Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit Europe

Navigating the Perfect Storm

The IT model as we know it is being turned on its head as a 'perfect storm' of conditions - economic, technological and cultural - combine to disrupt the status quo from top to bottom. The Hosting and Cloud Transformation Summit will examine how stakeholders and professionals can take advantage of infrastructure and facilities, managed hosting and cloud, social enterprise and consumerization trends to ride this storm and navigate a course to success.
