If there is one constant in our collective business lives, it is that the proverbial cloud has come to represent the majority of IT processes for all of us. The cloud, after all, now accounts for seemingly everything, from our personal lives and how we interact with each other socially, to how we manage our finances, travel, shop, and so on. More importantly, the cloud represents the infrastructure where all of that personal interaction resides.

 It’s no surprise that the cloud has digitally transformed our world. But the question becomes, how do we leverage that digital transformation in ways that we have never thought of before? It is for this reason that CMG presents cloudXchange, a way for experts of all types to come together to share best practices—as well as the good, the bad, and the ugly—to mitigate simple risks, such as not making the same mistake twice.

 I’m incredibly excited knowing what’s in store for attendees and sponsors alike. It has always been our mission to bring the best and the brightest into the spotlight, making CMG a beacon for digital transformation—the epicenter for all things IT-related—and representing the gamut from performance to infrastructure and beyond.

 However, this year represents something far bigger. For CMG internally, we are going through our own transformation—a new brand, and a highly modernized infrastructure to make our experience better than ever for both our members and sponsors.

 And, with that in mind, we knew that this year’s cloudXchange had to represent a giant leap forward, encompassing ideas, speakers, and more that, collectively, represent our collective bright futures.

 So, we are proud to announce that this year we are bringing executive technical speakers from companies such as Uber and Netflix, among others, who will be bringing with them a vision of the future that will together drive all business processes for years to come.

I look forward to virtually meeting everyone in the cloud on June 19, 2018. Learn more and register online at https://www.cmg.org/cloudxchange/registration/.
