Vega Technology Demystify the Cloud event, and Launch of Acumen 365 and DigiHub
‘The cloud is here to stay, so be ready to embrace it’, was the key message at the seminar for Trust Professionals we held at the OGH yesterday.
Guernsey based Vega Technology hosted a ‘Demystifying the Cloud’ seminar which brought together experts from across the Channel Islands to help explain to non-IT personnel what cloud computing is, how it works and why it is important to the future of financial services.
Paul Every from Jersey-based Solitaire Consulting gave an overview of the types of cloud; public, private and hybrid, and Dan Brown from Resolution IT dived deeper into how the infrastructure can work. This was followed by David Collings from hosts Vega Technology, who used product specific examples, including the cloud-based Acumen 365, to show the benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Vega's new product DigiHub.
Commenting on the event, David said “This was our first event on this topic and it went very well. It is always difficult to know where to pitch seminars as there can be such a broad range of experiences in the room, but from the comments we received I think we got it about right. Most have gone away with a better insight in to how and why business should use the cloud, but even those for whom we may have generated more questions than answers will have taken away the main messages that Paul, Dan and myself all agreed on, which are - the cloud is here to stay, so be ready to embrace it; think cloud first but don’t move for the sake of it and above all, get good advice, it will save you time and money!”
We will be looking to build on the success of this event with further seminars in both Guernsey and Jersey
