Keynote Speakers

Keynotes on Monday, June 3

Matt Aslett, Research Director, 451 Research – “The Rise of Cloud-Native and Its Relationship to In-Memory Computing in Delivering Digital Transformation”  
451 Research views the rise of cloud-native computing and its associated technologies and methodologies as truly transformative. Just like DevOps, cloud-native technologies and methodologies are now being attached to digital transformation efforts, and they are expanding their presence in enterprise IT. This keynote will provide an overview of 451 Research’s perspective on cloud-native and how it relates to in-memory computing and hybrid operational and analytic processing (HOAP) in the context of digital transformation.

Nikita Ivanov, Co-founder & CTO, GridGain Systems – “The Future of In-Memory Computing in a Rapidly Changing World”
Cloud computing has been growing rapidly, non-volatile RAM products will soon become widely available, and in-memory computing technology is advancing rapidly. At the same time, digital transformation is unleashing massive quantities of data, often streaming data, which requires real-time ingestion, processing and analysis. These evolving use cases are driving the deployment of hybrid in-memory computing architectures – known as HTAP, HOAP or Translytical – that process both transactions and analytics. This keynote will lay out the path forward and the benefits for companies as the in-memory computing industry evolves to support these emerging technologies and use cases.

Keynotes on Tuesday, June 4

Alex McDonald, Director and Vice Chair, SNIA Europe – “Persistent Memory; An Industry Status and Update” 
We’ve been promised a new technology for memory and storage for the last decade or so, a new type of memory that’s persistent and capacious -- like the flash memory used in solid state storage devices, but much faster. This memory is fast enough to compare favorably with much more expensive and less capacious volatile DRAM and can be offered at a price that makes it economically viable to use for speeding up – by several factors -- a wide range of applications. This presentation will cover what everyone should know about this hugely important technology.

Jonny Wray, Head of Discovery Informatics, e-therapeutics – “Data-Driven Drug Discovery”
The drug discovery industry is facing a productivity crisis, with new approvals taking longer and costing more. Meanwhile, the discovery of treatments for complex diseases of aging are proving intractable. This keynote will discuss the novel computational approach to early drug discovery pioneered at e-therapeutics, which aims to address some of these issues, along with the software platform enabling that discovery process.
