Yahoo CIO to Present At Cloud Expo Silicon Valley

Mike brings more than 23 years of IT operations experience with a focus on highly scalable architectures

Yahoo CIO Mike Kail will present a session on DevOps at the 3rd International DevOps Summit, November 4-6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Mike brings more than 23 years of IT operations experience with a focus on highly scalable architectures to Yahoo. Prior to Yahoo, he served as VP of IT Operations at Netflix. The Netflix culture highlighted the transformation we see within forward-thinking IT organizations today and its use of public cloud and ‘No Ops' is well known in the industry. Mike Kail worked to develop this culture within Netflix's own IT organization, where he focused not only on the technology, but also on hiring and training the right talent. In order to achieve the right mix of technology innovation and human talent, he concentrated on identifying the right mind set for a new way of IT (DevOps) and how to transition from IT Ops to DevOps

Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

In this power panel at @...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences.
