On Thursday, January 23 Dell services will be hosting a think tank in Silicon Valley at the venture capital firm NEA. While hosted in the Bay Area, the event will be streamed live for viewing around the world.
The title of the Think Tank is “The new age of apps and delivery gaps” and we have put together a group of 10 panelist that we feel represents a cross-section of technology and IT today:
I will be acting as the moderator of the panel.
The event will begin at 9AM Pacific Time, and last for three and a half hours. The event will be divided into two main sessions and we’ll discuss such topics as the influence of application developers, the changing role of the CIO and why firms need to build API strategies (see the session outlines below for more details). You can follow and contribute questions and comments via Twitter at #TheAppGap. Hope you can make it!
Session 1- Welcome to the application-centric world – best practices in the ‘greenfield’
The rise of cloud applications force companies to reevaluate their business architectures. Leveraging new platforms, organizations can operate more efficiently, better engage with customers, and introduce innovative products and services faster than ever before. In this session we’ll discuss and debate how to effectively leverage the best of today’s advanced (digital) technologies and capitalize on the opportunity for a ‘greenfield’ approach.
Session 2: Nexus of forces – CIOs under pressure and the rise of the enterprise developer
While CIOs are under pressure to reduce costs and improve efficiency, enterprise developers have become the new ‘kingmakers’ leading product development and customer applications. Our experts will share experiences in managing these complex stakeholder relationships, brainstorm the way out from technical debt and examine the possibilities within existing applications.
Pau for now…
