Business challenges can disappear when you are flexible - and nothing improves business flexibility as much as cloud computing and mobile working.

This workshop cuts through the jargon to show you how the cloud can drive business growth, productivity and flexibility. Whether you are a sole trader, run an organisation with a mobile workforce, or simply need to gain an edge over your competitors this workshop is for you.

The session will explain what is meant by the ‘cloud’ and ‘remote working’. It will highlight the benefits that embracing the cloud can bring to your business, including some that you may have overlooked. For example, cloud computing greatly enhances the scope for effective collaboration with your clients, with your supply chain, with business partners. Cloud also switches IT costs from capital expenditure to pay-as-you-go and enables you to scale your business far more effectively.

The workshop looks at the practicalities of cloud and mobile working including connecting to the cloud, deciding on the cloud services that are right for your business and securing your cloud access. It doesn’t shy away from the potential risks of embracing the cloud in your operations and shows you how to minimise and mitigate these.

Who should attend?

Flexibility, productivity, scalability, growth, collaboration, automation. If any of these are important to you or your business then you need to attend this workshop.

Workshop will cover

  • Just what is the cloud? How does it differ from traditional IT?
  • The benefits to your business of embracing the cloud and remote working. There’s so much more than simply being able to work remotely

  • Making the best cloud choices for your specific business needs.
  • How to work safely and securely in the cloud.

Workshop outcome:
