Presented by Grant Thornton LLP

“Moving to “the Cloud” – is your Company Ready?”

Brian Eccher, Principal, Technology Solutions Practice, Grant Thornton LLP

Cloud computing is no longer a “trend” or a “disruptor” – it is the reality of enterprise technology, and it is here to stay.  Companies of all sizes, across industries and across the globe, are leveraging the cloud to operate more efficiently, achieve growth, reduce costs and provide a better experience to their employees and clients.

Brian’s presentation will walk through how you can evaluate if the cloud is right for your business.  Included in the discussion will be the economics and financial impacts, a framework to identify those areas of the business which are “cloud ready”, and guiding principles for a successful implementation.
