The Hispanic Television Summit is the signature annual event for those in the business of video and television intended for Hispanic audiences. It attracts over 500 top executives in television distribution, programming, production, advertising, marketing, research, technology and finance from the U.S., Latin America and Europe.

The session will focus on how the Hispanic TV viewing audience has proven its influence with networks and sponsors, especially with regard to the two biggest sports properties: the Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup. The three guests will discuss network plans for the future designed to increase options for Hispanic viewers that will incorporate sponsors. 

"This is a unique opportunity to get multiple perspectives on the future of sports television for Latino viewers," said Louis Hillelson, Vice President and Group Publisher of Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. "The discussion will be especially worthwhile for our attendees since each of these individuals are well-regarded and accomplished within their own field of expertise in the sports television business." 

Hillelson added, "Andres Cantor is one of the most iconic sports casters in America. He was presented with the Achievement in Hispanic Television Award at the 2nd Annual Hispanic Television Summit, so it's a special honor for us to have him return this year."

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
