Cloud Computing can help companies achieve their process changes faster
Nov. 11, 2008 10:31 AM
SYS-CON Events announced today that more than 40 Cloud technology providers, as well as Virtualization and SOA companies will exhibit at the upcoming 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo (www.CloudComputingExpo.com), November 19-21, in San Jose, California. The conference will be colocated with SYS-CON's 4th International Virtualization Conference & Expo (www.VirtualizationConference.com)
1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo will take place on November 19-21, 2008, at the Fairmont Hotel, downtown San Jose, CA
The events of the second half of 2008, where established financial institutions vanished overnight, have sent ripples through the entire fabric of the world's economy. This means that nimble new competitors can seize both global and regional market opportunities that previously have been taken for granted by the established multinationals. Unfortunately, the traditional IT infrastructure, responsible for facilitating changes demanded by the business, often falls short of being able to do just that. Cloud Computing can help companies achieve their process changes faster - to gain greater speed to revenue, more cost effective operations, and bring more agility and scale. However, Cloud Computing must offer more business activities instead of merely technology services. As long as Cloud Computing needs developers to function, it will never reach its full potential.

Free Cloud Computing Bootcamp on Nov 20, 2008, in San Jose, CA
1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo will offer a free "Cloud Computing Bootcamp" (http://cloudbootcamp.sys-con.com) on the second day of the conference, Thursday, November 20, 2008. Cloud computing is an opportunity for business to implement low cost, low power and high efficiency systems to deliver scalable infrastructure. But moving to a cloud infrastructure is not necessarily as nice and clean as the providers would want us to think. With cloud infrastructures problems don't magically go away, they just shift: you don't have scalability or storage problems any more, but you need constantly monitor the cloud and your application in it. In this compelling, intensive, one-day, hands-on training program, you will learn what it takes to take advantage of the Cloud - and whether it is right for you in the first place.
