Cloud Computing Workshop - Silicon Valley

Enterprise Cloud Workshop  - Co-located with CloudCamp SiliconValley





Cloud-Enable your Applications - Learn from the Experts

Business leaders are asking IT to provide an environment that responds quickly to business needs. Public Clouds have demonstrated their value; now Private Clouds are beginning to emerge. Join us for a workshop where experts from the field will share their experience and help you assess the risks and benefits of moving your application to public or private clouds.

To participate in this workshop, you will be asked to propose an application (real or hypothetical) that you want to run in the cloud. Your proposed application will be given a quick review based on previous assessments. We will use the proposals to help us determine the examples used in the workshop. At the end of the workshop you will receive a personalized assessment by one of the facilitators.

Who should attend:

Architects, Product Managers, Project Managers, IT Specialists, IT Managers, IT Directors, Developers, System Administrators and Business Leaders.
