Never say, “I didn’t see that coming.”

Time machines are so last century. We offer instead a lineup of clear-eyed visionaries who can peer a little further beyond the horizon than the rest of us mortals, and report back. They’ll lay out the big picture and trends in IT, data centers and storage. They’ll give the latest news from the trenches in the smart storage revolution. And share the many neuron-sparking innovations Pure customers and partners are implementing to drive business transformation, improve outcomes and make the new possible, well, possible.
