Moving to the Cloud
Our guest speakers – to get the conversation flowing – will be Jon Voigt, co-founder and CTO of Agility Inc. and Joel Varty, Agility’s Director of Research and Development.
Agility is a Cloud Content Management System for media sites and agencies. www.agilitycms.com. For Agility, the benefits to moving to the cloud were obvious – lower monthly costs, no hardware maintenance, etc. The trick was in the little details of actually getting things transitioned, and then dealing with the differences once the changeover happened. Jon and Joel will tell you their story of the past 2 years from dipping their toes in the waters of the cloud, to fully immersing their business in it.
The YTA Cloud Computing Peer group is designed for executives and managers of software and services companies who are providing cloud based offerings to the market. The sessions will be business focused and will concentrate on topics that are relevant to operating and growing a cloud based business. Each session will include a guest speaker – either a customer that has transformed their business by leveraging cloud based offerings or an executive from a software or services company that is transitioning their organization to take advantage of the opportunities in the cloud. It will then be followed by a peer/group discussion on how to leverage these insights to drive profitability in your business.
The Cloud Computing Peer group will be held on the second Friday of every month and its facilitator is Muneer Hirji, President of 3.0 Corp. Please reach out to Muneer at Muneer.email@example.com if you would like to join.
