While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren't yet translating into a true "cloud" experience within the enterprise.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, will explore the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between what is available in the public cloud and the early private clouds? He will also introduce their approach to solving the problem - how do we get an enterprise to deploy a private cloud in minutes that can compete with any public cloud in terms of functionality, cost and ease-of-use?

Open Government Clouds

You wouldn't typically combine the words 'Government' and 'Innovation' in the same sentence, but actually it's the ideal way to highlight some of the most essential and exciting points about Cloud computing.

Google, Social and Enterprise Mobility

I would invite anyone in an IT department buried in demand for mobile apps to first take a look at Google Enterprise before trying to develop everything yourself.  There are many mobile capabilities already available in the Google world which are free to individuals and available free or on a subscription basis for companies.  Here are a few of them: Google Drive - Keep all your files, documents, spreadsheets, videos, photos, everything digital in a free secure cloud.  Access from any mobile or desktop device.http://youtu.be/wKJ9KzGQq0w Google+ - Strives to make sharing online, ...

Best Practices for DevOps Success By @JackieKahle | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Four Best Practices for DevOps Success Much of what is written about DevOps focuses on the development team and on making things faster. And the ops team is thinking, "Whoa, slow down! We need to ensure there's quality, so going fast with poor quality doesn't help." So dev and ops are immediately at odds with each other, because their goals are different. You want to center all teams around the common objective of having a predictable and reliable customer experience. That's just not a coding issue. There is a difference between quality of code and quality of experience, and wh... (more)
