Wardley to speak on the good, the bad and the ugly of cloud computing

Simon Wardley of Canonical will be presenting at SYS-CON's 2nd International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in New York City this coming March 30-April 1, 2009.

In this session, Wardley will first introduce the main concepts of commoditization and innovation and why the IT industry is shifting from a product to a service-based economy. He will then use these ideas to explore the benefits and downsides to cloud computing. Wardley will examine many of the claims surrounding the cloud from the acceleration of innovation to being more green, why you have little choice but to adopt and why open source is essential for its future...and discuss specific plans to bring freedom into the cloud.

Cloud Computing Is Swelling Into an Estimated $36BN Market
The Cloud Computing conference theme this March is "The Delivery of IT Resources as Services" - with 100+ breakout sessions by leading industry CEOs and CTOs whose companies already recognize that what today's companies need above all is to be able to build infrastructures that can scale up or down at a moment's notice.

Over the next five years, IDC expects spending on IT cloud services to grow almost threefold, reaching $42 billion by 2012 and accounting for some 9% of total software sales. More importantly, spending on cloud computing will accelerate throughout the forecast period, capturing 25% of IT spending growth in 2012 and nearly a third of growth the following year.

Cloud computing helps IT cut infrastructure costs while adding new features and services to grow core businesses. Clouds can help grow margins as costs are cut back but service offerings are expanded.
