@ServiceMesh to present on #virtualization and #cloud infrastructure at Ovum/Butler Strategy Briefing, April 6, 2011.

While most enterprises today recognize the significance of cloud computing, questions still abound on approach and implementation. Is cloud computing transformative for enterprise IT, or is it simply part of the continued stream of commoditization and automation of IT infrastructure? When executed and managed with a clear strategy in place, cloud computing can directly impact an organization's competitive position and performance. Session attendees will learn about how enterprises can strategically adopt and leverage cloud computing to gain a significant competitive edge.
