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.”

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.
