Planview Horizons® 2017 takes place Oct. 17-19 with award-winning triathlete and software engineer, Patricia Walsh, to address global conference attendees

AUSTIN, Texas, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This year marks the 20th anniversary of Horizons, the annual Planview® customer conference, taking place Oct. 17-19 at the Fairmont Austin, a new luxury hotel with state-of-the-art meeting facilities opening September 2017. More than 600 attendees representing virtually every industry will gather at Horizons for three days to celebrate the global conference's 20th anniversary, network with peers and thought leaders, gain work and resource management best practices, learn about Planview products and roadmaps, and hear keynote speaker Patricia Walsh.

Diagnosed with a severe brain tumor, Patricia Walsh became blind at age five due to complications of surgery. Today, she is a world champion triathlete, award-winning engineer, and author of Blind Ambition – an inspirational novel that details her fuel / fire / blaze approach to achieving any goal. Patricia was one of the first blind engineers at Microsoft®, and has held positions in enterprise architecture and program management at global companies.

"I am honored to be keynoting Planview's 20th annual Horizons customer conference in October," said Patricia Walsh. "My life journey of overcoming the obstacles that came with loss of sight at an early age has had its ups and downs, and through this process I realized it takes determination, teamwork and a winning mindset to ultimately succeed. I look forward to sharing my personal and professional story with the Horizons 2017 attendees, and imparting practical and aspirational approaches for how they can strive for positive outcomes under any circumstances." 

"Planview is excited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Horizons and feature Patricia Walsh as our conference keynote speaker this year," said Scott Hardey, Planview's chief customer officer.

Existing Big Data solutions are mainly focused on the discovery and analysis of data. The solutions are scalable and highly available but tedious when swapping in and swapping out occurs in disarray and thrashing takes place. The resolution for thrashing through machine learning algorithms and support nomenclature is through simple techniques. Organizations that have been collecting large customer data are increasingly seeing the need to use the data for swapping in and out and thrashing occurs ...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...
