Our Unique Summit Format

The Advanced Scale Forum is not a typical trade show. It is a “power summit” focused on bridging the challenges that CTOs, CIOs, database, systems & solutions architects, and other decision-makers involved in building systems and applications that require increasing amounts of performance and throughput. Focus areas will include Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Blockchain, Cloud, Deep Learning, HPC, Hybrid IT, IoT – Edge to Core Analytics, Machine Learning and more. By establishing relevant themes and providing opportunities such as boardroom sessions, 1:1 meetings, and networking & entertainment sessions, this summit accelerates the search for solutions, getting everyone closer to their goals. Our VIPs leave the summit well versed and up to speed on the state-of-the-art technology solutions available to them.

The Advanced Scale Forum Summit Experience

Plenary Sessions

During the plenary sessions, summit delegates across the spectrum of industries will hear technical insights from subject matter experts solving advanced scale computing challenges. Presentations are tailored by conference co-chairs, Datanami Managing Editor, Alex Woodie and Doug Black, EnterpriseTech’s Managing Editor, and informed by an advisory board engaged with the challenges and opportunities at the advanced scale level of computing. The content is designed to provide the audience with in-depth information addressing the trends and opportunities facing today’s organizations moving into new paradigms in computing.

Board Room Solution Sessions

This second phase of the summit offers summit delegates with BOF boardroom sessions that put similar profiled attendees into board rooms that examine case studies in advanced scale computing solutions by leading solutions providers followed by open discussion. These engaging sessions encourage dialogue and create real engagement that helps with information sharing and networking.

1:1 Meetings

The most powerful part of the summit — the 1:1 meetings — put users in across a table with leading solutions providers to discuss challenges and solutions. Executives will sit down for private round-robin discussions with pre-selected solutions providers who are able to help with their current challenges. These meetings are designed to create the opportunity to explore new possibilities and discover new solutions for solving Advanced Scale challenges.

Networking and Entertainment

Hard work deserves a reward, and our summit offers multiple opportunities to unwind and build rapport with peers through exquisite dining, entertainment, and networking events. The event kicks off with an optional round of golf and each day consists of breakfast, lunch, and breaks for continued networking opportunities. Each day will conclude with a night full of networking and entertainment designed for delegate and sponsors to break bread, relax and get to know one another on a social level – creating a networking environment that is second to none.
