Cloud, analytics, mobile and social are transforming the world and bringing opportunities to business. This is an incredible moment. But many organizations have not been able to harness the value of their investments in this space. We need a new IT model, designed for the new era.
It comes down to the fact that infrastructure matters. The right infrastructure helps deliver real-time insights so you can make better business decisions, faster. It delivers performance efficiently, optimizes IT resources and is easy to consume. It’s also scalable and secure, providing safe, shared access to all relevant information no matter where that information resides.
All of that sounds great. But, as I often hear clients ask, how do you make sure you’re choosing the right infrastructure for your business?
It doesn’t have to be hard. Coming up on May 19-23 at Edge2014 in Las Vegas, you can tap into IBM’s point of view on the right choices for your business – formed by what we’ve learned in over 20,000 client engagements globally, in every country, every market. Edge2014 is the premier event for infrastructure innovation, where leading worldwide industry experts will discuss why IT infrastructure matters and how organizations can realize competitive advantage building their cloud, analytics, mobile and social initiatives optimized by IBM infrastructure innovations. Over the course of the event, you can:
- Gain insights into key cloud, analytics, mobile and social challenges, concerns and solutions
- Understand why these are relevant today from economic, technology and business perspective
- Hear real-world case studies from top IBM partners
- Learn how to ensure security of your data and applications
- Develop strategy to defend your business from internal and external threats
- Meet experts to share your experience and establish new areas of collaboration
We’ll also focus on how IBM Smarter Storage and IBM Software Defined Storage solutions can optimize your big data economics. In fact, we recently held a signature event – Fast Data Forum – where senior executives from IBM, clients and influencers, gathered to talk about new data innovations transforming industries.
