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 of cloud computing.

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 and other Online Services from Microsoft.
