BW: Dr. Irving Wladawsky-Berger to Address LinuxWorld Conference & Expo On February 3

“IBM’s Dr. Irving Wladawsky-Berger will deliver his first
Linux-industry keynote presentation at IDG World Expo’s LinuxWorld
Conference & Expo at the Jacob Javits Center, New York City on
Thursday, February 3 at 2:30 PM Eastern Standard Time. His
presentation, “Linux and the Next Generation of e-business,” will
address the confluence of three dynamic forces: the tremendous
advances in technology; the increasing trend of integrating
business processes, people and IT infrastructures; and the surge in
business innovation.”

Wladawsky-Berger was recently appointed to lead IBM’s major
initiative to expand the use and marketing of Linux across its
spectrum of server hardware.
“We are delighted Dr.
Wladawsky-Berger has selected LinuxWorld Conference & Expo to
address the Linux community for the first time,” said Charlie
Greco, president and CEO of IDG World Expo. “We look forward to
welcoming him at our first East Coast event.”

“A major part of Wladawsky-Berger’s responsibilities in his new
role is to lead IBM’s participation in the important and growing
trend toward open standards for interoperability in e-business. In
conjunction with this, he is working to make Linux and the open
source movement a natural extension of IBM’s commitment to
e-business and the next generation of the Internet.”
