PSVillage, the largest on-line community serving technology professional services and consulting leaders, announced today that it will host a series of executive breakfasts providing expert presentations and peer discussions on the latest compensation trends and cloud computing impacts on professional services organizations.

Open to professional services executives only, the breakfast offers a focused, technology sector-specific venue for sharing the latest thinking, practices and real-life experience with peers. "This is what we're all about," said PSVillage founder, Terry Jansen. "We seek and provide vehicles that enable the sharing of information and professional advancement of our community. The breakfasts have been extremely well-received because the topics are timely and selected by professional services executives, based on their current operational challenges."

"Members of this community and attendees of the breakfasts each bring an average of 15-20 years of experience to the table," said Ray Wolf, CEO at Green Integrated Services and advisory board member of PSVillage. "This aggregation of thought-leadership is unparalleled and the information-sharing, extraordinary. There's really nothing else out there like it."

The series will be kicked off in Austin, TX on March 5, followed by Atlanta on March 12, Washington DC on March 19, Chicago on April 16, New York City on April 22, Boston on April 30 and the Bay Area on May 7. Compensation trend topics will include linking performance to compensation, how different plans are structured, cost of acquiring new skills, and how the economy is impacting compensation. Cloud computing topics will include the comparison of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS approaches, public, private and hybrid clouds, the role of professional services in migrating clients to cloud computing, cloud financial models, and emerging cloud computing technologies.

The series is sponsored by PSVillage sponsors: Tenrox, Compuware, OpenAir, Projector PSA, and Appirio.
