Cloud services continues to be one of the fastest-growing sectors in the technology industry, increasing from an estimated $209 billion this year to $555 billion in 2020. Clearly, there is tremendous opportunity, but it can be difficult to chart strategy and ensure success in such a rapidly changing space.

At AppDirect, we pride ourselves on not only offering the best technology to power the cloud services sector, but also stewarding the information and best practices that can help businesses across the cloud ecosystem succeed. That’s why we are incredibly excited to announce our second annual Partner Summit taking place this September 23rd through 25th at the historic Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco.

Building on our success from last year, our focus has been on creating a high-value event that offers exclusive insights from industry leaders, as well as opportunities for one-on-networking with some of the world’s leading companies. With that in mind, we’ve put together an impressive agenda that features keynotes from industry leaders, such as Paul Maritz—CEO of Pivotal and former head of VMware—and Ajay Royan, cofounder and managing partner of Mithril Capital, among many others.

Moreover, we’re gathering many of our partners to share strategies about what works (or doesn’t work) in the fast-changing world of cloud services. Our best practices panel sessions were among our most valuable last year, and we are looking forward to even more critical insights from executives at Deutsche Telekom, Red Hat, Samsung, Symantec, Telstra, TeliaSonera, Microsoft, and AT&T, just to name a few.

In addition to keynotes, panels, and fireside chats, the Partner Summit also features a grand gala to welcome AppDirect’s guests to San Francisco. With the beautiful San Francisco Bay as a backdrop, attendees will enjoy dinner and networking in a relaxed atmosphere at La Mar Cebicheria Peruana. Hosting our colleagues from around the world and showing them the best of what San Francisco has to offer is sure to be a Summit highlight.

Despite the increasing interest in cloud services, the AppDirect Partner Summit is the only industry event to focus exclusively on this sector. It’s not too late to be part of this exciting, unique event.
