May 18, 2017 - InfoReliance's Executive Vice President of Cloud Solutions, John Sankovich, participated as a panelist at Wharton School’s conference on innovation, new ventures and emerging businesses held at the San Francisco campus. Mr. Sankovich discussed the impact of cloud capabilities such as Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence on creating new value models. He also reviewed ideas for dealing with the associated challenges organizations face in adopting cloud technology to include adopting new approaches to return on investment modeling, talent retention, purchasing strategies, and solutions as a service. According to Sankovich, "The cloud offers a very rapid pace of innovation and disruption, as well as an opportunity to rethink traditional approaches to delivering customer value and achieving mission objectives. Every year, thousands of new services are being delivered with competitive pricing models at increased service and quality levels. With these cloud consumption based subscription models, organizations also can take advantage of these services without the massive upfront cost. It is truly a great time to be a customer of these services, leveraging the enormous investments provided by the leading cloud service providers!"
