KEMP Technologies Executive to Keynote North American CIO Event
KEMP Technologies today announced that KEMP co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer Peter Melerud will deliver the keynote address at this year’s North American CIO event, hosted by Global Business Intelligence (GBI). The CIO event brings together innovative businesses and respected professionals from around the world to share ideas and discuss current IT trends. This year’s event, August 30 – 31 in New York City, will explore “the digital enterprise” and ways CIOs can use technology to gain a competitive advantage.
Melerud’s keynote address asks, “Is your legacy application delivery infrastructure getting in the way of your cloud adoption strategy?” He will delve into the challenges of migrating enterprise applications to the cloud, and reasons why only one-fifth of enterprise workloads have been migrated. Melerud will also explore the next-generation of application delivery controllers (ADC) and how they can help organizations reduce costs, accelerate the process, and mitigate the risks of workload migration.
“The CIO event is the ideal forum to build relationships, share information and interact with the world’s leading business minds,” said Melerud. “It is a truly global event with international perspectives on current IT trends. Perhaps its greatest strength is that it offers the opportunity for networking with other attendees. I am honored to deliver the event’s keynote to share insights into how organizations can become better prepared to adopt a more efficient cloud strategy.”
Peter Melerud has more than twenty years of experience in engineering and product development for technology companies, with extensive experience designing network infrastructure, business intelligence, data management, high-end network and systems integration solutions. At KEMP, he specializes in the strategic direction of KEMP products and the propagation of the value proposition and solutions for the application infrastructure market.
The CIO event offers an opportunity for business leaders to network with Fortune 1000 CIOs and enjoy one-to-one meetings, interactive panel discussions, workshops, and special sessions with top executive speakers from a wide assortment of businesses and market segments. It incorporates a dynamic mix of thought leadership and best practice strategies to help executives make the right decisions for their organizations.
