Printing Executive Seminar in Canada Explains Cloud Computing

Thursday, March 31, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Top three experts on cloud migration lead invitation-only executive briefings in Toronto; attendees choose either Friday, April 15 or Saturday, April 16 sessions. Domtar is a sponsor of the event. 

Toronto, Ontario – Printing technology expert Slava Apel and noted industry futurist Dr. Joe Webb are two of a trio of advisors with the latest perspectives about how printers can use cloud computing to improve their operations and customer experiences. Executives can hear all three experts on Friday, April 15 or Saturday, April 16 at the YEDI Business Acceleration Campus in downtown Toronto near the York University campus. Interested printing executives and owners can request an invitation at www.cloudproduction.com. Domtar is a sponsor of the event. 

During the seminar, executives will receive a practical and actionable review of cloud options and training courses that offer a path to more profitable printing operations enhanced by cloud technologies. Mr. Apel stated “These technologies can improve business strategy implementation and have a positive effect on the market value and investment attractiveness of a printing business.”

Dr. Joe Webb, author of the well-known printing strategy guide Disrupting the Future, said “Many of the everyday business applications printers use now have cloud versions. Migrating to the cloud has advantages that have not been available before, especially in connectivity, collaboration, ease of information access and sharing. Cloud is a lot more than storage or e-mail. It's a way of ensuring that technology investments are always current and relevant.”

Mr. Apel and Dr. Webb serve as advisors to Cloud Production Partners (cloudproduction.com), a company that manages the migration and coordinates the most important part of the process: training.

“Companies need training that’s right for them,” explained Mr. Apel. The company offers a choice of training formats including live on-site coaching, remote conferencing, customized videos, and other methods. “This approach accommodates business needs based on size, skill levels, budgets and time availability,” he explained.

The Executive Briefings on April 15 and 16

The briefing follows a logical flow of general cloud computing concepts and business applications, then focuses on specific printing business needs. Trainees will learn about competing cloud vendors, differences between cloud or SaaS or enterprise deployments, the range of price points, timing strategies for integration and migration, and ways different systems and processes connect. “Migrating to the cloud can be an opportunity to implement company change and adapt to new business opportunities. It requires thoughtful planning, but is in the reach of print businesses of all sizes,” said Dr. Webb.
