On November 10th Island Networks hosted the latest in their series of Executive Briefings entitled ‘Supercharge Your Cloud’ in the Conrad Hotel in Dublin.
The briefing was attended by a large audience of CIO’s and business leaders who heard presentations from the cloud infrastructure technology leaders Cisco Systems, Pure Storage, Red Hat and Citrix, about how organisations can supercharge their clouds by implementing an agile IT infrastructure using the latest in flash storage and Open Source and Cloud software solutions.
Two further guest speakers also presented to the audience – one was John Lucas from ASE Global, who presented on his experiences in using the technology presented earlier.
The second guest speaker was Leo Moore from William Fry Solicitors, who presented on the General Data Protection Regulations, the most significant data protection regulations in over twenty years, which will come into effect in 2018 and will require significant changes for every organisation who stores personal data about EU citizens in order to be compliant.
Feedback on the briefing was very positive and we are looking forward to the next Executive Briefing in 2017.
