SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud Connect, produced by UBM Tech, will present Cloud Connect Summit alongside Interop New York this fall, broadening the conference's cloud content offering. As a full conference, Cloud Connect Summit will focus on how enterprises can leverage the cloud's abundance of resources and applications to outmaneuver, out-innovate, and outpace the competition. The Cloud Connect Summit and expo will take place at the Javits Convention Center in New York on October 1 and 2, after two full days of cloud-focused workshops on September 29 and 30.

No longer an emerging technology, cloud is a critical enterprise tool that should be at the heart of every IT strategy. IT buyers across all industries are increasing cloud-related spending, but still face challenges deciding which cloud architecture and platform is best suited for their business. Through analysis and comparison of the leading cloud stacks and how they're progressing, Cloud Connect Summit's new programming at Interop New York will help attendees weigh their options.
"We are thrilled to bring Cloud Connect Summit to Interop New York this year. The Summit will explore how the Cloud fundamentally changes enterprise computing and the roles of CIOs and IT leaders," said Interop General Manager Jennifer Jessup. "IT-as-a-Service and close collaboration with business units is now a mandate, not an option."
Cloud Connect Summit will host a thought-provoking keynote address from EVP and Chief Technology Officer of Warner Music Group, Jonathan Murray. He recently introduced the concept of the "Composable Enterprise" to describe the radical new approach to transforming business through the use of a new generation of cloud-based platform architectures. He attests that the "Composable Enterprise" approach is the only way to close the gap between business demand and IT's ability to deliver. He'll present from the Cloud Connect Summit room on Wednesday, October 1.
Cloud Connect will soon unveil a full keynote and conference program for the two-day Summit on Wednesday and Thursday of Interop New York. On these days, the Interop Expo will be open, featuring a Cloud Connect Zone that will showcase startup and established cloud companies. Prior to the Summit and Expo, Cloud Connect will also present five in-depth cloud workshops on Monday and Tuesday.
