Maximizing cloud computing for small business — securely Posted on October 10, 2011 by Tim Burke This Wednesday — October 12 — I’ll be participating in the Small Business Technology Tour that’s coming to Salt Lake City, UT, where I’ll be talking about how cloud computing can boost small business productivity and help keep your operations secure. I’ll be joined by a couple of other experts, and together we’ll talk about the benefits of cloud computing for small businesses: why and how cloud computing can reduce your capital expenditures, help you spend less on IT operations, provide you access to the deep resources and skills of a reliable cloud services provider, and improve your IT security, privacy, and availability. Cloud computing for small business: the Small Business Technology Tour features a full-day agenda of leading small business and technology experts, who will share insights, lead discussions, and demonstrate to attendees how they can harness technology to save time and money, boost productivity, increase revenue, and serve customers better in today’s challenging business climate. The Salt Lake City leg of the Small Business Technology Tour will get underway bright and early at the Miller Business Resource Center of Salt Lake Community College (9750 South 300 West, Sandy, UT 84070).
