  • The Cloud Imperative: Andy Burton, Chairman, Cloud Industry Forum

    by Andy Burton

    Andy will help set the scene for Day 1 of Mobile Cloud Summit, arguing why cloud computing has become an imperative in an era of increasingly pervasive mobile devices and the 'consumerisation' of business IT.

    Andy Burton is Chairman of the Cloud Industry Forum, a not-for-profit organisation that champions the emerging UK cloud industry and aims to provide transparency to end users about the capability and standards adopted by suppliers. In the last year he has overseen the launch of a new Self Certification Code of Practice for Cloud Service Providers. Andy is also CEO of Fasthosts Internet Group, delivering web hosting, IAAS and cloud services to several hundred thousand customers in the UK and USA. Prior to Fasthosts Internet Group, Andy held CEO roles at Centennial Software; Content Technologies (Baltimore), and Chubb Information Security. He was also Chief Operating Officer of ClearSwift, and held Managing Director posts within the publicly traded Chubb Security Group (now UTC) and Securicor Group (now G4S).

  • Business in a Hyper-Mobile Age

    by Vishal Jain, Anne McCrossan, Leon Benjamin and Mark Richards

    Anne McCrossan is a good friend of Quadriga Consulting and has spoken at several events we’ve organised. Why? Because she’s got a wonderful business brain, knows social technology inside out, and she’s passionate about how businesses need to become social organisations to succeed in the socially networked age.

    We’ve asked Anne to run a discussion panel at the Mobile Cloud Summit focused on how the pervasive mobile cloud will affect businesses – and other types of social organisation. The session will touch on new types of social organisation, new hybrid applications that are presence and context aware, new types of marketing and consumer engagement. Anne will be joined by two mobile marketing experts.
