SYNOPSIS

 
 

Social Innovation is an effort of creativity, which involves interaction across a wide range of disciplines. Social scientists characterize Social Innovation as having three key elements. First it is usually a new combination or hybrid of existing elements, second it involves cutting across organizational and disciplinary boundaries which results in the third element which is compelling new relationships between previously separate groups.

Hubert Yoshida will talk about Social Innovation and how it will involve the interaction of big data across business, human, and machine generated data. Come and hear from the highly-acclaimed Global Chief Technology Officer which trends and directions in 2013 will play a key role in creating sustainable infrastructures for Big Data that can cut across data and information boundaries to drive Social Innovation.

BIOGRAPHY

Hubert Yoshida, as Vice President and CTO, is responsible for defining the technical direction for Hitachi Data Systems and currently leads the company's effort to help customers address their Data Life Cycle requirements to address compliance, governance and operational risk issues. He was instrumental in evangelizing Hitachi's unique approach to storage virtualization which leverages existing storage services within the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform and extends it to externally attached, heterogeneous storage systems.

Yoshida is well known within the storage industry, and his blog was recently ranked among the "top 10 most influential" within the storage industry by Network World. In 2006, he was named "CTO of the Year" by Jon Toigo, and in October of 2006, Byte and Switch named him one of "Storage Networking's Heaviest Hitters".

Prior to joining Hitachi Data Systems in 1997, Yoshida spent 25 years with IBM's storage division, where he held management roles in hardware performance, software development and product management. Since joining Hitachi Data Systems, he has worked to develop open standards for storage management, and in his previous role as vice president of Data Networks, he helped to define Hitachi Data Systems' strategy for Storage Area Networks, Network Attached Storage and other network-related storage and data technologies. Yoshida is now the chairman of DSI.

Yoshida is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in Mathematics. He was a Marine Corps Platoon Commander during the Vietnam War and was discharged with the rank of Captain. Yoshida has authored several papers on Storage Area Networks, Fibre Channel, multi-protocol SANs and storage virtualization technologies. He has also served on the advisory boards of several technology companies and currently sits on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Data Storage Institute of the Government of Singapore.
