Cloud computing has the potential to be the biggest change to the technology industry since the emergence of the World Wide Web.

By moving applications and storage from users’ desktops to remote servers on the Internet, and by making it possible for corporate data centres to be outsourced anywhere in the world, cloud computing will create demand for a range of new services and will shake up the structure of the existing industry – ranging from data centres to software providers, from backbone players and ISPs to the corporate IT function.

The coming changes also have profound consequences for individuals and governments, by raising contentious issues about privacy and security, and about government regulation and international competition.

PoweredByCloud 2008 will be the first in a series of conferences around the world launched by BroadGroup to give industry leaders the opportunity to debate the coming changes, position their organizations to take advantage of them, and network with clients and providers in this fast-moving space.
