It isn't surprising, given the prognosis that the number of enterprises moving to Cloud will double within the next two years, that there's going to be a strong focus on Cloud computing at the IBM InterConnect 2012 conference in Singapore Oct 9 - 11. While some companies are approaching Cloud from a cost and complexity reduction perspective, others are viewing it as a fundamental shift from IT being a cost center to a center of business innovation.
At Interconnect, the Hot Topic “Rethink IT and Reinvent business with cloud computing” will be exploring the cloud computing phenomenon from across this spectrum of perspectives.
The centerpiece for Cloud @ Interconnect will be the Cloud Mini Main Tent, hosted by IBM General Managers Danny Sabbah and Tom Rosamilia. Danny and Tom will outline IBM’s SmartCloud strategy and its alignment with our clients’ business imperatives for cloud adoption. You’ll also have the chance to see SmartCloud in action, with real-world stories from our clients in a panel discussion hosted by Paul Moung, IBM VP of Cloud and Smarter Planet, Growth Markets.
Last but not least, Angel Diaz, IBM’s VP of Cloud Standards will spend some time sharing our leadership in the standards community and discussing the importance of building a smarter approach to cloud standards.
No doubt if you are seriously investigating Cloud solutions, you’ll want to understand how Cloud computing can underpin the effectiveness of other initiatives your organization is exploring, like Mobile, Social, Business Analytics and Big Data.
Through Cloud and other hot Hot Topics at Interconnect, you will have the chance to see how Cloud computing underpins the effectiveness of your most strategic initiatives.
