In its fifth year, GigaOM’s Structure will convene in San Francisco to bring together the leaders innovating, shaping and defining the ongoing evolution in the technology industry – cloud computing. The shift to the cloud isn’t just a change in the way IT is organized and delivered, but it will also become the impetus for a new way of building chips, servers, networking and the other building blocks of the computing industry.
As it remakes the computing world, it’s also enabling changes in businesses and business processes that will free up corporations and entrepreneurs from having to worry about computing if its not part of their core business.
Previous editions of GigaOM Structure have covered the leaders, technology and use cases for the companies at the root of the tectonic changes taking place. This year we will cover those again and look at the effects that the cloud is having on the way we work and do business around the word.
Structure is now accepting proposals from speakers and sponsors to deliver talks, propose topics and run workshops. All proposals will be reviewed by our team of journalists and analysts. Make sure you have a plan for attending, sponsoring or participation in place.
GigaOM Structure is committed to highlighting the most significant ideas, opportunities an technologies that power the rise of Cloud Computing. Topics under review include:
• Software Defined Networking
The Cloud is great, it is big and it is expansive. And it needs new networking technology to make the best of it.
• The Green Cloud
A cloud has no value if there is no-one around to use it. We have to protect the plant and the energy guzzling data center has to be greener.
• Emerging Chip / Hardware Architectures
The society of technology that powers the cloud needs to change now that we better understand how the cloud is used for compute and big data. We will bring you the best thinking in the space.
• Programmer Platform Evolution
Your massive investment in the cloud needs good ROI. Start by making sure that your developers are using platforms designed for the cloud.
• The Cloud On Capitol Hill
As the cloud has a growing reach in society so must the government provide oversight. We bring to the fore the people shaping cloud policy and legislation.
