9:10 – 10:00 am

Cloud for Business
Aditya Vatal

This session is for CEOs, CFO, CIO, CTO and senior management in large enterprises and Fortune 1000 firms. Join Professor Watal of the New York University as he takes you through the roller coaster ride in the backyards of your clients and competitors and be prepared to unlearn and relearn if you want to make your mind less cloudy. Learn the secrets of other CXOs in your peer firms, how they are thinking about the cloud as a new competitive advantage, new financial level and a new technology choice. Learn also about the two biggest trends in the last 100 years of computing and what they mean to the future of our planet.

10:00 – 10:45 am

Spending More on Cloud for Fun and Profit
Scott Sanchez, Director of Strategy, Rackspace
15 years ago, you spent $50 a month on a cell phone, only a few of your employees had them, and calls cost 20 cents a minute. You worked hard to restrict or even shrink your cell phone bills each month, because it was a luxury that didn't have a meaningful impact on your business back then. Today, everyone carries a smartphone that does 1000x more than the cell phones of the past, and instead of $50 it costs you $150 despite "units" (minutes) costing next to nothing now. You're happy to spend that money because it makes your business move faster, do more, and be more profitable as a result.

Businesses need to think about cloud in the same way. The past 15 years of IT have all been about how to spend less, consolidate and reduce budgets. Cloud can bring the cost per "unit" down drastically from what virtualization or dedicated machines cost just a few years ago, but the self service and automation that it brings allows your business to move faster and achieve the innovation levels you always dream about. Imagine going from idea to production in 30 minutes ten years ago? Today that's possible with cloud computing, and it means happier product and development teams, and bigger profits for the business as a result.

In this talk, Scott Sanchez, Director of Strategy at Rackspace will explore how you should be thinking about cloud spending, organizing your teams for success, and what you can accomplish when you take the IT budget reduction hat off and focus on moving faster instead of spending less

CAPEX VS OPEX and how that drives innovation
Michael Gendron, Professor MIS, Central Connecticut State University
Businesses regularly look at measurements to make decisions. These include significant financial concepts and measures to help organizations understand how infrastructure can deliver economic benefit. Financial measures provide a "rear view mirror" of what has already happened in your organization. When taken over time and correlated with actions by your organization these measurements can be used to assess the impact of these actions. Financial measurements can also be used as "looking forward" to aid in the comparison of options estimating some of the inputs to the measurements. These include things like total cost of ownership (operation), and CAPEX Vs. OPEX, which will be covered in this presentation.

JPMorgan Chase Adopts Private Cloud with Apprenda
Rakesh Malhotra, VP of Products at Apprenda
JPMorgan Chase saw an opportunity to migrate their .NET and Java application portfolio and future strategy into cloud by leveraging private PaaS. This would provide a competitive advantage in both time and money and reshape JPMorgan's software development and IT maturity. The bank chose Apprenda's private PaaS, which now hosts over 2,000 applications and has saved the firm significant costs, provided application time to market improvement of 59 days and a 45 percent drop in infrastructure costs amongst other benefits. Hear the case study on the benefits of leveraging private cloud for custom enterprise apps.

Building a Big Data Analytics Cloud - A Healthcare Analytics Example
Jim Fisher, Director, Sales Consulting, Oracle
Cloud and Big Data make a great combination when combined with analytics. In nearly every industry, the amount of data available to drive decisions is rapidly growing. (Car Telemetry, trade data, medical device,mobile devices, loyalty cards, social media) Governments alone publish over a million datasets per year. New insight and opportunities are uncovered if you can combine this data and drive analysis and discovery. Using a healthcare example, such a combination and its benefits will be explored

Mohammad Zaman

Hear Mohammad Zaman an instructor at NJIT teaching the CloudMaster program. This program was added to New Jersey Institute of Technology's continuing professional education curriculum and part of the State of New Jersey's federal grant recipient for emerging technology training.

Learn more about a comprehensive Cloud Training with coverage of the current technologies, building an enterprise architecture for hybrid cloud and operations with automation has been a great success so far. The gap of cloud skills in the marketplace (as per IDC, in year 2012 alone 2.6 million, and with the demand of 7 million by 2015 requires all around knowledge with specific specialization. The clarity of perceptional values, specially security, and the architectural nomenclatures of different cloud provider is a true key to have a successful deployment of the cloud for any size organization.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
