IM Leadership Summit – Sunnyvale
On April 19, 2018, Microsoft is hosting Infrastructure Masons’ third Leadership Summit. We’re inviting 100+ of our most experienced End User and Partner members, VIPs, and Sun alumni to participate in this invitation only event.
Keynote – Scott McNealy, The Network is still the computer
We are pleased to announce that Scott McNealy will be joining as the keynote speaker to discuss the past and its implications on the future. Scott McNealy is a tech industry icon. As co-founder and CEO of Sun Microsystems, he led some of the biggest disruptions in the compute industry during his 30+ year career. Sun’s original vision is still relevant today.
Sun was founded with one driving vision. A vision of computers that talk to each other no matter who built them. A vision in which technology works for you, not the other way around. While others protected proprietary, stand-alone architectures, we focused on taking companies into the network age. As a result, we’ve become the dot in .com, providing systems and software with the scalability and reliability needed to drive the electronic marketplace.
We need your help in selecting the topics you would like us to ask Scott. Please complete the quick survey below to provide your input.
This year we are trying a new format to leverage the iMasons brain trust. We have asked a leading industry journalist to propose 10 hot topics for the builders and operators of the digital age (that’s you!) to provide feedback/perspective on. These topics will be posted to iMason’s membership through a poll, to rank the questions in order of interest. Attendees will be participating in think tank sessions to address the top two questions. The journalist will be present to share iMasons members’ perspective to the industry.
