Cloud Connect Summit Comes To Interop Las Vegas

The evolution of the cloud-enabled enterprise is well underway, challenging established technology providers and reshaping the CIO and IT organization as we know it. It's no longer a question of whether cloud is the right strategy, but how to leverage the cloud's abundance of resources and applications to outmaneuver, out-innovate, and outpace the competition.

But many questions – big questions – remain about how companies will get there. That’s the focus of our first Cloud Connect Summit @ Interop Las Vegas, which tackles the latest thinking in cloud technologies, platforms and architectural approaches. It will also explore the organizational and policy considerations for the cloud-enabled enterprise.

Here are just of few of the amazing speakers we’ve lined up for the Summit:


Jonathan Murray, EVP and Chief Technology Officer, Warner Music Group

The Composable Enterprise


Sandra Kurtzig, CEO, Kenandy

Cloud ERP: Empowering Real People


Jared Wray, Chief Technology Officer, CenturyLink Cloud

Human Cost of Cloud


Joe Weinman, Author, Cloudonomics

Strategically Exploiting the Cloud


Margaret Dawson, VP of Product Marketing & Cloud Evangelist, HP Cloud Services

Cloud in the Era of Hybrid Washing – What’s Real, What’s Not?


Mark Thiele, EVP Data Center Technology, Switch

The Goat and the Silo: What an Old Calculus Problem Can Teach Us about Instilling the Culture of DevOps


In the run-up to the Summit, you can make your voice heard in the cloud debate by participating in our Enterprise Cloud Adoption Survey 2014.

The survey, which closes on February 28, will define the current state of how and why organizations are using cloud solutions within their industries, and highlight the most significant adoption drivers and challenges, future plans, and more. This year's results will also include year-over-year comparisons with 2013 and 2012, with noted areas of change. Results from the survey will be presented at Cloud Connect Summit on March 31.

In appreciation for your participation, you'll receive a copy of the survey findings and be entered for a chance to win a complimentary conference pass to Cloud Connect Summit @ Interop in Las Vegas, March 31 to April 1, 2014. Just be sure to complete your contact information at the beginning of the survey.

The survey is comprised of three sections and should take only about 5-8 minutes to complete. Thank you for your time and participation!
