2011 is being billed as the ‘year of the cloud’ and cloud computing is predicted to boost the EU economy over the next 5 years by £645 billion, with the UK and Germany as the biggest beneficiaries of this growth. Other reports say that cloud is moving faster than any other ‘next big thing’ and could represent 15% of the total IT services market by 2014. But what does all this mean to the average British company? Is the hype real? Why should you take an interest? What are the benefits? How does it apply to you?
All these questions and more will be answered at ‘A Cloudy Day’, hosted by Liquid Partner, Deans Computer Services on Wednesday 22nd June in Boston Spa.
As well as hearing from Liquid’s MD, Matt Holmes (in his role as Chair of the BASDA Cloud Computing Special Interest Group and member of the Cloud Industry Forum Governing Body) explaining in everyday language what cloud is all about, what’s happening right now, and how you can use it to the advantage of your company, you will be able to hear from Microsoft’s ‘Cloud Dude’ (also known as Business Development Manager of Online Services, Ted Shultz) and find out why one of the world’s biggest companies is investing heavily in cloud. Plus you’ll have the opportunity to see demos of leading cloud accounting systems, Liquid Accounts and NetSuite.
This is a chance to evaluate the potential changes and opportunities that the new technology can offer your business, and meet the people behind the technology.
The day will be split into a morning session and afternoon session (starting at 9am and 2pm) and you will have the opportunity to hear the main speakers and see the demonstrations at both sessions.
