Fujifilm is pleased to welcome our valued customers from around the world to attend our 9th Annual Global IT Executive Summit. The Summit is a three-day educational conference featuring presentations from industry experts, analysts, vendors and end users about the latest trends and best practices in data storage.

Highlights from Last Year

This year the Summit takes place in Seattle, the home of cloud computing and cloud storage and now a hot spot for IT technology. Attendees from any industry will be able to gain valuable insights from our distinguished speakers and better understand how to optimize the storage infrastructure and how diverse technologies including the cloud fit together to meet the ever increasing challenge of exponential data growth!


This year you will hear:

  • How key vendors in storage continue to innovate in today’s dynamic marketplace including  IBM, Oracle, Spectra Logic, HPE and Western Digital.
  • What leading industry analysts like Jon Toigo, Fred Moore, and Greg Schulz have to say on the trends in storage including flash, disk, tape, object storage, private/public/hybrid cloud storage, active archive, long-term data protection, software defined storage and more!
  • What industry experts think about key issues confronting every data center including increasing energy consumption and escalating cyber security threats.
  • How end users such as Microsoft Azure, Oak Ridge National Labs, CERN and The American College are executing innovative data protection strategies that are high performance, resilient, scalable and efficient, as well as cost-effective.
