Expanding Minds announces "OnRamp to Cloud in 48," a half-day technology and strategy class teaching business people how to take immediate advantage of cloud computing. The first session, "Cloud Simplified - How Anyone Can Run Their Business in the Cloud," demonstrates how to build and run a business with minimal up-front costs using a variety of cloud technologies. "Unlike other classes you've taken before," says founder Taylor Banks, "this isn't just a technical lecture, this is an interactive event driven almost entirely by real-world demonstrations. At OnRamp, we’ll be selecting several members from the audience to help cloud-enable their businesses live during the event!"

"Cloud - A CIO’s Perspective," delivers insight from a CIO into how the cloud is changing IT for small and medium businesses. This session presents world solutions to common business problems using cloud technologies. "We're going to teach you what cloud really means to your business, in basic terms of dollars and cents," says co-founder Adam Bregenzer. Bregenzer and Banks explain that having saved their own companies and customers millions of dollars over the past 4 years with virtualization and cloud computing, the next step is enabling an even larger audience to benefit from their knowledge and experience.

The final session, "Cloud Security Demystified," will teach attendees specifically how to overcome many of the security concerns slowing organizations interested in adopting cloud. Says Bregenzer, “If you are interested in the cloud but concerned about how to do it securely, this is the session for you.”

Instructors Adam Bregenzer and Taylor Banks are recognized leaders in the computer security industry. They have an established track record of enabling businesses, enterprise customers, and government organizations to leverage virtualization and cloud in their daily operations.

The Expanding Minds Initiative is an Atlanta-based business focused on evolutionary business education. Their 2-day seminar, Zero to Cloud in 48 Hours, is being offered in Hawaii in April of 2011 and Atlanta in Q3 2011. Check http://Cloudin48.com/ for additional details.
