Webinar - CLOUD 101: Removing the Fear and Confusion Associated with Moving your Business to the Cloud
What does it mean to move your data “to the cloud”?  If you are like most, you probably have some idea of the basics.  Yet, many often resist moving their IT infrastructure to the cloud as they don’t fully understand what it means to their business.  This lack of knowledge instills a fear associated with the risks and costs of investing in a new technology.  Having a thorough understanding – what it is, its benefits, its risks, and how to manage those risks – is a critical step to successful migration.

This non-technical webinar will demystify cloud computing.  We’ll start by reviewing the very basics and then dive into the different types of cloud computing and delivery models.  After providing a better understanding, we’ll then review cloud solutions that are commonly adopted and highlight the main benefits for businesses that move their IT infrastructure to the cloud.   

Topics that will be covered include:

  • What is the cloud?
  • Common terms and categories associated with the cloud
  • Primary benefits of moving your IT infrastructure to the cloud
  • Common cloud adoptions, specific to organization size

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will have the ability to:

  • Thoroughly understand the meaning of cloud computing
  • Identify services that can easily be adopted by the cloud
  • Determine if cloud computing is a viable option for their business

Who should attend this event? 
Anyone who wants to become educated on cloud computing and understand the pros and cons of implementation
