The Cloud - the What, the Why and how it will change everything

Presentation: IT strategy that actually builds business profitability. Want to utilize technology more effectively?  Then you need to know how it works!  This is your chance to learn about one business-realted technology: the Cloud.

Why should I learn about the cloud? you ask.  Because there are many forms of business-realted technology out there and in order to save time and money building your business, you need to make informed decisions about which technology to use or not use.

Only 5% of businesses ever break 1 million dollars in sales.  Of those businesses that do only 5% break 10 Million dollars in sales.  Almost 2000 years ago a group of monks developed an information strategy that is still being copied today.  With each new technology change, organizations aligning with these strategies consistently outgrow their competitors and maintain their place in the top 5% of their industry.

Presented in everyday business language we talk about how the right cloud strategy can leapfrog your organization into the top 5% of your industry.  You will understand how a well-designed cloud strategy can, slim the technology budget, reduce or even eliminate the technology capital expenditures budget and increase work place productivity by 10% or more.

The Speaker: James Murray has been in Information Technology (IT) for over 20 years.  Starting at the desktop level and working up to managing international projects. James’ client list has included the City of Seattle, Microsoft, Intuit, Smith Barney, Washington Mutual and hundreds of SMB companies in the Puget Sound area, Washington State and on the West Coast.  He has taught for several colleges and written for Microsoft and McGraw-Hill Publishing.  Having worked for the Ma & Pop small business owners, Fortune 500 companies and everyone in-between James has a unique viewpoint about what technology strategies work and what don’t work.  James is a proponent of the IT leadership culture and an IT concept called Monotonous Reliability.

    So sorry I have to cancel at the last minute. I have a project that has to get done tonight, so won't make it to today. This looks like a great presentation (and one that I need) - - I hope you will be doing it again sometime!
