DEMYSTIFYING CLOUD COMPUTING
Cloud Computing is on the radar of many businesses, the obvious benefit of accessibility and the longer term cost savings make it an obvious route for data storage in the future. Yet, many businesses remain reluctant to commit to the Cloud. There are the obvious concerns around data protection; hacking, outages, privacy, and back-up are all commonly cited concerns when discussing the Cloud.
Add to this the various options surrounding free storage vs paid, and where your data is actually stored and you very quickly become confused, if not completely petrified by the decisions you have to make.
The April New Media Breakfast will explore Cloud Computing and attempt to demystify the whole topic. To help us do this, we are delighted to have Andy Croghan, Digital & Social Media Co-Ordinator at iomart Group plc join us for the presentation.
About the speaker and the presentation
From studying Media & Cultural studies at the dawn of the social media age he has seen how the use of the social media has developed and transformed from day one. Using that knowledge he has worked for Computeach, DPD, Easyspace and now iomart developing Social strategies that combine customer service, marketing and education.
The education aspect of social media is often over looked by brands and he will be discussing how he is currently at the start of a new long term plan to educate and inform a growing audience using social media combined with engaging content, such as podcasts, to demystify the world of Cloud Computing. He will be concentrating on the irrational fears businesses hold towards security in the Cloud and how best to manage a transition from legacy platforms to the Cloud.
