Session Title: Purdue Pharma and Their Move to the Cloud

Speaker: Stephen Rayda, Chief Technology Officer, Purdue Pharma, L.P.

Most recently, Mr. Rayda has led the transition of the Purdue infrastructure to a private cloud and has seen to the transition of l1, l2 support functions to a managed services firm.
