Cloud computing is one of the most important trends in computing. Some experts have stated that cloud computing will be even more important than the Internet. Gartner Group estimates that the cloud computing market will grow from $37.8 billion in 2010 to $121.1 billion in 2015. A Pew Research Center survey from June, 2010 of leading technology experts found that a strong majority of the experts believed that most companies will "live mostly in the cloud" by 2020.
Thomson Reuters announces three webcasts to explain this new trend and the legal and regulatory issues raised by this shift. This particular webcast will cover the following topics:

- Understanding cloud computing
- Understanding the difference between IAAS, PAAS, and SAAS
- Understanding the technology which is the basis for cloud computing work
- Developing a strategy for adopting cloud computing
- Critical goals for companies adopting the cloud
- Understanding the cloud computing industry and the major companies
- Overview of the legal framework for cloud computing
