Dr. Dalibor Vrsalovic
Intel Corporation

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 growth areas.

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.

Dalibor F. Vrsalovic is Vice President of the Enterprise Platforms Group and Director, Advanced Systems Development Group. Dr. Vrsalovic was also named President of Intel Online Services, Inc. in 2001.
