Amip-Shah.jpgSession ID IT for IoT: Next-generation information technology from HP Labs, for the “Internet of Things”

Presenter: Amip Shah, Research manager

Tracks: Big Data, Cloud, Enterprise Services, Software

Tuesday, June 10, 11:30 AM – 12:00 PM


As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a reality, everything we touch—from the appliances in our homes to the roads in our cities—will be monitored by sensor networks. Installing these sensors in localized networks is the first step. Disruptive value will come from the ability to harness and mine the data gathered from across these connected devices. From public safety and personal health to electric grids and traffic systems, exabyte-scale applications with quadrillions of rows of data are rapidly becoming real—and will soon become commonplace. During this session, you will learn how technology built at HP Labs for the New Style of IT is being leveraged to harness the value afforded by the emerging Internet of Things. Moving across the IoT value chain—from data acquisition through data security, data fusion, data storage, and data analytics—you will see examples that illustrate how IT for IoT can disrupt diverse consumer, commercial, and industrial applications. 


Martin Arlitt.jpgSession ID DT3436 - Taming the exponential volume of Big Data from the Internet of Things with HP Vertica

Presenter: Martin Arlitt, Senior Research Scientist

Tracks: Big Data, Software

Subtracks: Big Data Analysis

Tuesday, June 10, 1:00 – 1:30 PM


Soon, the Internet of Things will make today’s view of Big Data appear very small. With everything from wearable devices to medical equipment, cars, and buildings becoming increasingly connected, businesses will soon face the challenge of managing massive volumes of Big Data, growing at unprecedented speeds. Are you ready to handle this data onslaught? Do you know what opportunities will soon be presented to your business? Join us at this session to see firsthand how the HP Vertica Analytics Platform can prepare you for the upcoming Internet of Things. Discover how this platform can help you capitalize on new business opportunities—from usage-based insurance to predictive maintenance to smart metering and more. See how HP Vertica handles petabyte-scale volume and growth at unprecedented speeds—helping you prepare for the massive volumes of data created by the Internet of Things.


Julio-Guijarro.jpgSession ID DT3622 - Radical simplification of IT: Peek into the future of cloud computing with HP Labs

Presenter: Julio Guijarro

Tracks: Cloud

Tuesday, June 10, 1:45 – 2:15 PM


Today, the cloud is a reality. Its effects are starting to appear in businesses—from new business models to radical transformations in how we approach new IT projects and information management. The cloud is the result of an evolutionary effort to radically simplify the way IT is consumed—but we have only just begun. During this session, we will explore the evolution of the cloud and, based on HP Labs’ research, learn about predictions for what is coming next. With this information, you can be better prepared to make informed business decisions in today’s fast-changing landscape.


Kimberly Keeton.jpgSession ID DT3620 - Thirty billion new connected devices: A sneak peek at how HP Labs is reinventing the architecture of computing to cope

Presenter: Kimberly Keeton, Principal Researcher

Track: Enterprise Group

Subtracks: Converged Systems, Servers, Storage, Networking

Wednesday, June 11, 10:30 – 11:00 AM


By 2020, 30 billion intelligent devices will connect to the internet. These devices will produce an unprecedented amount of data. The infrastructure required to collect, process, store, and analyze these volumes requires transformational changes to the foundations of computing. HP Labs is developing radical new approaches to the large-scale, high-performance infrastructure required to support the new data-centric world. In this session, you will learn about emerging trends and HP’s vision for future software-defined systems that fuse memory and storage, flatten complex data hierarchies, bring processing closer to the data, and enable system security at the point of attack. HP Labs’ research in non-volatile memory lays the foundation for universal memory. Energy-optimized System-on-a-chip (SoC) designs and advances in integrated photonics will allow these systems to communicate at the speeds that data-centric computing will require.


Tomas_Sander_Headshot_web.jpgSession ID DT3458 -- Fighting next-generation adversaries and automatically sharing threat intelligence

Presenter: Tomas Sander, Senior Researcher

Tracks: Security, Software

Subtrack: Security

Wednesday, June 11, 10:30 -- 11:00 AM


Today’s adversaries are technically advanced, structured around an underground market, and using paradigm shifts in technology to compromise more victims. Through specialization and collaboration, attackers are becoming more effective. They continue to cause widespread damage and create security issues that are extremely difficult to identify, even as IT systems become more secure. However, recent advances in technology create the foundation for a new type of industry-wide threat intelligence exchange. This collaborative forum allows potential targets to organize and leverage threat intelligence more quickly and effectively. During this session, you will examine next-generation techniques for identifying, anonymizing, and sharing threat intelligence. You will also explore use cases for speeding response times and preventing breaches.


Jaap-thumbnail.jpgSession ID DT3619 – When Big Data becomes truly big and truly fast: A sneak peek at HP Labs’ analytics research

Presenter: Jaap Suermondt, VP and Director of the Analytics Lab  

Track: Big Data

 Wednesday, June 11, 12:45 – 1:15 PM


Big Data is growing at a faster pace than anticipated. HP Labs’ analytics research will enable HP to help you integrate data sources, transform and automate business processes, and act on relevant insights—all at unprecedented scale. In this session, you will learn about these emerging trends and HP’s vision for future analytics systems, technologies and infrastructure. We will explore improvements in data search, visualization, and immersion; how to turn data into actionable information; and sensing and control analytics to better understand the physical world around us. Today, we are shaping the future of analytics at zetta scale—when Big Data becomes truly big and truly fast.


Bill-Horne_web.jpgSession ID DT3629 – Big Data for security in action: A sneak peek at the future of security with HP Labs  

Presenter: Bill Horne, Research Manager  

Tracks: Big Data, Security

Thursday, June 12, 12:00 – 12:30 PM


Today’s enterprises generate terabytes of security event data. These volumes are increasing exponentially as the security landscape grows ever more complex. But how can you turn this data into actionable security insight? During this session, you’ll learn how HP Labs is working with HP Global Cyber Security to detect threats and attacks on HP’s network using Big Data analytics. This emerging solution integrates key technologies in HP Software’s portfolio, including ArcSight, TippingPoint, and Vertica. We will explore novel techniques for collecting and analyzing ten billion events per day, including new ways to identify botnets, new techniques to visualize data at this scale, and how HP is turning research findings into actionable threat intelligence.
