“It is our privilege and an exciting opportunity for us to partner with such an esteemed organization, as IDA crafts and creates the must-attend event for the cloud community. Given the explosive growth and even greater untapped potential in this field, it is imperative that the latest developments, advances, and applications be given the best possible platform for discussion.
