I can’t believe it’s already been a year since AppDynamics AppSphere 2015, seems like it was just yesterday. Once again held at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, AppSphere 2015 had over 1,500 attendees from the world’s top enterprises and included speakers from Pearson, The Hut Group, Xerox, Expedia, Red Hat, and several others leading the way in digital transformation.
Along with several insightful sessions, one of the highlights for me was the panel on the future and challenges of the Internet of Things (IoT). Featuring speakers from Tesla, Garmin, SmartThings, Red Hat, and moderated by our own Prathap Dendi, the discussion covered the challenges and pain points for IT organizations as IoT devices become a larger part of our everyday society.
Another key highlight was hearing from Peter Gott, Head of Barclaycard Technology Delivery at Barclays, discuss how they use AppDynamics to monitor their applications through a DevOps release cycle. Tasked with aggressive goals and facing the challenges of mobile banking becoming the leading touchpoint, Gott talks about their latest technological releases to increase the revenue stream for Barclaycard. His story and specific use cases show the power of how moving to digital can transform any industry.
This year is shaping up to be even bigger and better than last year! Some excellent speakers have already been announced with even more just around the corner. We’ve also listened to your feedback and have created all new dedicated hands-on labs to further sharpen your skills.
