The annual WatersUSA conference was held in New York, on December 8 at the heart of NY at Marriott Times Square. This time two pals were fortunate to attend it together – Gregory and Arseniy. This became true with a help of the nicest guys from Amsterdam – founders of Pritle – firm we’re closely working with to build technology for – guys, really appreciate this.
This time the conference was all about clouds. Big guys go cloudifying the business – can you believe that?
Interesting to hear Steve Randich, FINRA CIO claiming “Amazon is more secure than traditional datacenter”.
Have to mention a great panel on costs and contracts focuses for 2015 from Chris Vickery, COO of NOMURA.
Special thanks to Ronan Ryan, Chief Strategy Officer from IEX who not only shared his industry thoughts but also was kind to minimise the amount of f-bombs this time. Mate, you can be yourself wherever you are :).
Good news: thanks to Ronan, Greg read “Flash Boys” by Michael Lewis.
