I’m delighted to be speaking at an Interactive Conference Panel at The London Conference on Cyberspace on November 2. On Day 2 of the conference the International Chamber of Commerce presents a session on the changing business environment from solid state to the cloud environment.
This panel discussion will look at a variety of questions including: how the Cloud is changing how businesses and individuals use the internet; what are the anticipated benefits of Cloud services? Are companies becoming web-centric? Security and privacy concerns? Are there (policy) barriers to deployment of web-services?
The session Chair will be Steven Pattinson Chief Executive Officer, International Chamber of Commerce, London.

You can also listen to this AudioBoo that outlines what will be happening at the conference. In the podcast, Richard Burge, the CEO of Wilton Park hosts a discussion with John Duncan, senior UK diplomat and Special Representative for the London Conference on Cyberspace, and Ben Hammersley, Editor at Large of Wired magazine.
The speakers discuss why the UK government is holding an international conference on cyberspace, an environment where the traditional models of legislation and state action frequently don’t work. How can governments work with businesses, and the people behind the innovation and the development of digital media to ensure that they understand the issues and can help realise the opportunities that they present for their citizens? What are the pitfalls that governments need to avoid and how can the balance between freedom and security be managed?
In this video Jeffrey Peel, Managing Consultant at Quadriga Consulting, provides an overview of the Mobile Cloud market – and argues that the mobile cloud is transformational at a series of different levels.
He argues that ubiquitous access, combined with the rapid consumption of apps, is changing user perceptions of computing. He also talks about the economic transformation of less developed economies by mobile technology.
In addition, Jeff illustrates how businesses need to embrace the ‘context richness’ of the interactive mobile cloud to offer new types of services to consumers.
This was the opening address at the first Mobile Cloud Summit in London’s Tech City.
