Event Details

Cloud3 logo


In barely two years, cloud computing has transformed itself from a nebulous newcomer into a fixture of the IT landscape that no high-tech company, investor, or entrepreneur can afford to ignore. At the same time, cloud options—from Software as a Service to Platform as a Service to Infrastructure as a Service, and from private clouds to public clouds to hybrid clouds—have grown exponentially.

This Xconomy forum will forecast cloud computing’s impact on the IT climate for startups, small and medium-sized businesses, large enterprises, and consumers. What new services and features are bursting from the cloud? What new businesses and applications are they enabling? How can entrepreneurs and established businesses best take advantage of the cloud? Speakers will include executives and leading technologists from Boston’s biggest players in cloud computing as well as representatives from the sector’s new wave of startups and the investors behind them. Participants will network with the area's smartest experts, and will leave with a firmer grasp of the new computing-infrastructure options available to them as consumers and businesspeople.


Xconomy has forged a unique partnership with CloudCamp to make December 10 an incredible day of cloud computing. Our morning forum will be followed in the afternoon by a more technical examination of could computing: an unconference where early adopters—including end users, IT professionals, and vendors of cloud computing technologies—exchange ideas for the advancement of cloud computing. CloudCamp requires separate registration here:

In between Cloud3 and CloudCamp, Xconomy and Microsoft will host a networking lunch open to both sessions’ attendees.
