Once, IT was limited by the time it took to provision and deploy new infrastructure. With clouds, however, we can launch -- and decommission -- entire virtual data centers instantly. This accelerates the cycle time of IT. It's analogous to two other shifts in technology: agile software development methodologies, and the "devops" movement of self-scaling, self-healing architectures. We'll see how the fates of clouds, agile coding, and devops are intertwined, and what this means for IT professionals.
On Day Two of Enterprise Cloud Summit, we'll turn our eye outward to look at the many public cloud offerings that are levelling the IT playing field. Public cloud providers offer pay-as-you-go economics and tremendous flexibility; but they also create new security, portability, and performance concerns.
