See into the clouds – what does it mean for your business

The Cloud is one of the hottest topics in business and IT at present. There have not been many phenomena in recent history that have received so much attention or hype. One of the challenges is sorting this hype from the reality and understanding what it really means and the potential benefits for your business. Businesses with a clear foresight and strategy on implementing cloud services are already finding significant competitive advantages.

Dot Net Solutions and Microsoft have teamed up with Adam Street to bring you a short, clear and concise introduction to the business drivers behind the Cloud to help you understand exactly how it can benefit your business.

We will introduce real-world examples of organisations large and small that are using the Cloud today and the types of benefits they are already gaining. This exciting evening event will be highly interactive with a chance to meet your peers to discuss the Cloud and network after the event at one of London’s trendiest venues over a free bar.
The event is FREE to attend, so sign up today as places are understandably limited.

Agenda

6.00pm – Registration and welcome drinks


6.15pm – Introduction and overview.
We will start by looking in general terms about what the Cloud is, what the business drivers are and what the difference is between public and private Clouds.


6.30pm – Cloud Applications.
Traditionally known as ASP or SaaS applications, Cloud applications offer the simplest and quickest route in to The Cloud. We will look at a range of vendors explaining what is on offer and how you can use them today.


6.45pm – Cloud Platforms.
Cloud Platforms are the driver behind the new revolution in Cloud Computing. If you run your own website or web applications these adaptive and scalable platforms can help you cut costs and decrease time-to-market. We’ll explain what they are and what’s on offer.


7.00pm – Q&A and networking over a free bar

We hope you can join us at this exclusive invitation-only event at one of London’s trendiest private members clubs. Register now or find out more about the event.

  1. This sounds like a fantastic event, especially the “clear and concise introduction to the business drivers behind the Cloud to help you understand exactly how it can benefit your business.”

    I wish I were in London. We’ve been trying to understand the Cloud in Blacksburg, Virginia, too. Perhaps this might be of interest.

    Thanks for sharing news of your event. Maybe in Blacksburg in some day. :)

    • Hi Anne,

      Thank you for the link to the interesting content! It’s always great to hear about other resources that people can read prior to attending an event like this one! It’s a shame that you aren’t able to make it! I wonder if DotNetSolutions will record or live stream the event. I’ll ask and see whether it’s possible!

      I’m sure someone could do a session covering the same subject out in Virginia but I doubt it would be the same people. You could always see if anyone local would be interested in arranging an event around that subject.

      Keep in touch!
      Sarah
