Demystifying the cloud at COBIS conference in Portugal
13/02/2017 14:04:08 | Danny Yeow
This COBIS-inspired two day training and networking event provided delegates with a plethora of presentations from experts within the education and business sectors.
Antonio Vilhena, Head of Finance and Business Operations at hosts, St Julian’s School, Portugal, reminded us that Britain remains the flagship for influences within the international marketplace, and due to the extensive experience WCBS has with international schools, we were asked to deliver a presentation around integrated solutions, data security and demystifying ‘the cloud’.
WCBS recently conducted a survey in partnership with the International School Consultancy, in which it was found that nearly 60% of respondents cited linking with other school systems one of their main challenges – and by the positive reaction I had from my audience, I can say that the survey is spot-on.
The audience included some of our customers, providing back-up to my explanation of how WCBS addresses integration and the issues around security – but of particular interest was explaining what ‘the cloud’ really is, and how it relates specifically to schools.
I referenced a number of resources including a piece I wrote for Global Insights – read more here.
This was a brilliant event with engaging delegates, and I came away with invitations to speak further to several schools.
Anyone who would like more information on my presentation, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
