Join fellow technologists, entrepreneurs, and investors for the NY Enterprise Technology Meetup's (NYETM) December meetup on Wednesday 12/10/14 from 6:30pm-9:00pm!

For our December meetup we've partnered with Accenture for a special lineup, including a keynote by Accenture's CTO on the state of hybrid cloud. See the full agenda below:

• Keynote -- The State of Hybrid Cloud -- Paul Daugherty, Accenture CTO & Senior Global Managing Director

• Accenture Cloud Platform Demo -- Michael Liebow, Global Managing Director, Accenture

• Amazon Lambda Demo -- Randall Hunt, Technical Evangelist, Amazon Web Services

• Pivotal Cloud Foundry Demo -- Jonathan Fullam, Regional Field Engineering Manager, Pivotal

• Special open bar holiday afterparty! (details announced at the meetup)


Accenture Cloud Platform Demo -- The Accenture Cloud Platform (ACP) is a self-service cloud management portal, hosted and managed by Accenture and offered to our clients “as a Service.” ACP manages the virtual infrastructure of their public and private clouds. Cloud-based, scalable, pay-as-you-go consumption of IT infrastructure services is now essential to delivering the business capabilities required by a digital business. ACP allows digital businesses to get fast access to pre-vetted, quality cloud services through an extensible service catalog for IT governance and self-service provisioning of cloud computing services. ACP supports leading providers such as Amazon, Microsoft, Cisco, NTT Communications and others.

Amazon Lambda Demo -- Announced at Amazon Re:invent, AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code in response to events and automatically manages the compute resources for you, making it easy to build applications that respond quickly to new information. AWS Lambda starts running your code within milliseconds of an event such as an image upload, in-app activity, website click, or output from a connected device. You can also use AWS Lambda to create new back-end services where compute resources are automatically triggered based on custom requests. With AWS Lambda you pay only for the requests served and the compute time required to run your code.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry Demo -- Cloud Foundry is a new platform the converges both application developer and IT operator processes so that enterprises can quickly iterate on software while achieving built-in operator efficiencies. Pivotal will demonstrate how Cloud Foundry PaaS enables a developer to deploy an application in seconds and remove the complexities around application health management, updates, and scaling.
