Cloud Economics Conference

Joe Weinman Track Chair:

Communications, Media, and Entertainment Industry Strategic Programs,

Cloud technology doesn't matter at all unless compelling business benefits drive adoption. Public cloud computing services offer usage-sensitive pricing models, but possibly at a premium to enterprise do-it-yourself. Some claim that cloud computing is overhyped and at the peak of inflated expectations, others that all IT will shortly run in the cloud. No one seems to agree on benefits of cloud computing and how to quantify them. In this track, the leading proponents of Cloudonomics will provide detailed analytical methods, case studies, and benchmark data to help session attendees understand how to assess benefits, avoid myths, and solidly plot a roadmap for cloud adoption.
