Second Annual AMD CXO Summit Scheduled for February 26, 27 in Sunnyvale, Ca
SUNNYVALE, CA --
AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that it will hold its second annual CXO Summit on February 26 - 27, 2002 at its headquarters in Sunnyvale, California. Possibly the only event of its kind sponsored by a leading semiconductor manufacturer, the AMD CXO Summit provides a unique opportunity for executives of Fortune 1000 companies to exchange ideas and information on the issues and decisions facing those in the field of IT management.
The theme of this year’s summit is “Map the Future,” and will focus on helping enterprise CXOs navigate the turbulent technology landscape to prepare for the future. Christopher Goodhue, vice president and program director with Gartner Group, will deliver the keynote presentation, “Morphing CIO agendas,” followed by partner presentations from companies such as Adexa, AT&T, Compaq and KPMG. Presentations will cover a variety of topics including: the Business Value of IT, Industry Specific Private Exchanges, the Wireless Landscape, Zero Latency Enterprise and Enterprise Value Creation.
“This is yet another example of the value-add AMD provides our customers,” said Kevin Knox, AMD’s director of enterprise segment marketing and business development, North America. “By providing this kind of open forum in which executives can exchange ideas and discuss their industry, AMD gains the firsthand knowledge it needs to become a better partner. Our customers, on the other hand, have a unique opportunity to delve into platform and development issues as they pertain to the work of IT management.”
Customers who attended the summit last year agree that it was notable for the open, interesting exchange of ideas and perspectives.
“Worldwide, there are hundreds of conferences and events on IT management, but none like the AMD CXO Summit,” said Knox. “The feedback we received from attendees last year was that it was a terrific opportunity to look beyond their normal horizon, to the upstream issues surrounding the microprocessor itself, and to learn how those issues are manifested at their level. They felt that AMD truly is responsive to their needs.”
