Senior Vice President of IBM Software Group Robert LeBlanc discusses the impact of technology--and, specifically, open source technology--on business decisions in the past, present and future.
The way you work has changed--the data you produce grows and grows as each new mobile device is connected and filled with applications and information. Admins turn to technology and innovation to address issues of scale, security, availability, flexibility, and expense.
Hear how IBM, Red Hat, and their communities of interest helped bring about this fundamental change, and how LeBlanc sees the industry changes that must take place to retain this innovation and meritocracy for the future.
LeBlanc speaks about innovation through openness in virtualization, big data, and cloud and the usefulness of standardization, structure, and automation shared by projects and between vendors.
LeBlanc predicts the continued growth of big data, and the usefulness of increasingly complex tools and standards like Hadoop and OpenStack to collect, store, and analyze that data in profound and industry-changing ways. Open source, open minds, and open computing will be crucial to these efforts, and to our technological future.
