BOISE — As small and medium businesses across Idaho grapple with COVID-19, demand for remote working and cybersecurity solutions have surged. CloudNuance, a new Boise-based cloud-computing provider, is hosting a free seminar on the subject Aug. 27 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the real and virtual worlds.
The Riverside Hotel in Boise at 2900 W. Chinden Blvd. is the real-world site — with lunch and beverages provided in a socially distanced setting — and the company will stream the event live.
“Many small and medium businesses are struggling to adapt to the new normal and remote working,” CloudNuance president Dylan Lawless said. “And many of them are using on-premise email solutions, which are costly, require in-house expertise, and are inherently insecure. This seminar will help set businesses on the right path to overcoming these challenges by presenting strategies for moving their businesses to the cloud.”
Lawless said the seminar is the first in a series CloudNuance plans to stage over the upcoming months. Topics for future sessions include remote collaboration environments and managing hybrid cloud environments.
He said the benefits of moving to the cloud for small and medium businesses are myriad, and many are relevant to the pandemic.
“COVID-19 is reshaping every aspect of our society,” Lawless said. “Remote working offers certainty amid these times of great uncertainty. Not only does it mean teams can collaborate from anywhere, it can be done securely and efficiently. Businesses are not returning to their offices, as they are realizing the savings on commercial space. I foresee this as becoming the new normal.”
