You're getting pitched every day from your legacy enterprise software and hardware vendors about "cloud". They're doing an amazing job of convincing your CIO and CTO about what cloud is and how you should use it. The reality is they're defending their shrinking market share and keeping you on the legacy treadmill for as long as they can by selling you solutions that aren't "cloud".
In this session, Niki Acosta, Cloud Evangelista for Rackspace, and Scott Sanchez, Director of Private Cloud Strategy will talk through the 5 dirty little secrets your legacy IT vendors won't tell you about cloud. Attendees will leave with an understanding how you should really be thinking about building enterprise apps for the cloud while embracing the fundamental shift away from legacy IT.
