Since the start of the Covid pandemic, remote work has become reality for millions of people globally. As a direct result of this, businesses and their employees worldwide are facing the challenge of maintaining business continuity.
To address this issue, Cloud Computing has emerged as a saviour. By providing remote computing resources and services over a network, Cloud Computing supports companies in their business processes saving them from the capital and operational costs of maintaining varying IT resources and facilitating a remote workforce to stay connected with each other and therefore, enabling a more efficient collaboration among team members.
This new Cork Smart Gateway webinar will present two proud Cork companies: CloudCIX, a Cloud Computing services provider that will showcase the solutions that this technology is capable of, and WorkVivo, a company that has developed an employee communication platform and that utilises Cloud Computing as a core technology for its success. Additionally, this online session will introduce work by two academic partners of the Cork Smart Gateway. The first presentation will be from the Nimbus Research Centre at MTU and the second from the School of Computer Science and IT at UCC. The presentations will address the adoption of Cloud Computing in different technology areas such as Fintech and how Cloud Computing helps small companies who are not able to afford an IT department.
