Event Details

Many organisations (Private & Not for profit) are now starting to look seriously or are in part using at “The Cloud” and Open Source technology. However doubt still remains as to the business benefits that can be realised by utilising these tools.

If you have doubts don't worry you are not the only one. Often even IT resellers and consultants find it difficult to understand if they are offering the best solutions to their customers as they have limited visibility on what is available apart from the offerings from their standard vendors.

In this seminar we take a look at what Cloud & Open source technology actually is, how public and private sector organisations are utilising it, the business opportunities presented, explore a few of the common myths that surround those technologies and get into some real life case studies on how you and your organisation can benefit.

OK, you talk the talk but can you walk the walk?
We know  that Cloud & Open Source are "just" technologies and the IoT, Digital and Smart Cities are buzzwords created to simplify complex concepts so we want you to get a real understanding of what those new (sometime recycled) buzzwords mean and how they may relate to your business or public sector organisation.

We want also to allow you to go back to the office the next morning and be able to test usable enterprise grade solutions straight away as talks are nice but it's much better to see things working and delivering results from day 1.

Who may find this event useful?
Almost anybody that is running a business of any size, IT resellers & consultants, software houses, ISPs & UK cloud providers and public sector organisations.

Brighton and Sussex businesses and Local Government organisations will have booking priority so it will be a good opportunity to meet with potential customers and business partners to exchange ideas.
The event is not made for technicians or developers even if some will be present to answer the most complex questions.

Omnis Systems Ltd

Omnis Systems Ltd is an international distributor, based in Brighton (UK) and Italy, specialised in Commercial Open Source solutions. Commercial Open Source, known also as Open Core, it's a category of solutions developed by commercial organisations like Microsoft, Oracle, VMWare, Citrix etc... but that have chosen to base their software on Open Source or Linux foundations (like most of the companies mentioned) and are providing free access to the source code or Community versions.
Unlike the Community supported free Open Source applications Open Core solutions are backed by commercial companies which guarantee Enterprise level quality, features and support like any other software you may have purchased in the past but very often with costs that are a lot lower than traditional vendors.
