Cloud Computing Set to Unleash a Perfect Storm in Business
Shift happens. The unexpected matters. Right now, there‘s something in the air, something really big. It‘s so big that to many it‘s hidden in plain sight. We are witnessing a seismic shift in information technology, the kind that comes around every decade or so, and it will have a huge impact on business, especially in today‘s volatile economy and world of exponential change. It‘s called „the Cloud“ a 21st century business platform built on cloud computing technologies. In this keynote, Peter takes us on a fascinating journey to explore what the Cloud portends for business. In the past, IT was about productivity; now in the Cloud it‘s about collaboration, a shared information base, and collective intelligence. The „wow“ isn‘t about on-demand IT, it‘s about on-demand business innovation. Buckle up and get ready to win in this brave new world. You don‘t want to miss Peter‘s fast-paced and insightful talk. Peter Fingar, Meghan-Kiffer Research, Managing Principal
