Both Cloud and IoT have completely transformed the way that businesses can operate, offering the potential of rapid growth, cost efficiency and the ability to analyse data on a scale not previously possible. At IP EXPO Manchester find out how to get the most of these technologies to drive forward your business. 

Learn, understand and meet experts on some of the following areas:

Managing a Multi-Cloud Environment

Most large businesses operate a hybrid model with some data or applications held in cloud environments and more sensitive data held on-premises. This approach decreases reliance on a single vendor and decreases risks from a disaster mitigation perspective, however it can be in practicality, complicated to manage.
Understand from the experts at the event how to overcome and manage these complications.

 

Improved Collaboration

The use of cloud applications can help you reduce time to market as it allows a workforce in many locations work collaboratively and share information in realtime with shared platforms.

 

Cost efficiency 

Because your business will not have to buy or manage equipment, Cloud can be a considerably cheaper option to run your applications. It is also extremely flexible allowing you to pay for what you use. However understanding billing structures and complex security and governance issues is essential to making the most of the cost efficiencies associated with cloud. 

 

How to make the most of IoT

A lot is said about IoT enabling the 'products-to-service' transformation and more and more products being offered as a service rather than sold. Hear examples of IoT operating at scale and discover how you can make the most of IoT.
