The Adelaide Connected events are designed to bring together all disciplines to share knowledge, experience and make connections

About this Event
There is a lot of interest in discussing the move to the cloud because it has become a necessary design consideration for any mature or maturing business architecture. The IT industry is awash with examples of businesses moving to and from the cloud and the suggestion that this is going to continue well into the future makes it an interesting subject.

There doesn’t appear to be a one size fits all solution to moving to the cloud, as many organisations are starting from different places and have differing ideas about why they need to make the move. The fact is that there is a huge industry that has emerged and it will continue to grow, offering solutions that will make sense to the businesses seeking well designed and executed, contemporary ways of working.

The Adelaide Connected events are designed to bring together specialists of all disciplines to share knowledge, experience and make new connections. The Cloud Connected event will bring a cloud focus to the business discussions and provide learning opportunities for all attendees.

Learning Objectives:

• What are the key features of modern cloud offerings to businesses?

• What are businesses doing in the cloud and why?

• Why is Cyber Security a major consideration in the cloud?

• What is the business case for moving to the cloud?

What is included for this event?
