Meet Azure, Your Next Data Center

Bill WilderIt is nearly impossible to find a company today that does not rely on the cloud, at least for applications like email, CRM, or document management. But the cloud want more of your workloads, including all of your applications and databases and more. In this talk, join long-time Azure MVP Bill Wilder, founder of Boston Azure, book author (Cloud Architecture Patterns, O’Reilly Media, 2012), and CTO of Finomial (a born-in-the-cloud SaaS company serving the hedge fund industry), for an overview of what the Azure cloud offers – and why it will increasingly make business sense for you to make it your data center.

Bio:

Bill Wilder is a cloud computing veteran, with deep expertise in the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Since 2014, Bill has been CTO at Finomial, an early stage SaaS company serving the global hedge fund industry from the cloud. Prior to that, Bill consulted as a hands-on architect to giant corporations (including Microsoft), mid-sized companies, and startups, helping them execute on the cloud by providing architecture guidance, Azure training, and custom development. Bill began working with the Azure cloud platform the day it was unveiled at the Microsoft PDC in 2008 and subsequently founded, in October 2009, Boston Azure, the oldest Azure-focused community user group in the world. Bill is the author of the book Cloud Architecture Patterns (O’Reilly Media, 2012) which explains patterns and concepts core to understanding how to most effectively use public cloud platforms such as those from Microsoft, Amazon, and Google. Bill is recognized by Microsoft as a Microsoft Azure MVP, a reflection of his Azure cloud expertise – and his willingness to share it.

The meetings start with a 15-minute President’s Forum, which includes club business, technology information, and “Members Asking Members” which is an open floor for IT problems and solutions. A guest speaker follows this. We have an IT expert or a technical representative of a major manufacturer do presentations and sometimes club members.

IT-Pro User Group has a listserv to help our members stay in touch. It allows members to seek help from other members on tough questions. Special announcements and meeting reminders also channel through it.

IT-Pro User Group meetings are open to all IT professionals and others interested in IT technologies.
