Systems at Innovate Daily Highlights - Wednesday
Are we having fun yet, maybe a little too much?! We’re over halfway through and there’s still so much yet in store for all of you! We are very excited about tonight’s special event, Foreigner at Seaworld! So, get ready to get nostalgic as we blast you back to the 1980’s in the days of big hair rock n roll! And in case you missed something, here are a few highlights from yesterday:
Tuesday’s Keynote - Right. NOW. Opportunity Accelerated.
Yesterday, IBM proudly presented its first CTO Summit—bringing together the CTOs of Rational, WebSphere, Emerging Technology, and Tivoli to explore how major technology shifts—such as Cloud, Mobile, DevOps—will affect the ways in which we develop and deliver software and Systems Innovation. The session closed by literally scaling the heights with extreme adventurer, charismatic storyteller, and best-selling author of Everest To Arabia, Jamie Clarke. Clarke kept the attendees on the edge of their seat as he showed how decision-making NOW can be the difference between life and death NEXT, when you’re 29,000 feet up the side of Mount Everest.
Yesterday, executives benefited from yet another Systems focused session in the Executive Summit. Entitled "When Technology is Not Enough", this session featured presentations by Bruno Di Giandomenico, Alenia Aermacchi and Thomas P Hannon, Lockheed Martin, along with discussion and insight from Kurt Sand, Rational Software Product Development and Chuck Ratigan, Rational Director of Services Delivery. The focus of the session was on smarter product development success factors over and above things like an integrated toolset, including implementation of best practices and processes and utilization of real-time performance measurement.
Attendees were dazzled with the future direction of our systems and software engineering technology at the Innovate labs yesterday. DOORS.Next Generation and our Systems Optimization Workbench were on display showcasing what is possible! Be sure to come by and check out the future capabilities that may be offered in our products.
OSLC Hospitality Suite
The OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) community has been working hard to contribute to the specifications that are driving easier and greater integration between lifecycle domains and tools. The OSLC Hospitality Suite on Tues night, was a chance for those driving the community forward to meet in person and enjoy a relaxed chat over food drink about OSLC, Linked Data, Lyo, what everyone is wearing at the pool this year (yes they do have a life outside OSLC!). It was also a great opportunity for the OSLC community members to bring along guests to be brainwashed....errr I mean...to be introduced to OSLC and the key players in the community.
Mastering Complexity - Rubics Cube Competition
The competition is fierce throughout the conference as our systems and software engineers flex their muscle (brain and brawn) to show off their skills in solving the complexity of the rubics cube! There was a reported sticker remo
Wednesday’s not to be missed events and sessions:
General Session Keynote - What’s NEXT. A Future Built on YOUR Innovations
Sarah Backhouse returns to moderate an entire day that celebrates the power of this user community in creating and innovating the future. Co-founder of string field theory, best-selling author, and host of SciQ on the Science Channel, Dr. Michio Kaku. Michio will open the doors to what’s next and expose you to a future filled with space elevators, Internet-enabled contact lenses, and cars that fly by floating on magnetic fields; the stuff of science fiction that will soon become a part of our daily life. Using his new book, Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100 as a starting point, he’ll share a future that is clearly driven by systems and software innovation
Special Event: Rock n Ride with Foreigner Live at Sea World
Attendees and guests are invited to Sea World to experience close-up animal encounters, thrilling attractions plus a live concert from favorite 80’s hair band, Foreigner. Be prepared to get 80’s nostalgic bonding with your new systems engineering friends while watching Foreigner perform their greatest hits live! Dinner is also included. Busses depart at 7:00pm from the convention entrance. Special Event: 7:30-10:00pm
