structure-logo-for-postsIn the last year, cloud computing has moved from being a great idea to a great growth industry. Deploying cloud computing affects operations, organizational behavior and much more. Every problem is an opportunity for a clever provider somewhere.

One of our most important panels at Structure 09 will look at how enterprises are taking their first steps towards cloud computing by using existing internal infrastructure in a cloud-like manner. George Gilbert, a leading industry analyst, will helm the panel of practitioners and vendors. Here is a link to the panel: http://events.gigaom.com/structure/09/schedule/

We’d like to to know what question you would ask if you were the moderator, and to whom? We will give two passes, valued at over $1,000, for the person who offers up the best question — and we’ll make sure your question gets asked.

Please send your question with the panel title as the subject line, to questions09@gigaom.com. You have 7 calendar days from this post to enter and winners will be notified directly. Good Luck!

Some of that has to be brought forward, and more of it has to interoperate with the infrastructure and applications build in the private cloud. Some level of compatibility with what’s come before in the enterprise, starting with the management tools, is likely. Those tools, however, will have to manage more than just Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Ultimately, management tools will also have to measure, monitor and remediate application service problems in a highly automated fashion in order to achieve the industry’s price/performance improvements.
