MicrosoftIOIf you aren't aware of what Infrastructure Optimisation is, or what it's all about, chances are, you could be missing a trick - a trick that really could boost sales for your business.  At a high level, it's about ensuring a business is moving from a very static, basic infrastructure, through to a proactive, dynamic infrastructure.  There is a great 10 minute explanatory video here, along with a whole host of information on Infrastructure Optimisation, at the MicrosoftIO website.

There are also a whole host of PowerPoint presentations, white papers and so on, all at this site - I'd highly recommend taking a look if you get the chance.

So, below you'll find a number of courses taking place in Reading over the next couple of months, and best of all, they're free, so if you know nothing about IO, or you'd like to learn more, at least it's only going to cost you your time - and it may turn out to be a very worthy investment indeed.  If you can't attend in person, flip down to the bottom for some online courses.
