St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 24, 2009
Appistry, a pioneer in private cloud computing for the enterprise, today announced that it will host a webinar on Thursday, August 27, 2009 entitled: "The Executive's Guide to Cloud Computing." This free Webinar will explore the enterprise executive's perspective as it has been gleaned by two industry veterans in the cloud computing and SOA spaces, Bob Lozano and Eric Marks, who have worked extensively with Fortune 500 companies and are co-authors of a book by the same title as the August 27 webinar.
The roundtable discussion will address many of the topics covered in their book. In the session, attendees will learn to address issues and concerns specific to the enterprise, such as:
- How the drive for lower costs and greater scalability and agility is making cloud computing a fiscal and technological imperative;
- The relationship between cloud computing, SOA, web services, and other relevant IT initiatives;
- The strategic implications of cloud computing on the enterprise.
The cloud value proposition varies greatly based on the model chosen. Enterprises are realizing the importance of identifying goals and performance requirements as to align the cloud initiative with the models that support those goals. This webinar provides a roadmap that educates the enterprise on the technologies behind cloud computing and, more importantly, how those technologies apply to business.
Lozano, founder and chief strategist at Appistry, and Marks, CEO of AgilePath, whose book is due out this fall through Wiley Publishing, entitled "The Executive's Guide to Cloud Computing," will host the Webinar.
