3PX|TechCon was developed for business and technology leaders including CxOs, CIOs, presidents, and general managers, as well as architects and engineers. It offers attendees the opportunity to learn more about the Third Platform, showcase technology solutions, and their ability to drive change and solve business needs.

The 3PX|TechCon agenda is packed with more than 80 sessions from industry experts including:

  • How In-Memory Computing Can Boost Cloud Performance for Big Data - Eric Frenkiel, MemSQL
    Big data has ushered in new challenges for organizations, and today's decision-makers are faced with a multitude of solutions while lacking clear answers about how to leverage the cloud to effectively tackle big data. In this session, two Facebook and Y-Combinator graduates will discuss how top mobile, gaming and financial services companies are solving problems with in-memory computing.
