Cloud World Forum Heads To North America
The Cloud World Forum North America is the only place to discuss how cloud computing is transforming the enterprise in North America.
Online PR News – 15-September-2012 –Organisers of the hugely successful Cloud World Series - www.cloudworldseries.com - have launched the first ever edition of the Cloud World Forum North America - http://www.cloudworldseries.com/north-america/ - a one day cloud computing conference and exhibition taking place on the 6th December at the Sentry Centers in New York.
Understanding that the adoption of cloud computing by global companies has become a reality, the Cloud World Series North America will aim to provide local professionals and organisations with a clear picture of how this form of technology can help improve their IT department and, ultimately, develop their businesses.
Various studies predict a significant growth in North America's cloud adoption in the next few years, especially among US companies.
Although medium and large companies in the US currently have only a quarter of their applications (19%) hosted in the cloud, by 2014 they are expected to have almost doubled this number, as they will be hosting 33% of their applications in the cloud. In addition, other promising figures show that the SaaS revenue in the US is expected to reach $12.9 billion in 2015, up from $7.8 billion registered in 2011.
The 2012 Cloud World Forum North America will give attendees the opportunity to discuss the latest topics in cloud, including infrastructure as a service, cloud security, the rise of platform as as service (PaaS) and much more.
Speakers at the 2012 Cloud World Forum North America include:
- Avi Bender, CTO at US Census Bureau
- Richie Etwaru, COO Group Technology-Platform Services at UBS
- Ralph Decatrel, Director of Software Development at Shutterstock
- Jonathan Pearl, CIO at ShopRunner
- Richie Etwaru, COO Group Technology - Platform Services, UBS
With over 200 people in attendance from across the region, and a number of top global exhibitors and expert speakers providing expert opinion in the conference theatre, the inaugural Cloud World Forum North America is expected to be one of the most focused events on North America’s IT calendar.
