Last week I gave a keynote presentation at the CloudConnect conference in Santa Clara. The title of the presentation was: "Surprise! Your Enterprise is Already Using the Public Cloud."
Regular readers of this blog (or those who work with me) know I go on about this a lot: In the enterprise, cloud computing services (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) are being adopted bottom-up. In other words, by the rank & file (developers, IT admins, business folk) and not top-down with a big strategic decision by the CIO.
That's what the keynote was about and the title was addressing the CIO, who is the last to know about cloud computing adoption within his or her organization.
If you're interested in this topic you can watch the video of the presentation (you need to scroll down to get to it) on the CloudConnect web site.
You can also read this very good summary of my talk by Rich Miller on Data Center Knowledge.
UPDATE [March 1, 2012]: Charles Babcock at Information Week wrote a nice piece about CloudConnect, including coverage of my keynote: 4 Cloud Computing Pain Points That Still Hurt.
