Ten Commandments for Transforming to Cloud

Luc Vogeleer, Chief Technologist, HP and Tom Hall, WW Product Market Manager, HP are presenting their version of the Top 10 Best Practices learned from customer projects in their HP Discover 2013 session DT2883 Application Transformation in Preparation for Cloud.

The abstract reads, “ … companies that succeed in turning Big Data into actionable information will have a clear competitive advantage over those that don't.”
