Find out How the new Age of Data Will Change the Way we Live, Work and Communicate at the 2015 Storage Visions Conference

 

SV 2015 Awards Submissions close November 15, 2014

 

San Jose, CA—November 12, 2014—The Fourteenth Annual Storage Visions Conference (SV 2015) features a keynote talk by Shawn DuBravac from the CEA. The full conference agenda with speakers identified can be seen at:  http://www.storagevisions.com/2015Agenda.htm.    SV 2015 is a partner program to the 2015 CES.

 

Shawn DuBravac, Chief Economist and Senior Director of Research for the Consumer Electronics Association will give a keynote talk on:  How the new age of data will change the way we live, work, and communicate.  Following is the abstract for this talk.

 

Most people perceive the digital age as simply the accumulation of sleeker and more powerful gadgets. But our understanding of the digital age is narrow, because we are still in its infancy. The explosion of digitized data, which grows by orders of magnitude every year, has unleashed forces that will upend our world in the realms of economics, health, travel and culture. In his keynote address, DuBravac will discuss trends in the consumer technology industry and explore how digital data will solve many of mankind’s most ancient problems, create new challenges and transform life as we know it.

 

Dr. Shawn DuBravac is the chief economist and senior director of research for the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®). DuBravac provides crucial economic analysis to association and industry leaders regarding future economic activity and the relative health of the technology industry. He also contributes research into technology trends that underpin the industry and was the primary driver of the industry’s new smartphone index, developed in partnership with NASDAQ, and the CE consumer confidence index, in partnership with CNET.  DuBravac has been widely published on the topics of finance, economics and technology.   His new book, Digital Destiny:  How the New Age of Data Will Change the Way We Live, Work, and Communicate makes its debut at the 2015 Storage Visions Conference and the 2015 CES

Tom Coughlin, organizer of the 2015 Storage Visions Conference said, “We are pleased to have Dr. Dubravac back at the 2015 Storage Visions Conference.  We look forward to hearing his insights on the impact of technology on consumer life and consequently on the digital storage requirements that support a modern life-style.”
