Commvault , a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today announced that Captain “Sully” Sullenberger and explorer Robert Swan will headline the keynote agenda at its second annual customer conference, Commvault GO 2017, to be held November 6-8, 2017 in Washington D.C.

At Commvault GO 2017 both Sullenberger and Swan will speak about their unique personal experiences accomplishing remarkable things, how data played a key role, and will provide attendees with insight on how they can leverage their own data to unlock new opportunities and strive for competitive advantage.

Sullenberger earned international renown as the captain of the “Miracle on the Hudson,” when on January 15, 2009 he and his crew safely executed an emergency water landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on New York City’s Hudson River. Sullenberger is a safety expert, speaker, and author, and currently serves on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Advisory Committee for Automation in Transportation.

A polar explorer and environmentalist, Swan is the first man ever to walk unsupported to both the North and South Poles. His expedition in the South Pole was the inspiration for 2041, a company he founded dedicated to the preservation of the Antarctic. The mission of 2041 is to inspire, stimulate and connect organizations and communities who seek to protect our world and create a more sustainable, clean energy future.

Commvault GO celebrates the remarkable things global organizations are doing with data. Sullenberger and Swan join industry thought leaders, customers, partners and Commvault executives to explore and discuss market forces and technology innovations that protect and use data to drive digital business transformation, optimize cloud strategies, and deliver on GDPR requirements today.

“I would define both Captain Sullenberger and Robert Swan as remarkable people doing extraordinary things who exemplify the spirit of Commvault,” said Chris Powell, chief marketing officer, Commvault. “While Commvault GO is a must attend event for customers and partners to learn about key trends, technology innovations and best practices in data protection and digital transformation, their presence and keynotes at the show will bring it to the next level. We look forward to hearing them share these experiences at Commvault GO 2017, and providing attendees with actionable knowledge they can draw on to maximize the value of data, helping them build sustainable, competitive advantages in today’s digital economy.”
