IEEE GLOBECOM 2012
Global Communications Conference, Exhibition & Industry Forum
3-7 December 2012, Anaheim, California, US
A View from the IEEE Cloud Congress at GlobeCom 2012
Cloud computing offers great promise, especially to small- and medium-sized businesses that can't afford to develop their own cloud infrastructure. Key challenges remain in building out the ecosystem to support cloud computing on a broad scale that enables intercloud data transfer, security, and other key assurances. We caught up with industry experts Vint Cerf, Hossein Eslambolchi, Joe Weinman, and others at the IEEE GlobeCom conference in Anaheim in December 2012 to get their insights into the work that's still needed to facilitate the cloud ecosystem. Brought to you by the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative.
Cloud computing represents the next evolution in distributed computing and could prove to be a game-changing technology once some key elements such as intercloud interoperability and security are in place. Industry experts Vint Cerf, Hossein Eslambolchi, Joe Weinman, and many more share their views on the role of standards in enabling this expanded realm of possibility.

"There's no question that the cloud is real," states Joe Weinman, as enterprises are adopting it and moving their applications to it. Strategic thinkers who gave keynotes and served on panels at IEEE GlobeCom in December 2012 share their views on the big opportunities offered by the cloud.
"The Internet isn't over," as Vint Cerf puts it, and the pieces of the global -- and even interplanetary -- network that support us now are also setting the stage for evolutionary advances in the coming decade and beyond. Strategic thinkers who gave keynotes and served on panels at IEEE GlobeCom in December 2012 share their views on what comes next.
