CIOs Don't Really Care About the Cloud

The Heat Map of Innovation

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

CIOs don't really care about the cloud. They care about budgets, security and compliance. All the buzzwords in the world won't help innovative technology unless it maps directly onto CIO pain points. This session investigates what those pain points are, and where emerging products and vendors are successfully solving real-world problems for end users. A picture of the cloud emerges, not as an abstraction viewed from the outside, but as a set of closely related changes taking place within the world's IT infrastructure.

Speaker Bio:
Rachel Chalmers is the Research Director for Infrastructure Management at The 451 Group. She has led the infrastructure software practice since its debut in April 2000. She pioneered coverage on SOA, distributed application management, utility computing and open source software. Today she focuses on datacenter automation and server, desktop and application virtualization. Chalmers was also the lead author of many 451 Special Reports, including 'V' for Virtualization: Transforming the datacenter, driving M&A' (Dec 2006); 'Virtualization II: Desktops and applications are next' (Jun 2007); and Virtualization III: Managing the virtual revolution (Nov 2007).

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.

Top-Class Speaker Lineup Will Explore the Technical & Business Value of Delivering IT Resources as Services
Speakers from all over the world are being hand-picked for their ability to explore the economics and strategies that utility/cloud computing provides. Topics include all aspects of providing or using massively scalable IT-related capabilities as a service using Internet technologies, including:

SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS
Automation
Grid Software
Elastic Computing
Cloud Databases
Scalability
Fabric Computing
Green IT
High-Performance Computing
Service Management
Web-scale Computing
Cloud Standards
Cloud Reliability & Security
Private Cloud Computing
Internal Clouds

The rich mix of technical and strategic sessions is expressly designed to help IT professionals make informed choices, since utility/cloud computing affects every aspect of how IT deploys and operates software, and will likely affect many aspects of how they develop/purchase it.

CloudEXPO Stories
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.
Data center, on-premise, public-cloud, private-cloud, multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud, IoT, AI, edge, SaaS, PaaS... it's an availability, security, performance and integration nightmare even for the best of the best IT experts. Organizations realize the tremendous benefits of everything the digital transformation has to offer. Cloud adoption rates are increasing significantly, and IT budgets are morphing to follow suit. But distributing applications and infrastructure around increases risk, introduces complexity and challenges availability at every turn. To embrace DX and to come out on top, there are four underlying principles that should guide you. Understanding these four essentials along with their relevance and impact will elevate you to DX Hero status now. Jonathan will provide a high-level overview of these principles and how some of his organization's clients have embraced them w...
The level of trust we have with individuals, businesses, and technology affects our lives daily. This is important to remember when discussing new technologies. For example, our level of trust is a critical factor when evaluating a new technology as a potential solution for providing business value. Given the importance of trust, imagine one's reaction upon hearing that blockchain is a "trustless trust" system. On the surface, that does sound like an oxymoron. This paper discusses how "trustless trust" applies to blockchain. It will discuss the various consensus algorithms used to provide that trust, including the benefits and challenges of each. Key use case patterns will be provided as examples and what the impact of the tradeoffs between consensus algorithms.
Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. PJ Hough, Citrix Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, discusses improving personal productivity with an evolved approach supporting modern workstyles and simplifying IT complexities to deliver the right experience to the right user at the right time, on any device.
