IBM will host another edition of its Open Cloud Architecture (OCA) Summit in The Emerald City on June 22â€”the day after DockerCon (giving attendees a welcome excuse to stay in Seattle for an extra day!).
The theme for this #IBMOCA event is “Learning to love open hybrid cloud.” As more businesses adopt hybrid cloud ecosystems, the need for open technology has never been greater. Weâ€™ve seen time and again that when systems speak a common language, innovation can happen faster. The same goes for hybrid cloud, and technologies like OpenStack, Cloud Foundry, Docker and more are helping to create the open ecosystem of the future.
The event will take place in Seattleâ€™s Palace Ballroom, and our packed agenda kicks off at 11:30am with a networking lunch. Weâ€™ll end with a closing reception from 4-4:45 p.m.
Weâ€™ve held OCA Summits before, but never like this one. Our lineup features an eclectic mix of industry leaders and IBMers who will discuss trends, offer industry viewpoints, share success stories and build on the open cloud architecture discourse. Attendees and speakers will include business and technology leaders, industry experts, analysts and members of the press.
Among the IBMers set to speak are Angel Diaz, IBMâ€™s vice president of Cloud Architecture and Technology, plus leaders from IBMâ€™s recent Seattle-based acquisition, Blue Box. More information can be found on our speaker page – check back often for updates!
