Got a story to tell about the cloud? We want to hear from you.
VentureBeat’s second annual cloud conference, CloudBeat 2012, will take place on November 28-29 at the Sofitel Hotel in Redwood Shores, Calif.
This two-day conference takes a deep look at the role cloud computing is playing in the enterprise. Unlike almost every other enterprise conference, this one is customer-focused.
Enterprise customers, not vendors, are the biggest stars of this show.
The people you can learn from are those who have been in the trenches, deploying and using cloud technologies in the real world. That’s why many of the speakers who attract the most attention and generate the biggest buzz at CloudBeat will be chief information officers and IT executives, not technology company representatives.
So if you’ve got a story to tell about how you’ve used the cloud, we want to hear from you.
(We’ll also have a handful of sessions where we hear from other cloud industry experts — not necessarily end users.)
Please be clear if you are applying to speak as a customer with a specific case study to share with the audience. If you are not a customer but you have interesting customer stories to share with the audience, we will consider these submissions as well. In rare but compelling instances, we may allow a cloud provider to share the stage with one of their customers.
Use the form below to send us your case study summary. We look forward to hearing from you!

VentureBeat is creating an index of the top 'arms merchants' of the cloud. Take a look at our initial suggestions and complete the survey to help us build a definitive index. We’ll publish the official index later this month, and for those who fill out surveys, we’ll send you an expanded report free of charge.
