Another hot trend to watch will be hyperconvergence. During the past half-decade converged infrastructure has emerged to provide customers greater efficiencies by pre-packaging compute, network and storage appliances into a bundled package. Hyperconverged appliances take the concept a step further by combining those functions into a single appliance in many cases.
Companies such as Nutantix, Simplivity and others are vendors in this area.
Miniman is presenting a talk on the state of the hyperconvergence market.
Cisco's Executive Vice President of Industry Solutions Wim Elfrink will discuss the Internet of Things and a panel discussion will highlight what it takes to manage a mobile workforce. Users will share their stories, too, during keynotes, including Boston Red Sox's Vice President of IT Brian Shield and the CIO of La Quinta Inns and Suites, Vivek Shaiva.
