Selling Cloud to the Board

Date: 26th Mar 2014

Venue: Quo Vadis, 26-29 Dean St, London W1D 3LL

Join us for an evening of fine dining and excellence at the restaurant that's got the foodies in a froth this week. Quo Vadis is a beauteous Soho establishment that has passed through various stellar owners over the years. It's now in the care of Sam and Eddie Hart, whose Fino and Barrafina are brilliant and unfussy.

Cost savings, scalability, elasticity, greater user control, speed, easier upgrades and flexibility. The list of benefits of the cloud - public, private or hybrid - is impressive. But is it enough to sell it to the board? Is it enough to convince the business to change the way it 'does' IT?

Moreover, just how robust are those benefits when put to the test? Replacing upfront capital expense with pay-as-you-go operational expense sounds enticing but some are questioning the reality.

Meanwhile, security remains the elephant in the room. While CIOs might be satisfied that the integrity of the data they manage is not at risk, can they convince the CEO and the rest of the board?

Join us at this CBR Dining Club, in association with Citrix, and find out how to make the most compelling case for the Cloud. It promises to be an evening of networking, expert talks and stimulating conversation
