On Cloud Nine: The Best Cloud Events of 2018

11 April 2018 by Jenn Granger

This year has been a rip-roaring year so far when it comes to events– our team have been zipping off all over the country, getting the best up-to-date info on the latest innovations. And one topic has been dominating the tech landscape far more than any other.

Cloud technology is the platform driving business expansion, desk-less working and the rise of AI.

Without cloud, it’s fair to say that we’d be stuck in the past. Cloud is a clear driver of tech evolution. With that in mind, it seems only right to sum up what we’ve learned so far this year.

Take a look at some of the best cloud events of 2018 so far…

Cloud UK Live

This highly-anticipated event was one we had been seriously looking forward to.

On both 7th and 14th March we welcomed some of the largest names in cloud technology for Cloud UK Live and the room was buzzing with fresh info and ideas. Held at two venues – one in both Manchester and London – the event brought real-world examples of how cloud has the potential to change both business and the world.

Paul Papadimitriou, CEO of innovation scouting firm Intelligencr, has shared a stage with Barack Obama and Steve Wozniak and was our energetic keynote speaker for the day. We followed his fast-talking into the quickly-paced realm of cloud and gained top insight from industry professionals.

Take a look at some of the highlights.

Cloud & Automation

We delved into the world of cloud automation in our webinar. Cloud automation is the umbrella term to describe the processes and tools that an organisation uses to reduce the manual efforts associated with managing cloud computing workloads. The UKFast webinar looked at:

  • How cloud adoption and automation improves business efficiency
  • The challenges around automation in the workplace
  • Cloud and automation developments for 2018

Cloud Expo

The European cloud highlight of the year! Cloud Expo is THE place to speak to the experts about your company’s solution, get 1-2-1 advice and network with top companies from around the continent.

Our double-decker stand certainly stood out, perhaps thanks to the  racing track that we threw in to boot!

Cloud Expo is always a perfect opportunity to catch up with our partners and to grow your business network – it’s also great fun.

Watch the top tips from one of our partners at the event.

We spoke to our partner, Avanti Kenjalkar Sane of VMware, who gave us the facts, stats and what to hope for in the future of IoT:

There’s no doubt that cloud is up there as a hot tech topic of 2018 – watch this space for more events heading your way soon!
