Cloud Connect, produced by UBM Tech, is the defining event of the cloud computing industry. As both a conference and an exhibition, Cloud Connect's goal is to chart the course of cloud computing's development by bringing together enterprise IT professionals, developers, infrastructure and service providers and cloud computing innovators. UBM Tech has produced cloud events that define and frame cloud computing discussions since June 2008, including Cloud Summit Executive and Enterprise Cloud Summit at Interop. Cloud Connect plays a vital role in informing the market and bringing all cloud constituents together in meaningful ways.
Cloud spending is predicted to grow by 19% in 2012 becoming a $109 billion industry, according to Gartner. As both enterprises and small to medium size business turn to cloud computing technologies to reduce costs and gain efficiencies, they need information on how best to utilize these new tools and migrate to the cloud.
Cloud Connect is the one place where IT professionals and executives can get the relevant, vendor neutral information and education on the latest cloud innovations and opportunities.
