)-- The Distributed Computing Industry Association (www.DCIA.info) and the Cloud Computing Association (www.cloudcomputingassn.org) today announced the first wave of speakers to participate at CLOUD COMPUTING WEST 2012 (CCW:2012), their inaugural strategic business summit taking place November 8th-9th in Santa Monica, CA.
“We’re thrilled that our opening plenary session speakers include keynoter Geng Lin, CTO of the Networking Business at Dell; along with panelists Michelle Munson, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of Aspera; William Whelpley, Manager, Cloud Services at IBM Global Services; and Robert Stevenson, Chief Business Officer and EVP of Strategy at Gaikai,” said DCIA CEO Marty Lafferty.
Lin will address: How are cloud-based solutions in the entertainment sector evolving? How do these and related developments impact broadband network infrastructure? And how should investments in this space be evaluated? Munson, Whelpley, and Stevenson will extend this discussion in greater detail.
CCW: 2012 will feature more than ninety speakers in three co-located conferences focusing on the impact of cloud-based solutions in the industry’s fastest-moving and most strategically important areas: entertainment, broadband, and venture financing.
“Along with an outstanding speaking faculty for our first joint effort with the DCIA, we are also very pleased with the level of participation among exhibitors and sponsors for CCW:2012. This promises to be an enormously valuable and stimulating experience for attendees,” added CCA Executive Director Don Buford.
