October 18th, 2018: How innovation will change the Way the World Works

Technological change is going very fast. This applies to the data center industry, but also for everything in our daily life. The change of technology and digital transformation starts today. Sound a bit woolly? Yes, but actually you know that it is true. Do you, as an IT responsible person, know what is going to happen to you, what will be the impact for your company or your own life?

IBM and Datacenter.com are joining forces. At this interactive lunch and learn event we give you the necessary insights to broaden your knowledge in insights. Gerard Smit, IBM’s Chief Technology Officer and IBM Distinguished Engineer will elaborate on the “5 in 5” IBM forecast for the future, with the topics such as: blockchain, cryptography and artificial intelligence (AI).
