Countdown to ONUG Fall 2017

Looking forward to participating in the ONUG Fall 2017 conference in New York, October 17 & 18.

I’ll be one of three judges for ONUG’s new Right Stuff Innovation Awards, which will be awarded to the companies presenting in the PoC Theater who are developing innovative products and solutions that are most closely aligned with the guidelines published by two ONUG working groups:

As I wrote in this blog, ONUG is now expanding its focus to helping enterprise IT managers address the challenges of hybrid multi-cloud application, infrastructure and network deployments, fostering cross-industry vendor collaboration in order to drive the development of more open, software-driven and cost-effective solutions.

I’m also moderating a Birds of a Feather session on Software-Defined Application, Infrastructure and Network Monitoring, with a strong focus on hybrid multi-cloud environments. This will be a forum for enterprise DevOps, ITOps, NetOps and SecOps users to share their experiences, challenges, concerns and recommendations with the vendor community. The session will immediately follow the Monitoring & Analytics Meetup where the M&A working group will discuss the progress ONUG is making in this operationally critical area.

Hope to see you in New York in just over a week, and if you are able to attend, be sure to check out some of the PoC Theater presentations and the vendors exhibiting in the Technology Showcase.
