Greetings from the Acela train, where very shortly I will join cloud fans by the hundreds from all walks of the technology space, from delegates, to vendors and consumers who are gathering at NYC’s Javits Center to experience and discuss the entire world of the cloud, at the 18th International Cloud Computing Expo!
Follow me @CloudTechReview as I LIVE TWEET from the Cloud Expo!
Keynote speakers on deck for today’s Enterprise Cloud Adoption tracks include, Andrew Keys (@consensysandrew), Phil Jackson (@underscorephil), Alex Lovell-Troy (@Alexlovelltroy), Seth Oxenhorn, Esmerelda Swartz, Dan Florea (Dflorea), Steve Anderson and Rick Lefort (@ricklefotratBMC), and Oleksii Ostroverkhyi.
Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. The opportunity for professionals to meet and collaborate, to support and augment how their business can leverage cloud capabilities is imperative. The Cloud Expo organizers, SYS-CON Events, drive home the significance of the event with some eye-opening statistics:
“The age old debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS–software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.”
Today’s Cloud Expo brings Cloud Computing, IoT, Big Data, DevOps and more together in this single location.
