Accelerating Time to Market with Next Generation Cloud Platforms by Michael McCarthy, VP of IBM – Cloud Slam 2012 Keynote
Business leaders are faced with enormous pressure to accelerate time to market for new products and services while controlling costs. Success requires rapid access to IT infrastructure, storage, and virtual server environments. IT resource provisioning should be dynamic and self service for application development teams. Platforms are required that enable organizations to rapidly develop, deploy, manage and integrate enterprise applications for their own use or delivery as SaaS. These platforms should support the migration of traditional and higher availability applications to meet user demand and control costs. Come join Mike McCarthy, IBM Vice President of Cloud Computing Global Technology Services, to learn about the next generation cloud platforms and how this technology is helping shape the way companies approach new business development.
