Bloomberg Summit to Focus on Future of Enterprise Technology

NEW YORK, May 03, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
In today’s dynamic financial marketplace, enterprise technology fuels
everything from automated trading strategies to accounting and risk
management platforms. As the volume and richness of data feeding the
financial markets grows and new challenges emerge, Bloomberg will gather
leading technology decision-makers, including chief technology officers
and chief information officers from top companies for the Bloomberg
Enterprise Technology Summit on May 10, 2012.

The Summit, which will take place at the Apella at the Alexandria Center
in New York, will convene the biggest procurers of enterprise technology
from across the public and private sectors — with a focus on financial
services companies — to hear experts discuss how corporations and
governments are leveraging the cloud, handling data storage challenges
and securing enterprise operations.

Speakers will also advise on low-latency strategies for equity, option
and ETF trading; discuss solutions for mobilizing enterprise and the
outlook for mobile security; and debate the impact of Dodd-Frank and the
new regulatory environment for technology.

“From trade execution to complex event processing to big data, an
understanding of where enterprise technology is heading is key for
today’s businesses, both in the private and public sector,” said Robert
Bierman, head of Bloomberg LINK. “We’re excited to be hosting our second
Enterprise Technology Summit in New York and to convene some of the most
influential in technology to weigh in on how enterprise technology
practices are evolving in tandem with a number of industries.”
