Mobile networking and cloud computing are changing the way we work and live. Meanwhile, cloud computing is creating huge challenges in the field of information storage, data integrity and data communications while cloud technology is dramatically changing the way how information security and architecture, and data integrity are being managed. 

Ms Aglaia Kong, Global VP/GM of Cisco and CTO for Cisco China, who is at the forefront of IT industry, will share her great insights on how individuals and businesses can leverage innovation to stay on top of the trends and rise up to the challenges and opportunities ahead in the new era.  

Intended to create business opportunities and embrace the new ear of personal computing by bridging participants, the Chinese University of Hong Kong Center BiG Forum "Proactive Innovation Targeting Key Trends" will be launched in HK and Shenzhen, utilizing our new BiG Video Bridge facilities at both locations on a pilot basis. 

The BiG Forum in Hong Kong will be live broadcasted via Internet to our CUHK Shenzhen Research Institute Lecture Theater on 12 May 2012 (Saturday), allowing participants to see and hear the event in real time. We expect Q&A from Shenzhen to be available also. 


Market is going through rapid transitions, "Internet of Things" creates massive shift in connectivity landscape and explosion of data, cloud technology changes how IT and information are being managed, social networking blurs the lines for work and social life. Should one create a new management paradigm for IT, but what about existing investment? Should one adopt all the latest innovations to enable BYOD (bring your own device) to work, but how to ensure data being kept and maintain securely? To keep up with the changes, how and what to innovate is top of mind for many companies and so is the value of innovation. This discussion will focus on the mechanism to drive innovation, use cases and areas to address for the future.
