In this CTO Power Panel at the 12th International Cloud Expo, moderated by Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan, topics discussed will be at a deliberately high level and will include:

  • How fast will the last remaining barriers to enterprise-wide cloud adoption melt away - are truly secure public clouds feasible, for example, or only private ones?
  • How exactly does a company or organization go about deciding whether to migrate only specific applications to the cloud - such as storage or security - or their overall IT infrastructure?
  • How much of an influence on cloud adoption is the US Government's continuing support of Cloud strategies for all government agencies?
  • Will anything ever satisfy the thirst for security, compliance, and SLA assurances at the enterprise level of Cloud computing?
  • Do you agree with those analysts who say that 2013/14 will be The Year of the Cloud Database? If not, then what will it be the year of?
