Powering the Evolution of Business Technology
Our editorial team has painstakingly vetted dozens of early and mid-stage enterprise start-ups and invited CEOs from 70+ of the very best companies to present at and take part in this year’s conference. In just two days, you’ll gain a full perspective of the technologies poised to revolutionize such key areas as: Business Services – Network Technology – Open Source – Security – Software – and Storage.
Here’s a sneak peak of just some of the other highlights of Enterprise Innovations 2007:
• Individual keynote interviews with Symantec EVP and CTO Mark Bregman, who has helped spearhead the software giant’s $20+ billion worth of M&As over the past two years; Riverbed Technology CEO Jerry Kennelly, who’s overseen the company’s blistering 300% customer growth since January 2006; and SAP’s SVP of Enterprise Information Management, Nimish Mehta, who now spearheads the company’s touted SOA operations (formerly a close consort to now-rival Oracle’s CEO, Larry Ellison).
• A rare look at the technology pain points of major corporate customers during a keynote panel featuring CIOs of Latham & Watkins, Ross Stores and the San Francisco Giants
• Insight into emerging opportunities within the network and security areas during a joint interview with David Golob of Francisco Partners (one of the world’s largest technology-focused private equity firms) and Amish Mehta of Vector Capital (owners of Cinderella story Corel Corp.), two firms that recently joined forces to purchase Watchguard Technologies for $150 million.
Our program also features investment insights from a panel of top partners at Battery Ventures, Sigma Partners, Silver Lake Partners and Sequoia Capital as well as analyst outlooks from Cowen & Co., Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and Pacific Coast Securities. In addition, senior executives from Benchmark Capital, Goldman Sachs and Sun Microsystems will offer insights into achieving liquidity in the coming months.
