SLOUGH, England, October 20, 2010 - International solutions provider, Logicalis (www.uk.logicalis.com/
), today announced that Chris Gabriel, director of solutions, is to address
delegates at Public Sector Enterprise ICT 2010 (
www.publicsectorict.co.uk/index.html), on the opportunity, challenges
and value of cloud. The event, which tackles strategic change and efficiency
in public sector ICT, will be held on Thursday 4th November at the Inmarsat
Conference Centre in London.

Co-hosted with Chris Rae, director of solution sales at CA Technologies,
the presentation will use case study examples from the public sector to
dispel the myths and answer the key questions associated with cloud,
including: is cloud the platform for future public sector ICT consolidation?
Is cloud secure enough to hold sensitive data? Is cloud suitable for large
scale public sector adoption? Is cloud a tactical technology fix or a
strategic government platform?

    What:    "The cloud is the answer. It's also the question."
    Who:     Chris Gabriel, director of solutions, Logicalis
             Chris Rae, director solution sales. CA Technologies
    When:    10am Thursday 4th November
    Where:   Public Sector Enterprise ICT
             Inmarsat Conference Centre, London

Speaker abstract: Consolidating the myriad of public sector data centres
onto Cloud is now not only a national IT initiative but ever more a local and
regional budget priority. The answer might be cloud; the question is what,
how and when can Cloud start to deliver value to public services. This
presentation will attempt to answer those questions and provide actual use
cases not futurologist predictions.
