In these times of economic uncertainty and business consolidation, cloud computing can provide options when it comes to managing a business more effectively. But what does it mean to go into the "cloud"? Ultimately it sounds nebulous, vague at best. Can one run a business reliably and securely in the cloud? It sounds like a lot of hype, how does one separate the myth from reality?
The San Diego Chapter of AITP (Association of Information Technology Professional's), has joined forces with several national business associations to host a conference focused on Cloud Computing. They have invited cloud computing experts from across the nation from companies such as Amazon.com, Microsoft, Dell and SalesForce.com to share their knowledge. The theme; "Demystifying Cloud Computing".
"Cloud Computing is a natural evolution of the SaaS (Software as a Service) and Virtualization" said Yashpal Talreja, a former Technologist from Oracle and Amazon "Cloud Computing gives companies flexibility in using the elasticity of the cloud from increasing their raw computing capacity to benefiting from various services, varying from generalized services such as mapping services or specialized niche services such as look ups for negotiated fee for medical procedures for PPO networks."
The San Diego Chapter of AITP has worked tirelessly to find and secure renowned industry experts who have implemented various aspects of the cloud at an enterprise level. This is not the typical conference filled with theory and conjecture; it's a real world look at what's being done in cloud computing today. The goal is to help professionals separate the myth from reality. People attending this premier west coast conference on Cloud Computing will learn firsthand about the opportunities and challenges when implementing cloud computing solutions. They will also gain an overview of the multi-vendor, multi-product cloudscape combined with real-world examples and insightful analysis.
The San Diego Cloud Computing Conference featured speakers include John Igoe, Dir. of Advanced Service Technology in Dell's Services Organization; Peter Coffee, Dir. of Platform Research for Salesforce.com; Alyssa Henry, Dir. of Amazon Web Services for Amazon.com; Ned Curic Principal Platform Strategist for Microsoft. Attendees have the choice of attending a user based panel discussion or a vendor based panel discussion with panelists from Qualcomm, Websense, Prana, Teradata Corporation, CSC Navy Marine Corps Technical Center and more.
"If you stop to think about Cloud Computing, the possibilities are only limited by one's imagination. Many organizations are currently repositioning themselves to take full advantage of what the cloud has to offer. My team and I have worked hard to find experts who are on the cutting edge of the cloud. It's not every day you see professionals like John Igoe from Dell, Peter Coffee from Salesforce.com, Alyssa Henry from Amazon and Ned Curic from Microsoft under the same roof for a one day conference." Said Marc Clark, Chair of the Cloud Computing Conference and San Diego AITP board member.
