From Nanometers to Yottabytes (Intel Keynote)

Pauline Nist — General Manager, Enterprise Software Strategy, Intel

Within the next decade, Intel will build a processor with more transistors on chip than neurons in the brain. And in that same time, a cloud of computing will envelop the planet with just as many intelligent systems. And as the world population goes online, the feedback loops of interaction will drive a profound shift in the production and consumption of information services. At the core of this transformation is the growing need to help businesses and consumers turn a deluge of data into a stream of insights. Intel has set its sights on the big challenges of ingesting data from billions of intelligent devices, analyzing it cost-effectively in hyper-scale datacenters, and bringing social experiences to mobile users around the world. Join Pauline Nist, Intel GM of Enterprise Software, to learn how Intel uses open source software and industry standard platforms to deliver this innovation at scale.

Jim will close out the hour with one-on-one live interviews with customers on the cutting edge of IT including Tim Potter of Meteorcomm, Richard Dawson of British Airways, and more as they share their experiences, tips, tricks and predictions. After the hour is up, the happiness continues as the party moves to Fenway Park.
