St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 09, 2014

Dr. Khalil Yazdi, CIO in Residence at Internet2, will be the keynote speaker on June 10 at the Three Rivers Systems CAMS Connect annual global users conference. His presentation The Emerging Higher Education Community Cloud: What It Portends for the Future of IT in Education will provide an overview of the research and education communitys Internet2 NET+ initiative that aims to leverage advanced networking and community engagement to make cloud services more relevant and accessible.

Internet2, a member-owned advanced technology community founded by the nations leading higher education institutions in 1996, provides a collaborative environment for US research and education organizations to accelerate research discovery, advance national global education, and improve the delivery of public services. Internet2s membership includes U.S. and international leaders in research, academia, industry and government, including Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, MIT, Stanford, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft and the National Institutes of Health.

Universities and colleges are rapidly adopting cloud computing as a way to provide technology services and deliver new applications and services more cost effectively and efficiently. A community cloud is a private cloud that is shared among a group of like-minded organizations with common technology needs.

Our clients are natural fits for the community cloud model, so were excited to bring someone of Dr. Yazdis stature to speak at our Global Users Community Conference, said Amir Tajkarimi, President and Founder of Three Rivers Systems.

As CIO in Residence at Internet2, he is responsible for cloud services development, working with service providers and university IT leadership to identify opportunities where strategic engagement will drive value to the Internet2 community.
