Please note that the early bird rate of 200€ is available until the end of January. The cost from the 1st February onwards will be 250€.

  3. investigating the convergence of on-premise architectures and the Cloud;

  4. how to set up, initiate, and audit the metrics of a preservation project;

  5. key global project updates; and

  6. solution provider and end customer collaboration.
