Business efficiencies using Cloud Computing & Applications
This workshop is an introductory course to the concept of cloud computing and how it might benefit businesses (small and large) by moving towards a new delivery model for their ICT needs. It is designed to help businesses think about ways they can reduce the burden (and cost) of supporting their own information technology infrastructure and create the conditions for a more flexible approach to working.
NB – This is not a practical workshop and delegates are not required to bring a laptop computer.
NB – Basic IT literacy is advantageous.
This workshop will explain the various concepts behind cloud computing and provide practical examples of the benefits for businesses. It will cover critical thinking on the various stages towards adoption – from discovery of new and novel applications through to understanding the risks and economic viability.
Participants will leave with a better understanding of if cloud computing is right for their business, what the possibilities are and how they can make a seamless transition if necessary.
