Tuesday Guru Session: 3pm, Venetian F – Sponsored by Brocade
Shifts in technology across the stack are creating radical change in IT, resulting in confusion, fear, uncertainty and huge opportunities. Gain a unique perspective on ways to pay for the future by modernizing your present. Explore how changes in technology are enabling the IT world to unlock trapped value in infrastructure and data, to create more value than the cost of adopting new technology. Geoffrey Moore & John Roese offer a unique perspective where business meets technology, in this age of disruption.
Geoffrey Moore is an author, speaker, and advisor who splits his consulting time between start-up companies in the Mohr Davidow portfolio and established high-tech enterprises, most recently including Salesforce, Microsoft, Intel, Box, Aruba, Cognizant, and Rackspace.
Moore’s life’s work has focused on the market dynamics surrounding disruptive innovations. His first book, Crossing the Chasm, focuses on the challenges start-up companies face transitioning from early adopting to mainstream customers. It has sold more than a million copies, and its third edition has been revised such that the majority of its examples and case studies reference companies come to prominence from the past decade. Moore’s most recent work, Escape Velocity, addresses the challenge large enterprises face when they seek to add a new line of business to their established portfolio. It has been the basis of much of his recent consulting.
