Mobility + Hyperconverged Systems

Find out what’s behind rapid transformations in mobility and how hyperconverged systems will help you beat rivals to value.

Speed and Agility: Vital to Mobility, and to IT

Self-driving cars, connected cities, multi-billion dollar apps: the mobility and transportation sector has seen incredible recent transformations, all led by IT. In this session, filmed live in Berlin, you’ll find out the common themes, trends and technologies driving this revolution, and how you can achieve some of that success for your own business. Experts including the editor of WIRED offer a number of examples as to how and why hyperconvergence help get businesses ready for the transportation revolution taking place.

The Idea Economy – the IT-driven concept that disruption is all around us, and that the ability to turn an idea into a new product or a new industry is more accessible than ever before – is change like we’ve never seen it before. Drawing on research for his 2015 award-winning book The Industries of the Future (a New York Times bestseller), Alec Ross shows how we’ve got here, taking us on an insightful history of mobility. He shares his experience inside Google’s self-driving car in Silicon Valley, explaining what he learnt there about what the future holds for all of transport users (and not ‘owners’) in the future. Building on this, editor-in-chief of WIRED Germany Nikolaus Roettger offers an astute analysis of the three major themes in the mobility/transport sector: sustainability, urbanization, and digitalization. He explains why the automotive industry needs hyperconvergence to change and adapt more quickly than ever before.
