The Future of Computing - Our speakers discuss IT innovation, agility and infrastructure - Canberra
Featuring: Dr Kevin McIsaac, Analyst IBRS
Heralded by some as the biggest game changer since virtualisation, Expert Integrated Systems could revolutionise the world for CIOs. How so? By moving away from focusing on the operational and towards delivering business transformation and competitive advantage.
At this breakfast you will have the chance to hear independent industry experts examine the current reality of integrated solutions along with their analysis of where such systems are going. Also speaking is IBM’s evangelist for Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions and Cloud, who will explain their new offering, IBM PureSystems, in ‘true’ business terms and explore what that means in reality for you as a CIO.
