”Grids Gone Bad” – Wednesday, May 23, 2:00-3:00 pm
Presented by Clarence Briggs, CEO and President, Advanced Internet Technologies
The concept of grid computing holds extraordinary promise for the marketplace and service delivery models. As a pioneering provider who’s done and seen it all while battling through the bubbles and busts of technology, Mr. Briggs will share his unique experiences and insight into what it takes to stay on top and what’s ahead for the industry. In particular, he’ll discuss the opportunities and threats surrounding some of the hottest topics in today’s market such as grids, search, security, hosting, applications, value-added services and of course the Internet and web services industry as a whole.
”Jack of all Trades or Master of VoIP? Succeeding with a Solitary Strategy”
Thursday, May 24, 10:00-11:00 am
Presented by Dan Hoffman, President and CEO, M5 Networks, Inc.
For many providers, having 1,000 value-added services to turn a simple server or connection into a profitable service model has become the norm. At what point does it become a burden to manage the complexity of multiple products, prices and services? Is it preferable to offer a single service for a broad, diversified range of target customers at multiple price points? Leading by example, Dan Hoffman points out that his extraordinary success comes from an unusually high degree of focus and clarity of purpose as a company. Although VoIP and Hosted IP-PBXs are a hot market today, they have not always been and may not be tomorrow. In the context of M5 Networks’ incredible success and results, Mr. Hoffman will share his thoughts on his past and future strategy, the idiosyncrasies of the market itself that brought him to this thinking and how your company can realize the benefits of mastering a solitary strategy.
Jon Price, General Manager of Jupitermedia Events remarked, ”We’re extremely fortunate to have two of our industry’s most successful visionaries making keynote presentations at ISPCON Spring. Their creative and strategic views ‘from the top’ will prove to be tremendously valuable to our growing community.”
