Nexenta, Kaiser Permanente and Microsoft to Discuss How Big Data and Cloud Computing Innovation is Transforming Healthcare Industry at Bay Area Council’s Outlook Conference

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—May 17, 2016— Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced that Chairman & CEO, Tarkan Maner, will present at the Bay Area Council’s Outlook Conference on May 17 in San Francisco, Calif.

Alongside Manish Vipani, Head of Cloud at Kaiser Permanente, Tarkan will discuss how Software-Defined Storage is enabling industries such as healthcare to be more innovative, ultimately resulting in better patient care. Data is at the heart of modern healthcare and healthcare organizations must now access, manage, and retain data more efficiently than ever. But while exponential data growth put unprecedented stress on IT infrastructure, organizations must still keep their costs low. With Nexenta OpenSDS healthcare organizations can readily scale up to meet these requirements for high-speed, consistent performance and reliable storage – while keeping costs low so budget can be spent on patient care, not IT.

Additional conference speakers include:

  • John Stumpf, Chairman and CEO, Wells Fargo
  • Rudy Giuliani, Chair, Cybersecurity & Crisis Management Practice, Greenberg Traurig; former Mayor, City of New York
  • Sophie Vandebroek, Chief Technology Officer, Xerox; President, Xerox Innovation Group
  • Mitchell Baker, Executive Chair, Mozilla Corporation and Mozilla Foundation
  • Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Founder, CEO and President, The Representation Project
  • Chauncy Lennon, Head of Workforce Initiatives, JPMorgan Chase
  • Laura Powers, CEO, CODE2020
  • Abby Snay, Executive Director, Jewish Vocational Services   

Presented by Wells Fargo, the Outlook Conference convenes the best and brightest business, government, academic and community thinkers and doers. Through a series of dynamic talks and thought-provoking conversations, we will explore the unique challenges and opportunities defining the Bay Area’s future growth and prosperity. Some of the region, state and nation’s chief movers and shakers will examine the Bigger Better Bolder trends and developments happening in business and politics that are influencing the Bay Area’s sustained success as a global economic powerhouse.
