Friday, December 4, 2009


Presentation at the 2009 EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) Symposium, December 4, 2009, in Carlsbad, California, by Bernard Golden, CEO of HyperStratus.

Platform shifts benefit some and threaten others, so how can IT organizations get ahead of the cloud computing tsunami and avoid being swept away? This presentation focuses on key challenges that cloud computing presents and offers concrete steps for IT organizations to successfully achieve the benefits of cloud computing.
