GOVIS Session

GOVIS Session

  • Comments 1

I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to present a session on cloud computing at the 2009 Government IT conference GOVIS – which was a lot of fun. You can view it on the GOVIS media site or Nigel’s cross-platform implementation is here (which is a story in itself!).

Here’s the session outline:

The introduction of cloud computing marks a significant change in the IT industry. Offering scalability, flexibility, efficiency and lower costs, the benefits of this technology are widespread and generating a lot of attention from CIO’s, architects and technology leaders as businesses and government look to leverage ‘the Cloud’ within their organisations.


Software plus Services (S+S) is Microsoft’s vision for the connected world. When you combine the ever growing power of devices and the increasing ubiquity of the Web, you come up with a sum that is greater than its parts. The best of installed software and online services.


Is this technology for you? Make up your own mind when you understand the what, why, where, when and how from this global leader.

Key learning points:
1. Cloud computing is a hot topic right now, discover exactly what it is and why you should be interested.
2. What does it mean for IT in NZ (government, enterprise, small business etc.)?
3. A look at the Windows Azure offering from Microsoft.
