Open Networking User Group (ONUG)
The Open Networking User Group (ONUG) was created in early 2012 as the result of a discussion between Nick Lippis, of the Lippis Report, and Ernest Lefner, about the need for a smaller, more user-focused open networking conference. From there, the two brought together the founding board of IT leaders from the likes of Bank of America, Fidelity Investments, JPMorgan Chase, UBS, and Gap Inc. Managed by Nick, the board worked together to create the first ONUG event, held on February 13, 2013 at the Fidelity Auditorium in Boston, Massachusetts.
Today the ONUG Board has grown to include Bank of America, BNY Mellon, Cigna, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, FedEx, Fidelity, Gap, Inc., GE, Intuit, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Pfizer, UBS, Yahoo, and The Lippis Report. ONUG prides itself on being one of the only strictly user-based meetings. No press or vendors are invited to speak at or attend the morning conference sessions; therefore, speakers and attendance for the morning keynotes and panels are made up exclusively of IT executives and financial and industry analysts. Attendance for select afternoon sessions is open to all.
The outstanding line-up of speakers at our events advocates the transition to open cloud infrastructure. At an ONUG event you can expect to hear keynotes from IT business leaders about their open networking and storage deployment experiences. They will share their motivations, results, and concerns so that other IT executives can make informed SDN deployment decisions within their own companies.
