Hosting and Cloud Transformation Summit North America — October 6-8, 2014

451 Research is proud to be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of The Hosting + Cloud Transformation Summit in 2014!

This Year's Event Theme - The Cloud: Whose Market is it?

Hosting + Cloud Transformation Summit 2014 will focus on what and whom is driving the cloud market as it enters the next stage of maturity. How is enterprise demand dictating the direction the market is heading and how are cloud providers reacting as they monetize their cloud investments? The cloud landscape continues to rapidly evolve as enterprise moves from the early adoption stage and continues its journey to the cloud. Fueled by acquisitions and investments in innovation, service providers have repositioned themselves to compete by their own rules. So whose market is this?
