Session Summary:

Are you interested in 50% lower costs of operations? Is it compelling to understand how 90% of your integration requirements can be implemented by business users? What do customers want when it comes to the cloud, how does XaaS fulfill those needs, and what types of XaaS offerings (SaaS, PaaS) will do the job?

Global spending on public-cloud services will be more than double from $47.4 billion in 2013 to nearly $108 billion in 2017 – five times faster than the IT industry as a whole (Source IDC research) With hybrid and private options, this will make cloud not just the foundation for disruptive solutions but possibly for all IT solutions.

Cloud represents a sudden shift in Information Technology which will redefine business. It provides a means to optimize IT and allows the organizations to innovate itself that helps to drive results. Cloud is a journey, requiring proven technologies, business culture, expertise and a strong partner ecosystem. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS--software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.

ComTec’ s Cloud Computing L&L  is a unique opportunity to hear from leading experts in the field about top cloud strategies, developing a cloud-first approach, improving overall cloud performance, and operational best practices for managing and optimizing the new cloud models.
