TOPIC: The Cloud: Could i, Should i, Would i

Yes Virginia, there IS a cloud for i.  The Cloud isn’t just for email and Windows servers anymore - and you don't HAVE to change platforms.

Michael Fryman (Sr. Solution Architect) and Parke Cummins (Delivery Manager) from Ciber will talk about Cloud in general and what’s new.  They’ll also talk about the pros & cons and show real life studies & examples.

We’d also like to hear your questions and about YOUR experience:
     Are you looking at using The Cloud? 
What applications or hardware are you looking at moving to the cloud?
     What is driving the decision in your case? 
What are you finding in your exploration of what’s out there for you (Cloud-wise)?

This meeting will have a short presentation followed by discussion.  Michael and Parke have knowledge and experience to help you arm yourself with discussion points that you can use in your decision making for your company.
