Virtualization technology enables IT personnel to respond to business needs more rapidly with lower cost and improved operational efficiencies. At the same time, interoperability and portability of applications are key for organizations that have purchased virtualization platforms from more than one vendor or want to take advantage of cloud service offerings.

In this session we will discuss how existing DMTF standards enables workload interoperability across different virtualization technologies and enable unified management of such environments. We will also discuss DMTF's Open Cloud Standards Incubator and explain how DMTF virtualization standards can be utilized to achieve interoperability between private clouds within enterprises and hosted or public cloud providers.

  • The Pentagon reports 10 million cyberattacks daily. Federal, state and local government agencies need to safeguard information and maintain control when addressing internal mandates for cloud migration. Do you know how many attacks you are experiencing on a daily basis? Do you know where those attacks are coming from? How long they have been in your environment?

    While there is no silver bullet to combating either external or internal cyberattacks, there are steps you can take to build a defense strategy to protect your agency. Beyond just detecting attacks, you need to build up your defenses and take the necessary steps to protect your data and applications.

    In this session, we will discuss how you can leverage the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite to help:
    1. Monitor behavior on your internal network and detect abnormal behavior
    2. Identify authentication irregularities from your users
    3. Protect applications using two-factor authentication
    4. Restrict access to confidential data

  • With as much as 30% of total IT budgets being spent outside of IT departments, technical workarounds by the business, also known as "shadow IT", can no longer be ignored.

    In order to strike a necessary balance between IT control and business-driven efforts, many IT leaders are turning to aPaaS solutions for Citizen Development. Successful implementation of aPaaS hinges on effective change management around people, processes, and technology.

    Join Francois Tricot, CIO of Ceva as he and QuickBase Manager Angela Maglione explore:

    -Factors contributing to the rise of shadow IT
    -Rules of engagement for IT leaders and business users who both want to benefit from aPaaS
    -Real-world examples of effective IT leaders who are currently managing shadow IT
    -Actionable next steps and key questions to consider before embarking on your own Citizen Development journey

  • For the Data Scientist, Data Science is complex; for the average business user it is a mystical art form that promises a lot, but often under delivers against expectation. For many established companies the result of this has been a lack of investment in an area that is, for others, quickly becoming an area of competitive advantage.



    Helping the business understand the value of Big Data and Analytics, whilst also helping translate their business requirements and expectations, is a critical foundational step of the Data Analytics Lifecycle that can lead to greater investment from the business and greater profit for the organization. By way of customer examples, this presentation discusses the importance of engaging the business early and the importance of being able to tell an engaging story about the ‘Art of the Possible’.
