The European Tech Tour Association will present its 2nd Cloud & Big Data Summit on November 21-22, 2012 with 100+ delegates and 25 presenting CEOs. The gala dinner will be held in conjunction with the Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2012.
The promise of Cloud Computing is to deliver both IT and SW in a more efficient, flexible and reliable way. Since the 80s, IT and SW have been sold in "boxes" and cloud computing is now distributed through a new channel: the communication networks. This fundamental transition is actually taking place right now and the industry's double digit growth is there to prove it.
As Cloud computing is becoming a de facto standard, we are collectively storing massive amount of data in the cloud. Companies are now trying to mine this immense source of information. Assuming everything is stored in the cloud, interesting questions arise.
Big data will enable businesses to put this massive amount of information to work. Interconnecting and analyzing all pieces of information collected by mankind offers limitless business potential. Time for re-imagination has come; in fact I would have a hard time finding a business sector that will remain untouched by this transformation.
