Why Cloud Day

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?


State of the Cloud

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.
