LONDON and LAWRENCE, Kan. — Oct. 8, 2019 — Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise data protection, and Northdoor Ltd., a London-based IT consultancy, will sponsor, exhibit, and make a presentation at the upcoming IBM Think Summit London on Oct. 16 at the Olympia London event center. Scheduled for 12:39 p.m. as part of the Cloud and Infrastructure Think Tank, the presentation is titled "Machine Learning Meets Data Protection — the unstoppable force meets the immovable object?" The companies will be exhibiting in the Cloud and Infrastructure Campus.
Think Summit London is IBM's annual festival of innovation, featuring tech talks, immersive experiences, topical debates, and thought-provoking guest speakers. This year's focus will be on enterprise-ready, multicloud solutions that are transforming businesses from "surviving" to "thriving," and how research and technology — including AI, blockchain, and quantum computing — are being channeled into protecting the future and helping to sustain not just business growth but also people and environments around the world.
In this presentation, Rodney Foreman, chief revenue officer of Cobalt Iron, will discuss how groundbreaking new solutions for hybrid cloud deployments pair analytics with automation to eliminate many of the performance issues normally associated with managing a legacy data protection environment. Foreman will present what the "art of the possible" looks like for companies leveraging the next generation of SaaS data protection using Cobalt Iron's Compass™ and IBM's Spectrum Protect delivered by Northdoor IT.
"Machine learning and data protection are a partnership made in heaven — or at least made in the cloud. Machine learning, analytics, automation, cloud, and SaaS have been aggressively deployed with massive success, delivering productivity, agility, and economic value across key IT disciplines," said Foreman, "While previously overlooked, data protection is now being brought into the fold — and the ability to integrate data protection into auto-provisioning workflows should be standard for any hybrid cloud environment."
AJ Thompson, chief commercial officer for Northdoor commented, "Progressive public sector, SMB, and global enterprises are rapidly deploying SaaS-based models to meet and exceed the new service levels being demanded by cloud-savvy and data-aware business executives. We'd like to invite Think Summit London attendees to join our panel of experts as they shine a light on this opportunity."
