Intergence announce dates for ‘IT Optimisation health check’ seminars
Government’s G-Cloud supplier to discuss confidentiality and security in the cloud
9 March 2012: Cloud computing, as with any new technology, requires strategic and insightful planning to ensure that sensitive data remains secure. Data security is just one of the topics that will be covered by Intergence, one of the UK’s leading independent IT Optimisation Consultancy, at the company’s IT Optimisation health check seminars being held in Leeds, London and Edinburgh during May 2012.
Intergence has recently been appointed as one of the suppliers of the UK Government’s cloud computing procurement initiative, G-Cloud and also works with many of the UK’s blue chip companies.
The health check seminars will explain how to optimise and fine tune an organisation’s infrastructure to best take advantage of cloud technology.
The first seminar will be held in Leeds at The Queen’s Hotel on 9 May, followed by a second event at the Royal College of Surgeons in London on 11 May, concluding in Edinburgh at The Radisson Blu Hotel on 16 May.
According to Peter Job, Chief Executive Office at Intergence, before jumping into the cloud, organisations must take a look at its current assets and review how they can be optimised. Taking a new approach and carrying out a full health check prior to taking the leap to the cloud will save time and money by starting to plan a cloud migration strategy. He explains, “The health check seminar will cover security of data and applications within the cloud with a focus on how businesses can ensure their data remains confidential and secure. The seminars will also examine how compliance can be maintained with local data protection requirements regarding where and how the data is held.”
Peter Job is joined by Robert Smith, Chief Operating Officer at Intergence, Steve Turner, VP of Optimisation and Rupert Ogilvie, Optimisation Consultant, who collectively will be covering the following important topics:
• How to overcome the challenges of managing the huge amount of data that virtualisation and cloud computing are creating.
• How to troubleshoot virtual networks and convince the business that applications are safe in the cloud.
• How Hyperglance, a ground breaking 3D network visualisation software product, can bring IT and facilities management together to cut costs and reduce carbon emissions.
• Evolution and optimisation of the data centre.
• Seeing through the fog of the cloud.
