The event will take place in Boston on Thursday, October 27 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Park Plaza Hotel and Towers.

"The cloud promises faster, better service for internal and external users, but capturing return on cloud investments requires making smart choices about monetization," said Swartz. He added, "Companies need to plan carefully for agreements-based business models to avoid the risk of missed opportunities in the cloud."
WSTA's Boston seminar will address the practical aspects of making the right decisions about which cloud technologies to implement, how to deploy and optimize them, and what actions to take to ensure secure service delivery. Among the topics to be discussed at the day-long event are issues related to orchestration and governance, profiling applications and data, managing risk and ensuring compliance with industry standards.
