The Canadian Cloud Council's Robert Brennan Hart Announces "Permanence"
The Canadian Cloud Council is pleased to announce their ninth major enterprise technology conference on March 28, 2019 at the Art Gallery of Alberta in downtown Edmonton.
Permanence will examine the future of Canada's digital economy and challenge Ernest Hemingway's notion that "there are no second acts in American lives."
The conference will feature George Kurian, CEO of NetApp and Shawn Henry, President of CrowdStrike as honorary keynotes. Derek Hudson, CEO of Edmonton Edmonton Economic Development Corporation and Malcolm Bruce, CEO of Edmonton Global will welcome Mr. Kurian and Henry to the stage for what is sure to be a discussion for the ages.
"We are in the early stages of a new economic system that fundamentally thrives on the sharing and open distribution of physical, intellectual and artistic resources. The proliferation of closed and privately held intellectual property no longer provides the greatest value to any conceivable group of stakeholders. Political and economic power is rapidly shifting from century old centralized entities to more agile, adaptable and distributed socio-economic frameworks. And, yet these innovative frameworks are rapidly acquired by the same century old entities and further entrenched in oligarchic incumbencies.
Will the utopia of democratized technologies drive equality, accessibility and opportunity or will it merely be the case of one ruling class replacing another precisely as George Orwell once predicted?" challenged Robert Brennan Hart, Founder and CEO of https://theccc.io/
