Firestorm 2012: post game wrap up

Firestorm 2012: post game wrap up - Egnyte Blog

With some time to recover from our first ever event, I wanted to take time to reflect on the last few days.

First, I wanted to thank everyone who took time out from their day to spend it with us. I hope that everyone was able to walk away from the event having learned something new and feeling a renewed sense of energy and potential in what will be implemented in the cloud in 2013.Some of the themes that I found particularly interesting were:

  • Enterprises using the private clouds hybridized with public cloud infrastructure
  • IT proactively looking at business use cases to drive their decision
  • Speed to market of developments and a new responsiveness to business users behavior
  • Security focusing on securing the 10% that's truly important and working with employees to insure they understand how to "be secure" when handling that data
  • The importance of IPv6 and it's security capabilities
  • The new understanding of social behavior and its ramifications
  • The CIO as true strategist, and not reactionary tactician
  • The new enterprise sales model driven by use case and speed of applicability

As we find our way into the New Year, there will be a lot of changes to this thing we call the "cloud". Its promise will come to fruition in new ways, and we will see implementations on a truly massive scale. Our own Egnyte Cloud Control solution will roll out, offering enterprises a global name space that disassociates geographical location of data with the ability to access it.  There's truly much new in the world, and we're glad to be a part of it.
