Six years after we started explaining how cloud computing would revolutionize the way IT services were provided and change the economics of starting a web company, we practically take the cloud for granted. The debate is shifting to how companies, developers and service providers can best position themselves for a world in which more and more computing services are being delivered remotely, and that’s just part of what we plan to cover Wednesday and Thursday at Structure 2013.
GigaOM’s flagship event and (in my somewhat biased opinion) the best enterprise-computing conference on the planet will feature several high-profile executives of this world (Amazon’s Werner Vogels, VMWare CEO Pat Gelsinger, and Microsoft’s Satya Nadella) as well as startups hoping to hand those bigger companies their lunch in a few years. We’ll highlight all our coverage from UCSF-Mission Bay in this post, so make sure to check back.
A livestream of the event can be found here. You can also check out the discussion on Twitter by following @gigaom and using the hashtag #structureconf. Hope to see you all there.
