Organisers of CeBIT Australia 2012 are encouraging SMEs to attend the event, which kicks off today and runs through to Thursday, to get a better understanding of the possibilities of cloud computing and explore how it could help their business cut down on their IT spend.
To be held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre from Tuesday May 22 to Thursday May 24, organisers say CeBIT Australia 2012 will offer a one-stop shop that will allow SMEs to gain knowledge and know-how from experts in their field to help them ramp up their tech knowledge and save their business time and money.
“These experts will be able to explain in simple and plain terms how cloud technology will benefit a business and why it will increase performance and save money - a concept seemingly unattainable to most SMEs,” CeBIT organisers said in a press release. “A recent Symantec survey discovered that only 15 per cent of Australian businesses have migrated to cloud, but they simply don’t have enough information or understanding.
“The reality is that most business owners or managers simply do not have the time or resources to understand the difficult concepts that come with the constant advancement with technologies.”
CeBIT 2012 Australia’s theme is “Trust and Security”, an issue facing all businesses today, as more and more processes are moved into cloud.
“Cloud technologies are the way of the future, but there are still reservations about its adoption because of security questions,” CeBIT Australia Managing Director Jackie Taranto said. “CeBIT 2012 will focus heavily on cloud, both in the Exhibition and in the Conference schedule. I can confidently say that anyone contemplating the future of cloud technologies will find everything they need to know under one roof in May.”
