09.55 - 10.25 Keynote Two: User Experience and Security in the HyperConnected World

Customers, Partners and Employees are constantly connected to the Internet and organizations need to serve, interact and collaborate with them anytime, anywhere, and through any device. Enterprises therefore are increasingly extending their IT infrastructure outside of the boundaries of their own data centers-embracing cloud computing, as well as delivering content and applications over the Internet across multiple devices. This keynote session will highlight why organizations need a solution that can address performance and security challenges which have significant impact on end-user experience and productivity.

10.25 - 10.55 Keynote Three: Next Generation Data Centre: Enabling Cloud Services for Optimized Productivity and Cost Efficiency

Enterprises today view Cloud Computing as a major focus for their business owing to the significant benefits it offers, foremost of which, is the development of a more responsive and cost effective business platform. With Cloud, organizations have total control and visibility of their IT environment and on-demand access to an array of trusted infrastructures and services. It allows them to share resources in one place, increases the efficiency of an organization's IT, and eliminates significant capital expenditure and IT resources for business projects up-front.

The potential benefits of moving to a Cloud Computing model are far-reaching, yet CIOs recognize the enormous tasks they face in making the move. The main challenge is in ensuring high availability of their cloud-enabled data centre platform that can bring new levels of business agility, greater cost efficiencies and high value innovation, all without compromising security, reliability or control.

In this presentation, the speaker will shed lights on the advent of managed cloud services; how it maximizes productivity while reducing cost; and industry's best practices to effectively deploy a cloud-ready data centre.

By ensuring you retain customers and at the same time grow the customer base. One critical aspect which many companies are beginning to lose focus is on user experience with their businesses. And getting to the bottom of this starts with the very foundation your company runs your business on right in the data center. This session will show you an often neglected piece of the puzzle to creating that Quality of Experience (QoE) but yet is so critical it could mean whether your customer will stay with your company.

15.15 - 15.45 Keynote Seven: Capitalising on Big Data in your Organisation

Big Data is one of the hottest trends in IT industry circles. It is generally characterised by the large, varied and rapidly growing volume of information that often remains untapped by existing BI and data warehousing systems. Increasingly, having the capacity to process Big Data and the tools to analyse it effectively is becoming a competitive necessity. As a result, IT leaders need to rethink many aspects of how they manage and deliver information - from investment in infrastructure and analytics tools to new policies for organising and accessing data so that they can deliver more of it, and faster too, in meaningful ways.

As Big Data infrastructures are being built and Big Data analysis problems are being identified with the intent to bring new insights to everyone in the organization, few are really in position to capitalise on it now. At this session, we will discuss how you can spread the benefit of Big Data analysis to the enterprise by integrating it with your traditional information and presenting it in highly visual ways that users will understand. Big Data visualization will provide you a roadmap for how to begin, evolve and master your Big Data dilemma. Whether it's digging through activity logs, finding insight from customer histories, or putting unstructured data to use, Actuate can show you the way.
