CCSU School of Business
Central Connecticut State University’s (CCSU) School of Business, in collaboration with the Office of Continuing Education, was pleased to offer a free webinar titled, ‘Cloud Computing: Maximizing Your Investment.’ This webinar was open to alumni, students, and other stakeholders interested in learning more about cloud computing.
Technology is integrated into the DNA of business and of society itself. One of the most recent entrants is the cloud. The cloud has entered into our everyday discussions and become a technological force that we must deal with, and when we consider the cloud, mobile computing, business intelligence and big data together, we arrive at an ever- increasingly complex puzzle. This webinar will put those pieces together. A review of what the cloud is (and what it isn’t) will be followed by a discussion of how the cloud can be used to maximize your investment in technology.

He has an active LinkedIn and Twitter presence and is a regular contributor to the blog at www.AllAnalytics.com.
