Enterprise adoption of cloud computing was the focus of Google Atmosphere, an event for CIOs held in London on Oct. 22. The presentations and panels featured some of the leading cloud computing technologies and industry watchers, along with several presentations from Google about its cloud products and roadmap. "The cloud is no longer an 'if' but a 'when' and the when is actually now," said Matthew Glotzbach, Google's product manager for enterprise apps. Google has posted videos of many of the sessions on YouTube. Here are some of the notable speakers:
- Era of the Cloud: Nicholas Carr
- Cloud Capability: Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon
- Cloud Futures: Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com
- Making Waves: Google Apps & Cloud Innovation (Nelson Mattos and Matthew Glotzbach)
Here's a video of one of the panels at Atmosphere, featuring a discussion with Vogels, Nicholas Carr, Paul Daugherty (Chief Technology Architect, Accenture) and Carsten Sorensen of LSE, moderated by journalist Guy Clapperton. This video runs about 24 minutes.
