Bringing Cloud 2.0 into Focus at HCTS

Bringing Cloud 2.0 into Focus at HCTS

For this week’s News and Views, we spent some time with Dr. Owen Rogers (@owenrog), Senior Analyst, Digital Economics and featured speaker at HCTS. As a contributor to the 451 Research Cloud Price Index, Owen will incorporate these findings into his presentation.

#451HCTS: Hi Owen, looking forward to hearing your presentation at HCTS next month. Can you give us a preview of your session,  ªPricing Benchmarks and Strategies: How Service Providers are Differentiating on Price and Increasing Margins º?

@owenrog: In the same way that a consumer price index uses a basket of groceries to measure inflation, our Cloud Price Index uses a basket of cloud services, which represents a typical cloud application, to measure how cloud pricing is really changing.

The 451 Take

This year, three overarching topics collectively stood out at every venue of the Vegas conference trifecta: the security of technology-equipped automobiles as a focus for growing concerns about security in the Internet of Things, controversy over the sharing of intelligence and security research tools and the role of government in both, and more subtle yet distinct changes in the nature of the security market itself. In this and two other related 451 Research spotlights, 451 Research analysts take a look at these and related themes that will set the tone of the industry in the months to come.
