Top Ten Reasons to Sponsor and Exhibit at Cloud Expo New York

Explore Enterprise IT’s two biggest game changers at Cloud Expo 2013 New York, co-located with Big Data Expo and SDN Expo

Cloud Computing, Big Data and Software Defined Networking are the hottest topics in Enterprise IT right now!

In its recent "Sizing the Cloud" report Forrester Research said it expects the global cloud computing market to reach $240 billion in 2020, up from $40 billion in 2010. Companies worldwide are keen to purchase solutions enabling enterprise class cloud computing control, performance, availability, and scalability. But these companies need to see demos and speak with Cloud vendors and providers face-to-face.

The $5 billion Big Data market is on the verge of a rapid growth spurt that will see it top the $50 billion mark worldwide within the next five years. The US Dept. of Defense for example is placing a big bet on Big Data, investing over $200M annually.

According to a recent report by Deloitte Consulting, firms using Software-Defined Networking (SDN) can save up to 50% on their networking bills. Since those bills currently add up to about 10-15% of IT budgets, that's a huge amount of cost driven out of the business. That makes it very much the right new technology at the right time.

Put simply, SDN is the use of software to create networks that can be reconfigured quickly and centrally without the need for any costly or time-consuming adjustment of individual routers and switches.

Here are the 10 top reasons why you should sponsor and exhibit at Cloud Expo, Big Data Expo, and Software Defined Networking Expo 2013 New York, June 10-13, at the Javits Center and ensure your Cloud, Big Data, and SDN solutions are seen and understood by the entire enterprise IT industry including CIOs, CTOs, CIOs, Directors of Infrastructure, VPs of Technology & Engineering, IT Directors and Managers...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
