Transforming the City of Las Vegas at HP Discover

The CIO of Las Vegas several decades ago (if they had CIOs then!), would have had all the flexibility to evolve the barren Nevada landscape into anything he or she wanted at that time. A classic equivalent of a green field environment within enterprises of today. But enterprises are faced with the reality of a sprawling landscape of applications and supporting infrastructure – just like the labyrinth of casinos and architectural marvels in Las Vegas with no breathing space. Enterprises – like Vegas – need to have a transformation strategy that takes them from the landscape of applications to the cloudscape of services driven by the New Style Of IT. What better place to discuss this than HP Discover 2014!

 

Little Data can change the user experience with relevant information at HP Discover

The integration of next-generation technologies will change the focus in the near future to bringing “relevant information” to users based on conversation context, location, etc. This is the essence of the DT3574 - How future technologies will change the role between users and information session delivered by Seth Pickett, HP Senior Director. It is intended to be an open discussion on how enterprises will enable these technologies to gain competitive advantage. But the impact of such technologies starts with individuals like you and me. Say hello to Little Data, which is all about having timely access to information that matters to the individual with context. Little by little, appropriate chunks of relevant information will enrich the user experience when dealing with zettabytes of Big Data.

Looking at the data—through Google Glass—to view the information

After having checked out the Cloud, Security, and Mobility tracks at HP Discover, I look at Session DT 3809 on how Google Glass can be used to view information that matters. Reading the abstract, I get several ideas of how this “thing” can make a difference, across various industries, in the new world of Internet of Things (IoT). For instance, Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) CIO John Halamka, explains the benefits of physicians adorning Google Glass who look at their patients while viewing their information. This is Google Glass applied to the healthcare industry. Like Big Data and Cloud, IoT has its own way of making a difference across industries. Let’s look at the scenarios below to view the related information.

Internet of Things (IoT) matters at HP Discover

“You ain't seen nothin' yet,” is the phrase that comes to mind when I take a look at the HP Discover sessions on Internet of Things (IoT). Big Data mattered at past HP Discover conferences, but IoT is going to take it to the next level as projected in multiple sessions at HP Discover. Discover Theater session DT3621 from HP Labs discusses how the appliances in our homes, and the environment around us, generate data that must be harnessed and mined across the fabric of connected devices. At the same time, I am presenting on the on the impact of IoT on IT in a different Discover Theater session – DT3503. While gearing up for this session, I am reminded of a recent Twitter Chat, coordinated by the Enterprise CIO Forum, where it was abundantly clear that IoT is bound to matter to CIOs. Here are some of the key reasons why. 

A New Style of Data Science at HP Discover

Taking a sneak peek at the various sessions in the Big Data Track for HP Discover, one of the sessions that stands out is DT3619 - When Big Data becomes truly big and truly fastby Jaap Suermondt, VP, Analytics Lab, HP Labs. This session explores improvements in how to turn data into actionable information, and how to use sensing and control analytics to better understand the physical world around us. But to shape the world at zetta scale – as the abstract suggests – we will need more than computers and data science. What we need is a New Style of Data Scientists. Say hello to Data Artists!
