In spite of the great strides the cloud industry has made in addressing security and integration concerns, large enterprises (e.g., banks, insurance companies, health care firms) continue to be reluctant to adopt the cloud for mission-critical applications. Further, resistance to cloud adoption is now at least as much an issue of misaligned incentives and fear of the unknown as it is about legitimate technology concerns.
Breaking the impasse on mission-critical apps often can't be done directly and instead requires proof to be accumulated over a sustained period of time. The trick is to find a way for a customer to kick the tires of the cloud solution in a way that is financially rewarding for all parties.
In his session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Ben Frenkel, Cloud Evangelist and Cloud CTO at Pegasystems, will describe a proven systematic, repeatable way to make the enterprise comfortable with the cloud for mission-critical applications.
A Rock Star Faculty, Top Keynotes, Sessions, and Top Delegates!
The growth and success of Cloud Computing will be on display at the upcoming Cloud Expo conference and exhibition in New York City, June 11-14, 2012, and in Santa Clara, CA, November 5-8, 2012.
The recent Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, was the largest Cloud Computing conference ever produced with more sponsors, exhibitors and delegates than all other Cloud events of the year combined!
Cloud Expo New York will attract more than 8,000 delegates from 48 countries and over 200 sponsors and exhibitors!
All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented at the 10th International Cloud Expo - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications, and they'll all be here to speak, sponsor, exhibit and network.
"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and chairman of SYS-CON Events, Inc. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates per year will be attending Cloud Expo."
