NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TabTimes, the reference news source about the tablet business and tablets for business, announces the second edition of its flagship business and IT conference. After its successful debut in New York last year, it will be held this year on both the East and the West coasts: TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY West will premiere in San Francisco on February 20, while TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY will be held in New York on April 30.

"Many attendees at our first conference were from the Silicon Valley and asked us to hold a similar event closer to home," says TabTimes CEO Patrick Pierra. "Expanding our one-day event to both New York and San Francisco will allow a larger number of IT and mobile decision-makers to share their tablet experiences with their peers."

Under the theme "Putting tablets to work," both events will feature experts in enterprise mobility and app development, and leaders of businesses who have deployed tablets to empower their employees.

The initial roster of confirmed speakers for TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY West includes:

  • Chris Yeh, Vice President of Platform at Box

  • Tom Gonser, Founder & Chief Strategy Officer of DocuSign

Conference attendees from all over the world will hear case studies of organizations having deployed iPad and other tablets. They will meet other business and IT managers involved in tablet projects within their enterprise - in sectors as diverse as healthcare, finance, sales and education. They will discuss technology, security and management issues related to tablet adoption by employees and executives, through sessions such as:

  • The challenges of managing a tablet project
  • In the field: How tablets empower mobile workers
  • At the workplace: How tablets are replacing the office PC
  • The next step in BYOD: How can companies reap bigger rewards and fewer setbacks

The TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY conference series has been designed for IT and business executives who are at the forefront of the tablet revolution in the enterprise. The first 50 tablet project managers from non-IT organizations who register for each event will attend free of charge, thanks to the events sponsors. Confirmed sponsors for TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY West currently include FileMaker, Apperian, EFI and Vernon.

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...

With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
