Now in its fourth year, Structure 2011 is the pivotal, must-attend conference for the top executives, investors, entrepreneurs, and technology directors leading the cloud computing and Internet infrastructure industries.
At Structure 2011, speakers and delegates will engage in a two-way debate about how cloud computing will impact the ways we work, communicate, and improve business outcomes in the years to come. The conference will include panel discussions, roundtables, and fireside chats that address how wider adoption of platforms as a service, infrastructure as a service, managed services, hybrid clouds, and more will affect everything from application development to data center design. Attendees will also hear real-world case studies of organizations that have successfully implemented cloud technologies to reduce costs, improve efficiencies, and boost performance.
