SaaS and the cloud to be focus of data centre conference

SaaS and the cloud to be focus of data centre conference

The impact of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud computing is to be one of the chief items on the agenda at next year's 5th Annual Data Centres Europe conference.

Consulting company BroadGroup, which is hosting the event on April 22nd and 23rd, revealed that green initiatives and IT delivery strategies will also be on the agenda, along with the "most important" issue - enterprise outsourcing.

"Both our own surveys and those cited by industry players suggest that in Europe now, attention and focus is on enterprises and outsourcing to third party data centres," commented Nicola Hayes, vice-president of BroadGroup.

Angsuman Chakraborty of Sys-Con wrote this week that there are numerous factors favouring enterprise cloud computing over alternative hosting solutions, listing scalable delivery, improved security and cost effectiveness as three major plus points.

He suggested that cloud computing is "going places" and will begin to take off over the next few years.ADNFCR-1984-ID-18939061-ADNFCR
