Our industry is going through quite a wave of innovation and it's being powered by a phenomenon which is referred to as the cloud.
Steve Ballmer - CEO Microsoft
While not a new concept, cloud computing has finally emerged from relative obscurity to become a mainstream concept over the past several years. Widespread adoption is no longer in question, any credible software company necessarily offers its solutions “on demand”, and “X-as-a-service” has expanded from software to platforms and infrastructure. Yet despite these successes, many questions remain. How is cloud poised to continue its evolution? What factors are slowing advancement, and which pose the greatest risks and challenges? Which new technologies and architecture strategies can surmount obstacles, create new capabilities and enable potentially powerful business models? What role do M&A and venture financing play in driving the pace and depth of change across the sector?
How is cloud poised to continue its evolution? James Staten, Vice President, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc. will have insights in Adoption, Investment & Deployment of the Cloud.
What are the challenges and barriers to Cloud Success? How can we solve them? Rob Craft, Senior Director of Cloud Platform at Microsoft explains "Why We Aren't There Yet?"
