The Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) is pleased to announce the
summit, "Preparing for the Post-IaaS Phase of Cloud Adoption," which it
will host at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol in Austin, Texas
on Thursday, September 18.
As Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) adoption has entered the
mainstream, technologies and services that build upon it - specifically
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) in its many and varied forms - will become
more of a focal point for cloud consumers, and will be more disruptive
to the traditional IT organization and business processes.
The summit will offer customer and industry perspectives with talks
focusing on the impact PaaS has had on business transformation; what
DevOps means for the average business; and how to transform
organizations for the "Cloud First" era. The keynote address,
"Navigating the Next Wave of Cloud Transformation" will be delivered by
Dr. Donald F. Ferguson, Software CTO, VP and Senior Fellow, Dell. The
panel of key industry players will also discuss current and future PaaS
"At CSCC's Cloud Standards Symposium in Boston this past June, a panel
of members agreed that PaaS is the future of cloud computing," said Dr.
Craig Lowery, Executive Director and Sr. Distinguished Engineer, Cloud,
Software CTO Group, Dell. "In Austin this September, we'll dig further
into current and future PaaS trends - not just the technology, but also
the business transformation opportunities and challenges this next phase
of cloud adoption brings. Anyone who is either considering or already
employing cloud computing in their business will have the chance to
learn and to be heard during this jam-packed interactive day."
The registration fee for the full-day summit is $175 for CSCC members;
$225 for nonmembers. To view the full agenda and register, visit www.cloudstandardscustomercouncil.org/austin-14.
The Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) is an OMG end-user
advocacy group dedicated to accelerating cloud's successful adoption and
drilling down into the standards, security and interoperability issues
surrounding the transition to the cloud. While not a standards
organization, CSCC complements existing cloud standards efforts by
establishing a core set of client-driven requirements that ensure cloud
users will have the same freedom of choice, flexibility and openness
they have with traditional IT environments. CSCC is open to all end-user
organizations. For more information, visit www.cloud-council.org.
