Exhibition: Cloud Expo Europe 2014

26 Feb, 2014 - 27 Feb, 2014, Excel, London, E16 1XL

Cloud Expo Europe is the compelling “how to” event for businesses and public sector organisations – big and small – seeking to deliver effective cloud strategies on time and on budget.

At this year's show, Claranet will walk you through the journey to the cloud.

Most businesses aspire to move their IT to the cloud, but their applications are often trapped in older technologies and legacy systems. And few businesses can afford to make a wholesale move to the cloud. Instead, they need to take an interim / hybrid approach to their IT infrastructure – be it their external-facing apps or their internal-facing IT.

Join us to get an early preview of how Claranet is exploiting new technology to address customer needs.

Come to one of Claranet's presentation:

Direct from the Claranet hosting lab. Demonstrating customer-focused innovation.
Wed 26th Feb, 13:45 – 14:10 – Management, Services & Applications theatre
Whilst the cloud is ever popular as a concept, we understand that in reality, most Customers are not in a position to fully adopt it. Join industry experts Mark Wilson and Andrew Audsley to get an early preview of how Claranet are bridging the gap between the reality of today and promise of tomorrow.

Adoption trends: why thinking application first matters.
Wed 26th Feb – 16:10 – 16:40 – Keynote theatre
Presented by Michel Robert, Claranet UK MD, and Richard Thomas, NetEvidence CEO

Webinar: Be prepared for email migration in 2014 - 10 minute talk + live Q&A

11 Dec, 2013, Online

According to ZDnet, hosted email deployments grew by 4% in the last 12 months, from 42% up to 46%. This is a clear indication that more and more organisations are choosing to migrate their email platforms to the secure and cost-effective environment of the cloud.

Additionally, on-premise email installations shrank by 3% indicating that while many organisations are still opting for an on-premise email configuration, IT decision makers are beginning to understand the benefits of cloud hosted email.
Part of the reason everyone isnt moving to cloud hosted email instantly is that there's more than one way to do it. Decision makers need to ask themselves "what cloud solution do I go for, hosted or managed exchange, Office 365, Gmail?"

What we'll be covering in the webinar:
Which way to turn? Do you choose public, private or hybrid? What package best suits your organisation size? Office 365, Google Gmail, Microsoft Exchange?

More than just email: Organisations need a solution that is reliable, cost-effective and easy to manage 24x7, without having to worry about up-keep and end of life support dates.

Migration matters: Considerations such as; migration support, speed, AD support and peace of mind.

Webinar: Communication overload?

20 Jun, 2013, Online

In this webinar Product Manager Steve Eveleigh explains why you should consider unified communications for your business and what to look out for to make sure its implementation is a success.

A successful unified communications project can have quite an impact on your business.

By ensuring your users have access to the best communication tools they are able to do their jobs better.

It also means you don’t need to worry about the maintenance of these systems in-house – with experts ensuring your users enjoy the best unified email, telephony and collaboration facilities 24/7.

However, 80% of unified communications projects aren’t successful, mostly because businesses and their technology partners do not do the necessary preparation.
