Cloud: An Opportunity
The world is changing. A new reality is emerging for organizations of every size from every part of the planet. It is called the cloud—a profound evolution of IT with revolutionary implications for business and society, creating new possibilities and enabling more efficient, ﬂexible and collaborative computing models. The term “cloud,” however, holds different meanings to different audiences.
Although I cannot interpret every organization’s understanding or use of cloud computing, what I can do is shine a light on how the cloud can be used to streamline and enhance the work of software developers and delivery professionals. In this talk, I will explain how the cloud and IBM can help you overcome challenges, take action to ensure security, meet goals rapidly and improve efficiency in your software delivery environment.
