Manchester-based Cloud Technology Solutions (CTS) has announced it will be hosting fortnightly cloud surgeries for businesses in the North West after all places at their latest ‘Next Special’ Google Cloud Platform (GCP) User Group Meetup booked out.
Considered the thought-leader in the GCP space, CTS is hosting the hotly anticipated GCP Meetup event at Plant NOMA, Manchester, a week after the Google Cloud Next conference in San Francisco. The event will look at covering some of the news, releases and updates that come out of the three day Google Cloud Next exhibition, as well as giving attendees a greater understanding of everything that GCP has to offer.
Attending on the day will be Google customer engineer, Ian Pattison, discussing what some of the new releases will mean for customers, with a particular focus on the retail sector. Joining him will be GCP engineer at CTS, Adam Wood, looking at some of the technical releases revealed at Google Next and touching on exciting developments with a live demo.
Finally, Shaun Hall, Head of R&S and DevOps at The Hut Group, will be looking at how they use GCP to power recommendations, personalisation and test analysis on their websites – a network of ecommerce sites that gets 15 million hits per day.
For those who were unable to obtain a place at the coveted meetup, CTS is launching a free fortnightly ‘Cloud Surgery’, giving organisations the chance to come along for a chat, keep up with developments in the industry, and have all of their cloud technology questions answered. The Cloud Surgery will enable businesses to discuss everything and anything cloud tech related, from productivity and collaboration with G Suite and Chrome hardware, to scalable infrastructure and innovative big data with GCP. Plus, guidance on complementary cloud software solutions from CTS’s raft of technology partners.
With drinks and pizza upon arrival, the first Cloud Surgery will take a place at CTS’ offices at Lowry House, 17 Marble Street, Manchester, on Friday 3 August from 1pm to 4pm. To attend, search ‘Cloud Technology Solutions Cloud Surgery’ or visit the website.
Speaking about the new Cloud Surgery, CEO and co-founder, James Doggart, said:
“We’re delighted to be launching this new initiative and hope these Cloud Surgeries will help organisations further develop knowledge and understanding of everything that cloud technology has to offer. We wanted to make these workshops free so that they’re as accessible as possible to businesses of all sizes.”
Founded 10 years ago, CTS provides cloud transformation solutions to a broad range of organisations. The Google Premier Partner has migrated over 7 million users to the cloud including, most recently, Manchester City Council and Homeserve.
