Enabling Digital Shoreditch

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

  • Dan Sutherland

Friday 1st June, 2012

5:10pm to 5:15pm (GMT)

Over the past several months three Tech City organisations, Carrenza, Optimity and euNetworks, have been working in partnership to deliver the Intelligent Buildings programme to the City, delivering on-demand connectivity and compute resource over the LAN. In doing this we identified this also fits well for Digital Shoreditch, offering an ideal solution to addressing some of the major connectivity issues in the area, and in turn is ideal to support rapid growth. As a result we have formed The Shoreditch Network, a unique initiative from three likeminded organisations with the aim of providing the area with on-demand access to the latest technology, and therefore enabling Tech City in the 21st century. The Shoreditch Network initiative will also see the companies involved partner with local educational organisations, through offering internships and apprenticeships in their businesses to help drive the scheme. This talk, delivered by the CEO and owner of Carrenza, will discuss what we are doing and the benefits this will offer to organisations in Digital Shoreditch: * Reduced cost for IT * Flexible and cost effective - you can select the exact mix of services you require * Better focus of capital expenditure on those things that offer strategic value to your business * Eradicates the need for a server room in your office or an external data centre Questions answered : * What is The Shoreditch Network? * How does this improve the Shoreditch community? * How does this benefit the organisations in the community? * How can organisations better use technology to increase efficiencies and lower overheads?
