Al Stevens talks Cloud Computing at the NFAIS Annual Conference
Al's experience includes running a web-based service providing 24/7 access to an online data base for thousands of users around the world. He led the effort to move that service from a set of dedicated servers in a managed hosting center to a 100% cloud-based system.His talk will cover the motivations for considering the cloud, how a cloud-hosting service was selected, how the implementation was managed, the impacts it had on the organization and the lessons learned from moving into the cloud. Based on his real experience of making this move, he will provide advice for others who are considering or evaluating the use of cloud-computing in their organizations.
