Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Live Today Today at 11:00 BST Reg editor Tim Phillips is joined by Reg reader James Greenman, Group IT Director at Care UK, to talk about where, when and why cloud might make sense for your apps.

Care UK has started creeping into cloud and James has kindly agreed to join us to share his experiences. He'll explain what Care UK has done, how they made the decisions on which apps to move to the cloud, which apps he decided to leave for another day and which ones will never hit the cloud.

Tim and James are joined by Andrew Buss, from our friends Freeform Dynamics, and Grant Tanner from Star, who'll give their perspective on these, arguably, new challenges.

If you're in the midst of these decisions yourself, or likely to be shortly, you may wish to join us. The broadcast is live today and we'll be taking questions from the floor. So come prepared with any outstanding issues we might be able to help clear up for you.

This Regcast is free and you can register to attend right here. If you can't make the live show register now then we can email you when the recorded version is available. ®
