IT Trends and Outlook
Thursday May 1st, 2003
Hamerschlag Hall D-210
Dr. Dalibor Vrsalovic
Large enterprises are becoming increasingly dependent upon their information
technology systems both for internal efficiency and external agility.
Business requirements demand these systems link together, which has dramatically
increased complexity and personnel requirements. At the same time, IT
budgets are growing very slowly, if at all.
Please join Dr. Dalibor Vrsalovic, Vice President of Enterprise Platforms
Group, President of Intel Online Services, Intel Corporation, as he discusses
these issues and what can be done about them. Based upon his real-world
experience, Dr. Vrsalovic will give a business outlook on worldwide IT
and hosting trends, discuss emerging technologies and describe application
He will also introduce a new view of unified system computing that incorporates
system-of-systems abstraction, standardization, and automation for increased
productivity and error-free execution. By addressing enterprise IT problems
at the service level instead of component-by-component, new solutions
will operate much more efficiently than today’s implementations.
His revolutionary vision will have a dramatic affect on Total Cost of
Ownership (TCO) for IT systems and the allocation of budgets.
