Asterisk from Scratch - Part 1 - Intro to Asterisk & Asterisk Architecture
AFS-01
Asterisk from Scratch is the 2016 edition of the wildly popular Asterisk 1-2-3 Seminar. It is a well-rounded informative overview of the Asterisk Project, with a focus on the essentials a general "newbie" should know. All are welcome! Whether you are managing a team deploying an Asterisk implementation, evaluating potential replacements for a legacy telephony solution, or are simply new to Asterisk, this talk has something to offer you. This all-day seminar is broken into multiple sessions, beginning with background information such as the history of Asterisk and examples of fundamental configuration for a call flow and features such as Voicemail, IVR and will include a comparison of SIP channel driver configuration in Asterisk 13.

Keynote Presentation by iconectiv: Never Underestimate the Power of Identity
K-03
iconectiv
Every day, nearly every person, in every city, in every country is connecting to something or someone. We take these connections for granted, but should we in the digital world? The mobile identity is a powerful thing – and it seems simple and secure – but is it? The stakes are high with subscribers being defrauded of thousands and even a million dollars when that power gets into the wrong hands? How do we strive to ensure that a person’s identity is never compromised. Chris Drake, CTO, iconectiv, will discuss the power of the telephone number as an identity and provide insights and strategies for ensuring that this identity can be trusted as the gold standard for identifying and authenticating people in our digital economy.

Keynote Presentation by IBM - Infrastructure Innovation for the Cognitive and Cloud Era
K-04
Data is the new natural resource that is transforming industries and professions. Cognitive computing is redefining and re-imagining how we interact with data. To succeed in the Cognitive era, businesses must deliver applications that collect and mine oceans of data for actionable insights to gain a competitive edge. To enable this, a next-generation hybrid cloud infrastructure must connect data from all sources, including traditional enterprise systems as well as mobile data. This infrastructure must dynamically and economically deal with an explosion in data volume and it must deliver the computing power necessary to perform the analytics flexibly and with high performance.

Keynote Presentation by Vmware - Mind Shift: Learning to Thrive Amid Disruption and Digitization
K-06
VMware
New technologies like mobile devices and the cloud have given businesses the ability to rapidly adopt new business models. With rapid changes in business come rapid changes in the roles of people and technologies. A user’s identity, role and their workplace (location/device) will define their workspace that can consist of both traditional apps or new emerging cloud or mobile apps. Offering multiple services to meet the needs of unique users is a good thing, but delivering different experiences across those services is no longer acceptable. The experience needs to be seamless across scenarios, user groups and devices. This session will discuss the mindset shift that leaders must make in order to thrive within this digital disruption and share best practices that they can implement to ensure a seamless experience within their own businesses.
