(The Hosting News) – Business executives seeking to explore cloud computing solutions are invited and encouraged to attend a complimentary seminar on one of two days in November: November 16th at the Radisson Hotel in Roseville, Minnesota, or November 17th at VISI in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
VISI and Kraus Anderson Construction Company are co-sponsoring the seminar, entitled The Role of Cloud Computing In Your Data Center Strategy. The seminar is designed to provide business executives with valuable information regarding cloud computing. Topics include the “must knows” of cloud computing, public versus private clouds, and identifying how — and whether — to incorporate cloud computing into their own technology strategy.
The seminar’s featured speaker is Jeff Gilmer, a senior partner with Excipio Consulting. Gilmer has over 30 years of IT experience, and Excipio has completed hundreds of data center assessments for both public and private organizations ranging in size from 350 employees to over 100,000. Excipio’s clients include the States of Minnesota, Washington, Michigan and Pennsylvania, as well as private corporations such as US Bank, Carlson Companies, MD Anderson, Baxter Labs, Lowes and others.
“In the past year, we’re finding more companies adopting a ‘cloud first’ strategy,” said Gary Elfert, director of Products and Marketing at VISI. “This seminar will help business executives get up to speed on cloud computing and empower them to make informed decisions regarding cloud computing as it relates to their industry and business model.”
