How Amazon Web Services’ Mai-Lan Tomsen Bukovec is preparing for a data explosion

One of the only certainties about the future of enterprise computing is that more data will be collected, processed, and analyzed by future businesses than we can fathom today. Mai-Lan Tomsen Bukovec is responsible for making sure today’s cloud computing leader is ready for that future.

That’s just one of the topics we’ll explore June 5th at the GeekWire Cloud Summit, where Tomsen Bukovec will be joining us on stage to talk about how Amazon Web Services is adjusting its storage strategy in light of this coming explosion of data. In a recent interview with GeekWire, she pointed out that just two technology trends — the growing numbers of sensors in industrial internet of things and autonomous cars — alone will generate reams and reams of data for future companies to collect and analyze.

“The explosion of data is going to be beyond what we’ve ever seen before,” Tomsen Bukovec said.

As the leader of Amazon’s S3 storage service, the first and perhaps most vital cloud service ever introduced by AWS, her team is responsible for giving information technology departments the storage tools they’ll need to manage and store this forthcoming deluge of data.

Over the last 13 years that S3 has been live, AWS has seen just about everything that modern companies attempt to do with their data. After all, that’s the point: gathering and storing data as reliably and cheaply as possible is important, but cloud customers really need new and powerful tools to unlock the potential of that data, Tomsen Bukovec said.

We’ll talk about the coming data explosion and a lot more during the 2019 Cloud Summit, now in its third year at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. Tomsen Bukovec is just one of the great speakers that will join us on June 5th, including Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott and a panel discussion with Kubernetes authors Joe Beda, Brendan Burns, and Craig McLuckie looking back on the fifth anniversary of the open-source container-orchestration project.

Tickets are on sale for the GeekWire Cloud Summit here. It is our most technical conference of the year, drawing more than 600 technology leaders to discuss what’s next in cloud computing and learn insights from those who’ve been in the trenches.

There aren’t many cloud computing conferences that are produced outside of the cloud vendors themselves, and the GeekWire Cloud Summit is a great value for engineers, developers, CIOs, CTOs and other business and tech leaders to dive deeper into the most important technologies behind the cloud.
