Cloud Computing World Forum Highlights Vital Emerging Market

Mumbai, India (PressExposure) August 03, 2011 -- According to a study by Zinnov Management Consulting, the Cloud Computing industry in India is said to currently be worth around $400 million, but is predicted to reach a hefty $4.5 billion by 2015.

The rapid adoption of this new technology correlates with a boom in the Indian SME sector, which is quickly taking to cloud-based services due to the minimal operational costs involved. The technology enables SMEs to make smaller, manageable 'pay-per-use' payments rather than large up-front capital investments.

With such a huge increase in adoption on the horizon, the Cloud Computing World Forum India will help distil the myths about this new technology and provide delegates with a clear understanding of how best to adopt it.

The agenda is broken down into the ABC of Cloud Computing, focusing on Approach, Build and Connect - three core topic areas. Key speakers confirmed for this event include:
