Cloud computing is the future of our industry - it’s where we’re all going. But why is this true? Who are the major vendors in cloud computing today, and what are their strategies? In this presentation, David Chappell will provide an independent perspective on these topics, with a focus on public cloud platforms. Among other things, he’ll give a high-level view of how the leaders in this market compare, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and others. The goal is to help you think about the big picture of how cloud computing is changing the IT industry.
