Reducing costs and energy consumption with a new IT model
How can your tenancy address the energy use of onsite data/server rooms? Or is it safer and more cost efficient to transition completely to cloud-based computing?
Signatories and interested potential signatories are invited to join this free workshop to hear from experts from CitySwitch signatories, Wood & Grieve Engineers and Lavan Legal discussing the merits of upgrading existing IT capacities versus transitioning to cloud-based computing.
Cloud-based computing ticks a lot of the boxes but why are many organisations still fearing the “cloud” and holding back? Can cloud-based systems help IT teams meet the significantly increased expectations of clients, the business and users whilst keeping budgets under control? Can the cloud help reduce your electricity use? Join the workshop to find out the answer to these questions and more.
