IBM Keynote

Tuesday, April 4
8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. 

It seems that as fast as we deliver new apps and functionality for our businesses, the platforms and requirements change. But emerging technologies such as Blockchain, Cognitive and Quantum Computing will do more than change our businesses. They will transform industries and create their own ecosystems.

The key is understanding how these transformations will impact you, your business and your industry. And the projects, apps and code that your IT and development teams are working with. It is not just about playing in sandboxes and building castles made of sand. It is about taking these new technologies and delivering something tangible today.

In this session, we will:
• Explore these emerging technologies and the impact that they are having today
• Discuss the current and emerging use cases
• Show how you can take advantage of them to drive competitive advantage

He’ll outline the importance of building personalized paths to cloud, using customer stories to show how companies can begin to transform their organizations from any starting point.
