Enterprise Cloud Workshop - Co-located prior to CloudCamp Boston
Cloud-Enable your Applications - Learn from the Experts
Business leaders are asking IT to provide an environment that responds quickly to business needs. Public Clouds have demonstrated their value; now Private Clouds are beginning to emerge. Join us for a workshop where experts from the field will share their experience and help you assess the risks and benefits of moving your application to public or private clouds.
To participate in this workshop, you will be asked to propose an application (real or hypothetical) that you want to run in the cloud. Your proposed application will be given a quick review based on previous assessments. We will use the proposals to help us determine the examples used in the workshop. At the end of the workshop you will receive a personalized assessment by one of the facilitators.
We will be raffling off a copy of Judith Hurwitz' new book - "Smart or Lucky"

Architects, Product Managers, Project Managers, IT Specialists, IT Managers, IT Directors, Developers, System Administrators and Business Leaders.
