Compuware to Present on Control in the Clouds at Cloud Expo Europe

Richard Stone to Discuss How Cloud Is Driving A Fundamental Shift in the Way Organizations Build, Deploy, & Use Applications

Cloud Computing is driving a fundamental shift in the way organizations build, deploy and use applications, and it's raising expectations on how quickly and cost-effectively new IT functionality can be made available to the business. And even though the delivery chain for these "borderless applications" now crosses organizational and geographic boundaries, users will still expect the applications to perform well, and they will hold IT accountable if they don't. For its part, IT is faced with managing an increasingly complex and diverse delivery chain, consisting of maybe dozens of service and content providers spread around the world.

The challenge for IT is to meet the business expectation of faster delivery of new functionality, while at the same time maintaining end-to-end visibility and control of application performance and availability across an inter-dependent, but independent, network of service providers.

In this general session at the 6th International Cloud Expo, Richard Stone, Senior Telecom Solution Manager at Compuware, will provide some real-world insight into how companies are successfully addressing this challenge, including details of how they can get objective, real-time data on the performance and availability of their prospective cloud service providers to assist them in their decision-making process."

"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and chairman of SYS-CON Events, Inc. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade.
