Cloud & Your Business: Make The Right Choice
Thu 27 October 2016, 08:30 – 12:30 IST
What stage of the cloud journey are you currently at? Do you understand the business value of cloud in the context of your organisation? Are you maximising your cloud capabilities? Do you know how cloud can solve some of your IT challenges?
Cloud has been a hot topic for many years now and everyone has heard about the benefits, but what are the benefits to you and your organisation? What are the challenges you face and what kind of service would help you run your business better?
SureSkills, as the only accredited Education & Consulting Partner in Ireland for AWS, Microsoft, VMware and Google will take an independent look at how these global cloud giants can be tailored to help your business, because one size doesn’t fit all.
We recently sent out a cloud survey to thousands of contacts and clients to discover what organisations really want from cloud and what services, education and guidance would help them on their cloud journey. The event is based around the results of this survey.
Who Should Attend?
This event is for business people evaluating moving to cloud and want to understand what considerations need to be taken, as well as the changes cloud adoption will have on their organisation. This will NOT be a highly technical event, but with that said it will be beneficial for IT people to understand where the business is coming from and how the traditional role of an IT person will change in this imminent 'World of Cloud'.
