Agenda 2015

More than 50 speakers will explain you the advantages Cloud Computing & Datacenters and the way your organization should make the transfer to it.

We plan eight tracks:

  • Advantages and added value of datacenters & cloud
  • How can I migration to the cloud and what are potential traps?
  • Cloud: for which applications?
  • The future of specialized clouds
  • The cloud juridical: safety, privacy and liability
  • Hybrid-cloud solutions and private/public clouds
  • Best practices
  • The services of my datacenter and cloud supplier

During the event, we will make the difference between interventions that focus on in-depth content (suggestion for visotors who are already familiar with the cloud, professionals/experts) and interventions that will explain you everything from A to Z about how to move to the cloud (suggestion for visitors that want to make their first steps towards the cloud).
