The five great reasons to attend TechCrunchs Enterprise show Sept. 5 in SF

The vast enterprise tech category is Silicon Valleys richest, and today its poised to change faster than ever before. Thats probably the biggest reason to come to TechCrunchs first-ever show focused entirely on enterprise. But here are five more reasons to commit to joining TechCrunchs editors on September 5 at San Franciscos Yerba Buena Center for an outstanding day (agenda here) addressing the tech tsunami sweeping through enterprise.
#1 Artificial Intelligence.

At once the most consequential and most hyped technology, no one doubts that AI will change business software and increase productivity like few if any, technologies before it. To peek ahead into that future, TechCrunch will interview Andrew Ng, arguably the worlds most experienced AI practitioner at huge companies (Baidu, Google) as well as at startups. AI will be a theme across every session, but well address again it head-on in a panel with investor Jocelyn Goldfein (Zetta), founder Bindu Reddy (Reality Engines) and executive John Ball (Salesforce / Einstein).
#2. Data, The Cloud and Kubernetes.

If AI is at the dawn of tomorrow, cloud transformation is the high noon of today. 90% of the worlds data was created in the past two years, and no enterprise can keep its data hoard on-prem forever. Azures CTO Mark Russinovitch (CTO) will discuss Microsfts vision for the cloud. Leaders in the open-source Kubernetes revolution, Joe Beda (VMWare) and Aparna Sinha (Google) and others will dig into what Kubernetes means to companies making the move to cloud. And last, there is the question of how to find signal in all the data which will bring three visionary founders to the stage: Benoit Dageville (Snowflake), Ali Ghodsi (Databricks), Murli Thirumale (Portworx).
#3 Everything else on the main stage!

Lets start with a fireside chat with SAP CEO Bill McDermott and Qualtrics Chief Experience Officer Julie Larson-Green. We have top investors talking where they are making their bets, and security experts talking data and privacy. And then there is quantum, the technology revolution waiting on the other side of AI: Jay Gambetta, the principal theoretical scientist behind IBMs quantum computing effort, Jim Clarke, the director of quantum hardware at Intel Labs, and Krysta Svore, style="font-weight: 400;">who leads the Microsofts quantum effort.
All told, there are 21 programming sessions.
#4 Network and get your questions answered.

There will be two Q&A breakout sessions with top enterprise investors for founders (and anyone else) to query investors directly. Plus, TechCrunchs unbeatable CrunchMatch app makes it really easy to set up meetings with the other attendees, an incredible array of folks, plus the 20 early-stage startups exhibiting on the expo floor.
