Think Cloud Computing for Charities - London

Tuesday, 18 Oct 2016, 13:45 - 18:00


Cloud computing is a big trend within the not-for-profit sector allowing organisations to work in a more efficient way. The Think Cloud Computing training course will address key themes and trends from the world of cloud computing, providing an open view of its pros and cons.

This training course will not be highly technical and will pay special attention on the cost implications and implementation of cloud computing.

Topics covered are:

  • Definition and types of cloud
  • Cost including CapEx vs OpEx 
  • Security
  • Data protection 
  • Aspects to take into account before moving to the cloud, during and in case of leaving or changing provider 
  • Examples of what can go wrong and how to solve it

By the end of this course, attendees will:

  • Understand the pros and cons of moving to the cloud 
  • Be able to identify which cloud is best for their organisation, including the costs associated with it 
  • Understand the process they have to follow when adopting this technology

Who is the session aimed at? 

This course is ideal for both existing users of cloud, who want to keep up to date and those considering using cloud, who want to understand more about it. Especially designed for CEOs and FCOs who are either the decision maker or heavily involved in the decision making process.
