Speaker: Michel Feaster, VP of Products, Apptio

Description: Through 2012, Gartner predicts IT organizations will spend more money on private cloud computing investments than on offerings from public cloud providers. Before implementing a private cloud, IT must have the systems in place to adequately manage the cost, quality and value of IT services. Without proper management/chargeback in place, finding the TCO of private clouds is impossible. This session will highlight new methods for understanding cloud costs and show attendees how to build an airtight business case for cloud computing.
