JOIN MICROSOFT AND DAVID CHAPPELL, TECHNOLOGY ANALYST AND AUTHOR, FOR EXCLUSIVE INSIGHTS ON THE ADOPTION OF ENTERPRISE CLOUD COMPUTING    
Public cloud platforms are entering the mainstream. If you’re an IT leader, you need to have a clear view of what this technology offers and how it will impact your organisation.

Join an invited group of IT leaders in exploring the path to the cloud. Led by cloud computing thought leader David Chappell, Principal of Chappell & Associates in San Francisco, California, this session will provide an independent perspective on the topic, using Microsoft’s Windows Azure as an example.

Public clouds represent the next big platform decision you have to make. The goal of this conversation is to help you make better choices about why, when, and how your organization should embrace this significant shift in enterprise computing.
