Cloud computing is a complex, rapidly evolving phenomenon with long-term implications not only for IT but for the business as a whole. CIOs will be expected to guide their enterprises, helping them seize the right opportunities and avoid costly mistakes. This session will explore three key issues related to cloud computing: What is it, and how does it differ from other styles of computing? What are its risks and challenges, and what are the ideal targets and best practices for using it? What long-term impact will it have on the market and vendors?
