Consumers’ knowledge of cloud is a double-edged sword for most solutions providers. As the old adage goes, most of your customers probably know “just enough to be dangerous” when it comes to cloud solutions. We’ve talked before about your responsibility to take control of your customers’ cloud strategy, including educating them about the impact of cloud within their businesses. For those of you in Southern California, Ingram Micro has a little help lined up.
On Monday, Nov. 28, Ingram Micro and Chapman University will host a cloud computing symposium on the Chapman campus in Orange, CA. During the half day (4 to 7 p.m.) educational event, the two organizations will bring together top cloud computing experts from Ingram Micro, Appirio, KnowledgeCentrix and Chapman University. The group will offer insight about how businesses are harnessing the power of cloud computing to drive new technological advancements, speed innovation, and save money.
Among those speaking are: Dean Menas Kafatos, Chapman University; Renee Bergeron, VP of Managed Services and Cloud Computing, Ingram Micro; and Mario Leone, EVP and CIO, Ingram Micro; as well as Narinder Singh, CSO, Appirio; and Chris Andreozzi, President, KnowledgeCentrix.
This symposium is open to business owners and decision makers as well as IT professionals, so feel free to attend yourself, or better yet, bring some of our customers so they can hear about the power of cloud from some of the top experts in the field.
