    Realize Your Digital Future

    Michael Dell will discuss Dell Technologies’ vision for the future. For years IT organizations have talked about aligning with the business, but as companies become digital IT will become the business. Every business must develop a technology DNA at their core in order to respond to the disruption taking place in their industry –this change will affect every company, in every industry.

    David Goulden will build on Michael Dell’s industry viewpoint and discuss the specific impact of digital transformation on IT. IT must transform and become more efficient, driving costs savings to help fund a new generation of digital applications. The data center must modernize – embracing architectures that scale-out, are software-defined, cloud enabled and trusted. The latest flash and x86 technology accelerate this modernization and lay down the right foundation for IT to then automate, transform operations and ultimately deliver their services as a Hybrid Cloud.

    AI in Perspective

    The inexorable growth in the capacity of Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems poses at once a huge economic and business opportunity, and also raises many different fears and ethical issues. Replacing manual labor is one thing; replacing the decision makers whether business, judicial or military is entirely another. Can we define clear boundaries, and controls to ensure the systems preserve our values? Will we not realize we are not in charge any more until it is too late?
