Cloud Computing Expo: Are You Coming To Prague Next Week?

Find out first-hand from international experts why Cloud Computing is so attractive as a concept to business

Before turning over their company jewels to a Cloud-based solution, IT managers and engineers alike want to make technology choices based on knowing everything there is to know about the availability and security of their data, and they want to have their questions answered about connectivity, interoperabilty, and vendor lock-in. That is why so many IT industry stakeholders are going to Prague on Monday and Tuesday of next week.
