Speakers Announced for The 451 Group 7th Annual Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit - North America

NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--

The 451 Group, the leading technology-industry analyst and data company focused on the business of enterprise IT innovation, is pleased to announce its 7th annual Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit - North America (HCTS-NA). HCTS-NA will take place at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, NV from Sunday, September 25 through Tuesday, September 27.

For the past six years, HCTS-NA has served as a venue for the assembly of a predominantly C-level and senior executive audience from across all industry sectors, including, but not limited to: cloud computing, hosting, colocation, telecommunications, content-delivery networks, technology vendors, investment banking, private equity, and enterprises from the media, finance, telecom, gaming and retail sectors. Attendees at this year's Summit will receive an increased return on their investment as analysts and experts from all five divisions of The 451 Group (451 Research, Tier1 Research, Uptime Institute, ChangeWave Research and TheInfoPro) will be contributing and participating in the program as well as the one-on-one analyst sessions that are offered to attendees throughout the Summit. "This is a tremendous opportunity for the integrated divisions of The 451 Group (News - Alert) to bring to bear our shared knowledge and expertise of the sector to truly benefit HCTS-NA attendees as we discuss the implications of the disruptive technological advancements that are reshaping the future of the entire Internet infrastructure sector," said Martin McCarthy, CEO of The 451 Group.

HCTS-NA attendees can look forward to hearing featured commentary from David Pogue, New York Times technology columnist and CBS News correspondent, as well as industry leader Joe Weinman, Worldwide Lead, Communications, Media and Entertainment Industry Solutions at HP, who will present on his theory of 'Cloudonomics' - how the cloud creates value and enables sustainable strategic competitive advantage. Antonio Piraino, Tier1 Research Vice President, will kick off the Summit program with his highly anticipated keynote on Monday, September 26, entitled, 'Moving From the Playground to Enterprise Production.' Key industry topics will also be discussed during the following panels: 'Is it the Cloud Playground or Players That Are Moving?'; 'Hosting 3.0 or Cloud 2.0?'; 'Are Just-in-Time Datacenters the Way to Match the Cloud?'; 'Insecurity in the Cloud; How to Get Bought! (and Other Financial Frolicking…)'; 'Creating the Enterprise - Marketecture Play or Viable Solution?'; and 'Who Moved My IT Infrastructure?'

"We've reached a pivotal point of transformation in the industry, and it's critical that the analysts and experts of The 451 Group continue to deliver the timely and insightful forward-looking analysis that the sector has come to trust and depend on," said Doug Toombs, HCTS-NA Conference Chair. "Year after year, HCTS-NA consistently delivers just the right mix of analysis and networking to ensure that the collective Internet infrastructure sector is truly prepared for what lies ahead."

This year's Summit will be sponsored by some of the largest and most innovative and influential companies in the industry, including: Microsoft, DH Capital, Digital Realty Trust, Hexagrid, Abiquo, AlertLogic, Asigra, CloudSoft, eZ Systems, Media Venture Partners, Mezeo, Nimsoft (News - Alert), OnApp, Schneider Electric, StillSecure, ViaWest, CloudSigma, Data Sales Company, FiberZone, HP, Jones Lang LaSalle, Latisys, Neustar, Quality Technology Services (QTS), Signal Hill, Stifel Nicolaus (News - Alert) Weisel, Stream Data Centers, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, WorldHostingDays (WHD) and Zenoss.

Registration for HCTS-NA is now open, and additional information can be obtained from the event website: HCTS-NA is normally a sellout event, and the sale of Summit passes has been far outpacing that of any year prior.
