PANEL OF CTO’s: Technology Trends Changing Lives of CTOs

Networking @ 6:00 pm   Dinner/ Program @ 7:00 to 9:00 pm

A distinguished panel of Chief Technology Officers will be looking at major technology trends having a big impact on CTOs over the past 3-5 years — things which are changing our view of the world. The emphasis is on major trends such as DevOps/Containers/CI/CD, agile development, opening up legacy systems, Internet of Things (IoT), Mobile, and Social media.
Each CTO will present major developments/ trends — what they are finding different now than 3 years ago — and how they’ve risen to the challenge in addressing these trends.  They will be sharing a vision of the future that is unfolding among us right now!
