CLOUD - It's an EVOLUTION, not a REVOLUTION
Presenter: Jim Valle, Consultant in the IT industry
Cloud computing may seem murky and complicated, but it doesn't have to be. Jim Valle will bring bright, clear skies to this subject including:
- What is Cloud computing anyway?
- How much does it cost?
- Back up, Back up, Back Up!
- Where is your data stored?
- Data Security. Drop Box is not the answer. Neither is iCloud
My role involves making the technology simple.
Our moto is "Cloud is an evolution not a revolution".
More about Jim: Jim has been in the IT industry for 35 years, most of the time working with education and corporate customers in Australia. His skills are working with corporate and education customers.
"As an educator, I love seeing results in teaching and learning. As a manager I enjoy watching and helping staff achieve. My style of management is based around team leadership. Love to let others make my ideas infused in their ideas so that the end result is a win for all. Love of people - all sorts of people is my speciality".
