ISLANDIA, N.Y., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ — As more organizations implement cloud computing solutions to become more nimble and better serve the needs of business users, IT leaders are in need of pragmatic advice about implementation best practices. Experts from CA Technologies will be sharing their insights to help organizations get the most out of their cloud computing initiatives at several key IT industry events in September and October.
Managed service providers (MSPs) looking to leverage the cloud to more quickly roll out new services to their customers can tap into a significant growth opportunity with cloud computing . Adam Famularo, general manager of the Cloud customer solutions unit at CA Technologies, will deliver a keynote outlining strategies to help MSPs take advantage of this “land-grab” opportunity at MSPWorld 2010, co-located with ITEXPO in Los Angeles on October 4, 2010.
“Cloud computing represents a dramatic shift in the way organizations and service providers are building, managing and consuming IT services,” said Famularo. “Many IT departments see the potential of cloud computing and are now working to make sense of their options – public, private and hybrid clouds. We are focused on helping organizations navigate the many choices available based on their needs, risks and desired outcomes. We deeply understand the opportunities and challenges associated with cloud computing and we’re eager to share our knowledge and lessons learned to help IT pros better manage their dynamic IT service supply chains.”
