Anti-Cloud Patterns – How can QA play a role on decision making of Cloud Adoption

Abstract

The objective of this session is to enlighten the users about Cloud Patterns – Need vs. Adoption, Marketing vs. Reality, ROI vs. Cost. Raj will also discuss the elevation of QA from Validation / Verification to Feasibility Study /  ROI Decision Making. How can QA become the trusted advisor for a CIO / CFO in safeguarding investments? What should be the checks & balances on Cloud Adoption and Migration? There will also be few insights on Cloud Offerings in the world of TaaS.

We plan to make this session very interactive due to the nature of this topic. There will be a 30 minute slide presentation and 45 minute active discussions with the participants. Raj will moderate this active community discussion with guidelines on how to present your observations.
