Krzanich and other executives announced new hardware and software developer tools, previewed upcoming Intel technologies and announced new products across several technology segments.
“With our diverse product portfolio and developer tools that span key growth segments, operating systems and form factors, Intel offers hardware and software developers new ways to grow as well as design flexibility,” said Brian Krzanich, Intel CEO. “If it’s smart and connected, it is best with Intel.”
During the keynote, Krzanich was joined on the keynote stage by several Intel executives, Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell*, and Greg McKelvey, executive vice president and chief strategy and marketing officer of the Fossil Group*.
The technical conference’s format and content were revamped this year to appeal to an expanded range of engineers and programmers, reflecting Intel’s efforts to extend the reach of Intel technology. The agenda and technology showcase content expanded beyond PCs, mobile and the data center to also include the Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables and other new devices created by so-called “makers” and inventors. More than 4,500 people are attending the forum this week from around the world.
