Interop Las Vegas 2015 covers key topics for enterprise IT professionals.

Interop 2015 opened today at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Day 1 kicks off the weeklong event with numerous workshops and discussion- oriented roundtable sessions with the main event and expo starting tomorrow.

As one of the main enterprise IT shows in the US, Interop Las Vegas attracts over 10,000 attendees and 300+ exhibitors. As you might expect, the show covers a broad range of enterprise technologies and topics including applications, the cloud, collaboration, security, infrastructure, mobility, software-defined networking, storage, virtualization and leadership (like I said, a long list!).

The keynotes mirror the conference topics, covering many of the top enterprise IT issues of the day. A partial list of big-tent session topics include infrastructure (Google), privacy vs security (Electronic Frontier Foundation), Innovation (Adobe), Mobile Strategy (panel), the Internet-of-Things (Cisco), Software-defined Networking (panel) and Virtualization (VMWare).

Over 60 vendors have previewed the announcements they expect to make at Interop, many focused on networking technology.

Programs co-located with Interop this year include Cloud Connect, InformationWeek Conference, and the Dark Reading Cyber Security Summit.

There’s plenty to learn at Interop and as the one of the few independent enterprise IT shows, it covers all points of view on critical technologies. It should be a great week.

Rick Gimbel
VP of Marketing | TechMarketeers

Well, after a B.S. in mathematics I went on to gain my M.S. in Computer Science from Purdue and began my 30-year career as a software engineer. I transitioned into marketing fairly early in my career and have held numerous VP of Marketing positions. Along the way I have worked in hardware, software and even supercomputing organizations (Adtron, JD Edwards, Sequent), from startups (Flashline & Apollo) to Fortune 500 companies such as Motorola, Digital Equipment, and Control Data.

I have also spent time with other specialist marketing firms such as Neodata, a database marketing and fulfillment company where I fine-tuned my understanding in 1-1 marketing and the use of analytics in all campaigns.

I currently serve as the VP of Marketing for TechMarketeers, specialists in hi-tech marketing.
