Find Your Way Through the Clouds
Sign Up Today for Cloud Computing Bootcamp
at Cloud Expo 2013 New York
Want to make sense of the hottest new concept in Enterprise IT?
Want to understand in just hours what experts have spent many hundreds of days deciphering?
Cloud computing as a term has been around for a few years now. There have been several areas where cloud computing has made great strides, especially in start-ups and web based companies. However, cloud adoption has been spotty in the enterprise. There are several areas of success in the software-as-a-service domain in certain business areas like CRM. However, there is still a great opportunity for enterprises to tap into the power of cloud technology to innovate and deliver significant value to meet dynamic business requirements.
At a number of conferences, the message is still focused on "how to use the cloud". There are a lot of successes that are not covered in an in-depth manner that helps accelerate cloud adoption in the enterprise. Several areas powered by the cloud like big data, mobile and social networking need to be shared in a more detail.
The cloud Bootcamp theme in New York will focus be "Enterprise Cloud Adoption" and will consist of a series of case studies presented. Each session will focus on one cloud topic with an overview of the topic by Larry Carvalho followed by a case study. Stay tuned for the agenda updates as we select topics and speakers.
The ever-popular Bootcamp, which is now held regularly around the world, is being held this time round in conjunction the 13th Cloud Expo in New York, NY (June 10-13, 2013). It is led by our 2013 Bootcamp Instructor Larry Carvalho.
BOOTCAMP SUMMARY: A compelling deep-dive into just what it takes to take full advantage of cloud computing. Get a fuller understanding of the capabilities of different vendors and how they address rapidly changing market demands.

Spending More on Cloud for Fun and Profit Scott Sanchez, Director of Strategy, Rackspace 15 years ago, you spent $50 a month on a cell phone, only a few of your employees had them, and calls cost 20 cents a minute. You worked hard to restrict or even shrink your cell phone bills each month, because it was a luxury that didn't have a meaningful impact on your business back then. Today, everyone carries a smartphone that does 1000x more than the cell phones of the past, and instead of $50 it costs you $150 despite "units" (minutes) costing next to nothing now. You're happy to spend that money because it makes your business move faster, do more, and be more profitable as a result.
Businesses need to think about cloud in the same way. The past 15 years of IT have all been about how to spend less, consolidate and reduce budgets. Cloud can bring the cost per "unit" down drastically from what virtualization or dedicated machines cost just a few years ago, but the self service and automation that it brings allows your business to move faster and achieve the innovation levels you always dream about. Imagine going from idea to production in 30 minutes ten years ago? Today that's possible with cloud computing, and it means happier product and development teams, and bigger profits for the business as a result.
In this talk, Scott Sanchez, Director of Strategy at Rackspace will explore how you should be thinking about cloud spending, organizing your teams for success, and what you can accomplish when you take the IT budget reduction hat off and focus on moving faster instead of spending less

CAPEX VS OPEX and how that drives innovation Michael Gendron, Professor MIS, Central Connecticut State University Businesses regularly look at measurements to make decisions. These include significant financial concepts and measures to help organizations understand how infrastructure can deliver economic benefit. Financial measures provide a "rear view mirror" of what has already happened in your organization. When taken over time and correlated with actions by your organization these measurements can be used to assess the impact of these actions. Financial measurements can also be used as "looking forward" to aid in the comparison of options estimating some of the inputs to the measurements. These include things like total cost of ownership (operation), and CAPEX Vs. OPEX, which will be covered in this presentation.

The Arlington, Virginia-based National Science Foundation has just released its "Report on Support for Cloud Computing" - in response to the America Competes Reauthorization Act of 2010, Section 524.
It is an absolute must-read for all concerned with current and future research projects in Cloud Computing.
"The volume of data we're generating now from machines pales in comparison to the volume of data we'll soon generate from our own bodies," says data security expert Dave Asprey. Writing in a Trend Micro blog, Asprey - who is one of the leaders in the emerging Quantified Self movement - explains his vision of a world in which personal biometrical data is shared via the cloud.
Cloud computing has caught the attention of business leaders around the world in every
industry because of its enormous transformative potential. Visionary companies know that
the value of the cloud is far greater than the current focus solely on technology and operating
costs: when combined with a collaborative approach to designing processes, cloud computing
will change how we do business.
Want to make sense of the hottest new concept in Enterprise IT?
Want to understand in just hours what experts have spent many hundreds of days deciphering?
Cloud computing is a technology that has rapidly evolving peppered with a lot of hype along the way. Customers find it hard to navigate through this and make sense of what aspects of this technology will give them real business benefit.
Cloud Computing Bootcamp, led by our 2013 Bootcamp Instructor Larry Carvalho, is a great way to get a practical understanding of this technology. We offer multiple days of actionable insight into what vendor offerings are currently available and help you comprehend their strategy.
The ever-popular Bootcamp, which is now held regularly around the world, is being held in conjunction with the 12th Cloud Expo, June 10-13, 2013, at the Javits Center, New York, NY.
Did you know that ninety percent of the data in the world has been created in the last two years? Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion (or 2.518) bytes of data, according to IBM.
As corporations across all industries globally are struggling with how to retain, aggregate and analyze this mounting volume of what the industry refers to as Big Data, it also provides a unique opportunity for innovative startups that recognize the business prospects Big Data presents. Big Data is not just unlocking new information but new sources of economic and business value.
Interactivity is driving Big Data, with people and machines both consuming and creating it. Digital companies focused on becoming good at aggregating and analyzing the data created by the end users of their product, who then provide their customers with solid insights taken from that data are at a distinct competitive advantage over others in the marketplace.
Industry-specific clouds are those PaaS, IaaS, and PaaS services that are tailored for a specific vertical, such as transportation, retail, finance, and health care. IDC sees a $65 billion market in these industry solutions for 2013, rising to $100 billion in 2016.
The value of industry-specific clouds is that businesses within a vertical can connect to applications, processes, and databases that are pre-defined for that vertical within a public or private cloud. They can extend processes and databases into the business domain, versus defining the data and processes within a generic cloud-based platform.
So, are industry specific clouds right for your business? What options are out there? How do you figure out the ROI?

Cloud computing is becoming one of the next industry buzz words. It joins the ranks of terms including: grid computing, utility computing, virtualization, clustering, etc.
Cloud computing overlaps some of the concepts of distributed, grid and utility computing, however it does have its own meaning if contextually used correctly. The conceptual overlap is partly due to technology changes, usages and implementations over the years.
Trends in usage of the terms from Google searches shows Cloud Computing is a relatively new term introduced in the past year. There has also been a decline in general interest of Grid, Utility and Distributed computing.
Likely they will be around in usage for quit a while to come. But Cloud computing has become the new buzz word driven largely by marketing and service offerings from big corporate players like Google, IBM and Amazon.

One of the most compelling promises of the cloud is that you can pull out a credit card and be working in minutes. No purchase orders to fill out, no equipment to wait for on the loading dock. Just instant access to the resources you need, when you need them. But accessibility comes at a price, and an unintentional consequence may be that you create yet another orphaned identity silo. Enterprise IT has spent years consolidating its mishmash of directories, only to discover that cloud now threatens to turn back their hard-won victories.
In his session at the 12th International Cloud Expo, Scott Morrison, CTO and Chief Architect at Layer 7 Technologies, will look at strategies to incorporate identity into cloud applications. Enterprise identity or social login can both be a part of your go-to-cloud strategy, but you must plan for this upfront, rather than try to retrofit identity and access control at a later date.
