The Cloud in Context

Location: Independence Ballroom BC Level:

The cloud will enable a proliferation of services anchored around individual profiles, aware of context and location, and tailored to particular areas of experience as well as vertical industries. Daniels will outline the implications this shift will have for governments, and how organizations can move to capitalize on it.
