Cloud computing has changed the IT landscape over the past decade. This new technology came onto the technology scene at such a fast and furious pace that is seemed like it appeared out of….well from the clouds. However, behind the clouds, there are innovative people that made cloud computing happen. Charles Babcock, Editor At Large, for InformationWeek, looked at the short history of cloud computing and identified 10 cloud computing pioneers that have paved the way for cloud knowledge and adoption.
Here are Cloud Connect, we’re are proud to say that we’ve had three of the ten listed pioneers speak at our past cloud events! Cloud Connect provided the following cloud leaders a platform to share their vision and thoughts on cloud computing:
- Werner Vogels, CTO and VP of Amazon Web Services
- Randy Bias, cofounder and CTO of CloudScaling
- Lew Tucker, CTO of cloud computing at Cisco Systems
It was an honor to have these thought leaders participate in our conference. We’re currently putting together the program for Cloud Connect Silicon Valley 2013. Hosted and led by the industry’s top experts, Cloud Connect delivers the latest business, technology and cloud regulatory insights.
