Keynote Speakers

Monday, June 25

Abe Kleinfeld, President & CEO, GridGain Systems - "In-Memory Computing - Unlocking the Digital Future" - 9:10 a.m. to 9:35 a.m.
All companies, regardless of the industry they serve, are rapidly becoming software companies in their own right, creating a real-time digital twin that virtually models their physical world. The competitive advantage gained by early adopters promises to be transformational and will dramatically improve the market agility of these companies as we progress toward a digital world.

David Follen, Chapter Lead at ING Belgium - "Embracing the Service Consumption Shift in Banking" - 9:35 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Legacy banking systems are not tailored for the drastic shift in consumer habits and service consumption. This keynote will look at how ING uses in-memory computing platforms to ensure a smooth transition for its customers.

Sam Lawrence, Co-founder and CTO, FSB Technology (UK) Ltd. - "In-Memory Computing and Sports Betting" - 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Competition, innovation, regulation and improved data collection have grown the complexity of Sports Betting systems at an unprecedented rate. Coupled with a massive growth in transaction volumes, Sports Betting provides a great case study for considering the relationship between technological advance and business need. This presentation is a personal look at the technical challenges the industry has faced, the solutions implemented by FSB Tech, and some best guesses of likely crunch points in the future.

Tuesday, June 26

Alex McDonald, Director and Vice Chair at SNIA Europe - "Persistent Memory, NVM Programming Model, and NVDIMMs" - 9:10 a.m. to 9:35 a.m.
The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), its technical work, and its outreach initiatives are key contributors to an ecosystem driving system memory and storage into a single, unified "persistent memory" entity. Learn how the SNIA Non Volatile Memory Technical Work Group is delivering specifications describing the behavior of a common set of software interfaces that provide access to non volatile memory, and how hardware and OSes support persistent memory today.

Matt Aslett, Research Director, 451 Research - "In-Memory Computing: Accelerating the Data Behind Digital Business and the Customer Experience" - 9:35 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
The need to engage more intelligently in real time during each transaction or interaction, whether it's to add personalization and recommend products or to help improve the overall customer experience across multiple channels, is driving the requirement for new infrastructure with much lower latency and much higher scalability. The solution that many companies have adopted is to move all the transactional and analytic data, and to collocate computing together in memory using in-memory computing technologies.

William Bain, CEO, ScaleOut Software, Chris Goodall, Director, CG Consultancy (UK) Limited, Sam Lawrence, Co-founder and CTO, FSB Technology (UK) Ltd, and Tim Wood, Head, HPC and Model Integration at ING Financial Markets - "In-Memory Computing Driving the Digital Enterprise: A Panel Discussion" - 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
A panel of industry experts, including end users and vendors from ING, FSB Technology, CG Consultancy, GridGain Systems and Scaleout Software, will discuss the impact of in-memory computing on the digital enterprise.
