How to Avoid the "Zero Value" Cloud

OutSystems Founding Member Rodrigo Coutinho at Cloud Expo

"The Cloud has zero or little value for your business without your apps," says Rodrigo Coutinho, a member of the OutSystems founders team. "Despite the hype around the Cloud, adoption has been slow, and many IT departments seem to only use the Cloud for those applications that aren't core to the business."

Why is that? In his presentation at Cloud Expo in New York, Rodrigo promises to answer this question "and at the same time outline a strategy that will enable you to safely move your apps to the Cloud," he says. "I'll also walk through a scenario to apply this strategy, and demonstrate how the right Cloud-ready development platform can streamline the process." His session will be held at 3:15pm, Wednesday, June 8.
