F5 Networks' CEO to Deliver Keynote at Interop Las Vegas

Attendees will learn why and how a static infrastructure must evolve to match the flexibility of virtualized applications, both within the data center and out to the cloud

F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), President and CEO John McAdam will address attendees at Interop 2009 on Wednesday, May 20 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. McAdam's keynote will begin at 8:30 a.m. in Ballroom H on Level 2 of the convention center.

"Today, the network is regarded as the cornerstone of the application delivery infrastructure. CIOs and other IT leaders are critically re-examining their networks in an effort to move beyond static infrastructure," said John McAdam. "In a time where change and consolidation are expected and doing more with less is an imperative, the IT infrastructure must provide intelligence and agility to give organizations a sustainable competitive edge."

In his keynote, McAdam will share insights and examples of:

  • How an agile IT infrastructure affords businesses sustainable advantage by proactively exploiting market dynamics
  • Managing the four dimensions of variance within IT: User Interaction, Security, Applications, and Data.
  • How to drive down the cost of innovation using intelligence to manage the growing complexity of IT
