Overcome Business Challenges At Rackspace::Solve

How can DevOps free up my developers? How can I scale MongoDB? How can I ensure my ecommerce site doesn’t crumble under massive growth?

These questions and many more are at the heart of a series of one-day summits Rackspace is hosting called Rackspace::Solve. These events are designed to bring together technologists, decision makers, startups, hackers, developers and engineers to hear from innovative companies like WePay, Docker, SunPower, ChartBoost, Alex and Ani, CoreOS and New Relic about how they’re solving the toughest challenges in big data, ecommerce, DevOps, cloud architecture and more.

And while Rackspace is the host, these Solve summits are not just a big commercial for Rackspace like so many vendor events  – rather they are interactive showcases of how companies are solving their most pressing business challenges with creative strategies and breakthrough technologies. Our goal is for every attendee to leave a Rackspace::Solve event with new ideas to kick start their businesses and innovate.

Technology choices are critical business decisions that have an incredible impact. They affect time-to-market, speed of delivery, expertise and, most importantly, how you stay ahead of the competition. Technology and services are the keys to overcoming tremendous business challenges.

Rackspace::Solve is about helping you find solutions to these business challenges. Need digital marketing insight? Want help with private cloud? Thinking about leveraging containers? Solve will answer all of your questions, and you’ll hear first-hand from some of the pioneering companies making major strides in these specific areas.

This first solve event is Monday, July 28 at the St. Regis in San Francisco. We’ve put together an exciting agenda where you’ll learn everything from overcoming big data challenges with MongoDB and using the Hybrid Cloud to solve for the internet of things, to innovating though DevOps and solving for hyperscale growth in ecommerce.

Rackspace::Solve is a chance for you to gain valuable insight into the solutions that will truly help your business. Rackspace specialists will be on-hand to answer any questions you may have – and you can network with the speakers and your peers throughout the event.

And if you can’t make it to San Francisco, we have more Rackspace::Solve events slated for New York and Chicago.

Come out and hear how cutting edge companies are solving real-world problems and learn from your peers how you can overcome these challenges. Rackspace::Solve is a summit for everyone – developers and business leaders a like – who want to leverage technology and services to solve business challenges.

We hope to see you there.
