Guildford, Surrey, United Kingdom – 15 June 2010, Memset, award-winning hosting and cloud computing provider, has today announced their sponsorship of Intellect's Cloud Computing Roadmap conference on Tuesday 5th October 2010.
The one day event being held in London is aimed at answering questions delegates have about the challenges and opportunities presented to the IT industry, especially software vendors, by cloud, and what the future holds.
Speakers include several of Britain's foremost thought leaders in this field; Chris Chant, Programme Director G Cloud, Cabinet Office; Glenn Fitzgerald, Chief Technologist, Fujitsu; Ian Osborne, Director, Grid Computing Now! KTN; William Fellows,The 451 Group; Iain Gavin, Amazon; Dr. Richard Sykes, Independent Advisor and Steve Garnett, CEO, Salesforce.com. Kate Craig-Wood, Memset's CEO, will also be speaking, giving a practical and accessible guide to the different types of cloud computing including her own insights from 8 years in the virtual machine business.
"I'm delighted to see that this conference is already attracting some of the best minds across the industry, since cloud really is important. Gartner recently forecast that the UK will supply 29% of a projected $149bn global cloud services market by 2014. If correct, that is roughly £28.4bn, or approaching 2% of UK GDP, meaning cloud services are likely to be an important contributor to our economic growth", said Craig-Wood.
"I hope that by supporting this conference we help our fellow IT companies get their slice of the burgeoning cloud computing market and ensure Britain emerges as a leader in this space.", she concluded.
