It is no accident that we have recently seen a surge in the amount of interest in big data. Businesses are faced with unprecedented opportunities to understand their customers, achieve efficiencies and predict future trends thanks to the convergence of a number of technologies.
Last month, I joined three leading tech executives at Cloud Expo New York to talk about how cloud computing and Big Data are transforming enterprise IT. In addition to myself, the panel featured Bruce E. Otte, director of platform and workload services at IBM; Greg O’Connor, president and CEO of AppZero; and Kevin Brown, CEO of Coraid.
Cloud Expo 2013 kicks off today at New York City’s Javits Center and Rackspace has plenty of opportunities for you learn about the cloud, mingle with Rackers and discover new ways cloud computing can help your business.
Heading to Cloud Expo in NYC from June 10 to June 13? We hope to see you at our booth (#300) and invite you to check out some of our featured educational sessions hosted by Rackers, including a keynote by Rackspace Vice President of Enterprise Cloud Solutions Lisa Larson that examines the innovation behind the hybrid cloud.
Last year, in my cloud predictions for 2012, I focused heavily on how open source code will become the standard and how the future will be mobile. In 2012, we at Rackspace officially launched our open cloud effort built on OpenStack; and mobility now dominates day-to-day work and life.
Cloud Expo kicks off today at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. The 11th International Cloud Expo brings together some of the brightest minds in the cloud and there will be a number of Rackers there to discuss the power of the open cloud during a thought-provoking keynote presentation and other sessions. Rackers will also be on-hand at the Rackspace booths on the expo show floor.
