Recently Digital Saber Solutions attended the 4th UNC Charlotte’s College of Computing and Informatics Annual SaaS/Cloud Computing conference on Wednesday 4/25/12. The event was a great success for the University and provided knowledge transfer from excellent speakers to our Charlotte community.
Cloud Computing has changed computing from a product to a service. For Startups it makes it possible for them to compete against the large enterprises. For the large enterprises it turns infrastructure from a capital expense to an operating expense, thus streamlining overall operations. The benefits can be enormous but it was clear that it is important to plan and execute carefully!
As a Digital Saber Solutions employee I was able to engage in meaningful conversation about a topic (Cloud Computing) that is leading a large wave into the future! Listening to Chad Currier (PBH), Robert Deutsch (intel), Tom DiVittorio (Salesforce.com), Igor Jablokov (Yap, Inc.), Bill Jacaruso (Pervasive Software, Inc.) David Miller & Chris Tinsley (AvidXchange) & Ben Weiner (TIAA CREF) was the highlight to my day. These speakers gave real world experience about how they are using Cloud Computing on a daily basis to create efficiency for their organizations and clients.
It was amazing to see how Charlotte based startups have been purchased by companies as large, and well known, as Amazon! We all need to think and act creatively. Who knows; you or I could have the next great idea that will leave a legacy behind!
In closing, there were many great ideas presented and I look forward to attending next year to learn how Cloud Computing is evolving. Thank you UNCC for the great experience and knowledge! Keep up the great work!
