 I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now!

Clouds!  The Joni Mitchell hit, sung by Judy Collins in 1968, may reflect what you think about your business computing plans.

You probably think that you have heard all there is to hear about clouds!… But  there may be a different way at looking at this area of computing.

The CIO Round Table on October 1st will be an opportunity to discuss cloud computing and MS Office 365 from a different and unique perspective.

Corey Roberts of Daymark will look at the fundamentals, as well as the do’s and don’ts of real life cloud implementations. In addition Greg Watson of Insight will raise and address concerns we face in the adoption of MS Office 365.

Microsoft Office 365, the quintessential cloud application, is being considered as the next significant upgrade by a large number of organizations as they venture in the cloud arena.

Come along to the CIO Round Table and participate in a review of topics covering:  application toolsets, hosted and local footprint architectures, mobile adoption concerns, license bundling, pricing,  and Microsoft drivers on negotiation  of terms.

We will look at this application offering and explore the reasoning behind Microsoft’s shift in licensing from Enterprise Agreements to Select Agreements and the Microsoft Professional Services Agreements. We will also explore legal concerns such as intellectual property, ownership, warranty, license transfers, termination clauses, contract amendments, etc., and discuss contractually limiting Microsoft to hosting MS Office 365 on USA friendly soil.   

Here is an opportunity to learn and participate in a very exciting and interactive meeting and share your 365 implementation experience with CIOs who are just starting this journey.
