IN PICTURES: ARN Roundtable - Generation Cloud: Building Next Gen Applications and Services

At an exclusive ARN Roundtable lunch select attendees discussed the evolution of the Cloud market, from the early days and its definition to the promise of the future and what apps and services are attractive to customers. Indeed, the Cloud market has moved beyond the start up phase and into mainstream usage. Cloud is no longer seen as a luxury, or an experimentation - it is now a necessity. It’s now about the implementation and execution of Cloud solutions, all with an eye to profit margins. Photos by MIKE GEE
