Four F.U.D.s of the Cloud

Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub
112 Sw 2nd Ave
Portland, OR 97204, US (map)



Cloud computing has quickly evolved from marketing terminology and buzzwords to a valuable and often vital way to conduct business and deliver services. With the rapid rate of cloud adoption and the constant change in the industry, it can be confusing to sift through all the information and get to the facts. Join us as we discuss “The Top Four FUDs of the Cloud” in a fun pub environment.

The Four FUD Topics and Presenters Are:

Differences in Service Delivery (SaaS and on Premise Solutions) --Jorge Zelaya, VP of Client Services at EasyStreet will discuss integrated vs. customized, the importance of renewals (B4B vs. B2B) and the focus on strategy and business outcomes.

Security and Compliance -- Adam Shnider, Managing Director, NW Coalfire Systems will discuss SSAE16, HIPPA, PCI, etc. and what customers expect from cloud vendors from a compliance support standpoint, customer requirements, and the minimum requirements everyone should have, and how not all cloud providers and services are created equal.

Financial Impacts -- Chris Wheaton, VP of Services at Jive Software will discuss services revenue models and how they differ from being subscription based vs. traditional license and maintenance. He will also discuss how to generate incremental services revenue when there is no longer a defined maintenance revenue stream.

Success Stories – Adam Lynch, Founder and Director of Product Development, Hubbub Health will share success stories despite all the F.U.D!

The speakers will then host a now classic Reddit-style AMA (Ask Me Anything) session after their presentations, giving attendees a chance to ask questions and add to what’s sure to be a lively discussion.

This event will be moderated by Claire Hernandez, VP of Client Services, HealthSparq.
