Poole, Dorset, United Kingdom, 2010/11/04 - Held in conjunction with Microsoft at Blue Chip’s offices in Southampton, this interactive workshop aims to assist professionals in the financial arena to understand how the computing environment can be optimised to deliver major savings.
On December 2nd, IT specialist, Blue Chip is hosting a ‘Cost Saving Workshop’ to give financial directors, business owners and IT managers a clear insight into how they can save money through using tried and tested technology, whilst also reducing the carbon footprint of their business.
Held in conjunction with Microsoft at Blue Chip’s offices in Southampton, this interactive workshop is free of charge and aims to assist professionals in the financial arena to understand how the computing environment can be optimised to deliver major savings.
Anthony Green at Blue Chip explains: “To many financial directors and business owners, information technology is still a ‘dark art’ when it comes to assessing its value vs. cost, yet in these prudent times, these are the very people who are undertaking cost reviews and making cost-reducing decisions, ‘sweating assets’ and monitoring vital cash flow.”
He continues: “Having worked in partnership with Greenocity, specialists in ‘green and efficient IT’, for customers of all sizes and across many different sectors, our collection of techniques, tools and technologies has already revealed where costs can be reduced. We know that IT departments can leak money; this workshop is all about showing FDs, IT managers and business owners how to find that leak, and plug it for good.”
Taking place between 2.00-4.30pm on Thursday December 2nd at Blue Chip’s offices at Carlton Crescent, Southampton SO15 2EU, the Cost Saving Workshop will cover: identifying inefficiencies in the desktop environment; realise measurable savings though technology sets, applications and power saving; supply and demand in the data centre – where the money goes; improving efficiency through design, cooling techniques, virtualisation, hosting and cloud computing; and how to identify and minimize printing wastage – network vs workgroups, follow me/biometric technologies and other key indicators.
