Interop Las Vegas - March 31-April 4

BYOD: Not just a trend, but a state of mind
Business users are demanding unlimited mobile access to the information they need—on the newest devices they can get. But with so many different types of mobile devices, is this model sustainable? According to Gartner, the unexpected consequences of BYOD programs are doubling or even tripling the size of the mobile workforce. On Thursday morning, Interop mobility experts will present examples of real enterprises' BYOD strategies. Led by UBM Tech Director of Editorial Susan Nunziata, the panelists will outline IT and security pitfalls and share actionable advice to prepare IT infrastructures. Panelists include:

  • Steve Brar, Manager, Global Product Marketing, HP Networking
  • Brian Robison, Principal Technology Evangelist, XenMobile
  • Mike Schutz, General Manager Windows Server and Management, Microsoft

SDN: Where is it headed?
SDN implementations are beginning to deliver real enterprise value as product sets mature and IT professionals gain a better understanding of how SDN can enhance networking capabilities. 451 Research Chief Analyst Eric Hanselman will bring together SDN thought leaders from different regions of networking to discuss what's happening with SDN and lend predictions for its future. The following panelists will present during the Wednesday morning SDN keynote:

  • Arpit Joshipura, Vice President, Product Management & Strategy, Dell Networking
  • Steve Shah, Senior Director of Product Management, Citrix
  • Dominic Wilde, Vice President of Global Product Line Management, HP Networking

"We've seen the debut of SDN deployments and their ability to better align the network to applications. And BYOD is now forcing changes in policies, applications and even network architecture," said Interop General Manager Jennifer Jessup. "With so much recent movement in mobility and SDN, these two practical panel discussions—and all keynote sessions—are must-sees."

The following IT experts will also present from the keynote stage:

  • Rob Cordova, Master Leadership Trainer
  • Pat Gelsinger, CEO, VMware
  • Stephen Gillett, COO, Symantec
  • Rebecca Jacoby, CIO & Senior Vice President, Cisco
  • Gregory Smith, CTO, ASCD & Author of Straight to the Top: CIO Leadership in a Mobile, Social, and Cloud-based World
  • Larry Quinlan, Global CIO, Deloitte

Keynote sessions will take place Wednesday, April 2 and Thursday, April 3 from 8:30 to 10:30 am. The full keynote lineup is available at interop.com/lasvegas/conference/keynote.php.
