Competition is nothing new to the technology arena - it's what breeds innovation and defines new trends. When new ideas reach the point of becoming disruptive, competition heats up to the point of a tech war, which is where cloud computing has taken the industry, with vendors large and small making a play in the clouds, and businesses of all sizes evaluating their options in the cloud.

The idea that any computing and communications resources will be delivered on an 'as-a-Service' basis from server farms physically located anywhere in the world represents a powerful shift in computing theory. Despite the hype, media attention, and adoption to date, the cloud is still a relatively new technology with many questions still to be answered. Still, the concept of moving sensitive business information and applications into an off-premises environment managed by a third party is profoundly changing how businesses think about, purchase, and manage technology.

What does that change mean? How will providers and users alike handle concerns over privacy and security? Which cloud model will dominate the others? Where does open source fit into the picture? Does cloud mean the end of local computing completely? TMC's Editorial Director Erik Linask will lead a panel of cloud computing leaders to answer these questions and find out what technologies will dominate the cloud landscape, what the next major shift will be, and who will emerge victorious as vendors large and small make a play in the cloud.

'A shift to the cloud seems inevitable, yet many questions remain about the security and privacy of businesses moving sensitive information to a cloud environment,' said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and ITEXPO conference chairman. 'This session addresses one of the great ongoing debates in the industry: What's next for the cloud? We greatly look forward to this session on opening day.'
