IRISH INDUSTRY LEADERS LINE UP FOR FREE CONFERENCE ON DOING BUSINESS IN THE CLOUD

Dublin City University team up with Microsoft to host the free National Conference on Cloud Computing and Commerce as part of National Cloud Week.

17 April 2012:

DCU invites Irish technology decision makers, entrepreneurs, SMEs and start-ups to the Helix, DCU for Get Digital: The National Conference on Cloud Computing and Commerce. This free event will take place on 25th April between 1pm and 6pm. 15 business leaders and experts will speak on cloud computing and the commercial opportunities for Irish businesses and the Irish economy. Cloud computing is one of the fastest growing segments and a significant part of the overall market for information technology and services and can reduce both the upfront and maintenance costs for ICT in most businesses.

Speakers include Paul Rellis (Managing Director, Microsoft Ireland), Colm Lyon, (CEO, Realex), Mark Kellett (CEO, Magnet Networks), Professor John Mooney (Pepperdine University), Anthony Quigney (Director, Dell Solutions Centres) and technology entrepreneur, Sean O’Sullivan, Ireland’s newest “Dragon”. Attendees will also benefit from insights from panelists from PayPal, 3V, Sage Ireland and Deloitte, amongst others.

“Ireland is fortunate to have so many leading cloud companies based here. With the establishment of the Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce and events like this conference and National Cloud Week, we will help position Ireland for future job growth and innovation, at home and abroad,” said Dr. Theo Lynn, Principal Investigator and Business Research Theme Leader at the Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce. “As Ireland’s ‘University of Enterprise’, DCU is both committed to the Cloud and university-industry collaboration which is reflected in the speakers from both industry and academia at the National Conference on Cloud Computing and Commerce.”

The conference is being held by Dublin City University, with the support of Microsoft as part of National Cloud Week. National Cloud Week has been designed by Microsoft to further raise awareness of the role that Cloud Computing can play in helping to drive economic growth, support job creation and to deliver savings and efficiencies in both the public and private sector in Ireland.
Commenting on National Cloud Week and the conference at Dublin City University, Paul Rellis, Managing Director, Microsoft Ireland said: “By creating a week of activities designed to raise awareness and educate further about the relevance of Cloud to businesses, in education, to the non- profit sector and the public sector we hope that it will bring renewed momentum to the adoption of Cloud in Ireland. We’re delighted to be working with Dublin City University in the lead up to the week and to support their plans to host a conference focused on Cloud Computing. I’d encourage business people, large or small, to register and avail of the information from the cloud experts speaking on the day – it’s going to be a very informative event.”

The event is organised by Techspectations, DCU Business School’s digital outreach programme, and the new Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce, both located at DCU Business School, and is supported by Microsoft and North Dublin Chamber of Commerce.

The National Conference on Cloud Computing is free of charge and open to the public. Places are limited. For further details and to register, visit www.nc4.ie.
