We are happy to welcome welcome Detlef Straeten as the next speaker within the KSRI Speaker Series. Cloud Adoption 2011 - Service Oriented Infrastructures and Platforms - Lessons on industrialization and consumerization of IT Abstract: Cloud Computing seems to get much attention today. It is positioned as a solution to many of the challenges we saw of consuming and providing IT in the past. But many questions remain: What in Cloud concepts is different so that we can anticipate broad success this time? What do companies do in adopting clouds? Where are the challenges in transforming/migration/porting/maintaining existing IT? Change in technology and/or IT processes - how do they relate? Service orientation is key here... but do we try to boil-the- (IT) ocean yet again? This talk will give an overview and practical insights on what and how Cloud Computing is starting to be adopted in 2011 based on real client insights and first practical experiences from 110 world-wide client projects.
