Newton, MA, June 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The IT sector is evolving and now faces monumental challenges in managing the volume of data generated from different devices today. In addition, outdated company structures can disengage the c-suite from the problem and create even larger hurdles. IT professionals across the financial, insurance, healthcare and education industries can learn how to remedy these issues by participating in the conference program at info360 (June 13-14, Jacob Javits Convention Center)
“Today, more than 50 percent of devices now being used in the enterprise are non-Windows,” said Whitney Tidmarsh Bouck, Enterprise General Manager, Box. “As a result, we’re seeing the effects: the consumerization of IT, “BYOD,” shift from on-premise to cloud. The question now is how can CIOs and other IT leaders be better equipped to deal with the post-PC world?”
Bouck will address the challenge of data overload in a post-PC world during her keynote presentation entitled, “Building the Smarter Enterprise,” on Thursday, June 14 at 11:15 a.m. The session will cover how IT departments worldwide will cope with the 1.8 trillion gigabytes of information projected to be generated and stored this year alone by fine-tuning their client service, cloud and social tools.
Michael Peachey, Director of Social Enterprise Solutions Marketing, salesforce.com, will also deliver a keynote presentation at the show. In his session, “Social Revolution in the Enterprise,”scheduled for Thursday, June 14 at 10:45 a.m., he’ll tackle the need for social revolution within enterprises and examine how today’s most successful CEOs are transforming their companies and employees with a more socially integrated model.
“Today, a CEO can’t afford to be disengaged and rule from an ivory tower,” Peachey said. “CEOs need to see for themselves what’s happening inside their organization, break down silos and hierarchies and engage with employees directly.”
An additional keynote presentation, “Adoption is the New ROI,” will be delivered by David Sacks, Founder and CEO of Yammer, Inc. (Wednesday, June 13) and a special panel entitled, “The Consumerization of IT: Revolution or Evolution?” will kick off the keynote program on Wednesday, June 13, with insights from panelists Carin Forman, Director, Digital Media, Information Technology, HBO and David Kellogg, Chief Information Officer and Publisher, Council on Foreign Relations.
The keynote presentations are part of info360’s 70+ session conference program.
