This special event, which will bring together a diverse group of medtech's key thought leaders from among corporate business development execs, venture capital and angel investors, start-up entrepreneurs and industry pioneers, will feature a panel discussion:

"Strategics on Deal Priorities: Driving Growth through Different Structures." Virtually all medtech exits take place by M&A. What are the strategics looking for when acquiring?

Discussion points will include:

  • What is the current appetite for deals? Compared to previous years?
  • Thin pickings or window of opportunities? How suitable is the startup community in creating the environment to do more deals?
  • Building the infrastructure to do more deals
  • Focusing on revenue generating companies
  • Tuck-in acquisitions vs. white space deals: where to focus
  • Growth through non-traditional markets: which areas can supplement growth?

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
