Retail + Hyperconverged Systems

Discover the three major trends reshaping the entire retail landscape, and how hyperconverged systems can help your business scale, adapt and innovate to stay ahead of the game.

Things Are Changing Faster Than Ever: How Do You Keep Up?

Like many other sectors, retail faces massive and disruptive challenges, due to the new and emerging technologies that are driving the Idea Economy, the era of rapid change and technological disruption that we all now live and work in. In this session, filmed at VMworld 2016 in Barcelona on 18 October, you’ll learn what’s behind these disruptions from an IT consultant, then hear from the CTO of a fast-growing app who explains how these disruptions (and opportunities) are met in the real world. All of which are made possible, argue experts from HPE, with appliances such as the Hyper Converged 380.

Prof. Dr. Gerrit Tamm outlines three perspectives on what’s behind the disruptions inherent to the Idea Economy, and how hyperconverged systems can help businesses not just overcome them but gain significant value and success in doing so. Revenue sources are shifting, supplier and customer relationships have changed, and data itself has to be considered an asset – all of which lead him to suggest that it is only technology like hyperconverged systems that offer retail organizations the ability to transform themselves in the ways needed. Ramzi Rizk, founder and CTO of online photography marketplace EyeEm, shares similar thoughts as he describes how they grew from a start-up to a community of 20 million photographers who collaborate, share and sell their work to individuals and brands all around the world. Building “the visual search of tomorrow”, he says, is about having the ability to sort through and find value in truly huge amounts of data.

They are also building the ‘image search of tomorrow’ to allow brands and agencies to find photos that will get results.

Before founding EyeEm, Ramzi was a PhD candidate with years of research and lectures on the social, economical and technological aspects of privacy in Social Media. He is a passionate software architect, photographer and pianist.
