Engage with global technology experts and industry leaders by signing up in one of our six parallel tracks.

Data Center and Cloud

DATA CENTER & CLOUD

When embarking on building, re-architecting, transforming or even moving out of your data center, always do so with an end in mind. While 3rd platform technologies influence who you buy from and what you buy, working with the right service provider will be critical in achieving all modernization and transformative needs. Learn the value of Data Center Outsourcing and Managed Cloud Services and free up your valuable IT resources from day-to-day heavy lifting.

Big Data and Analytics

BIG DATA & ANALYTICS

With the digitalization of everything, data has become a new strategic asset. The ability to make smarter, quicker, and data-driven decisions will increasingly become a competitive necessity. The adoption of Big Data & Analytics is expected to exponentially scale in not only the most forward-thinking organizations but even more pervasively into the broader market. Listen to global trends & actual use cases, and witness how Big Data can transform the way you do business.

M2M and IOT

M2M & IOT

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) ecosystem is in the midst of rapid market evolution, changing the world, and has probably changed our lives already even without us noticing. The addition of billions of devices to the network edge will drive the need for more enterprise systems to deploy, manage, and make use of these devices and the data they generate. In this session, gain new insights on how businesses can embark on digital transformation and experience the latest trends in M2M and IoT.

Digital Engagement

DIGITAL ENGAGEMENT

Digital Engagement is an all-encompassing term that highlights the increasingly innovative and complex business models that cater to the changing consumer purchasing behavior over and above the traditional ecommerce models. This session will highlight customer engagement through mobile, digital and social media, with a focus on the Asia Pacific region and the Philippines. Gain an in-depth look at the best practices of digital marketing, the dynamic rising market of the Now-generation, and mobile-first marketing tools that are available today.

Unified Communications and Collaboration

UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS & COLLABORATION

As technology advances, the digitalization of the workplace becomes inevitable in changing its dynamics, notably with the rise of 3rd Platform technologies. Unified communications & collaboration (UC&C) has emerged to be a powerful tool in enabling Smart Workplace, as the solution itself allows workers to virtually take their office with them, anywhere and anytime. In this session, gain key insights on the significance of videoconferencing and collaborative apps and learn how mobility can serve as an important endpoint or medium in enabling digital transformation in the workplace.
