Posted on by

Ustream CEO Brad Hunstable will appear on stage at two sessions during IBM InterConnect 2015: The Premier Cloud & Mobile Conference.

Thousands will gather next week at the MGM Grand & Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for the event, which features more than 1,500 technical sessions, 42 tracks, 8 streams, 3 general sessions, hundreds of hands-on labs and certification opportunities, and unlimited peer networking.

On Monday, February 23, Hunstable will take the stage as part of the IBM SmartCamp Global Finals to share his insights on entrepreneurship. The session begins at 4:40 p.m. in Room 312/317 of the MGM Conference Center, Level 3. Sandy Carter, General Manager, Cloud Ecosystem Development, IBM Corporation, will introduce Hunstable and pose a series of questions about his journey as an entrepreneur.

On Tuesday, Hunstable will appear on the influencer panel for “When Big Data Met Cloud.” The session begins at 11 a.m. in the Cloud Theater, inside the Solution EXPO in Mandalay Bay, Shorelines A/B (Level 2). The panel will discuss a series of questions about how organizations are leveraging the cloud for big data, including:

  • Are organizations using cloud and big data to their full potential?
  • What challenges persist in harnessing the power of cloud for big data?
  • How has the relationship between cloud and big data evolved over the last few years, and where is it headed?
  • Would all enterprises benefit from tapping the cloud for big data, and what are the criteria for an organization knowing whether it’s right for them?

All attendees are encouraged to live-tweet from the sessions using the hashtag #IBMInterConnect and to tag @bhunstable.
