risual and Microsoft would like to host you at this inspirational location to show how Windows Azure can do the same for your University.


The revolution being that Cloud Computing is one of the biggest industry changes we have seen in decades. Harnessing the potential to massively scale key University applications in line with the academic timetable at the press of a button, and only paying for what you use. Developing a Hybrid service approach can reduce cost, pressure on data centre capacities, storage growth and back up & DR costs - all key concerns in the HE sector.

Without the Capex investment up front, and to save cost overall, requires a clear strategy around embracing such solutions into your existing infrastructure. risual will deliver a structured plan to demonstrate how to achieve your goals, and truly realise the potential that Windows Azure can bring to your University.


Alongside specialist Business Intelligence (BI) partner Ridgian, we will show how to make Cloud services a fundamental part of your IT infrastructure also pairing this with delivering business value, no matter how large the requirement.


Be inspired by joining us, Microsoft Education Cloud Specialists and other sector IT decision Makers on Tuesday 7th May 2013 for a full day of interesting discussion, which will include a full tour of this important sporting location, along with a sit down two course lunch and hospitality.
