SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 27, 2014) - GoGrid, the leader in Open Data Services (ODS), is pleased to announce that its CEO, John Keagy, will speak about the next generation of cloud and Big Data technologies at an upcoming conference in London. The moderated discussion, "Leadership Perspective: Cloud & Big Data -- How Leading Service Providers Are Succeeding," will take place April 1 at the Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit Europe organized by 451 Research Group.

"The next generation of Big Data companies are 'polyglot' technology users that leverage multiple clouds and multiple systems to deliver their products," said GoGrid CEO John Keagy. "They want the flexibility to choose from a diverse ecosystem of Big Data technologies plus frictionless setup, and providers need to deliver it all on the most high-performance infrastructure available."

The discussion will explore the opportunities leading service providers have in the cloud and Big Data marketplace. John Keagy will join Peter Stevenson, CEO of leading managed and cloud provider Latisys, to discuss their companies' strategies in this rapidly evolving space and the key to targeting and delivering value to customers.
