John Papadakis, senior vice president of sales and business development for StoAmigo, joins the distinguished speakers at CCE:2014 to weigh in on the particulars of cloud deployment in the world of healthcare.
May 12, 2014 (Newswire.com) - John Papadakis, senior vice president of sales and business development for StoAmigo, has been selected as one of the executive speaking faculty for Cloud Computing East 2014, slated for May 15 - 16 at the Hilton Doubletree in Washington, D.C.
Cloud Computing East 2014 - presented by the Cloud Computing Association (CCA) and the Distributed Computing Industry Association (DCIA) - has a dual focus on two powerful industries: government and healthcare. This strategic summit for business leaders and software developers will examine the unique issues, opportunities and special considerations that both healthcare providers and government entities face when adopting cloud-based, IT solutions.
According to the DCIA, The US public sector is projected to pay $10 billion per year by 2018 for cloud computing services in military and government agencies. Meanwhile, annual spending on cloud solutions by the US healthcare sector will grow from $1.8 billion in 2013 to an astonishing $6.5 billion by 2018.
"These financial investments require careful planning and restructuring of the IT organizations in order to be fruitful," Papadakis said. "Having the right cloud service provider is critical to whether these ventures succeed or fail.
"Our company, StoAmigo, will be presenting our views on the proper vendor selection criteria for the healthcare industry - what to look for and what to avoid when choosing a cloud provisioning partner."
Papadakis has 35 years of experience in the field of IT and Telecommunications. He serves on numerous boards and has held many senior positions worldwide, from Chief Operating Officer of AT&T Mediterranean to Vice Chairman of Telecommunication and IT companies. His impressive background includes advising major world figures and international organizations, including the Czech government and the Minister of Communication of Greece.
