CeBIT Australia, the largest and longest running business technology event in the Asia-Pacific region will showcase 25 interactive free presentations in Sydney next month.

The presentations, focusing on educations and innovation, will be featured in the new Showfloor Theatre.

Showfloor Theatre sessions include:

Voice and video are dead – Why collaboration is the next big thing: Warren Barkley, CTO, SMART Technologies

Wholesale cloud – Evolving cloud via tech innovation: Sheng Yeo, CEO, OrionVM

Mobility in the workforce – 5 ways mobility can increase your business effectiveness: Peter Poulin, CEO, Xplore Technologies

Developing & managing wireless M2M services in Australia: James Mack, General Manager, M2M One

Making reasonable choices: Defending against modern cybersecurity threats: Shawn Thompson, Chief Technology Officer, Triskele Labs

DevOps lifecycle – Collaborate, integrate, deliver applications across country boundaries @ cloud speed: Steven Atkin, Globalisation Architect, IBM

Digital disruption and technology – Opportunity or threat to Australia’s SMEs: Mark Chapman, Chief Executive, Bentleys Australia

INSIDER THREAT: The biggest cyber security problem! Geoffrey Brown, Seccom Global

INNOVATE OR DIE: John Singh, Director IT, Macquarie IT.

“For the first time in CeBIT’s history we will have three Showfloor Theatres bringing the industry’s leading minds to the exhibition floor, providing attendees tangible strategies to combat some of the industry’s biggest pain points,” said Mr Harvey Stockbridge, Managing Director at Hannover Fairs Australia.

With 36% of security breaches caused by employees inadvertently misusing data, and 70% of fraud involving business insiders (50% by VPs and senior management) attendees can find out how to combat insiders as the biggest cyber security problem.

In a world where 80% of customers are mobile, attendees can learn how to ensure their business is capturing their audience and how to control the digital discussion whilst protecting a company’s intellectual property.

“As the largest business technology conference in the Asia Pacific, there is no better place for Australia’s leading ICT professionals to access the world’s leading minds and the latest innovations in one place,” Mr Stockbridge said.

Also, CeBIT Australia’s exhibition floor will feature 300 exhibitors showcasing the latest products and innovations including:

IBM who will showcase how easy it is to build, manage and deliver apps with speed, driving innovation with APIs and services with IBM Bluemix™, the next generation cloud platform based on IBM's Open Cloud Architecture and Cloud Foundry.

Tapit, a global IoT software company, which pioneered the adoption of Near Field Communications (NFC) marketing for global brands, will be launching the first programmatic beacons platform, Airmarket. The platform will help advertisers leverage the power of beacon technology to hyper-target consumers who are near beacons in a way that is cost efficient, programmatic and scalable.

Christie Digital will showcase the latest in AV technology including their 55-inch and 98-inch UHD flat panels, Brio Team+ collaboration system, new Christie HS Series laser phosphor projector and Christie Captiva ultra short throw projector.

Smart Technologies will showcase the abilities of the SMART kapp iQ, a whiteboard that allows writing back-and-forth between the display and any mobile device, making group work and teacher-led instruction more dynamic.

The exclusive and authorised distributor for Zeutschel products for Australia and New Zealand, Inotec, will be showcasing a new 3D scanner straight from Germany. The 3D scanner can digitise books, magazines and historical documents, then reproduce them in digital 3D form for viewers to interact with.

More than 15,000 visitors are expected to attended CeBIT Australia at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park from May  2-4.
