Most people now agree that the cloud has become a core element of any enterprise’s technology strategy. Indeed, in the past few years we have seen the conversation around cloud adoption move from “if” to “when” and “how.” It is, in short, a fact of life. Nevertheless, it remains one of the most disruptive changes in computing in years, and it is worth reviewing what makes the cloud so compelling to enterprise IT. During this session, we will go over different cloud trends (Private, IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, Hybrid) and how each of the large cloud providers planning to capture the cloud market. Furthermore, we will talk a tour of Azure and how you could quickly take a concept to code, and from there to an enterprise grade product.
