Presentation Abstracts

Beginner's Guide to the Latest Technology : Curious about what is the latest in technology ? Are you tired of being the “deer in the headlights” when others talk tech ? As technologists, it is incumbent upon us to be able to speak to what is new. This session will highlight key technologies to give you some basic awareness.

How AI and BI will bring the next generation of business analytics

If you’ve spent any time online in the last few months, you likely saw the buzz around ChatGPT, a new chatbot developed by OpenAI. Suddenly, the capabilities of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) are democratized, their insights and guidance no longer exclusively available for data scientists. While the breadth and depth are unclear, it is certain they will have an impact for years to come. AI/ML will play a pivotal role in providing leaders the information, insight, and recommendations as to how best to optimize and modernize their IT environments.

We will show how to take BI a step further with AI capabilities that not only bring an accurate, trusted and complete picture of your business, but forecast what’s coming in the future, predict outcomes and explain why they may happen.

What if you were able to make things happen. Get a glimpse off what prescriptive AI can do with real life data.

La cybercriminalité : Êtes-vous prêt à repousser une cyberattaque?

La cybersécurité n’est plus considérée comme un problème à résoudre, c’est désormais un risque à gérer. Au cours de la dernière décennie, le paysage de la cybersécurité s’est consolidé en tant que composant principal de l’infrastructure informatique de tout organisme. Alors que les cyberacteurs malveillants d’aujourd’hui recherchent continuellement les vulnérabilités des réseaux à exploiter, il est impératif que les agences renforcent leurs défenses en matière de cybersécurité et mettent en œuvre les meilleures pratiques pour leurs infrastructures informatiques, comme l’adoption d’un cadre de confiance zéro.

Mais lorsque vous êtes victime d’une cyberattaque, quelles sont les prochaines étapes à suivre pour réussir à gérer et à atténuer l’incident?

Tendances dans le développement d’applications : DevOps, microservices et même ChatGpt.

La nouvelle génération de professionnels de l’informatique a désormais dans son ADN des outils Open Source comme Visual Studio Code, des conteneurs, des langages de programmation ou encore Git.

Cette session sera l’occasion pour vous de découvrir les derniers modèles de standards informatiques comme DevOps ou les conteneurs avec le support logiciel OpenSource sur la plateforme IBM Power.

De plus, outre le fort support Linux sur IBM Power, cette session couvrira également quelques joyaux comme l’ensemble des outils OpenSource pris en charge sur AIX et IBM i, comme Ansible, Python, PHP,NodeJS et même ChatGpt.

Néanmoins, comme pour toute nouvelle technologie, il y a généralement des obstacles techniques et culturels à surmonter.
