How to Become the "Most Popular" @CloudEXPO, DXWorldEXPO and @DevOpsSummit Speaker
With 10 simultaneous tracks, 22 keynotes and general sessions, and 200 breakout classes, @CloudEXPO and DXWorldEXPO are two of the most important technology events of the year. Since its launch over eight years ago, @CloudEXPO and DXWorldEXPO have presented a rock star faculty as well as showcased hundreds of sponsors and exhibitors!
In this blog post, we provide 7 tips on how, as part of our world-class faculty, you can deliver one of the most popular sessions at our events. But before reading these essential tips, please take a moment and watch this brief video from Sandy Carter.
"Cloud Expo was really the event to connect with thought leaders, innovators, business folks who are interested in what the cloud can bring to their business. You know really how it allows them to bring the transformation of the business process."
1) Submit your session proposal well in advance
The "call for papers" for our next conference is already open. Our conference editorial board evaluates and accepts speaking proposals daily from experienced and well-respected speakers who are experts in their areas of presentation. Accepted session abstracts are published as part of the daily conference news and shared with the industry.
2) Select your session title and content carefully
It's not always sufficient to be highly knowledgeable and well known in your area of expertise. Your topic and session content are very important if you want to speak to a full room with standing room only as the attendees are eager to hear what you have to say. At our past events we have seen celebrity speakers talking to empty rooms, while a first-time presenter attracts crowds in the next hall. Think about what conference delegates want to learn in new and cutting-edge technologies and topics while working on your session abstract and talk.
3) Take your time and update your slide deck
It's easy to fly around from one conference to another with a stale slide deck. Delegates know what they want to learn and they pay attention to these details. Take your time and improve the content of your presentation if you are one of these speakers. Don't forget, in your time slot you are competing with nine other speakers and their presentations.
4) Avoid product pitches
We do not accept product pitches as our conference talks. Our delegates are there to learn about skills, techniques and technologies. They generally skip any session that looks like a product pitch. Keep your slide deck for your company's user conference.
5) Create a SYS-CON author blog and publish expert content
This is a big secret of success for our 10,000 plus SYS-CON authors. If you are not already a SYS-CON author, create your author page today; it only takes a few minutes. If you already have a blog page, you can easily publish your blog feed at our conference blog pages. For help, please contact us at events (at) sys-con.com.
6) Provide us with your session slides after your presentation
After the conference, we publish stories that summarize your presentation and share it with our readers and conference delegates. These stories typically get thousands of reads, expanding and magnifying your reach around the world.

7) Share your session content on Twitter before and after the conference
Your audience and our delegates are the most active Twitter users in any industry. Tweet about your session often; we share your tweets with over 100,000 of our followers to get your word out.
Last but not least, don't be a "no show" at your scheduled presentation. At every event, one or two speakers will miss their presentation without advance notice. These speakers or others from their companies are not invited to future events as we wish to avoid this situation occurring again.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.

ServerlessSUMMIT & Kubernetes at CloudEXPO Silicon Valley
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
Serverless and Kubernetes are great examples of continuous, rapid pace of change in enterprise IT. They also raise a number of critical issues and questions about employee training, development processes, and operational metrics.
DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO Celebrates Its 12th Event in Six Years
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector.
The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
ServerlessSUMMIT and DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
There's a real need for serious conversations about Serverless and Kubernetes among the people who are doing this work and managing it.

Cloud computing is transforming the way businesses think about and leverage technology. As a result, the general understanding of cloud computing has come a long way in a short time. However, there are still many misconceptions about what cloud computing is and what it can do for businesses that adopt this game-changing computing model. In this exclusive Q&A with Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan, Rex Wang, Vice President of Product Marketing at Oracle, discusses and dispels some of the common myths about cloud computing that still exist today.

What do you get when you combine Big Data technologies….like Pig and Hive? A flying pig? No, you get a “Logical Data Warehouse.” In 2012, Infochimps (now CSC) leveraged its early use of stream processing, NoSQLs, and Hadoop to create a design pattern which combined real-time, ad-hoc, and batch analytics. This concept of combining the best-in-breed Big Data technologies will continue to advance across the industry until the entire legacy (and proprietary) data infrastructure stack will be replaced with a new (and open) one.
While unprecedented technological advances have been made in healthcare in areas such as genomics, digital imaging and Health Information Systems, access to this information has been not been easy for both the healthcare provider and the patient themselves. Regulatory compliance and controls, information lock-in in proprietary Electronic Health Record systems and security concerns have made it difficult to share data across health care providers.

It's a simple fact that the better sales reps understand their prospects' intentions, preferences and pain points during calls, the more business they'll close. Each day, as your prospects interact with websites and social media platforms, their behavioral data profile is expanding. It's now possible to gain unprecedented insight into prospects' content preferences, product needs and budget. We hear a lot about how valuable Big Data is to sales and marketing teams. But data itself is only valuable when it's part of a bigger story, made visible in the right context.

Everyone talks about a cloud-first or mobile-first strategy. It's the trend du jour, and for good reason as these innovative technologies have revolutionized an industry and made savvy companies a lot of money. But consider for a minute what's emerging with the Age of Context and the Internet of Things. Devices, interfaces, everyday objects are becoming endowed with computing smarts. This is creating an unprecedented focus on the Application Programming Interface (API) as developers seek to connect these devices and interfaces to create new supporting services and hybrids. I call this trend the move toward an API-first business model and strategy.
We live in a world that requires us to compete on our differential use of time and information, yet only a fraction of information workers today have access to the analytical capabilities they need to make better decisions. Now, with the advent of a new generation of embedded business intelligence (BI) platforms, cloud developers are disrupting the world of analytics. They are using these new BI platforms to inject more intelligence into the applications business people use every day. As a result, data-driven decision-making is finally on track to become the rule, not the exception.
