Accedia at InterConnect 2016

Accedia took part in IBM’s InterConnect, the conference highlighting the symbiosis between cloud & mobile nowadays.

Thousands of business partners, IBM executives and customers gathered in Las Vegas to get informed, discuss trends and come up with innovative approaches to taking businesses to a whole new level.

Тhe event took off with a Business Partner Summit, followed by 4 days of numerous sessions on various technology applications and success stories. Throughout the whole time one could visit the Solution EXPO, bringing together some of IBM’s most innovative product lines and prominent business partners.

Some of the spotlight announcements included the launching of a Swift runtime to let apps run on the server side as well, thus enabling enhanced data security and analytics. Further, Swift Package Catalog was presented to simplify apps development by creating various modules written in Swift. IBM and VMware announced an extensive partnership that will enable users to automatically set up templated workloads to run on premise, in the cloud or hybrid. Another partnership, focused on enhancing cloud capabilities was the introduction of Bluemix API within GitHub.

 Other widely discussed topics were the advance of the API economy, the importance of enterprise mobility, the influence of disruptive technologies, techniques for providing customer value through engaging content etc.

InterConnect drew the attendees’ attention to the capabilities of cognitive technology right in our hands. Yet, while technologies like Watson, Bluemix etc. can facilitate innovation, we still need creative minds and ideas to outthink limits and enable transformation.

At Accedia, we aim at sustaining strategic relationships with both IBM, other partners and users. We engaged actively in exchanging best practices and industry knowledge at InterConnect, while also taking part in the ongoing initiatives supporting the conference, such as the Stop Hunger Now cause, Meet the experts forums etc. The number of hands-on sessions and talks with international peers help us stay at the forefront of technology capabilities and lead customers to removing barriers before the value of IT investments.
