Richard Marcello from Unisys Makes the Enterprise Cloud Computing Case

Delivering Initial Keynote at 4th International Cloud Computing Expo

A leading-edge conference such as the 4th International Cloud Computing Expo, which begins Monday, November 2 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, is expected to draw a lot of hot young companies and new technologies that are bent on subverting the dominant paradigm and inventing the future.

But this particular conference is also drawing in long-established players who have decades of experience serving the enterprise. Count Unisys and its President of Systems Technology Rich Marcello in this latter group.

Marcello will be delivering the Expo's initial keynote address, at 2pm on Monday, delivering his views on why  "The Time is Right for Enterprise Cloud Computing." Marcello, who spent many years at another enterprise technology giant, HP, before joining Unisys, outlined his vision and views in an exclusive interview with Jeremy Geelan in the runup to the Expo. During his keynote, he is expected to expound on his views, making the case for enterprise cloud computing in general and the role of Unisys in this market in particular.

Unisys announced in June that it wanted to assume what it views as its natural place at the adult's table when it comes to cloud. An enterprise technology provider since the dawn of corporate computing, the company is working to alleviate CIOs' security concerns when it comes to Cloud Computing.

Marcello noted back in June that "cloud computing will revolutionize the way enterprises obtain business and IT services and change the kind of payback they get from their IT investments...(but) they have lacked the comprehensive security to make them confident in doing so."

“Security is in Unisys DNA," Marcello continued. "(Additionally), data center transformation and application modernization are our heritage, and outsourcing services tailored to the client’s specific business needs are our forté."

Marcello will presumably cover his company's "Stealth" security solution during his keynote, technology that was originally designed for government applications, and which "cloaks" data through multiple encryption and authentication levels and bit-splits data to render the information invisible as it moves across networks and within the cloud.
