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.

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.

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation. This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends. Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new. Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid. This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...
