2014 Global Product Data Interoperability Summit Welcomes New Partner and Expands Technology Tracks

The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA], Northrop Grumman Corporation [NYSE: NOC], Parker Aerospace, and Elysium Inc. will hold the sixth annual joint Global Product Data Interoperability Summit (GPDIS), on September 8-11, at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort in Phoenix, AZ. The theme of this year’s Summit is “Preserving Product Data Quality through the Value Stream.”

The Summit, which functions as a communications hub for industry principals to foster knowledge through the exchange of ideas, solutions, and methods, is introducing a new sponsoring partner and two additional technology tracks this year. Presentation abstracts are due by June 2.

Parker Aerospace, an operating group of Parker-Hannifin Corporation [NYSE: PH] and global leader in the research, design, manufacture and service of flight control, hydraulic, fuel, inerting, fluid conveyance, thermal management and engine systems and components, has joined the GPDIS committee as a sponsor.

“Parker Aerospace’s participation will add valuable industry expertise and perspective to GPDIS,” says Ken Tashiro, vice president of Elysium and GPDIS organizer. “Going into the Summit’s sixth year, it remains critical to align industry standards in order to combat the data interoperability challenges that confront OEMs and suppliers everywhere.”

“I find this setting to be unique and ideal to generate both near-term tactical and long-range strategic solutions to common industry issues through the one-stop shop community of partners, suppliers and technology leaders,” says Nate Nalven, director of Engineering Applications at Northrop Grumman. “GPDIS member organizations have developed strategic directions and affordable solutions that not only benefit themselves, but also provide foundations and relationships for the greater good of industry overall.”

While Data Exchange, PLM, SOA, and M&QS have been the focus of previous Summits, new University and Systems Engineering tracks are being introduced for 2014. The University track will showcase innovative student work in the area of data interoperability. The Systems Engineering track will explore how common data standards can improve the design and management of complex engineering projects over their lifecycles.

“We are reminded that technology continues to march on and competition is ever present,” says GPDIS Chairman Terrence McGowan of Boeing. “Planning for common enterprise architecture is essential for OEMs to continue to stay competitive and build value. Finding the solutions in a fast-paced technology world can mean the difference between being prepared for opportunities as they arise, and struggling to keep up with ongoing customer needs.”

Visit the 2014 GPDIS website (http://www.gpdisonline.com) for information regarding registration, hotel accommodations, presenters and sponsors. Registration is now open through August 15. Presentation abstracts are now being accepted and must be submitted to [email protected] by June 2.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
