5:00 pm - 6:00 pmOpening Keynote: The Future of Information Infrastructure: Consumerization + Big Data = Systems of Engagement

Historically, enterprise IT investment was done by deploying global systems of record, but today, these systems are largely deployed and much (if not most) of their lifetime value has been realized. By contrast, a new dimension of IT -- systems of engagement — that is equally massive in its potential for input, is just starting to get deployed with its overwhelming bulk of lifetime value yet to be realized. What will drive and what will gate the deployment of more systems of engagement, and -- of particular importance to the SNW community -- how will it stress the IT infrastructure we deploy, regardless of where it is located? Join Geoff Moore as he narrates the future of enterprise IT — from systems of record to systems of engagement..


Geoffrey Moore, Managing Director, TCG Advisors, Venture Partner, Mohr Davidow Ventures, and Best Selling Author

9:00 am - 9:45 amExplaining the Value of Information Infrastructure to Top Management

While modern IT infrastructure can deliver tremendous business benefits and advantages over competitors, these benefits don’t easily translate internally into perceived business value. Unlike investments in business applications and devices that enable easily understood productivity, some of the hardest conversations IT managers have with CFOs and CEOs are about IT infrastructure — and why investments in virtualization, private clouds and modern networks are critical. How do leading CIOs successfully justify lifecycle management across the different tiers of infrastructure? What methodologies can you use to better justify infrastructure investments to top management? In this session, see how one CIO ties business value to infrastructure upgrades.


Joe Eng, CIO, JetBlue Airways
9:45 am - 10:15 amBuilding a Responsive IT Infrastructure Organization

The speed of change is only increasing. Enabled by new technologies and communications streams, companies are “getting faster really fast.” All of this is making it harder and harder for IT organizations to keep up with the pace of change. What strategies can organizations use to maintain responsiveness while managing and optimizing existing infrastructure? Gather tips and strategies in this session.

4:00 pm - 4:30 pmTransforming the Technology Stack: The Next Generation of Enterprise Efficiency

Enterprises depend on complex technology stacks spanning application, database, compute and storage layers - all of which are evolving and advancing at a rapid pace. It’s increasingly difficult and expensive for customers to ensure that these elements not only interoperate with each other across multiple providers, but are optimally tuned to deliver their intended value and performance from the point of initial deployment and throughout their useful life. Join us for this session as Phil Bullinger describes how the next generation of enterprise efficiency will be driven by engineered solutions that integrate the information technology infrastructure stack -- from application to storage -- and how this will enable a decisive shift in IT spending from merely sustaining operations to growing and transforming businesses with greater agility, efficiency and productivity.


Phil Bullinger, Senior Vice President, Storage, Oracle
4:30 pm - 5:15 pmEnabling Business Innovation with a Cloud Computing Infrastructure

It starts with the business. SAIC wanted to find out how modern virtualization technology can translate to a new kind of agility for a company of their size and scope. How could a data center build become a cornerstone of an enterprise cloud? How could an M&A IT forklift integration be accelerated by virtualization? How could IT virtualization make a strategic difference for the business? Their answer: Move everything to a cloud computing infrastructure. Learn how and why SAIC is making the move in this session.

9:00 am - 9:45 amWhat is Big Data, and Why Does It Matter?

More and more devices are connecting to the enterprise with increasing ability to create and manipulate information. Today, more processing, storage, and I/O capacity is emerging outside the data center than inside. Simply put, businesses and enterprises are manufacturing more information -- and writing more applications to use it -- than ever. This environment of “Big Data” is becoming the norm, and for some organizations grappling with how to tame it, it’s been an exercise in frustration — but eventual calm using strategic approaches to organizing it for business consumption. Learn how some companies are facing the inevitability of managing the new normal of Big Data.


Tom Soderstrom, IT CTO, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
9:45 am - 10:15 amProtecting the Information Infrastructure: Why CIOs and CSOs are Becoming Mission-Critical Business Partners

Remember not so long ago when breaches created shocking headlines? Today, they’re so frequent that we’re becoming de-sensitized when we hear that household-name companies are robbed of customer data. While the news feels less shocking, the problem is actually getting worse. The bad guys are not only getting more sophisticated, they’re becoming better financed -- so protecting corporate data has never been more crucial. In this session, hear how companies must improve how their data moves in an information-centric security environment, and how it’s no longer about the CIO aligning business and technology, but aligning business, technology and security.
