SYS-CON's Cloud Expo Adds Two New Tracks

The addition of "SOA in the Cloud" and "RIAs in the Cloud" tracks widens and deepens the technical program

Cloud computing is a game changer. The cloud is disrupting traditional software and hardware business models by disrupting how IT service gets delivered, and entrepreneurial opportunities abound as this classic disruptive technology begins to proliferate. So it is no surprise that SYS-CON's industry-leading International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo series is going from strength to strength. The latest expansion of its wide-ranging technical program is the addition of two brand new tracks for its biggest-ever event, 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo, being held November 2-4, 2009, in the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA.

"SOA in the Cloud" - The convergence of SOA and Cloud Computing is now so clear a trend industry-wide that a new "SOA in the Cloud" track will make its first - but definitely not its last! - appearance as a new content focus within our fast-growing International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo series, now held three times a year, in New York, Santa Clara, and Prague. Cloud computing is accelerating the adoption of SOA by providing aspects of SOA on-demand.

In a recent article published at SOA World Magazine, SOA and Cloud expert David Linthicum wrote:

"Clearly, SOA and cloud computing go hand-in-hand. Cloud computing is just the ability to leverage new platforms and resources that you don't happen to own. Nothing really changes outside of that, including the need to do SOA right."

"RIAs in the Cloud" - Today we are witnessing a change in the way the industry thinks about software applications. The increase in SaaS application development and consumption is driving up demand for RIAs and a new set of platform technologies built specifically to develop and deliver them. Software vendors, both large and small, are now considering how best to adapt to the new paradigms of the RIA and SaaS markets, while a large number of developers are moving to RIA and SaaS application development.

Our aim with each new International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo is to showcase breakout sessions from members of every layer of the Cloud ecosystem. The submission process is 100% online and the submissions URL is here. (Closing date July 15, 2009.)

By adding these two tracks to the program we help ensure, through an intense and carefully chosen program of technical and strategic breakout sessions, that attending delegates will leave the 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo with abundant resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately to leveraging the Cloud, helping them to maximize performance, minimize cost and improve the scalability of their Enterprise IT endeavors.

The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of recent developments, including containers and Docker, distributed resource management, and DevOps tool chains and processes. The resulting infrastructure and management framework must be optimized for distributed and scalable applications, take advantage of innovation stemming from a wide variety of open source projects, span hybrid environments, and be adaptable to equally fundamental changes happen...
For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT. We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.
Bill Schmarzo, Tech Chair of "Big Data | Analytics" of upcoming CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York (November 12-13, 2018, New York City) today announced the outline and schedule of the track. "The track has been designed in experience/degree order," said Schmarzo. "So, that folks who attend the entire track can leave the conference with some of the skills necessary to get their work done when they get back to their offices. It actually ties back to some work that I'm doing at the University of San Francisco which creates an "Outcomes-Centric Business Analytics" degree." Bill Schmarzo, author of "Big Data: Understanding How Data Powers Big Business" and "Big Data MBA: Driving Business Strategies with Data Science" is responsible for guiding the technology strategy within Hitachi Vantara for IoT and Analytics. Bill brings a balanced business-technology approach that focuses on business ou...
CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
