NaviSite will also look at Cloud Computing from the angle of pitfalls to avoid, specifically seven of them, according to Vishal Sharma, Sr. Director of Business Development. "Faced with high in-house deployment, management, and support costs for its mission-critical enterprise applications, enterprises are turning to the cloud for its economic efficiencies and speed of deployment," according to Sharma's session abstract. "But moving to the cloud requires some up-front planning and careful consideration of the various cloud offerings."
