The dominant data-management platform?

Hadoop has fundamentally changed the economics of storing and analyzing massive data sets. We used to ask whether we could afford to store information. Today we ask whether we can afford to throw it away. This is not a technology argument; it is economic. Hadoop is part of the reason. Pivotal’s Dave Menninger looks at why Hadoop is destined to be the centerpiece of large-scale data management activities that serve end users in the context of who they are, where they are and what they are doing in the moment.

Addictive metrics: the secret to driving your business with analytics

The more visibility you have into your company’s data, the more you can do with it. Whether monitoring the performance of your web or mobile app, server utilization or even sales transactions, businesses are finding that once they start analyzing their production environment, they don’t want to stop — the business insights and efficiencies learned are too great. With more and more data flooding in, though, businesses have to make sure they are analyzing the right data and connecting the right dots. New Relic’s Lew Cirne will speak to how modern software builders can leverage this machine data, connect it to business metrics and build a better business.

Is cloud computing a technology, an operations model or a business strategy?

Cloud computing is usually viewed as a set of information technologies or as an operations model, with benefits primarily categorized as cost reduction and business agility. These benefits are certainly useful, but can the cloud offer more than merely incremental improvements and rise to become a central component of business strategy? If so, how? This provocative talk by the author of Cloudonomics will offer frameworks, examples and insights at the intersection of business and technology.

IT ops of the future: AI and analytics-based automation

Automating IT operations is about as old as IT itself. Most automation techniques to date are based on the industrial paradigm of economies of scale. In a world where one year is a century and where customer demand changes virtually every day, these techniques no longer do the trick. Arago’s founder and CEO, Chris Boos, will show a new approach to IT automation where artificial intelligence is used instead of standardization and data analytics instead of procedure. This new approach no longer puts people against machines but creates machine-augmented experts instead.

Speakers: Chris Boos - CEO, arago AG
