Using blade systems to cut costs and sharpen efficiencies

On Demand On June 23rd Reg Broadcast Editor Tim Phillips was 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 business apps.

Our Freeform Dynamics friend Andrew Buss and Grant Tanner from Star, also joined the round table discussion and gave their perspective on these, arguably, new challenges.

Show Notes

Care UK has started creeping into cloud and James kindly agreed to join us to share his experiences.

He explained:

  • How they made decisions on which apps to move to the cloud.
  • Why there were certain apps he decided to leave for another day.
  • The apps that would never hit the cloud.

If you're in the midst of these decisions yourself, or likely to be shortly, you may wish to watch the broadcast at your own leisure, using our free on demand edition that is now avaiable. Click through here to access it.
