Preparing for the Post-IaaS Phase of Cloud Adoption Summit Taking Place in Austin, Texas

The Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) is pleased to announce the summit, “Preparing for the Post-IaaS Phase of Cloud Adoption,” which it will host at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol in Austin, Texas on Thursday, September 18.

As Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) adoption has entered the mainstream, technologies and services that build upon it – specifically Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) in its many and varied forms – will become more of a focal point for cloud consumers, and will be more disruptive to the traditional IT organization and business processes.

The summit will offer customer and industry perspectives with talks focusing on the impact PaaS has had on business transformation; what DevOps means for the average business; and how to transform organizations for the “Cloud First” era. The keynote address, “Navigating the Next Wave of Cloud Transformation” will be delivered by Dr. Donald F. Ferguson, Software CTO, VP and Senior Fellow, Dell. The panel of key industry players will also discuss current and future PaaS trends.

“At CSCC’s Cloud Standards Symposium in Boston this past June, a panel of members agreed that PaaS is the future of cloud computing,” said Dr. Craig Lowery, Executive Director and Sr. Distinguished Engineer, Cloud, Software CTO Group, Dell. “In Austin this September, we’ll dig further into current and future PaaS trends – not just the technology, but also the business transformation opportunities and challenges this next phase of cloud adoption brings. Anyone who is either considering or already employing cloud computing in their business will have the chance to learn and to be heard during this jam-packed interactive day.”

The registration fee for the full-day summit is $175 for CSCC members; $225 for nonmembers. To view the full agenda and register, visit www.cloudstandardscustomercouncil.org/austin-14.

The Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) is an OMG end-user advocacy group dedicated to accelerating cloud’s successful adoption and drilling down into the standards, security and interoperability issues surrounding the transition to the cloud. While not a standards organization, CSCC complements existing cloud standards efforts by establishing a core set of client-driven requirements that ensure cloud users will have the same freedom of choice, flexibility and openness they have with traditional IT environments. CSCC is open to all end-user organizations. For more information, visit www.cloud-council.org.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
