Industry Leaders Paint Rosy Outlook for Cloud Computing Market

DALLAS, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Astadia, the leader in Cloud Computing consulting, and salesforce.com's leading system integrator, initiated its first in a series of events focused on educating business leaders on the benefits of Cloud Computing and Software-as-a-Service.

Astadia began its tour in Dallas, Texas, where industry leaders converged on April 9 to learn how Cloud Computing based solutions deliver tangible results for their business. During the keynote speech, followed by panel discussions and breakout sessions, participants identified business opportunities, Cloud solutions, expected returns, and development cycles.

Mike Lingo, CTO of Astadia, delivered the keynote, "Transforming the enterprise with SaaS/Cloud Computing." "Both applications and platforms are rapidly migrating to the cloud," Mr. Lingo explained. "This application and delivery environment is more secure, less expensive, and faster to market than traditional application development. Business applications that take 4 to 5 months in a traditional delivery environment are now completed in 4 to 5 weeks. The result is the ability to respond to business change at speeds unimaginable in any other environment."

The event, known as "Connecting the Clouds 2009," will also be held in Washington, D.C., on April 21, Atlanta on May 19, and New York City on September 16.

Strong response from attendees and customer success stories presented by participating vendors indicate the Cloud Computing/SaaS market is mature, proven, and widely adopted in enterprise environments. The event, hosted by Astadia, included interactive breakout sessions with nine other leaders in the Cloud/SaaS space including Google, Salesforce.com, BigMachines, Xactly, Kadient, SalesGlobe, PingIdentity, Cast Iron, and Mimiran.
