As the cloud computing discussion shifts from mainly technological conversations to discussions about business models and company cultures, the role of standards in the cloud has become increasingly important. When leveraging cloud, companies have different starting points and need to consider flexibility, simplicity, and standards around their implementation. Therefore, this month’s panelists may discuss questions such as:
- What are common business needs, use cases and starting points into cloud adoption today?
- What type of capabilities do companies need to consider for the different starting points?
- What are the ways that companies are leveraging Cloud today and why?
- What are the drivers to Cloud? What type of differentiators are companies achieving with Cloud?
- What are some examples of companies transforming their business with Cloud well today? Any best practices?
