IBM- It’s getting HOT in here: Turning up the HEAT with IBM MobileFirst for iOS apps
The landmark partnership between IBM and Apple announced last year set the internet abuzz. The partnership aims to spark true mobile-led business change across the 
enterprise. In this talk, we’ll show you how IBM is using OpenStack, Heat, and DevOps to 
deploy a truly monumental undertaking.   
To fulfill this goal, we needed to redefine how we deliver our software. Leveraging IBM’s unique expertise in OpenStack and DevOps, we turned the “art of the possible” into our new “reality”. In this talk, we’ll tell the story of how we used fullstack application patterns based on OpenStack Heat to provision environments with speed and reliability. You will hear directly from the joint development team how these patterns enabled us to collaborate unimpeded by the traditional road blocks of IT development. As it turns out, our goal to “spark true business change” has 
extended beyond our customers to include IBM itself. 
You will not only hear about the technical solution but see it in action with a demo in the session.

IBM- Hot topics with IBM: Federation and Containers
Hot topics for the community are also hot topics for IBM.  In this session, leaders from both the Keystone and Docker community will combine to talk to you about Federation and Containers.   
IBM’s Keystone Leaders will provide an overview of the latest enhancements to Keystone’s 
Federated Identity Support in Liberty. The presenters, who published a brand new O'Reilly book on Keystone, will also provide a summary of their latest federated identity use cases involving Google identity and WebSphere Liberty. We then discuss future work items and the roadmap that IBM will be taking on their Federated Identity journey.   In the second half of the talk you will learn from IBM's efforts to make an open container 
ecosystem successful as well as where Docker and container technology is heading for enterprises and developers alike.  You'll hear about the two new foundations IBM has helped form around container technology--the Open Container Initiative (OCI) and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)--both help bring an open and level playing field as this hot technology area grows.  We'll share our role in these foundations as a key partner of Docker and community contributor in the upstream Docker community.  You'll also hear about how IBM is applying this open source technology across our platform portfolio and with customers.  IBM has taken the open source Docker as a basis for the Bluemix Container Service and added enterprise capabilities around security and multi-tenancy which will be discussed.  See how integration with DevOps tooling can combine to provide a compelling container service, from 
application development through production.
