Keep up with the challenges and drive your business forward

Our vendor-neutral conference program is shaped by our Review Board — comprised of attendees, speakers, industry experts, and the InformationWeek editorial team — ensuring that you learn about the most relevant things impacting your business, including security, cloud, DevOps, data and analytics, and infrastructure. Here's a sampling of our topics:

Container Concepts Explained in Plain Language - In this session, we'll explore some of the common "container buzzwords" and take a plain language look at what they are, where they fit into the bigger picture, why they're important, and what they mean to you.

Finding Actionable Insights in Enterprise Data - Building on multiple case studies and success stories, this session will look at some of the many ways successful businesses have used data analytics to make a difference in how they run, and what they achieve.

DevOps vs SRE vs Cloud Native - DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE).

Beware! Data Center Limits Fast Approaching - This session will explore these limits and offer realistic strategies to plan for living in a future where the speed of light is too slow for the hardware on which it must pass through.

There is No "Breach" Until Your Lawyer Says There Is - How should your organization structure its activities to avoid generating documents that can be used down the road by an adversary seeking to profit of your companies misfortune? 

Modern Skills for IT Professionals - This session will explore emerging practices, technologies and related competencies that organizations will need in order to keep and gain competitive advantage across the value stream.
