Gravitant® today announced that its Chairman and CEO, Mohammed Farooq, will present a thought leadership session on “Get the Most Out of Your Cloud Investments” at the 2013 CIO Cloud Summit on December 10 at 4 p.m. in Scottsdale, AZ.
Cloud computing has much promise and allure but its adoption can be fraught with pitfalls if not done right: higher costs, more risk, and failed projects. In his thought leadership session, Mohammed will present a smarter path to cloud computing based on lessons learned from actual customer case studies. He will share how a cloud brokerage and management platform can help enterprises reduce cloud risk while increasing agility and lowering cloud costs.
Gravitant makes IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) a reality for enterprises of all sizes with cloudMatrix, the most effective and production-hardened Cloud Services Brokerage and Management Platform in the market. cloudMatrix has received multiple industry recognition, including the 2013 Gartner Cool Vendor recognition, the 2013 American Technology Association Award, and inclusion in Infoworld’s Top 10 Tools to Avoid Cloud Lock-in.
