CHICAGO, IL — September 6, 2018 — xMatters (www.xmatters.com), the integration-driven collaboration platform that accelerates incident response and resolution, today announced its user conference, Flow 2018, will take place October 22-24 in Chicago, IL. This 3-day conference is the definitive digital collaboration event of the year, focused on educating its audience about the latest innovations, successes, and best practices in enterprise IT collaboration.
“There’s never been a more relevant time to come together and talk about digital collaboration in the enterprise, and we’re excited for customers, partners, and community members alike to engage in these exciting conversations. Whether you’re in an IT or DevOps function, Flow will arm you with the tools and strategies you need to attain new levels of productivity, create meaningful results, and deliver greater value to your business,” said Abbas Haider Ali, Chief Technology Officer at xMatters.
Flow 2018 will deep-dive into three major themes: the organizational and cultural shifts needed to drive successful digital transformation, fostering harmonious teams alongside new technology initiatives, and maximizing agile collaboration by becoming a process-centric organization. These themes and related topics will be covered in over 20 breakout sessions, hands-on training workshops, live product demos, and networking opportunities.
The event aims to put attendees in direct contact with both product and subject matter experts, and disseminate knowledge about innovative implementations that deliver real business value. Keynote speakers include Troy McAlpin, CEO of xMatters; Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk; Jonah Kowall, Vice President of Market Development at AppDynamics; Lee Atchison, Sr. Director of Strategic Architecture at New Relic; and Chris Crocco, Network Solutions Engineer at Viasat.
“The importance of platform thinking is emerging as a key tenant for organizations transforming themselves by increased microservices adoption,” said Kowall of AppDynamics. “This is not only a technology challenge but an organizational and cultural shift. The underpinning platforms must include the capabilities to facilitate communication and workflow driven by consistent telemetry obtained by software instrumentation.”
“The conversations at Flow promise to deepen our collective knowledge and understanding of how the enterprise can conceive of building and expanding a future in a digital world,” said Mann of Splunk. “This is about discovering and harnessing new ways to deliver better business value while keeping IT budgets to a minimum. And we’re not just talking about the latest technologies that are getting built we’re building, but the kind of team culture needed to create in order to support better outcomes.”
