Gehry Technologies to Speak on Cloud-Based Project Data Management and Collaboration at Autodesk University 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- Gehry Technologies (GT), a global leader in applying technology to building industry challenges, today announces that CTO and Co-Founder Dennis Shelden and Director of Global Enterprise Services Chris Tisdel will speak at Autodesk University 2012, scheduled to take place November 27th through 29th in Las Vegas, NV. GT will also be exhibiting at Booth #514.

Dr. Shelden's session, The Cloud and Connected BIM Process, will take place on Wednesday, November 28th from 10-11:30 AM. He looks forward to joining the world-renowned speaker line-up at AU this year, and notes that his session "will discuss advances in cloud-based project data management and collaboration, focused on impacts on project organization, data organization and contracting."

Mr. Tisdel will lead a session focused on The Owner's Enterprise BIM for Lifecycle Operations on Tuesday, November 27th from 10:30-12:00 PM. He is also pleased to join the roster this year and notes that his session "will foster an understanding of the next generation of globally accessible, concurrent Big BIM Data and collaboratively flexible and infinitely scalable metadata schemas."

Autodesk University's flagship event is its annual conference and exhibition in Las Vegas where design professionals from around the world attend classes, keynotes, product demonstrations, exhibits and networking events. Attendees can share ideas, work together to solve problems, and form professional relationships that they might not otherwise have. Attendees also get year-round access to over 650 online classes on the Autodesk University website.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
