Reg Live TV Lots of you are considering cloud apps, but find it hard to figure out what’s most important when making decisions. We’re here today to help with that.

We've brought you Regcasts on IaaS and PaaS, but this time we're going to talk in more detail about integrating business apps: CRM, HCM, ERP. We hate hype at the Reg, but we think there's a new mindset and a new way of working on the horizon that just might save your sanity.

Why? Because as well as the obvious benefits of cloud, these apps allow you to concentrate customisation where it has a benefit. They mean you can ban "bespoke" apps and plug into a common architecture to take advantage of economies of scale, but customise based on policy and workflow to increase efficiency.

It's continuous innovation that controls cost and makes the process of adopting and updating business apps manageable.

Joining us in the all-new Reg studio on 5 June are Annrai O’Toole from Workday and Dale Vile from Freeform Dynamics, both of whom have been involved with more pre-cloud business apps installations than they want to remember. The Reg's Tim Phillips will be keeping them honest and getting straight answers for your questions.
