Coveo Chairman and CEO Louis Tetu to Address UP 2012 Cloud Computing Conference

Tetu to Offer Expertise on "Solving the Cloud's Hidden Problem: Access to Knowledge in a Fragmented Environment"

QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 12/11/12 --


  • Today Coveo announced that Chairman and CEO Louis Têtu will lead a session at the UP 2012 Cloud Computing Conference on Wednesday, December 12 in San Francisco, CA.

  • Têtu will speak on the topic, Solving the Cloud's Hidden Problem: Access to Knowledge in a Fragmented Environment. He will outline the data fragmentation challenge the cloud provides, including how unified indexing technology can access, correlate and present knowledge found in cloud-based systems. The session runs from 2:05 - 2:35 p.m. PT.

  • Têtu understands the challenges cloud-based systems provide. His last venture, Taleo, is one of the largest cloud software providers in the world, bought by Oracle for $2B. Coveo recently launched Coveo for Salesforce to consolidate relevant information in a cloud-based environment.

  • UP 2012 will cover such themes as how the cloud aligns with enterprise to streamline business processes, looking at core topics including Big Data, BI and Knowledge Management; Business Agility & Continuity; and Enterprise Automation and DevOps, among other topics.

Supporting Quote:

  • Louis Têtu, Chairman and CEO, Coveo: "The combination of Big Data, the social media explosion and the move of many organizational systems to the cloud is increasing data fragmentation. This confluence of circumstances makes it a huge challenge for companies to get actionable insight, particularly for customer engagement. Unified indexing technology is the way forward for people to access fragmented information and collaborate around the social enterprise."

Today, we have more data to manage than ever. We also have better algorithms that help us access our data faster. Cloud is the driving force behind many of the data warehouse advancements we have enjoyed in recent years. But what are the best practices for storing data in the cloud for machine learning and data science applications?
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps for delivering enhanced customer experience (with mobile and cloud adoption), how to accelerate development and management of SoE app APIs with API management.
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage of data and analytics in the cloud, Architecture, integration, governance and security scenarios and Key challenges and success factors of moving data and analytics to the cloud
