If you are wondering what all the fuss about Cloud Computing is, and whether it is just yet more IT vendor hype or maybe something that might actually deliver tangible benefits to your business, then do come along to Intellect UK’s SaaS (software as a service) seminar in London on Thursday 15 July.
Although there will be some Cloud vendors talking (such as Really Simple Systems Hosted CRM), there will also be a panel of users, analysts and lawyers to put a more balanced view on things.

In a rare example of cross-vendor cooperation all the major UK vendors of Software as a Service products have got together under the auspices on Intellect, the body that represents the UK IT industry, and published a really useful and thorough document entitled “The business case for Software as a Service”. The publication is aimed at senior directors and business managers rather than IT directors, and explains why they should be looking at how SaaS applications will give their business better service and more flexibility at a lower cost than traditional in-house systems.
You can download the document from www.reallysimplesystems.com/IntellectSaaSReport.asp.

There’s lots of Cloud activity about to happen in Europe this month.
Firstly Intellect, the UK trade association for the IT industry, is launching its first paper on cloud computing, “The business case for Software as a Service”, tomorrow, 28th October at their offices in London. I’m on the SaaS steering committee and have helped draft the paper, so I can recommend it!
Next, a bunch of SaaS vendors are forming EuroCloud, a community of SaaS vendors working in Europe, represented in the UK by Phil Wainewright. The organisation will promote SaaS technology across Europe to EC and national governments.
Looks like a cloudy Autumn – in a positive way!
