Learn how to cope with disruptive technologies

Cloud computing, big data, consumerization of IT and enterprise security— These are the topics that dominate the IT trade press and even some business press. Companies need to know all they can about these trends, because these technologies either will disrupt IT and/or the business or they can adversely impact the business if not adopted early enough.


Mark Potts.PNGOne IT expert who knows about these trends, and what you can do to keep a step ahead of them, is Mark Potts, HP Fellow and Chief Technology Officer for HP Software. Mark will be presenting an HP Discover Vegas 2012 track keynote covering these topics on Tuesday, June 5, 1:30 p.m. in Palazzo D, Venetian/Palazzo Convention Center.  This is one session you don’t want to miss.

Interview: HP Chief Technology Officer Mark Potts on Innovation


thinkdisruptive | ‎05-23-2012 04:26 PM

This session would have a much higher credibility if HP had demonstrated any ability at all to cope with disruptive innovations. Being able to build advanced technology doesn't make you disruptive, nor does simply surviving mean that you're coping with disruption.


What response does HP have to iPhones and iPads -- to the disruption of its PC and notebook lines of business? To App Stores? To fewer documents and picture being printed? To any of the big changes affecting its revenue streams?
