Your Enterprise Network: Getting You Where You Want to Go
We are entering an era of the Internet of Everything (IoE), where networks will gain unprecedented context awareness--with more processing power to connect people, process, data and things like never before. This will create dramatically new opportunities for businesses – by connecting the unconnected and better connecting the connected.
Is your enterprise network ready to take you where you want to go? Will it support the business applications that you are being asked to support?
This will be an Interop keynote you will never forget. Rob Soderbery, SVP/GM of Cisco Enterprise Networking, will be joined onstage by a NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving to show how the next-generation network architecture can optimize the performance of both the network and the things connected to it. Learn how a programmable, open, and application-aware network can unleash the power of IoE and get you where you want to go.(View Speaker Bio)
SDN Keynote Panel
Deep Network Impact – Riding the Shockwave of Change in Networking
Networking has undergone a set of transformations whose effects are only just becoming visible and whose impacts will be profound. The rise of merchant silicon-based networking gear and the virtualization of ever greater swaths of network connectivity have changed how networks are built and where value is delivered and by whom. With many of networking's historical problems being solved in silicon, software is the space for differentiation and the ability to rapidly innovate is changing capabilities and expectations. This panel brings together thought leaders that span the different regions of networking to discuss what's happening with networking and where it's headed. Is your organization ready to deal with the agility that greater abstraction brings? Be ready for the changes that these shifts are imposing on everything from equipment purchasing to IT processes and job roles.

Bob Muglia | EVP, Software Solutions Division | Juniper Networks
If 2012 was the year of SDN hype and excitement, 2013 is shaping up to be the time of SDN pragmatism and execution. The truth is that SDN has tremendous promise to reduce costs, accelerate service introduction and fuel innovation—but to reap these benefits we must first clearly understand the key principles of SDN, and plan a clearly mapped and non-disruptive transition path. Additionally SDN will demand business models transform to meet the increased importance of software and the coming evolution of networking.
In this keynote presentation, Bob Muglia will outline a clear and cohesive SDN vision, the 6 key principles that underscore SDN, 4 steps for a pragmatic evolution towards SDN, and 1 new business model to enable it all. This presentation will decode the SDN hype and give attendees a clear understanding of what SDN means to the Data Center and beyond.(View Speaker Bio)
Frank Frankovsky | Vice President of Hardware Design and Supply Chain | Facebook
Next Steps for the Open Compute Project
Billions of people and their many devices will be coming online in the next decade, and those who are already online are living ever-more connected lives. The industry is building out a huge physical infrastructure to support this growth, but we are doing so in a largely closed fashion, inhibiting the pace of innovation and preventing us from achieving the kinds of efficiencies that might otherwise be possible.
In this keynote, Frank Frankovsky will provide an overview of the Open Compute Project, a thriving consumer-led community dedicated to addressing this issue, promoting more openness and a greater focus on scale, efficiency, and sustainability in the development of infrastructure technologies. Frank will delve into the brief history of the project and describe its vision for the future.(View Speaker Bio)

Michael Barrett | Chief Information Security Officer | PayPal
The Death of Passwords!
Passwords are failing us; what are we going to do to replace them? As CISO for PayPal, Michael Barrett is highly aware of the need for strong authentication, but his experience is that end users will always opt for the easiest possible solution. For many years it has been known that we need to evolve beyond the password as our primary source of authentication. Unfortunately, the alternatives so far have not provided an answer that both enhances authentication and works for end users. This session will introduce an approach that proposes a path forward that incorporates the lessons learned from the past along with the desired future of being able provide strong and easy to use authentication in the digital world.(View Speaker Bio)

Can Clouds Make a Business Better?
Cloud Computing has been touted as a magical cure-all for enterprise agility. Deploy clouds, the story goes, and you'll make the company faster, more responsive, and more efficient. But clouds are only part of a bigger change that includes continuous deployment, lean product management, customer development, analytics, and more.
Join John Considine, Steven Shalita, Eli Almog, and Alistair Croll for a no-holds-barred panel that looks at what else companies need to capitalize on on-demand infrastructure, and what the obstacles—and opportunities—for re-engineering the business look like.

Embrace the Future of Data Center Networking
HP is transforming the networking industry with the most complete software-defined network fabric. Sears is changing the way the people shop.
According to industry analysts, 30 years of network design principles have kept virtual network infrastructure at bay. This is constraining data centers as more than 80 percent of all traffic is between servers, and up to 80 percent of end-user traffic will move to the WAN by 2014. Preventing agility is the manual box-by-box administration of networks known as human middleware.
Join Bethany Mayer, senior vice president and general manager, HP Networking to learn about data center networking innovations that simplify, scale and automate the network to enable virtualization, big data and cloud.
Joining Bethany will be Conrad Menezes, vice president, Network and Information Security, Sears Holdings Corp. Sears deployed HP data center network solutions in creating a large-scale private cloud that is increasing agility to modernize the way people shop at the store, online and in the home.
Conrad from Sears will talk about their journey to a modern network so that its Members and customers can Shop Your Way.
