Panel Description:

The cloud computing phenomenon continues to expand at a tremendous pace. But as the market's understanding of cloud advances, the drivers and deployment scenarios that framed the initial cloud agenda are becoming increasingly irrelevant. As businesses begin to leverage virtualization and move a variety of mission critical and secondary applications to the cloud, how do they manage, secure and optimize their virtual infrastructure?

In today’s world corporations expect benefits that extend beyond cost savings and efficiency but also fuel sustained growth.

This panel will analyze the changing value proposition and usage scenarios for cloud services and will help CIOs and other key decision-makers understand what value contribution cloud computing is going to deliver in the foreseeable future.
