Why should your business be in the Cloud and using Social Media?

This free event is targeted at business and technology managers and leaders who are considering the use of Social Media and Cloud Computing within their organisation.

The event will be introduced and chaired by Tim Pullen, Managing Director of Cloud Consulting Ltd. Tim has over 30 years experience of working at the leading edge of business technology. In addition to managing his company he has run and chaired more than 10 Cloud events this year.
Prior to the main presentation Richie Bowden, Owner, RB Consulting and a Founder Director of EuroCloud Ireland will discuss the importance of having a social media strategy and outline a simple methodology for creating such a strategy.
Niall Carey and Joe McNally from Salesforce.com will present an overview of how collaborative business working and interaction with social media is a key component of Salesforce.com’s application and strategy. Later they will demonstrate Chatter – collaborative business networking that comes as standard in the Salesforce.com application.
Following this will be Hugh Jones from CastleBridge Associates who will discuss the importance of managing risk on the Cloud and consider the extent to which companies pay attention to the actual information. You are warned that this session is likely to be very challenging and Hugh will highlight many of the legal and governance pitfalls that we are all too likely to fall into chasing the hyped up Cloud.
The event will include a case study from Paul Bacon, Director of CPL Northern Ireland. Paul is a leading business figure with extensive experience of using Cloud technologies. CPL are a major European recruitment agency with considerable experience of using social media as part of their core business and who are leading the way in their industry as early adopters of Cloud technology in order to drive competitive advantage.
There will be a panel session allowing you to put questions on Cloud Computing and Social Media to the experts. We would also like you to tell us about your own experiences and how you are using these technologies within your own business.
