Day: Friday
Room: Chautauqua/Canandaigua
Time: 10:45 - 11:30

With today’s changing landscape what is the future of IT and how will it transform business.  There is much talk about the cloud and how it can save on CAPex and OPex, so what is the cloud?  What does it do for my busiess?  How can I get to the cloud?  What do I do once I am in the cloud?  Companies today have many questions on how to leverage the cloud, what services should I look at the cloud to provide in order to fulfill business needs and requirements.  In this round-table we will discuss key features of the cloud such as; Software as a service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), Backup as a service (BaaS).  We will discuss how these services can be used and help you navigate through the word of “many clouds” and how to find the on-ramp of the cloud information super-highway.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
