Conférence DLD 2013 : tendances entremêlées

MUNICH, December 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Pour la neuvième fois, Hubert Burda Media réunit les pionniers de l'ère numérique à Munich

« Patterns That Connect » (Tendances entremêlées) est le thème de la conférence internationale DLD sur l'innovation de Burda qui se déroulera à Munich du 20 au 22 janvier 2013. Chez DLD, les esprits créatifs, les entrepreneurs numériques ainsi que les plus grands artistes, scientifiques des données et autres aborderont les problèmes les plus pertinents d'aujourd'hui et de demain et exploreront les nouvelles opportunités (commerciales). Les principaux sujets de DLD13 sont le commerce électronique, la sécurité/confidentialité numérique, les problèmes éducatifs/sociaux et l'avenir du divertissement.

Les principaux éléments à l'ordre du jour comprennent l'avenir du commerce électronique et le thème d'actualité qu'est la sécurité/confidentialité numérique. Les autres sessions se focaliseront sur les changements apportés dans le secteur éducatif. Comment et, surtout, qu'apprendrons-nous dans le futur ? Quels sont les défis stratégiques et logistiques de la vente au détail en ligne ? Comment les nouveaux appareils mobiles font-ils évoluer le comportement des consommateurs et des utilisateurs de médias ? Une personnalisation du contenu sera-t-elle requise à l'avenir ? Quelles innovations technologiques changeront notre société dans les années à venir ? Les intervenants et participants à DLD13 aborderont ces questions et d'autres depuis diverses perspectives.

Les intervenants des précédentes conférences DLD incluaient les entrepreneurs numériques Marc Zuckerberg, Eric Schmidt, Sean Parker et Marissa Mayer, mais aussi Lady Gaga, les nobélisés Martti Ahtisaari et Dan Kahneman, des scientifiques tels que Craig Venter ainsi que Deepak Chopra, Paulo Coelho et les architectes Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster et Rem Koolhaas. Lors de la prochaine édition qui aura lieu en janvier 2013, Stephanie Czerny réunira une nouvelle fois à Munich des pionniers et esprits créatifs influents de l'industrie numérique, des médias, de la politique, des affaires, des finances, des sciences, de la société, de l'art et du design à l'échelle mondiale.

Les intervenants confirmés incluent notamment :

Commerce électronique

  • Jack Dorsey, co-fondateur et PDG de Square
  • Tony Hsieh, PDG de Zappos
  • David Marcus, PDG de Paypal
  • René Schuster, PDG de Telefónica Deutschland
  • Peter Thiel, partenaire chez Founders Fund

Sécurité/Confidentialité

  • Eugene Kaspersky, expert en sécurité
  • Sunil Madhu, fondateur et PDG de Socure
  • Sanghvi Ruchi, directrice technologique de Dropbox

« Patterns that Connect », le thème de DLD13, fait allusion à une large variété de sujets : depuis les codes binaires qui servent de base au traitement des informations numériques, en passant par l'évolution des comportements humains et les algorithmes qui stipulent les actions à titre d'instructions de programmation, jusqu'à la visualisation des données qui révèle des tendances dans la circulation de celles-ci. Les tendances décomposent les complexités, rendent les données volumineuses (big data) tangibles et applicables via l'identification de tendances, et représentent le lien avec une conception structurée. DLD se considère comme un « reconnaisseur de tendances » des structures qui deviendront importantes à l'avenir. Cependant, cette conférence décompose aussi les tendances pour les réassembler dans un nouveau contexte.

« Les données nous rapprochent des tendances complexes de tout ce que nous faisons. Elles changent la vision que nous avons de nos vies, sociétés et valeurs. DLD identifie et réunit les plus importants moteurs dans ces différents domaines pour discuter des opportunités futures », a déclaré Steffi Czerny, fondatrice et directrice de DLD.

Cette année, les présidents de l'évènement, l'éditeur Dr. Hubert Burda et l'investisseur Dr. Yossi Vardi, accueilleront environ 800 participants internationaux au HVB-Forum de Munich. Les plus grands évènements de la conférence comprennent le Dîner des présidents et des intervenants dans le Centre communautaire juif (20 janvier), la DLD StarNight (21 janvier) et la présentation des « Aenne Burda Awards pour un leadership créatif » (Aenne Burda Awards for Creative Leadership). Les précédents lauréats de cette récompense étaient Arianna Huffington (Huffington Post), Marissa Mayer (ancienne employée de Google) et Mitchell Baker (Mozilla Firefox). L'évènement de clôture traditionnel de la conférence DLD est une fois de plus le DLD FOCUS Nightcap au Forum économique mondial de Davos (23 janvier).

Pour la seconde fois, DLD Campus et l'Internet Business Cluster (IBC) réuniront un pionnier du numérique avec des étudiants : en effet, il est prévu que Peter Thiel, l'un des premiers investisseurs de Facebook, présente un exposé public à l'Université de Munich (LMU).

Cloud Expo Breaking News
MapDB is an Apache-licensed open source database specifically designed for Java developers. The library uses the standard Java Collections API, making it totally natural for Java developers to use and adopt, while scaling database size from GBs to TBs. MapDB is very fast and supports an agile approach to data, allowing developers to construct flexible schemas to exactly match application needs and tune performance, durability and caching for specific requirements.
APIs came about to help companies create and manage their digital ecosystem, enabling them not only to reach more customers through more devices, but also create a large supporting ecosystem of developers and partners. While Facebook, Twitter and Netflix were the early adopters of APIs, large enterprises have been quick to embrace the concept of APIs and have been leveraging APIs as a connective tissue that powers all interactions between their customers, partners and employees. As enterprises embrace APIs, some very specific Enterprise API Adoption patterns and best practices have started emerging. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will talk about the most common enterprise API patterns and will discuss how enterprises can successfully launch an API program.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
Today, developers and business units are leading the charge to cloud computing. The primary driver: faster access to computing resources by using the cloud's automated infrastructure provisioning. However, fast access to infrastructure exposes the next friction point: creating, delivering, and operating applications much faster. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Bernard Golden, VP of Strategy at ActiveState, will discuss why solving the next friction point is critical for true cloud computing success and how developers and business units can leverage service catalogs, frameworks, and DevOps to achieve the true goal of IT: delivering increased business value through applications.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.

Chief Security Officers (CSO), CIOs and IT Directors are all concerned with providing a secure environment from which their business can innovate and customers can safely consume without the fear of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. To be successful in today's hyper-connected world, the enterprise needs to leverage the capabilities of the web and be ready to innovate without fear of DDoS attacks, concerns about application security and other threats. Organizations face great risk from increasingly frequent and sophisticated attempts to render web properties unavailable, and steal intellectual property or personally identifiable information. Layered security best practices extend security beyond the data center, delivering DDoS protection and maintaining site performance in the face of fast-changing threats.
