4th Annual Storage Visions Conference

DuBravac Keynote Featured: New Age of Data Changes Everything


San Jose, CA—The 4th Annual Storage Visions Conference (SV 2015) features a keynote talk by Shawn DuBravac from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). The conference is a partner program to the 2015 International CES.

Shawn DuBravac is chief economist and senior director of Research for CEA. He will give a keynote titled “How the New Age of Data Will Change the Way We Live, Work, and Communicate.”

As DuBravac notes, most people perceive the digital age as simply the accumulation of sleeker and more powerful gadgets. But our understanding of the digital age is narrow, because we are still in its infancy. The explosion of digitized data, which grows by orders of magnitude every year, has unleashed forces that will upend our world in the realms of economics, health, travel and culture.

In his keynote, DuBravac will discuss trends in the consumer technology industry. Furthermore, he will “explore how digital data will solve many of mankind’s most ancient problems, create new challenges and transform life as we know it.”

“We are pleased to have Dr. DuBravac back at the 2015 Storage Visions Conference,” said Tom Coughlin, conference organizer. “We look forward to hearing his insights on the impact of technology on consumer life and consequently on the digital storage requirements that support a modern life style.”

DuBravac provides crucial economic analysis to CEA and industry leaders. The analysis regards future economic activity and the relative health of the technology industry. He also contributes research into technology trends that underpin the industry. Furthermore, he was the primary driver of the new smartphone index developed in partnership with NASDAQ. He also spearheaded the CE consumer confidence index, in partnership with CNET.

DuBravac has been widely published on the topics of finance, economics and technology. In addition, his new book will make its debut at the 2015 Storage Visions Conference and the 2015 CES. The book is titled Digital Destiny: How the New Age of Data Will Change the Way We Live, Work, and Communicate.
