients will be able to create and to deliver real business value and unlock critical insights that can lead to improvements in customer service, responsiveness and competitiveness.
The 4.5 day event will help answer questions around storage, growth, and unlocking insights from big data and secure critical information. Over 350 technical sessions will be held along with the labs that will cater to audiences ranging from novices to experts. The idea around the labs is to help them test the latest technology. (More details around the various sessions can be found at their website.)
Also at Edge 2013, you will be exposed to many sessions that discuss new era, and approach to computing that can help you stay on the leading edge of your industry. Sessions led by Jacqueline Woods, Vice President of Marketing, Software Defined Environment will help you understand how our clients are embracing new approaches to achieve their business imperatives while removing barriers hindering success.
You can find the details below around the various topics which will be discussed at Edge2013. More comprehensive information around all sessions is available here. Please continue to visit our blog site during Edge to receive daily updates and reviews.
Hopefully, after attending the show you’ll be able to step away from the edge ---- with confidence!
