Collaboration – with so many different systems and platforms available how do we ensure our communications are efficient effective and easy to use for our co-workers, customers and business partners whilst maintaining scalability, audit and accountability and return on investment for the organisation.
Data Centre – in the age of the cloud, what is the importance and practicality of the data centre. How can on and off premise resources scale and converge to facilitate the changing business demands of our applications and business data?
