Susan Ruffalo, IBM Director, WebSphere Sales, US North Region
9:30 am - 10:15 am Keynote: The New Composable Business - What it is and How to Get There
The new digital economy requires a "composable business" model in which processes, applications and services can be assembled and re-assembled like building blocks--and IBM solutions are key to making that happen. A composable business enables developers to quickly build the next cool app on an ecosystem of innovation. Business leaders capture the next new customer and create new markets. And IT managers can provide a flexible infrastructure that supports both their developers and business leaders.

Jerry Cuomo, IBM Fellow, Vice President, WebSphere Chief Technology Officer
10:15 am - 10:30 am Refreshment Break
10:30 am - 11:15 am The MobileFirst Enterprise: Thinking Strategically About Mobile Computing
The average mobile phone user checks their phone 150 times a day, and around the world, mobile users generate 5 petabytes of data a day. IBM MobileFirst technologies help organizations build and deploy mobile apps, protect and manage mobile infrastructure, engage customers and transform the value chain to drive growth.

Dustin Amrhein, IBM MobileFirst Solution Architect
11:15 am - 12:15 pm Cloud as a Growth Engine for Business
Cloud is the new growth engine for business and the path to composable business will rely on the dynamic cloud. Businesses that can dynamically leverage public, private and hybrid cloud capabilities will have a competitive advantage. Cloud computing opens up new possibilities for developers by enabling them to continually experiment, compose and validate ideas, and iterate until they reach perfection.
