HCS Business Solutions and the South Eastern regional Chambers clear up the Cloud!

HCS Business Solutions, in association with Waterford, Clonmel and Carlow Chambers of Commerce, will host a series of free lunchtime seminars throughout February and March.

The seminars entitled “The practical applications of the Cloud – is your business ready?” is aimed at business owners and managers.

With ever changing developments in the IT sector, businesses are now moving towards cloud computing and the premise of these seminars is to demystify cloud computing and highlight how best it can work for local businesses.

Neil Phelan, Director of HCS Business Solutions said that the inevitability of cloud computing will mean that businesses will need to be prepared for the transition to the cloud.

“Technology has moved on so quickly. We moved from mainframe computing in the 70’s, to PC’s in the 80’s, the Internet and .com era of the 90’s and noughties, and now leveraging on the internet era the cloud is set up to take a big leap over the next decade.”

He added “That’s why adapting to developments in cloud technology enables companies to have greater data security, more flexibility in terms of functionality, easier and more reliable service along with notable cost saving benefits. Particularly in today’s tough trading climate, anything that positively impacts on productivity and reduces downtime is a real benefit for any business.”

The seminars will address questions such as “The Cloud and your business – are you ready?” and deal with the issue of how cloud computing can make business better. There will also be a demonstration of Microsoft Cloud Services.

These free events will take place in Waterford Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, February 15th; Clonmel Chamber of Commerce (Clonmel Park Hotel) on Thursday, February 23rd and County Carlow Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, March 7th.
