About the Cloud Architect Alliance

The CAA organizes 4 events per year with the main goal to share knowledge and exchange experiences among (certified) professional architects. Each event is unique and brings best-in-class content delivered by thought leaders from the industry. As an independent forum, we separate the vendor speak from the real story, hence our participants enjoy highly valued talks while enjoying a top-class diner at an even better venue. The Cloud Architect Alliance is considered the only forum at this level for this audience. There is no comparable forum as-of-today.
