Con Tech. Live

Con Tech. Live

  • Millennium Hotel London Knightbridge (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A series of conferences that are ‘transforming content through data science, AI and emerging technologies’

At the first ever ConTech conference, held last year in London, delegates were given ground-breaking insights into the biggest technical revolution to hit the content world since the birth of the internet – the intersection of data science and content.

We’re now creating an insane amount of content, which is doubling every single year.  By 2020, the amount of information we have will double every single day.  To some, that’s a problem, to others a massive opportunity.  We have the power to harness that data to the greater good.  The pioneers have already done just that and their success is there for all to see. 

They’ve created bio-electronic devices which could potentially treat arthritis, diabetes and asthma, used medical data to improve the lives of one in ten children in the US, saved the UK government £63 million a year on website costs alone, discovered two new planets, revolutionised the world of teaching and created artworks using nothing more than AI.  The list goes on and on and on….

At ConTech 2018 we heard about all these success stories and the huge benefits they bring.  And we learnt about the things that didn’t go quite so well – the trials and the errors.  Our speakers spoke with passion and our delegates were engaged and eager to hear more. 

The speed at which change is happening in this arena is beyond comprehension and that’s why we’ve created a community here – a community that continues to grow and develop.   This year we build on the success of ConTech 2018 to bring you ConTech.Live – three unique and ground-breaking events.  ConTech 2019ConTech Forum and ConTech Pharma.  Hear from the innovators, the pioneers and the businesses taking a futuristic approach to what they do.

Tech Festival; Transforming Retail Together

Tech Festival; Transforming Retail Together

Tech• is the most important two-day festival of digital commerce and the technology driving it.

3000+ attendees 800+ companies 180+ speakers 100 start-ups

It is the only event where retailers, tech suppliers, FMCGs, start-ups, investors and analysts join forces to work out how they will not only survive the digital revolution, but nail it. At Tech. we put the most disruptive thinkers under the spotlight - from the companies that are revolutionising their industries, to the tech firms creating the most innovative products.

The digital revolution has ushered in the most challenging era in the history of commerce. Technology has destroyed business models that have been the bedrock of the sector for decades. But it has also unlocked new opportunities at an unprecedented pace for those with the agility to seize them. 

New retail ecosystems are being formed, and strategic partnerships and alliances are being announced almost daily, demonstrating the commerce industry’s need to become ever more digitally savvy. Data is the new retail currency, and better understanding your customer, not only on your platform, but across other touchpoints will be the difference between success and failure. 

Tech., the most important two-day festival of digital commerce and the technology driving it, will put this (and more!) under the spotlight by delivering a jam-packed programme crafted with our amazingly talented and super smart group of industry experts

Building Software That Works in Healthcare

Building Software That Works in Healthcare

People say the NHS is terrible at adopting technology - it's not! After three years, one huge pivot and with 1 in 3 GP practices now using us to communicate with their patients, we wanted to share some of the lessons we've learnt about building technology for the NHS that's useful, usable and used.

Come and join us in our new office, to hear some of the lessons we've learnt.

There'll be a few short demos and presentations from different team members on what we've learnt, a look at some of the things we're working on, and lots of pizza and beer.

Some of the topics we'll cover...

  • Why we've built first for desktop installation, not modern browsers

  • How we keep patient data safe

  • How we built the first self-service product in healthcare to integrate with the medical record

  • How we tackled truly Continuous Deployment with 300k desktop installs, on creaking machines, with dodgy internet!

  • Why seemingly simple problems are so hard to solve in healthcare

This event has a technical focus, so is aimed at people who work in software engineering or with an interest in software engineering. We’ve got other events planned for a wider audience which we’ll share on our Twitter page.

Agenda

  • 18.30-19.00: Arriving

Disaster Recovery and Fluid Replication Strategies

SPEAKER

Tabriz Holtz, Sr. Member of Technical Staff, Flasharray

Tabriz Holtz, a senior software engineer at Pure Storage, works on replication technologies that provide business continuity and agility in our continuously connected world. Tabriz grew up in Seattle, WA, where she developed a strong passion for coffee and technology. Throughout her career, she has seen technological highs and lows, from the collapse of the dot-com bubble to the revolution of an industry-changing flash medium. Along this journey, Tabriz has always been drawn to developing highly performant and scalable storage solutions.

ABSTRACT

While every company needs a disaster recovery strategy, picking the best solution is complicated. Everyone wants a high performance, low-cost solution with zero downtime, but choosing a replication strategy entails tradeoffs including risk tolerance, revenue implications and cost. At this talk, Tabriz will explore the maze of considerations companies often face when choosing a disaster recovery strategy and show you what Pure Storage is building to make the decision process less binding and more agile.

Women In Tech Festival UK 2019

Women In Tech Festival UK 2019

It's no secret that the technology industry suffers diversity issues. Walk into any main-stream tech event and you could probably count the number of women on your hand. The same goes for boardrooms, with many companies still struggling to promote women into senior roles, it's no wonder that women are feeling isolated in the IT sector.


With trying to juggle the seemingly endless ‘duties' of work-life, home-life, and just generally needing more hours in the day, it can feel as though the dream of reaching the ‘next step' is one that's simply too difficult to manage.


It isn't.


Computing and CRN have collaborated to launch the Women in Tech Festival UK. We'll be celebrating successful women in the IT industry, sharing personal experiences of their journeys and the challenges along the way.
