"Unlike other major technology industry shifts, such as the shift from Mainframe Computing to Client Server computing, which required massive investment, the Cloud Computing paradigm requires little incremental infrastructure spend, as enterprise computing can be provisioned over the Internet," he writes. "In light of this shift, this session will examine the current competitive and market landscape, and assess emerging trends affecting the Cloud Computing market. We also present a synopsis of current trends in Cloud Computing and its relation to the current capital markets environment."

Joel P. Fishbein, Jr., a Managing Director and senior analyst covering technology, joined Lazard Capital Markets in September 2006.
