SIIA, OpSource to Host All About the Cloud Conference
Largest cloud industry event to advance the ongoing evolution of computing
SANTA CLARA, Calif., and WASHINGTON, Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, in partnership with OpSource, Inc., the leader in enterprise cloud and managed hosting, will hold its annual All About the Cloud conference May 23-26 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Now in its 6th year, the conference will bring together software and cloud computing industry executives to consider the business opportunities and challenges in the continually evolving cloud computing market.
Cloud computing is revolutionizing the way software is developed, consumed and delivered. The All About the Cloud conference bridges the gap between the traditional software industry and the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) industries.
"This conference was a huge success last year," said Rhianna Collier, Director of the SIIA Software Division. "With opportunities in cloud computing rapidly growing, we are excited about the prospects for an excellent lineup of speakers and sessions, as well as a high level of participation from across the software industry."
The conference provides independent software vendors (ISVs), hardware vendors, systems integrators and cloud computing companies with an opportunity to network with industry leaders and learn about doing business in the cloud: security, mobile, government and monetization.
All About the Cloud will feature sessions that focus on an array of cloud business topics:
- Securing the Cloud
- Business in the Cloud
- Platforms and Infrastructure
- Social Cloud
- Integrating in the Cloud
- Mobile Cloud
- Government Cloud
- Monetizing Cloud
"As software vendors, large enterprises and governments look to leverage the cloud for efficiency or to drive new revenue streams, and industry collaboration is critical," said Keao Caindec, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer, OpSource. "All About the Cloud is the one conference that brings together both software and cloud computing leaders in one place to challenge traditional models, recognize true innovation and move our IT industry forward."
