Why Cloud Computing?

In a just a few year’s time, cloud computing has moved from the realm of novelty to what industry analyst call the major growth industry for the next decade. Companies of all sizes and types rely on this computing infrastructure to increase efficiency, scale more easily, and lower costs.

Private clouds can maximize the usage of infrastructure and slash the time it takes to test and deploy new applications. Public clouds are tearing down barriers to entry across industries, and making massive, million-user, real-time services possible.

But the aging applications on which enterprises are built won’t go gently into the cloud. They’ll need to be torn apart and rebuilt, architected for a world in which components are assumed to fail and workloads can spike and shrink in an instant.

At Cloud Connect Chicago 2012, we’ll look at how to transform many of our internal applications—and launch new ones—rewriting them to take advantage of the cloud opportunity. In the process, we’ll be rewriting the rules of our businesses, and ultimately, the industries in which we compete.
