Cloud computing is a major trend for Wall Street in 2012, but is the buy side ready for the cloud? The advances over this past year should not be overlooked, particularly for buy side firms.

In this presentation, Bill Fearnley, Jr., Senior Analyst at Celent, discusses the following topics:

  • Cloud developments in 2011 including increased security and regulation
  • What systems and applications can firms use to move up quickly to the cloud?
  • What systems will take longer to transition to the clouds?
  • How do you get a full accounting of the cost savings and what can you do to boost the bottom line?
  • What’s on the cloud horizon for 2012?
