A Morning Seminar: Cloud Metrics – The Key KPIs for Scalable and Profitable Success
Time: 8.30 am to 13.30 pm, Tuesday, 5 March 2013
Venue: Gibson Hotel, Point Village, Dublin 1
The continued forecast growth of the IT global market presents a very significant opportunity for the Irish Software Industry. The advent and take-up of Cloud Computing in particular, changes the landscape for software delivery in the future and opens up global potential for Irish companies. The challenge will be how companies respond to the market drivers, identify and quantify opportunities and develop technologies and business models to exploit them to the full.
The focus of this seminar is on how Cloud based software companies need to embed the best practise financial metrics on both a day-to-day and Board level to ensure long term growth and scale.
Cash strapped software companies will only have one real chance to get it right when they go to market with their Cloud products. Having a detailed understanding of these metrics, starting with Cost of Customer Acquisition, is fundamental if there is to be any chance of success.
Enterprise Ireland invites you to participate in a seminar in Dublin on Tuesday the 5th March 2013 from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm to understand more about the financial metrics for the Cloud business model.
