I was recently privileged to be invited to speak at the excellent Cloud Expo 2013 Silicon Valley, to reprise my presentation in New York at the 2013 Cloud Expo East, and to speak on a panel session with some amazing cloud experts.
You can read more about the many happenings at the event in my recent post, ‘Fantastic Cloud Expo West … Again!’.
I was subsequently invited to submit a paper on my presentation topic, ‘Harnessing APIs to Deliver Competitive Applications in the ‘Cloud of Clouds’ to Cloud Computing Journal:

This is great news because it shows that IT continues to be a key stakeholder in delivering business service innovation. However, it also means that IT must deliver new innovation despite flat budgets, while maintaining existing services that grow more complex every day.
