The Cloud Grows Up

Hundreds of startups and small businesses have launched and scaled in the last few years, with little more than a bright idea and a credit card — all thanks to affordable cloud solutions like Amazon, Box, and Salesforce.

The cloud continues to deliver these advantages today. But now it’s not just a promise: Cloud technologies have a credible story and solid case studies to tell prospective customers in the enterprise.

Now in its third year, VentureBeat’s highly-acclaimed CloudBeat conference will track the growing maturity of the cloud through two days of high-value discussions, case studies, breakout sessions, and exclusive announcements.

Why CloudBeat?

Unlike nearly all other cloud events, the customers themselves are front and center. Their discussions with vendors and other experts unearth rare lessons on cloud adoption, providing insights and actionable data on new technologies, what really works, who’s buying what, and where the industry is going.

In other words, it’s not just your usual empty promises. CloudBeat will be filled with data and insights from the real world.

This year’s program features new cases from PayPal, NASA, Netflix, Pivotal, Linkedin, Disney, General Electric, IBM, Google, and Salesforce, to name a few. They’ll feature a senior IT executive from each company, talking about cloud strategy and implementation.

Pivotal CEO Paul Maritz will be speaking for the first time about the vision for his new product, Pivotal One, which he’s calling the “operating system for the cloud.”

Salesforce COO and second-in-command George Hu will also be making a rare appearance to talk about his company’s industry-leading SaaS tech.

Outstanding Networking

CloudBeat will help you find new investors, new hires, and new business opportunities through a series of organized initiatives including roundtable lunch discussions, quick-connect sessions, receptions, and dinners.
