Time to Mission @ the Speed of Cloud

Details of Jill Tummler Singer's upcoming session at 12th Cloud Expo / Cloud Expo New York [June 10-13, 2013]

Organizations want extraordinary results from their IT units. Today's mantra is faster delivery, better quality, cheaper solutions, and safer environments. Many CIOs are implementing cloud computing enterprise architectures to address these challenges with results varying greatly. Why are some organizations seeing only limited results from cloud computing implementations while others are increasing market share, decreasing costs, generating value, and innovating faster?

In her session at 12th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo New York, Federal CIO Emeritus Jill Tummler Singer will explore fundamental shifts organizations need to consider to get the most value from cloud computing and deliver "time to mission @ the speed of cloud."
