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.
