Speakers identified for Storage Visions and IoT Conference India 2018 in Mumbai

Kolkata, India and San Jose, CA, USA – November 20, 2017 – Coughlin Associates (USA), in collaboration with Future Tech Lab (India) brings you a two-day conference on Storage Visions and the Internet of Things (IoT) in Mumbai, India on February 23-24, 2018.  Speaker and sponsor submissions are open and we plan to have an exciting program with digital storage vendors, integrators and users in India.

Among our speakers will be Ashish Nadkarni, Program Director of Computing Platforms for IDC.  Ashish will talk about Edge Computing—The future of Infrastructure.  Ashish will explore the changing nature of IT infrastructure thanks to Innovation Accelerators such as the Internet of Things.  He will review trends such as edge computing, accelerated computing, heterogeneous computing and composable infrastructure.

Tom Coughlin, President of Coughlin Associates and co-organizer of the conference will talk about Digital Storage Trends for Professional Media and Entertainment.  Higher resolution and 360-degree content as well as international collaborative projects will drive the need for more storage capacity for both high performance and archive applications as well as the rise of digital storage in the cloud.  Artificial intelligence applied to media content as well as social media will result in new ways to find and use stored content and will become as ubiquitous with digital storage as deduplication has been in many industries.

Sponsors and exhibitors are being sought.   There are various levels of economical sponsorships available, from Diamond to Bronze with increasing exposure with the higher levels.  Don't miss this opportunity to engage an interested Indian market.
