It offers attendees the opportunity to learn more about the Third Platform, showcase technology solutions, and their ability to drive change and solve business needs.

The 3PX|TechCon agenda is packed with more than 80 sessions from industry experts including:

  • How In-Memory Computing Can Boost Cloud Performance for Big Data - Eric Frenkiel, MemSQL
    Big data has ushered in new challenges for organizations, and today's decision-makers are faced with a multitude of solutions while lacking clear answers about how to leverage the cloud to effectively tackle big data. In this session, two Facebook and Y-Combinator graduates will discuss how top mobile, gaming and financial services companies are solving problems with in-memory computing.

  • The Agile Architecture Revolution - Jason Bloomberg, ZapThink
    It's technology that can help the organization deal with change, and leverage change for competitive, strategic advantage. If only we knew how to put it all together properly. Enter Agile Architecture. How can we design systems that provide such agility?

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?

Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
