IBM InterConnect

Join the biggest companies, the most innovative new startups, and the world’s foremost technical experts at IBM InterConnect. Rogue Wave CTO, Rod Cope, will join IBM visionaries to deliver two impactful sessions on open source software and support in the cloud era.

Speaking sessions

  • Title: Are your open source applications as secure as your legacy solutions?
  • Presenters: 
    • Rod Cope, CTO, Rogue Wave Software
    • Hector Luna, U.S. Software Services Sales Executive, IBM
  • When: Wednesday, March 22 at 11:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PST

Abstract: Your enterprise is becoming more reliant on open source software (OSS). With thousands of open source projects available, how do you know if the packages you choose are stable and will be actively supported long term? How can you demonstrate that your OSS-based solutions are as rock solid as the applications that you’ve grown to perfection over many years? Join us as IBM and Rogue Wave Software experts explore different perspectives on open source solutions and common security concerns. We will discuss real examples of clients who have gotten right and a few who have ‘misstepped’ along the way.

  • Title: Strategies and examples to get the most out of your open source and cloud infrastructure
  • Presenters: 
    • Rod Cope, CTO, Rogue Wave Software
    • Hector Luna, U.S. Software Services Sales Executive, IBM
    • Stefanie Chiras, Vice President, IBM Power Systems Offering Management, IBM
    • Camilla Sharpe, Global SWS MVS Business Manager, IBM
  • When: Thursday, March 23 at 10:30 - 11:15 a.m. PST

Abstract: As enterprises turn to the cloud, open source software plays a central role. But as enterprise adoption of open source software (OSS) grows, the underlying support structure only increases in complexity and fragments across multiple hardware, software, O/S, application vendors, and open source communities. Juggling all of these support sources increases complexity, increases costs, and decreases overall efficiency. So how do you create a support strategy that makes sense for the cloud? Join a panel of experts from Rogue Wave Software and IBM as they use real client examples to discuss how to optimize your support strategy to help you get the most from your open source and cloud infrastructure.
