Be informed and inspired at “Cloud Connect 2013,” April 2nd thru the 5th at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Cloud Connect serves to bring all categories of cloud constituents together in ways that are meaningful. This includes cloud computing innovators, developers, enterprise IT professionals, infrastructure providers, and service providers.
Keynote speakers will include Michael Barrett, PayPal’s Chief Information Security Officer. William Ruh, a General Electric VP and Global Technology Director, will speak on the emerging industrial Internet. David McCrory will discuss the important concept of data gravity. He is a Sr VP of DSP Engineering for the Warner Music Group.
Cisco’s Lew Tucker will offer a comprehensive view of cloud computing, SDN, and the “Internet of Everything.” He is the VP and Chief Technology Officer of Cloud Computing at Cisco.
The goal at Cloud Connect 2013 is simple — to bring IT professionals, executives and others together in a vendor-neutral environment so that they can access the latest information pertaining to cloud innovations and opportunities. Workshops will also allow in-depth learning in areas like cloud security, big data, and advanced private clouds.
The case for the importance of Cloud Connect is easy to make. Gartner projects more substantial growth in cloud spending. In 2012, it calculated a 19 percent increase, to $109 billion. Businesses of all types and sizes are now migrating to the cloud, and they require the tools to succeed at implementation.
UBM Tech produces Cloud Connect as both a conference and an exhibition. UBM has produced such events since 2008, like the Enterprise Cloud Summit at Interop. UBM Tech’s mission remains to bring the cloud’s constituents together in vital and important ways. Cloud Connect 2013 is another opportunity to help to inform the marketplace.
UBM Tech is a worldwide enterprise that delivers marketing and data services to the IT industry. It also conveys important business information via events like Cloud Connect, and through media and training as well.
UBM embraces the entire technology ecosystem so as to offer relevant and comprehensive insight to everyone participating in that system. This includes everyone from the engineers designing the next device to the developers creating apps for it. It also includes the telecommunications experts behind the infrastructure and the executives who turn that device into new levels of value for the customer.
Join together with others to help chart the future course of cloud computing from April 2-5, 2013 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
