Cloud computing represents a tectonic shift of the role IT plays in business decision making. However, like any disruptive technology changes in the past, cloud computing brings as many opportunities as uncertainties. Who are the players? Which ones have taken the leap, and what have they learned so far? What are the latest cloud computing trends and pitfalls?

Join us on September 22, 2010 as MITEF NW kicks off the season with its first Enterprise Forum event – Piercing the Clouds: Emerging Opportunities in Cloud Computing. Our dynamic panel of industry experts, senior executives, and entrepreneurial heavyweights will share their experiences, perspectives and outlooks on this hot technology topic, including:

  • Cloud computing – Hype or here to stay?
  • The Use Cases: What Is Proven, What Is New?
  • The bottom line – Who is making money on the cloud?
  • Getting burned – Perils and pitfalls of being a cloud pioneer.
