Why SVForum Cloud Day?

While not a new concept, cloud computing has finally emerged from relative obscurity to become a mainstream concept over the past several years. Widespread adoption is no longer in question, any credible software company necessarily offers its solutions on demand, and X-as-a-service has expanded from software to platforms and infrastructure. Yet despite these successes, many questions remain. How is cloud poised to continue its evolution? What factors are slowing advancement, and which pose the greatest risks and challenges? Which new technologies and architecture strategies can surmount obstacles, create new capabilities and enable potentially powerful business models? What role do M&A and venture financing play in driving the pace and depth of change across the sector?

SVForum Cloud Day brings together industry experts from around the world to discuss and answer these questions. To register: Tweet with us! #SVFCloud @SVForum.
