Computing in the Clouds

The word “cloud” has taken on a whole new meaning in today’s fast paced electronic world.  A cloud is more than what one sees floating in the sky.  It is also a “place” where one can store data and access it from any computer or cell phone with network capabilities.
Cloud computing as it is known has taken the IT world by storm, and the Aiken Chamber wants to help its members get on board and learn more about the latest technological phenomenon.
iBusiness 201: “ The Cloud” will be offered on Wednesday, November 7, from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at the Aiken Chamber.  The session will take a close look at the Cloud, what it is, the pros and cons, and how it may impact business.
The presenter is Joann Williamson, director of Network Systems, Infrastructure, and Architecture at USC Aiken.  Williamson, a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), plans and directs the development of the University’s network systems and technological infrastructure.
There will be a group discussion after Williamson’s presentation along with a Q&A session.
“With the fast pace of change in technology today, it is more important than ever to stay informed on how changes and new innovations will impact your business,”  said Dr. Deidre Martin, USC Aiken, chair of Business and Community Development for the Chamber.
“I encourage Chamber members to attend this session to make sure new technologies, such as cloud computing, work to your advantage as a key aspect of your plan for success,” she said.   

Sponsors of iBusiness 201: “The Cloud” are EDTS, LLC and Wayne’s Automotive and Towing Center.
