By | | 2 min read



Less than a month away from AppDynamics AppSphere™ 2015 and we still have so much more to share! We’re excited to announce an expanded keynote lineup, and our Birds of a Feather roundtable networking event, along with the rest of our jam-packed agenda at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, November 30 to December 4.

In order to give your organization the best competitive advantage in the software-driven world, AppDynamics is bringing the market-driven thought leaders of the application intelligence industry to the main stage for the second year in a row.

Adding to our existing list of all-star keynote speakers from the world’s leading technology influencers, we are very excited to introduce Amazon Web Services’ Global Head of Enterprise Strategy Stephen Orban, as well as Chief Technology Officer Hugh Fahy of THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP, part of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, to the roster, which includes keynote speakers David Kirkpatrick, author, journalist, and CEO of Techonomy Media; and Scott Hanselman, principal program manager lead at Microsoft.

Orban’s session will present a pattern that has emerged organizationally and architecturally in enterprises that are using the cloud to meet their objectives. Session attendees will gain an actionable model for accelerating their organization’s success in the cloud.

Fahy’s session will explain why a shift from hierarchical service management to holistic customer experience management is vital, and will give examples of dashboards, monitors, and metrics required in a customer-centric NOC.

Following our theme of “Advantage,” we’re giving you another channel to gain the best leverage in your market with Birds of a Feather. It’s our inaugural peer-to-peer best practice-sharing networking lunch to spark dialogue, networking, ideas and more with like-minded industry colleagues. We’re focusing on bringing together some of the cutting-edge verticals in the industry today, including FinTech, Digital Entertainment, and SaaS at Scale.

  • The FinTech session will invite leaders from the financial services industry to come together and discuss how emerging technologies are being embraced and deployed across their technology estates, including cloud transformation, mobile innovation, and how blockchain technology is transforming the future of digital banking.
  • The Digital Entertainment session will provide a forum for discussion about the transformation that technology has driven in the entertainment industry over the last decade, as well as the new technologies and capabilities that enable the seamless user interaction this new paradigm requires.
  •  At the SaaS at Scale discussion, attendees will examine how technology leaders have transformed traditional B2B and B2C businesses into SaaS businesses, as well as takeaway points centered on scaling and building highly performing SaaS solutions.

Sign up to attend Birds of a Feather on our AppSphere mobile app, which will be launched prior to the conference.  Spots are limited so we can ensure your best conversations.
