As the world continues to recover from the global financial crisis, the IT industry is undergoing fundamental shifts in technology adoption and usage. Cloud computing is a key driver of this change, and has rapidly evolved from over-hyped marketing buzzwords to strategic IT initiatives. But as cloud adoption grows, so too do the challenges and concerns amongst senior decision-makers. The need for prescriptive guidance, perspective and clear recommendations are now more important than ever.
Asian Cloud Frontiers 2011 is the premier event in Asia Pacific for IT and business executives seeking to equip themselves with the expertise and understanding necessary to leverage cloud computing to drive business value.
With an agenda targeted specifically at senior IT and Business Decision-Makers, attendees will gain a thorough understanding of best practices for successful cloud adoption through highly interactive sessions with well-known industry experts and cloud providers. More importantly, attendees will have an opportunity to learn from cloud adopters themselves and interact with industry peers.
Asian Cloud Frontiers 2011 builds on Springboard Research's established expertise and experience in both the Cloud and SaaS markets in Asia Pacific. This follows from the success of Cloud Asia 2010, which was held in 7 cities spanning 4 countries. In addition to senior executives from Citrix Online, Google, HCL, SAP, Symantec Hosted Services (now Symantec.Cloud), VMWare and others, attendees to Cloud Asia 2010 heard from a variety of experts, including:
• Ajay Kumar Dhir, Group CIO, Jindal Steel
• Mark Ross, Founder, CloudGarage (Former CIO of AIG & Sunlife)
• Julian Lincoln, Senior Associate, Freehills
• Suzi Dafnis, Community Director, Australian Businesswomen's Network
