CloudBeat 2012 speakers really have their heads in the cloud

CloudBeat 2012
CloudBeat 2012
is right around the corner, and we’re confident it’s going to be the cloud event of the year. Here’s why:

It’s unlikely that any single player will dominate the cloud computing market in the foreseeable future. So more and more enterprise IT leaders are taking a pragmatic, creative approach and adopting a wide range of solutions.

CloudBeat is unlike other cloud events because it puts those customers (the companies that are adopting cloud solutions) front and center to share their experiences and insights on what’s working and what’s not. Those customers are in the lineup right alongside the companies competing for their business. We’re talking two days packed with customer case studies, big-name fireside chats, and deep-dive breakouts, all aimed at helping a broader audience navigate through the rich, complex, and rapidly evolving cloud ecosystem.
