June’s live Cloud Wars Expo event featured dozens of industry leaders allowing the Acceleration Economy team access to the inner workings of the greatest growth market the world has ever known.
If you missed the Expo or just want to catch up on sessions you were not able to attend, then you’re in luck. We recorded more than 40 hours of education sessions from the event, which are available for free to Acceleration Economy subscribers. We’re also previewing the content in this series of Moments, which feature highlights from each session.
In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment, Utpal Mangla (General Manager, Industry Edge Cloud, IBM) and Doc Vaidhyanathan (CPO/CTO of Compliance Technologies, IBM) define the reasons customers cannot use a generic cloud. With each industry being different, customer needs as they relate to the cloud will vary. A generic cloud model does not fit the mold for every industry.
00:45 — Vaidhyanathan says that there are horizontal benefits that a generic cloud offers, but customers recognized their need for an industry-specific cloud.
00:56 — The needs of each industry vary; therefore, the cloud should adapt to mirror that. Some benefits of a generic cloud that accelerates certain industries do not benefit all.
01:01 — There is a need to specialize and create a more valuable cloud for each industry.
