Enterprise Computing Strategy Summit 2006Raven Zachary, December 5, 2006 @ 2:24 pm ET
Next week (12/11-12) is The 451 Group’s 2006 Enterprise Computing Strategy Summit at the Westin Times Square in New York. The topic of this end-user focused event is on grid technology as the underpinning for service-oriented IT. From the event site:
The 451 Group has tracked the adoption of grid technology by enterprise organizations since 2000. Over that period of time, 451 analysts have seen a significant evolution as the grid ‘stack’ has matured; moreover, the experiences of early adopters have proven that grid technologies can play a key role in enabling the agility of enterprise computing resources for companies in myriad vertical industries, including digital media, finance, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and telecommunications. What’s next for grids and the evolution of distributed enterprise computing resources?
I will be moderating a panel on the second day of the summit – ‘Open source and grids: A strategic fit?’, with panelists from Bank of America (BJ Fesq, Chief Architect), Credit Suisse (Chris Swan, VP IT R&D), The Hartford (Bob Nordlund, Dir. Life Advanced Technologies), and Johnson & Johnson (Dann Connelly, Manager, Technology Office). As we see open source dominating the infrastructure software space, does this mean the future of grid software is open?
