SVForum Cloud Day 2012 Experts Peek behind the Great Cloud Opportunity

San Jose, Calif. (PRWEB) September 25, 2012

SVForum (http://www.svforum.org), the leading non-profit organization for technologists and entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, today announced the full line-up of speakers for SVForum Cloud Day, http://tinyurl.com/CloudDay2012, to be held Thursday, September 27, 2012 at Microsofts Mountain View Campus. Sponsors include Accenture, IBM, Microsoft BizSpark and SAP.

SVForums Cloud Day brings together many of the cloud industrys major players for brainstorming and information sharing through presentations by industry thought leaders and conversations with senior-level representatives from major players in the cloud ecosystem. Networking sessions will allow participants to meet and exchange ideas that may help to drive the future of the industry.

A key part of our charter is to provide opportunities for technologists and executives to explore the potential and implications of new technologies. said Chris Gill, President and CEO of SVForum. Partnering with such respected industry experts and partners has positioned SVForums Cloud Day to be a significant gathering of cloud ecosystem visionaries and experts ready to help the Cloud continue to realize it promise and potential.

There are applications running in the cloud today that are bigger than all of the clouds racked together back in 2008, said Dave Nielsen, Co-chair, Cloud SIG, Founder, CloudCamp. At Cloud Day, we’re going to discuss new ways to use the Cloud that had never been thought possible before.

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: http://tinyurl.com/RegisterCloudDay Tweet with us! #SVFCloud @SVForum.
