RTP-AITP Chapter Meeting – The Great Cloud Debate

Meeting sponsored by:


September 12


Public, Private, or Hybrid? On-premesis or off? SaaS, IaaS, or Paas? Self-managed or contract?  There are a variety of options and business challenges to evaluate before making decisions on cloud strategy and implementation.

Join us for our monthly meeting in September discussing various cloud based solutions.  Instead of our normal panel discussion, we are mixing things up a bit with a feisty debate between industry experts and evangelists with different views and perspectives. Expect crowd participation and maybe a few storm clouds!
