The Distributed Computing Industry Association (DCIA) and Cloud Computing Association (CCA) are very pleased to welcome IBM to our all new co-hosted CLOUD DEVELOPERS SUMMIT & EXPO 2014 (CDSE:2014), featuring industry leaders Amazon, Dell, Google, Microsoft, NetSuite, Oracle, Rackspace, and SAP, among many other cloud-computing innovators.
Delegate registration at early-bird rates ends September 6th for CDSE:2014, which will take place in Austin, TX on October 1st and 2nd.
Business strategy and technical sessions covering the latest trends — Mobile Cloud, DevOps, and Big Data — as well as general interest cloud service topics will be featured along with a special focus on three economic sectors experiencing the most cloud adoption: Media & Entertainment, Government & Military, and Healthcare & Life Sciences.
IBM is a CDSE:2014 Gold Sponsor.
IBM’s keynote address, “Mobile Cloud Architectures,” by Sal Vella, Vice President, Rational Product Development and Customer Support, IBM Software Group, will highlight how government and healthcare entities, and businesses from banks to retailers, are using cloud-based mobile development and delivery environments to very quickly develop in the cloud, deliver on mobile, and test using innovative mobile and cloud capabilities.
Most industries are also demonstrating a strong preference for hybrid-cloud environments by blending the use of on-premises and off-premises environments. Real client examples will be featured.
Sal Vella oversees worldwide development and support of the extensive IBM Rational Product Portfolio.
In previous positions, he was the Vice President for IBM Software Group Architecture and Technology based in Somers, NY, responsible for the IBM Software Group Technical Architecture including architectural standards, support of industry standards, and setting standards and guidelines for IBM’s large software development organization.
Sal Vella was also IBM Vice President, Development, Distributed Data Servers and Data Warehousing, and IBM Director of Enterprise Content, responsible for managing IBM’s worldwide development of its Content Management software portfolio; and has also been responsible for the development of Storage Software and development of the DB2 Universal Database product set.
IBM will also present two workshops: “DevOps Services in the Cloud: From Idea to Production in Minutes” and “IBM Bluemix: Build, Deploy and Test a Mobile App in the Cloud.”
Sandhya Kapoor, Senior Software Engineer, IBM Ecosystem Development, Strategic Initiatives, will lead the DevOps Workshop.
Do you want to build, deploy, and optimize mobile and cloud applications quickly? Attend this session to experience a rapid development environment with integrated services for DevOps — you just need minutes, not weeks, to be up and running with a fully integrated environment offering all the services and tools you need.
If you need a secure, private environment to collaborate across your team and your external consultants (as others are doing today), this is the place for you: Get your hands on an end-to-end solution with the services you need to deliver your innovative ideas quickly. Mobile testing and feedback is included!
Sandhya Kapoor has been working in the Austin, TX Lab since 1989, contributing to IBM’s major software projects including Bluemix, IBM’s Cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Offering, Distributed Computing Environment (DCE), WebSphere Application Server, Stack products using WebSphere Application Server, Business Process Manager and Pure Application Systems.

Leigh Williamson, IBM Distinguished Engineer, IBM Mobile Software Development Strategy, CTO Team, Rational Software, will lead the Mobile Apps Workshop.
Do you need a way to have users just shake their mobile device to provide detailed In-app Bug Reporting — without time consuming manual entry on status and the issue? How about Over-the-Air Distribution to get your latest app version in the hands of testers fast?
What about Automated Crash Reporting and User Feedback and Sentiment? You need all of this and more. Attend this session to see how you can instantly gain these capabilities through the cloud. Plus, you’ll learn how you can build and deploy an App in minutes in the IBM Bluemix environment.
