Dear Ms Ross

 

I hope you won’t mind this final reminder about the above seminar. Please note there is a charge for most delegates, although no-one is excluded on the basis of ability to pay (see below).

 

The focus:

The challenges and opportunities for public and private sector organisations moving their infrastructure to the cloud, or using the cloud to deliver software, media content and advertising.

 

Context:

As UK government prepares to publish its Cloud Computing Strategy.

Concerns about the regulatory and technical aspects of data protection when storing and processing data remotely.

The launch of new cloud services aimed at industry and consumers.

 

Key discussion points:

  • The extent that cloud technology can deliver real efficiency savings for private, public and third sector organisations;
  • The prospects for cloud technologies and cloud strategies in 2011 and the companies to watch in the coming year;
  • Who is responsible for securing information stored online and – with many data centres based outside the UK – who has jurisdiction if something goes wrong?; and
  • The role of the ‘G-Cloud’ in the delivery of efficient government following the ICT Efficiency Review.
