Computing as a Service - 7 Insights on the Future of Cloud Computing Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Safe Harbor Statement
    1
    • This presentation contains “forward –looking” statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If the risks or uncertainties ever materialize or the assumptions prove incorrect, our results may differ materially form those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical fact could be deemed forward-looking, including, but not limited to, any projections of financial information; any statements about historical results that may suggest trends for our business; any statements of the plans, strategies, and objectives of management for future operations; any statements of expectation or belief regarding future events, potential markets or market size, technology developments, or enforceability of our intellectual property rights; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the items mentioned.
    • 2. These statements are based on estimates and information available to us at the time of this presentation and are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results could differ materially from our current expectations as a result of many factors, including but not limited to: the unpredictable nature of our rapidly evolving market and quarterly fluctuations in our business; the effects of competition; and any adverse changes in our indirect channel relationships. These and other risks and uncertainties associated with our business are described in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2009, filed with the SEC on May 12, 2009. We assume no obligation and do not intend to update these forward-looking statements.
