Technology Futures: IBM's Global Technology Outlook

Speaker:  Valentina Salapura – NY, United States
Topic(s):  Software Engineering and Programming

Abstract

Join us for a look at IBM's vision for the near term future, or as IBM terms it, IBM's Global Technology Outlook (GTO).  IBM Research and its global community of some of the world’s top scientists consider the cultural and business applications in which technologies will be used – and the impact they will have on IBM and the world.  It’s IBM’s vision of the future for information technology, synthesizing insight from academia, partners and clients around the world.  The session will highlight emerging architecture, software, hardware, and services technology trends that are expected to significantly impact information technology (IT) in the next 3-7 years and how these trends will enable new uses and capabilities for IT.  In particular, the GTO identifies technologies that may be disruptive to an existing business, have the potential to create new opportunity while provide new business value to our customers.
Can technology help transform healthcare to provide better patient outcomes while reducing costs?  Will advances in software help business leap past the performance limitations of hardware? Can new computing models like cloud and hybrid computing help manage legacy hardware, processes and applications? What can be learned by looking across multiple systems and platforms that can help optimize workloads?  The Global Technology Outlook that follows takes a far-reaching view into these challenges at a global level and offers insights into the future.
