EMC Speed2Lead 2013: Take a spin in the cloud

It's a very busy week at ITProPortal. The team has taken to the skies to conquer Europe, jetting off as far out as Milan and Berlin to bring you fine readers up close and personal with some of the biggest technology events happening right now.

I'm in northern Italy, attending EMC's Speed2Lead launch, which promises to be a highly exciting event in the realm of big data.

The cloud computing giant is currently preparing to make a lasting imprint on the storage industry, assuring us that this will be "one of the largest launches in its history."

Taking place between on 4 September, EMC has so far kept fairly tight-lipped over what it has in store for the world, but there are clear indications that this is going to be a significant event.

With phrases like "fasten your seatbelt," "gear up" and "floor it" being bandied about liberally, one thing is for sure: speedy cars and eye-catching technologies will feature heavily in proceedings.

The main event kicks off tomorrow, and will include a variety of speeches and presentations from such figures as David Goulden, president and COO of EMC, Paul Stenler, managing director of CitiBank's Citi Infrastructure Group and Patrick Louis, CEO of the Lotus F1 team.

Back in May, ITProPortal was in attendance at EMC World 2013 in Las Vegas, where the company made several big announcements.

If you can't wait for things to get underway this time around, you can find all the teasers you'll need by following the hashtag #Speed2Lead on Twitter.
