This fast-moving "CEO Power Panel" at the 11th International Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan features industry thought leaders and will discuss the business-related issues that are currently front of mind with chief executives of today's foremost Cloud and Big Data based companies.
Topics include what are the commercial and fiscal benefits of building a business on the cloud? What's the business potential of real-time Big Data analytics?

What industry vertical is least exploited as yet, by Cloud players?
