TiEcon 2013 Overview – Focus on Big Data, Mobile, SDN & Entrepreneurship

TiEcon 2013, the biggest conference of its kind, with a mission to nurture entrepreneurship, has an impressive lineup of excellent speakers and panels, in the hottest industry segments of Big Data, Mobile, Software Defined Infrastructure, and in Entrepreneurship.

TiEcon 2009

Big Data track will feature speakers that include, Dr. D J Patil, data scientist at Greylock Partners, and Rayid Ghani, , Mr. Obama’s Chief Scientist who converted vast amount of data collected through large commercial databases, boutique lists, voter files, and social media sites, into a source of valuable data that galvanized the election campaign and the rest is history.

Mobile track will hold panels on “mobile ecosystems” to “where they are VCs investing”, in this fast growing market.  The track will feature top notch speakers like Anand Chandrasekhar, Senior VP and CMO at Qualcomm.

With data centers of the future defined by Software Defined Infrastructure, efficiency is bound to get a boost, as resources get divided.  This track will feature speakers like Dr. Guru Parulkar, Executive Director at ONRC and Consulting Professor at Stanford University, with discussions around how OpenFlow might enable networks to evolve by giving power to the remote controller, to modify the behavior of network devices.

Entrepreneurship track has some of the biggest names of inspiring self made entrepreneurs, including famous Ronnie Screwvala, Syntel’s Bharat Desai, Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics, and Manoj Bhargava, CEO of 5-Hour Energy, possibly the wealthiest Indian entrepreneur, in USA.

Open Flow Enabling Innovation in Network Computing – Dr. Guru Parulkar to speak at TiEcon 2013 (Preview)

In the past, computing centered around hardware based silos of network and storage.   With data centers of the future defined by software defined infrastructure, efficiency can be boosted as resources get divided.  In the earlier model, because of the network, you had to build pods or tiers.  Now tasks can be moved around and ability to move applications that need high performance, is increased.

Dr. Guru Parulkar, Executive Director of Open Networking Research Center (ONRC) and Consulting Professor of EE at Stanford University, will talk about how OpenFlow enables networks to evolve by giving a remote controller the power to modify the behavior of network devices.  The growing OpenFlow ecosystem now includes routers, switches, virtual switches, and access points from a range of vendors.   Parulkar has been in the field of networking for close to 20 years.  He joined Stanford University in 2007 and helped create three large projects – OpenFlow and SDN, POMI 2020 (Programmable Open Mobile Internet 2020), and SEDL (Stanford Experimental Data Center Laboratory).  Parulkar is now spending most of his time on OpenFlow and SDN and on ONRC including OnLab.

Will Open Flow and SDN gain momentum quickly and become a new norm of networking?  Come and hear Parulkar talk about how Open Flow and SDN is increasingly deployed in the production network of universities, with an aim to develop comprehensive intellectual framework for SDN.  Register for TiEcon 2013 at .
