Silicon Valley's Quadruple Whammy: Cloud, Big Data, SDN and WebRTC

Four Busy Days, Four Interlocking Themes, One Convenient Location: The Santa Clara Convention Center

According to a report published recently by Wikibon the total Big Data market reached $11.4 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $18.2 billion this year. IDC says big data will be $24B market by 2016.

As for the Cloud, the cloud computing marketplace will reach $16.7 billion in revenue this year, including the large and well-established SaaS category, according to a research report by 451 Market Monitor, compared to a revenue of $8.7 billion in 2010.

Put simply, there's a massive transformation under way from buying IT to IT being a broker for service providers and IT consumed on demand.

Then comes Software-Defined Networking. Like big data, SDN is a trend that is changing the landscape of the networking industry today. Enterprises are expecting more agility from their data center plumbing to properly accommodate the innovation that's going on in other departments.

And finally we have a two-day set of sessions on WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) – the open source project supported by Google, Mozilla and Opera, that is widely acclaimed to be one of the most dynamic areas within enterprise IT and cloud computing right now.

Take a deep-dive into all four of these massive waves of IT innovation/disruption at 13th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, co-located with 4th Big Data Expo and 2nd SDN Expo. The entire Quadruple Whammy can be enjoyed November 4–7, 2013, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

CloudEXPO Stories
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
