I would like to invite you to attend this Private Cloud online event
The definition, business value, and technology benefits of the "the cloud" have been hotly debated in recent months. Most agree that cloud computing can accelerate innovation, reduce costs, and increase business agility in the market. In 2012, cloud computing will transition from hype and discussion, to part of every enterprise's reality, and IT is uniquely positioned to lead this transformation and help business reap the benefits of cloud computing. To help you get real-world answers, I'd like to invite you to an interactive virtual event designed to help you explore your cloud options. Plus, you'll be among the first to hear the latest private cloud news from Microsoft.
Transforming IT with Microsoft Private Cloud Tuesday 17 January 2012 16:30-18:30 (Ireland Time)
Here's what we have planned:
• Hear from other senior IT professionals about how cloud computing can help you gain maximum competitive advantage with minimal risk.
• Learn about Microsoft cloud offerings, including private, public, and hybrid cloud models.
• Experience Microsoft private cloud solutions through the Microsoft Technology Centre.
More and more customers are turning to Hyper-V as their first choice for virtualisation.
Come along and find out why; Hyper-V has grown up a lot over the last three years and now includes the core functionality you need to meet your business and technical requirements.
This session is a unique presentation that builds on your existing experience with virtualisation (regardless of hypervisor) and will equip you with up to date skills through in-depth, advanced, real world training that is not available anywhere else!
As a standalone, one day immersion into Hyper-V or as the first step towards certification from Microsoft Ireland, this is a not to miss opportunity!

Held annually on January 28th, Data Privacy Day (DPD) aims to increase awareness of privacy and data protection issues among consumers, organizations, and government officials. DPD helps industry, academia, and advocates to highlight consumer privacy efforts.
Microsoft commissioned some great research that included 500 Irish Adults and 500 Irish Children.
The results are very interesting – and are summarised in a neat little video.
As are the associated resources that are published along with the survey.
Take Charge of Your Online Reputation is a really good two pager that highlights what the problem is and what you can do about it.
So, let’s all spend some time this Saturday thinking about the data privacy issues that affect us. If you’ve got kids online, then they really need a helping hand.
