PwC is a Grande Level sponsor of the annual event which takes place on September 19-23 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

"Cloud computing and digital transformation can not only help companies revolutionize their business by eliminating the technology barriers that have long frustrated business leaders, but it can deliver best in class solutions at a fraction of previous investments. If applied well, cloud computing can enable innovation, improve time-to-market and increase flexibility."

The Executive Solution session, "Cloud Computing and Digital Transformation: Your Next Competitive Advantage?" presented by Gerard Verweij and Mike Pearl, will explore how a clearly integrated cloud strategy equates to a business value far deeper than cost savings - and can give your company a new competitive advantage. The discussion will take place on September 20th 11:00 a.m. in the YBCA, Novellus Theater, San Francisco.
