It's looking at it from a large-scale, enterprise architecture point of view, so it will be most suitable for infrastructure specialists from universities, TAFEs and those of you running IT for large school groups. If you'd be interested in signing up, all the details are below:image

Cloud optimise your Datacentre using a hybrid model

For today’s CIOs and technology leaders, the cloud presents an opportunity to rethink the role IT plays in defining a business’ strategy. Because of its power to fundamentally change how businesses operate and compete, the cloud is a game changer.

Attend this interactive session to learn how Microsoft’s approach to the cloud works on your terms by:

  • Making the cloud work for your business - with a comprehensive range of Datacentre cloud offerings that span on-premises , hosted and public cloud solutions
  • Using your existing familiar infrastructure, tools, and skills - as you take advantage of the cloud for maximum value, efficiency, and productivity
  • Providing the kinds of social, ubiquitous, connected experiences - that today’s users love and expect without introducing complexity into your IT infrastructure

Using case study examples and demonstration scenarios you will gain a better understanding of the steps to consider in order to become the driver for Cloud adoption in your organisation while:

  • Retaining maximum control and flexibility with your own highly scalable private cloud
  • Benefiting from operational excellence while minimizing risk with the public cloud
  • Maintaining the right IT balance for your business with a hybrid environment
