Cloud as a Growth Engine for a Smarter Enterprise

Through the IBM Institute for Business Value study, IBM has learned for the second year in a row that CEOs have identified ‘technology’ as the most important external force impacting their organizations. In fact, those that are effectively applying disruptive technologies like cloud computing, are outmaneuvering their competitors, delivering new products and services to market more quickly, driving new economics, and transforming entire industries and business models in the process. Determining the correct strategy and mix of cloud delivery models has become a strategic imperative. IBM has helped thousands of clients realize the transformational benefits of cloud, providing the expertise, cloud technologies and choice of delivery models, including NEW SaaS and IaaS technologies with SoftLayer, needed to effectively design, deliver, and consume cloud services that produce better business outcomes. Join this general session to understand how IBM can help you Think it. Build it. Tap into it.
