GigaOM's Structure 08

Put Cloud Computing to Work

Structure 08 will gather the most innovative and influential industry leaders together to explore the latest Internet infrastructure buildout. It will sort through the emerging and disruptive computing technologies and inform businesses on how best to leverage them. And it will provide insight to investors and executives on the best implementations, ideas and startups out there today — and what to look for tomorrow.

Structure 08 is the brainchild of acclaimed technology commentator Om Malik, the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the GigaOM Network. True to past GigaOM Network conferences, the discussion will be relevant, incisive, and push knowledge forward. Past events have sold out, so register now to join the conversation.

More details are available on the Structure 08 website - http://www.structureconf.com



All of the key influencers in cloud computing and the web infrastructure buildout will be on hand to discuss the future of the business.
