Edge to Cloud: Accelerate Your Transformation to Hybrid Cloud

Saleh Al-Nemer

CTO (Saudi Arabia and MESA ), HPE

To take full advantage of today's tornado of widely distributed data, IT needs to reach beyond the traditional datacenter and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. This is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than ever before. Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have predicted. This session will provide guidance on using the right mix and solutions-as-a-service strategy to run your critical applications on cloud, on premises, and in a hybrid environment.

Enabling Intelligent Transformation in a Data-Driven World

Joseph Layous

ME Storage Sales Manager Data Center Group, Lenovo

Technology is changing at a speed we have never seen before. It is hard to keep IT infrastructure ahead of the curve, with IoT, blockchain, and AI driving the digital transformation of core systems. With up to 20 billion connected "things" all creating data that needs to be collated, analyzed, and stored, the landscape in any given datacenter will change dramatically in the next 18-24 months. This session will explore how the adoption and growth of data that is processed and generated at the edge can be aided through technologies that make individuals' lives better and move industries forward. It will also show how organizations can build end-to-end solutions with smart features that transform processes and improve the user experience.
