OVERVIEW:

It’s been nearly a year since our last discussion on cloud computing, and Microsoft’s new CEO, Satya Nadella, has emphasized a cloud-first (as well as mobile-first) ethos for the company. So if you’ve been wondering about the state of cloud computing, we’ll shed even more light on the topic. At our next IT KAN meeting we will review principles of the cloud and then discuss its adoption, creative applications, and a specific case or company profile where it’s made a significant business impact.

The next meeting will be:

August 14, 2014, 5-7PM 
Aon Tower
 
Microsoft Technology Center
, 2nd floor
 
200 E Randolph St
 
Chicago, IL 60601

Same time and place each month

Microsoft Technology Center, 2nd floor of Aon Tower 
2nd Th. 5-7PM
