Leading C-Suite Perspectives Upcoming at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley

The "Awesome Autumn of Cloud Computing" Culminates Nov 7-10 in Silicon Valley

What does the CIO of the National Reconnaissance Office have in common with the CEOs of Abiquo, Apprenda, Tier3, OutSystems and OpSource, the Co-Founder & CTO of Dell Boomi, the CTOs of Rackspace, rPath, Compuware, BMC, NextIO, SoftLayer, SOA Software, Gale Technologies, CiRBA and UShareSoft, and the Chief Cloud Executive at VMware?  Answer: all are members of the distinguished Speaker Faculty of Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, due to take place November 7-10, 2011, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - the heart of Silicon Valley.

Cloud Computing is changing the way we work and live. The economic realities that companies faced this year and last led many IT executives in 2010 and 2011 to closely evaluate cloud computing. The cloud is here to stay, and it is expanding fast.

Cloud computing is fast shifting responsibility for application maintenance, operations and disaster recovery development from the business user to the service provider. Companies of every size, from giants to start-ups, have been finding the cloud offers an attractive business proposition and are already leveraging its potential for significant upside in terms of cost and new opportunities.

Five or 10 years from now, most companies and people in the developed world will be connected to the cloud in some fashion, unlocking a tremendous amount of opportunity, productivity, and wealth.

Attending Cloud Expo Silicon Valley (November 7-10) is your chance to move far beyond discussions about how to define cloud computing and focus instead on the real story: the highly productive and potentially profitable changes it is creating in the way we both work and live.
