UKFast’s flagship cloud technology event – Cloud UK Live – returns later this month with a heavyweight lineup of tech experts assembled to help attendees understand how cloud makes businesses faster, safer and more efficient.
World-leading tech pioneer and TedTalks speaker Inma Martinez is set to deliver the headline keynote. Considered by Fortune and Time as one of the world's leading digital media strategists, Martinez advises governments and private corporations on how to address their digital challenges.
Cloud UK Live’s twin events run at UKFast Campus in Manchester on Wednesday March 19th and at The Shard in London on March 20th.
The line-up also includes Dr Chris Folkerd, Director of Enterprise Technologies at UKFast, and UKFast’s director of enterprise technology Chris Folkerd, Paul Mason, IT Security, Education and Training Specialist at Secarma and Matt Bibby, MD of ClearCloud.
The event focusses on emerging cloud technologies, business transformation, multicloud environments, cybersecurity in the cloud and big data and analytics. Attendees have the opportunity of a one-to-one cloud consultation with solutions architects to design a cloud environment bespoke to their organisation’s needs.
UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones said: “Cloud is transforming business. Cloud UK Live is about putting people in the best possible position to understand if cloud is for them and how they can get the best results from it. Of course, cybersecurity is a major question for all of the businesses we talk to, so we’ll be offering plenty of practical security advice to set them on the right track.
“New and evolving technologies open up incredible business opportunities, but companies need an understanding of how tech – like cloud, automation and AI – fits into their operations and how it can help them. It’s the same with any project; you have to have the right tools to deliver the job.
“Ultimately, collaboration is the key to achieving our long-term goal of making Manchester the number one tech city in the UK. We’re bringing together some amazing speakers at the event, both from UKFast and from further afield, to share their knowledge and advise as many people as possible. There’s a huge buzz around tech here in the city and it’s incredibly exciting.”
Cloud UK Live is in partnership with HPE Cloud28+, an open community of cloud service providers, solution providers, ISVs, systems integrators, distributors, and government entities dedicated to accelerating Cloud adoption around the globe.
