TribalScale Announces TakeOver Dubai and a Keynote Speaker

DUBAI, UAE, November 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —

TakeOver Innovation Conference, Canada’s largest one-day innovation and technology conference, presented by TribalScale, today announces its first ever event to be held in Dubai along with an impressive line-up of speakers.

TakeOver Dubai will take place on November 14, 2018, at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. The conference connects TribalScale’s North American network with the Middle Eastern and North African innovation sector. Already, and much like the conference held in Toronto, TakeOver Dubai is attracting C-Suite and executive-level business leaders from the financial services, media, and telecommunications industries.

“There is so much growth and opportunity in the UAE. We believe that it’s time we connect our networks and push for international collaboration and innovation,” said Sheetal Jaitly, TribalScale’s CEO and Co-Founder. “TakeOver is just one of the ways we give back. Dubai and the UAE have given TribalScale so much, it’s time for us to return the favour.”

In front of a highly curated audience, TakeOver speakers will bring forward-thinking and strategic perspectives on enterprise transformation, artificial intelligence, and global startup incubation. Speakers include:

  • Keynote Speaker, H.E. Marcy Grossman: Consul General of Canada in Dubai and the Northern Emirates
  • Session Speaker, Karthik Ramakrishnan: Global Head of Industry Solutions at Element of AI
  • Panelist, Peri Ozdemir: Head of Innovation and Special Projects at Emirates NBD
  • Panelist, Anshul Srivastav: CIO and Digital Officer at Union Insurance
  • Panelist, Mark Chahwan: CEO and Co-Founder at Sarwa
  • Panelist, Karin Gabriel: Head of Programming at Dubai Future Accelerators
  • Panelist, Neelay Patel: Director of TV, Radio and Music at the BBC

TakeOver Dubai will also prominently feature TribalScale Venture Studios. Venture Studios leverages TribalScale’s operations and network across the globe to source, invest in and scale startups in conjunction with corporate partners. The Venture Studios team is partnering with MENA enterprises to bring innovation and startups from the most important venture markets in the world, including Silicon Valley, New York City, and Toronto.

The Knowledge Society (TKS), Canada’s top innovation incubator for young leaders, will also be at TakeOver Dubai hosting interactive sessions on AR/VR, quantum computing, and machine learning. TakeOver partners include Arabnet, Careem, Digital Gurus, FinTech Galaxy, the Government of Canada, Element AI, Enterprise Ireland, Support Legal, and The Knowledge Society.

TribalScale’s operations in the region are growing rapidly. The team in Dubai, currently 20, earlier this year, announced Fraser Matthews as the Middle East North and Africa (MENA) Regional Director, and TakeOver Dubai is a further reflection of the company’s growing presence in the area.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste…

It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we’ve lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOp…

In very short order, the term “Blockchain” has lost an incredible amount of meaning. With too many jumping on the bandwagon, the market is inundated with projects and use cases that miss the real potential of the technology. We have to begin removing Blockchain from the conversation and ground ourselves in the motivating principles of the technology itself; whether it is consumer privacy, data ownership, trust or even participation in the global economy, the world is faced with serious problems …

92% of enterprises are using the public cloud today. As a result, simply being in the cloud is no longer enough to remain competitive. The benefit of reduced costs has normalized while the market forces are demanding more innovation at faster release cycles. Enter Cloud Native! Cloud Native enables a microservices driven architecture. The shift from monolithic to microservices yields a lot of benefits – but if not done right – can quickly outweigh the benefits. The effort required in monitoring,…

Of course, there’s Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded.
