Which "aaS" is Right for You?
When: Monday, November 1 from 5:30 - 6:15 p.m. PT
Speakers: Max Coburn & Margaret Dawson
About: Despite all the hype surrounding the cloud, key decision makers still struggle to find answers to simple questions like: "What is the cloud?" "How do I use it and when?" "What should I consider when evaluating cloud solutions, and how do I evaluate cloud vendors?" Plus, the cloud market is punctuated with an alphabet soup of acronyms, such as SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, DaaS and BaaS, with more aaSes introduced every day. This session goes beyond the hype, cloud fluff and acronyms to give real world examples and practical advice on when, how and why to move to the cloud.

At the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Congress, Ian Huynh, vice president of engineering at Hubspan, will partake in a panel discussion on 25 Cloud Management and Security Challenges.
