Mr. Obeid covered today's business and computing environments from the perspective of a SAAS delivery provider.

Mr. Obeid went through the technological advances which resulted in a shift of the functions of the IT department. He also spoke about the impact of cloud computing and the various leading cloud providers—their offerings, drivers and their challenges.

By providing business offerings over the crowd, services typically provided by the IT department is bypassed. Mr. Obeid compared and analyzed single and multi-tenancy applications, pricing models, integrations, collaborations and the different categories of solutions from which the typical enterprise can choose.

The speaker also touched upon the rise of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, and Business Intelligence in the marketplace. An exciting session indeed for the students of different Majors and an eye-opener. ​​
