Cloud Revolution: Accelerating Business through Secure Cloud Adoption
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a revolution as “a sudden, radical, or complete change” or “a changeover in use or preference especially in technology.”
The enterprise move to the cloud has not have been sudden or radical. IT Operations teams in medium to large organizations don’t act radically nor are they known to like sudden change. The paradigm shift occurring right now however is quite dramatic. As Marc Benioff, Founder, CEO and Chairman of Salesforce stated, “If someone asks me what cloud computing is, I try not to get bogged down with definitions. I tell them that, simply put, cloud computing is a better way to run your business.”
Adoption is increasing across the board. Startups and small companies embrace the cloud to level the playing field and achieve more with limited capital. Medium and large organizations are realizing the financial and productivity benefits driving them to make the leap. Traditionally sensitive or mission critical functions across industries are moving workloads and data to the cloud to focus on their core strengths and better compete.
Not so fast! What about security? How can you meet compliance requirements? What about loss of control? By attending the CSA Boston Chapter Summit you’ll learn how workloads in “the cloud” can be as or even more secure than whatever traditionally lived comfortably behind the perimeter. After all, the perimeter isn’t what it used to be with the explosion of mobile and interconnected services, some of which are cloud-based. This forum will help attendees envision ways to accelerate their businesses while at the same time ensuring protection of what matters most to them. Join us and succeed.
