Ask yourself this question: What are simple use-cases for which my organization can leverage the cloud immediately? If you cannot answer the question, then we recommend you attend the conference.

We have room for 250 attendees only so RSVP today; you can always change your mind later (though we hope you won't do so). Attendance is free for NoCOUG members (individual and corporate). The detailed agenda will be posted soon. Click here to register for the conference.

    P.S. The day before the conference, there will be an in-depth workshop and hands-on labs on the Amazon cloud (AWS). Seating for that event is limited to 30. Click here to register for the workshop.
