BOSTON, February 13, 2007 -- BMC Software Chief Technology Officer Tom Bishop will keynote United Devices' annual conference next month discussing how the latest wave of virtualization approaches combine automation and capacity management to produce real business value, United Devices announced today.
UD:07 will be March 7 and 8 in Boston at the Sheraton Hotel near Copley Square. More than a dozen grid and virtualization visionaries are slated to speak during the two-day assemblage themed "Grid in 2007: Virtual Reality."
"Whether it is globalization or energy consumption, today's evolving IT landscape is keeping us all up at night searching for solutions," Bishop said in an abstract of his talk. "Is the answer new hardware, new software or a team of service professionals? Often the solution is just making better use of what we have. Virtualization offers a way to use IT resources more efficiently. But while virtual servers are a hot topic, we have only just touched the surface of what virtualization can do."
Bishop's keynote titled "Transforming the Enterprise: Where Virtualization Meets Automation" discusses how automation and capacity management combine to align IT with the needs of the business, enabling organizations to lower total cost of ownership, deliver faster and more comprehensive services, increase revenue opportunities and reduce overall risk to the business.
BMC Software (NYSE: BMC) is a leading global provider of enterprise management solutions that empower companies to manage IT from a business perspective.
"Tom's keynote address will cap a truly outstanding agenda of speakers including more than a dozen thought leaders from a range of global industries," said United Devices Chief Executive Officer Ben Rouse. "This year's conference aims to cut through the noise surrounding mainstream virtualization by showcasing practical implementations that prove value in the data center and managed services arenas."
"Participants will analyze real case studies that demonstrate how leading IT organizations are achieving business value via high-level automation approaches that only grid can deliver," he said.
In addition to Bishop, other speakers at UD:07 include:
Sponsors this year include Hewlett Packard, AMD, Satyam Computer Services and Voltaire.
The conference is targeted toward business sponsors and executive decision-makers who want to connect with colleagues now deploying advanced virtualization strategies, including higher level automation in data centers and for managed services.
