Cloud Computing and "The New Normal"

Sam Gross from Unisys to Present at Cloud Expo in New York

Opening Keynote at Cloud Expo

Time to consider the old status quo, says Sam Gross, VP of Global IT Outsourcing Solutions at Unisys. Gross will be presenting a session on Cloud Computing and "The New Normal" at Cloud Expo, in which he will disucss Cloud and how it will create "a new generation of workers that expect anytime, anywhere access to corporate data."

"As much as information technology has changed in the last 10 years," he says, "the next decade promises even more significant change. And as cloud technology becomes more prevalent, IT enterprises will be driven to reconsider the status quo around just about everything we know, including Physical Infrastructure, Virtualization, Automation, Service Management, and Security."

By rethinking economic models regarding IT infrastructure, Gross sees "the emergence of a new class of providers as well as a greater degree of standardization around virtualized OS & Middleware configurations." Furthermore, he says, "There are increasing expectations from consumers of data center services: instant provisioning & de-provisioning, just for openers. Securing your data outside of your data center walls has become a greater business imperative, albeit far more difficult."

Sam Gross "leads the vision, strategy, technology development and implementation for Unisys innovative global IT outsourcing solutions," according to his official bio. He is a recognized industry expert and thought leader in business and IT alignment, application management, service level management and enterprise systems management. His experience spans financial services, telecommunications, federal contracting, retail and manufacturing.
