Jun 22 Business Breakfast: Computing in the Cloud: Misconceptions and Reality

Speaker: Brian Gravel, Vice President of Media Production at GraVoc Associates

Host: NSK, Inc.

Registration and Networking begin at 7 a.m.; Program at 7:45.

Description

Although cloud computing has been around for a while, misconceptions still abound about what exactly it is and who is using it. In fact, 54 percent of Americans say they never use it while in reality, 95 percent actually do.

Today, the cloud is ubiquitous on both a personal and professional level – with almost every business, both small and large, using it in some capacity. The local innovation community is leading the way in terms of leveraging the cloud to cut down on infrastructure, increase scalability, and unleash elastic computing power. Brian Gravel, Vice President of Media Production at GraVoc Associates of Peabody, MA, will discuss how the cloud is being used, particularly in the high-tech and life sciences sectors, as well as the pros and cons of adopting a cloud solution.
