The Future of Cloud: And what it means for your organisation
23rd November 2016
Royal College of General Practitioners
30 Euston Square, London, NW1 2FB.
There’s no getting away from the fact that cloud technology is growing at a phenomenal rate. According to the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF), 78% of UK organisations are now using cloud-based services of some form - a figure that is set to increase to 85% within the next two years.
Cloud technology is allowing companies to become more agile in their operations, more responsive to their customers’ needs and more competitive in the marketplace. By moving their core functions to the cloud many organisations are experiencing faster growth and innovation, greater flexibility and lower costs.
But what does it all mean? And what does it mean for you?
With everything moving in the direction of ‘the cloud’ you’ve probably got lots of questions and want to know how this digital shift will impact your organisation.
On 23rd November we’re holding a half day event that will explore the evolution of cloud technology and what it really means for you. Whether you have no immediate plans to change the way you operate, or you are planning on incorporating cloud technology into your digital strategy now, or in the future, this event will answer your questions.
