How do you accurately budget your IT operating costs in the new cloud computing world? DrJames Mitchell, CEO and Founder of Strategic Blue will discuss how cloud computing is already being traded like a commodity, allowing users to lock in price scenarios, using case studies illustrating the role of a cloud broker-dealer. Dr Mitchell will describe how the cloud futures market will evolve from its primitive form today, to become an efficient traded market, analogous in part to electricity, and in part to coal.
