Leading C-Suite Perspectives Upcoming at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley

The "Awesome Autumn of Cloud Computing" Culminates Nov 7-10 in Silicon Valley

What does the CIO of the National Reconnaissance Office have in common with the CEOs of Abiquo, Apprenda, Tier3, OutSystems and OpSource, the Co-Founder & CTO of Dell Boomi, the CTOs of Rackspace, rPath, Compuware, BMC, NextIO, SoftLayer, SOA Software, Gale Technologies, CiRBA and UShareSoft, and the Chief Cloud Executive at VMware?  Answer: all are members of the distinguished Speaker Faculty of Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, due to take place November 7-10, 2011, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - the heart of Silicon Valley.

Cloud Computing is changing the way we work and live. The economic realities that companies faced this year and last led many IT executives in 2010 and 2011 to closely evaluate cloud computing. The cloud is here to stay, and it is expanding fast.

Cloud computing is fast shifting responsibility for application maintenance, operations and disaster recovery development from the business user to the service provider. Companies of every size, from giants to start-ups, have been finding the cloud offers an attractive business proposition and are already leveraging its potential for significant upside in terms of cost and new opportunities.

Five or 10 years from now, most companies and people in the developed world will be connected to the cloud in some fashion, unlocking a tremendous amount of opportunity, productivity, and wealth.

Attending Cloud Expo Silicon Valley (November 7-10) is your chance to move far beyond discussions about how to define cloud computing and focus instead on the real story: the highly productive and potentially profitable changes it is creating in the way we both work and live.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
