In this fast-moving Lunchtime Power Panel at the 11th International Cloud Expo, chaired by Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan, industry-leading Execs & VPs of Technology will discuss such topics as:
- Which of the recent big acquisitions within the Cloud and/or Big Data space have most grabbed your attention as a sign of things to come?
- In its recent "Sizing the Cloud" report Forrester Research said it expects the global cloud computing market to reach $241BN in 2020 compared to $40.7BN in 2010 - is that kind of rapid growth trajectory being reflected in your own company? Is the Forrester number too large...or maybe not large enough!?
- What synergies are there between cloud computing and the Enterprise IT trend toward mobility?
- Big Data has existed since the early days of computing; why, then, do you think there is such an industry buzz around it right now?
- Do you think Big Data will only ever be used for analytical purposes, or do you envisage that it will actually enable new products?
