DAILYHOSTNEWS, December 7, 2011 – A new business-to-business membership organization — the Cloud Computing Association (CCA) — has been formed to promote the adoption and use of cloud-based technologies by large-cap and small- and middle-market enterprises (SMEs) across all industry sectors.
“We are building a community of corporate end-users, application developers, and service providers of cloud-based solutions and products. The CLOUD is rapidly becoming the fuel that is powering business efficiency and growth, and we are providing our individual and corporate members with opportunities to exchange information and promote knowledge of how cloud-based technologies can streamline business processes, help businesses to expand more quickly into new markets, and save costs,” said Don Buford, Executive Director of the CCA.
The CCA offers free membership to individuals and sponsored corporate memberships to providers of cloud-based solutions and services. Membership benefits include: discounts to attend CCA-hosted conferences, expos and member-only networking events, free access to the latest white-papers, and webinars offered by the CCA’s Corporate Members, and much more.
To achieve its mission, the CCA offers a variety of online and face-to-face opportunities to its members.On April 16-17, 2012 at the Downtown Hilton in Miami, the CCA is presenting two side-by-side conferences with a shared expo area.
One event will focus on cloud-based solutions specifically designed for the HEALTHCARE industry (hCLOUD) and the other (eCLOUD) will provide a forum to explore how a cross-section of ENTERPRISES — including government agencies and small to medium sized businesses (SMEs) — can benefit from the adoption of cloud-based solutions.
