Breakout Sessions

  • Ricky Warrington
  • Cyber threat intelligence
    Speaker: Ricky Warrington - Head of Managed Cyber Security Services and Operations, Fujitsu America, Inc.
    Fujitsu's Cyber Threat Intelligence service provides customers with advance notification of potential cyber-attacks. By gathering intelligence from various public as well as restricted access sources and then analyzing its explicit or implied use, we can help customers predict future compromise attempts. We work on the principle that preparation is everything to counter the inevitable. Attacks cannot be avoided, but coping with them makes the difference. Deploying effective technologies and then operating them efficiently is a necessary and sensible activity - but it will never be enough.

  • Amol Selot
  • Bank of the Future
    Speaker: Amol Selot - Head of Financial Services, Digital, Fujitsu America, Inc.
    Changing market context and industry forces are driving new opportunities, threats and requirements for the traditional banking model. Significant margin pressure across product lines, increasing cost of compliance, flat or declining revenues, rapid technological change, new entrants and digital disruptors, legacy overhang and sophisticated customers looking elsewhere for answers are putting pressures on Banks. Banks need to review their strategic ambitions, business models and decide what services to expose and what data and services they would need to consume, what skills they should hire to defend their position in the market.

  • Jonathan Schwartz
  • Fujitsu Retailing Taskforce
    Speaker: Jonathan Schwartz, Software Development Manager, Fujitsu America, Inc.
    A patent pending concept product developed by Fujitsu in cooperation with Samsung. Taskforce is a SaaS enterprise communication application designed for use in-store, store-to-store or anywhere across the enterprise. Using wearable technology like Samsung Smart Watches, Taskforce enables two-way communication for paging, alerts and scripted messaging. First to be integrated with Fujitsu POS and Self Service solutions, Taskforce will be used for wide range of in-store paging, remote responses to system requests, and associate and customer assistance calls. Later, across the enterprise, Taskforce will be used for store to store messaging, inventory lookup, transfers, task management, and even on-line order fulfillment.

    Andreas Bechter - Global Technical Alliance Manager Fujitsu at Veritas Technologies LLC
    Jake Smith - Director of Data Center Technologies at Intel Data Center Group

    What is Needed to Run Each and Every Hype Topic? The Iceberg Theory. Sailing through the wide world of IT infrastructures isn‘t too easy. But Fujitsu has got you covered: We make it easy to not only identify what‘s the right choice for your infrastructures, but we also show you what can be seen above and below the waterline. Due to digitalization there are significant challenges:  Cost savings remain a constant issue throughout, but companies are really focused now on growth and the development of new sources of revenue and new value chains around collaborations with suppliers, partners, and of course their customers. Doing this in a future-proof way so that the deployments that they make can be integrated with other customers. We will show examples of success stories and best practices both above the water and below the water. This session will enable the attendees to navigate the  Business Centric Data Center Hype and avoid the icebergs.

  • Sreedhar Kajeepeta
  • Enabling Enterprise Digital Transformation
    Speakers: Sreedhar Kajeepeta - Global Technology Officer, Fujitsu America, Inc.
    Sreesh Inguva - Digital Technology Services, Digital, Fujitsu America, Inc.

    It is clear from all the recent examples of digital disruptions (think ToysRUs, AmazonGo/WholeFoods, Cisco/AppDynamics etc) that adopting digital enabled business models at an ever-faster pace is a critical need rather than just an option. What is less clear however, is what technologies to adopt, how to adapt technologies and priorities to fit a particular envisioned business model, and how to deal with legacy technologies and infrastructure involved to speed up the digital transformation. As digital transformation partner of choice to large enterprises, Fujitsu has been applying a set of multi-pronged methodologies to help businesses find the right balance of digital approaches and the capabilities to help execute a chosen strategy. The key to success is realizing no single approach fits all use cases even within a single enterprise. Digital transformations should be all about outcomes, and the technology options have to be evaluated in the context of the new KPIs of the business units and the characteristics of the corresponding workloads involved.

  • Ajay Chander
  • Transparent AI for the Enterprise
    Speaker: Ajay Chander, Director, Digital Life Laboratory, Fujitsu Laboratories of America.
    Enterprises are now living and competing in the Augmented Age, where the default mindset is to seek to enhance human output with machine (AI) assistance. AI modules are currently being crafted as “black boxes” by engineers in a process that has inherent data and modeling biases, rendering such “Dark AI” unsuitable for interactive co-creation with humans. Fujitsu is working on adding transparency to AI interactions, towards building a more accessible, explainable, and tuneable AI partner for many human workflows and explorations in the enterprise. This talk will also introduce a Fujitsu solution for making decisions based on graph data, which we call Deep Tensor.

  • Paul Bresnahan
  • Industry 4.0: Smart Factory
    Speaker: Paul Bresnahan, Vice President, Manufacturing, Fujitsu America, Inc.
    Manufacturers have pioneered the use of sensors and data-based monitoring, but today‘s advanced networking, real-time controls and machine intelligence are taking the sector to a new level of sophistication and productivity. It is becoming a hyperconnected industry and hyperconnected technologties are enabling you to better understand your operation in real time to optimize and transform your interaction with suppliers, partners and customers. Fujitsu enables you to leverage the potential of Industrial IoT by intelligently connecting data, people, and business networks. Getting it right can be a game changer allowing you to offer new, smart services and shift to much more service orientated business models.

  • Dr. Arnab Roy
  • Security and Privacy of Big Data - A NIST Perspective
    Speaker: Dr. Arnab Roy, Research Manager at Fujitsu Laboratories of America and serves as a Co-Chair of the NIST Big Data Security and Privacy Subgroup
    The NIST Big Data Public Working Group (NBD-PWG) Security and Privacy Subgroup has been tasked to identify security and privacy issues that are specific to Big Data. With the key Big Data characteristics of variety, volume, velocity, and variability in mind, the subgroup gathered use cases from volunteers, developed a consensus-based security and privacy taxonomy, related the taxonomy to the NIST Big Data Reference Architecture (NBDRA), and validated the NBDRA by mapping the use cases to the NBDRA. Representative from Fujitsu Laboratories of America has been leading this initiative by serving as co-chair of this subgroup and in this talk, will present the current status of the work and focus on how it is expected to guide architectural decisions for fortifying big data projects moving forward.
