Abstract

As technologists we not only need to understand how a technology works, but also how it can add value to a business. Enthusiasm for the cloud is great but it alone will not lead to widespread adoption. In this talk we will discuss why organizations would benefit by leveraging the cloud, and cover strategies for persuading key decision makers.

Abstract

There is no true abstract for this month’s meeting.  We’ll start off with a brief recap of the latest Windows Azure announcements coming out of TechEd the week before.  We’ll then quickly move into a fishbowl style discussion – sharing experiences of cloud victories and cloud defeats.  What has worked well?  What has not?  How have others solved similar problems?  What do other cloud platforms offer that could help solve a particular problem?
