Flagship event examines the role of information technology departments as cloud services mature.

At Structure, we’ll learn what the future of cloud computing holds from the people getting their hands dirty with deployments.

The most influential technologists in cloud computing will take the stage at GigaOM’s 6th annual Structure conference, June 19-20 in San Francisco, to examine a fundamental shift that is redefining the role of information technology departments in companies of all sizes and creating business and technical opportunities for entrepreneurs.

How are information technology departments transforming themselves from simply being cost centers to planning for next-generation computing to support business? It’s not only an issue that faces big business but also is the case for banks, retail shops and other sectors of the economy where mobile, digital or cloud strategies all are integral parts of running business and serving customers.

  • Pat Gelsinger, VMWare
  • Werner Vogels, Amazon
  • Satya Nadella, Microsoft
  • Jay Parikh, Facebook
  • Bob Muglia, Juniper
  • Jeff Dean, Google
  • Lew Moorman, Rackspace
