With quotes from some participating companies for this coming edition:​

  • Jason Lohrey, CEO and Founder, Arcitecta
    "Data is the new gold and at the crux of everything we do at Arcitecta. We look forward to the upcoming IT Press Tour, which is an excellent venue to share more about our technology and solutions with leading European and U.S. influencers and industry experts. Arcitecta continues to break new ground in data management with the Mediaflux platform, providing a holistic view of data irrespective of its storage system or geographical location. By merging world-class data management, orchestration, multi-protocol access, and storage into one cohesive platform, we are setting a new industry standard that moves beyond data storage to make data more accessible, manageable, and valuable than ever before."

  • Ali Siddiqui, Chief Product Officer, BMC Software
    “AI is transforming the business world, and BMC believes AI and automation are the key to future innovation, particularly when it comes to data. That’s why BMC has been investing heavily over the past few years in Generative AI, DevOps, and AIOps, along with innovations in public cloud and DataOps. We look forward to engaging with expert reporters in the IT Press Tour and sharing more details about how BMC is harnessing the power of AI to empower our customers.”

  • Natasha Beckley, Chief Marketing Officer, Quantum
    "2023 was an exciting and transformative year for Quantum, and we’re looking forward to kicking off 2024 with the IT Press Tour, a renowned group of international journalists with years of experience and expertise covering technology. On our last IT Press Tour, we were able to preview Quantum’s newest innovation, Myriad all-flash, cloud-native solution ideal for AI-enabled workflows, where we benefited from valuable dialogue and input. We look forward to sharing more on our end-to-end solutions for data across the lifecycle. AI requires data to learn, and our vision is to help customers extract the most value from their unique data."

  • Kiran Bhageshpur, Chief Technology Officer, Qumulo
    "In 2023, we introduced and launched Azure Native Qumulo, the industry's first cloud native enterprise class file service that incorporates the elasticity of the cloud for both performance and capacity. It is always fun and exciting to discuss our year just past and what we have planned for the year ahead with this very knowledgeable group of observers of IT trends and how it impacts industry and society. We have seen AI workloads in Azure drive interest in ANQ and look forward to sharing how we see the AI trends playing out in the short term."

  • Jeff Giannetti, Chief Revenue Officer, WEKA
    “Around the world, enterprise AI projects are being slowed and stalled by legacy data infrastructures that cannot adequately support modern GPU-accelerated computing and performance-intensive workloads. WEKA is committed to creating novel solutions at the intersection of cloud and AI that help customers seamlessly scale AI projects and overcome complex data challenges. We look forward to meeting with the IT Press Tour in Campbell next month to discuss the newest advancements to WEKA’s AI-native data platform and how our customers are using it to advance the AI revolution.”
