Topics & Speakers:
Cloud Computing: What's next?
Cloud isn’t just for your favorite CRM application anymore. Today’s cloud offers significant gains in speed-to-deployment, business agility, scalability and cost savings that can benefit both large enterprises and small-to-medium sized businesses. Cloud infrastructure and solutions can be implemented holistically across the enterprise, or as a way to rapidly address specific time-sensitive needs. This panel session will address the latest in cloud-based trends, solutions, applications development, security and more. Get beyond the buzz words, and learn how to make the cloud work for you.
Big Data: The Successes and Real Opportunities
Big Data has become something of a buzzword that everybody talks about. Now that we know what it is and that its relevant, what’s next? How big is data analytics going to be? What successes and real opportunities or innovations will stem from it? Join the WTIA for the Big Data session as we welcome a panel of thought leaders to discuss success stories in the area of data analytics over the last year and what opportunities and innovations will give big data traction to make it real.
