Your IT organization needs to support creativity and enable disruption through developing new products more quickly, and cutting free of old rules and rethinking business models. Cloud should be the answer... but in many cases it's only the answer for certain types of workloads and applications due to performance, dependency, management and security challenges.
The cloud needs be so much more than it currently is for the next great wave of innovation to take off - we need a fundamentally better cloud.
In his General Session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Jim Anthony, VP of Sales Engineering at Verizon Terremark, will discuss the current challenges in cloud computing, the features needed in future cloud services, and Verizon's next-generation platform that will deliver a new level of simplicity and performance with a new approach designed to make the cloud fast, predictable and cost-effective.
Jim Anthony is Vice President of Sales Engineering at Verizon Terremark, where he leads a global team of highly technical System Architects, Security Specialists and Custom Engineers. His team is responsible for all configurations, solutions and proposals generated by the Company's direct sales team and channel partners.
