The conference will focus on data center transformations and security.

(OSLO, Norway) -- Crayon Group Holding ASA (OSE: CRAYON), an expert in the digitalization journey, is hosting its annual Alliance conference that this year focuses on data center transformation, security in the cloud and emerging technologies.

The conference is Thursday, October 17 at Vulkan Arena in Oslo and is open to the public. Among the many presenters are those from Microsoft, which will discuss its new data center regions and their impact.

Microsoft`s new data center regions in Norway will help enterprises focus on their core business instead of whether their data is securely stored and with the right legislature,” said Crayon Norway CEO Geir Øivind Gulliksen. “These regions remove those concerns because the data will be stored locally and safely in the cloud.”

Crayon has unparalleled, deep experience in the cloud, as it is one of the select few Microsoft partners accredited with the Azure Expert MSP status.

“It is interesting to watch how Microsoft, which has long invested in global partners such as Crayon, is now investing with its local partners in the cloud,” said Crayon co-founder Rune Syversen. “We view this as a positive as the push for digitalization continues to accelerate, we are able to use our expertise in Azure to better guide local partners as well as our clients on best practices that we have honed through our years of experience.”

Another key topic at the conference is security amid enterprises’ journey to the cloud. One of the panels will feature Microsoft, Funn AS and Crayon’s cloud experts and will delve into myths, misapprehensions and challenges of moving to the cloud.

Others who are attending Alliance are Workplace by Facebook, VMware, TrendQuest, Checkpoint and Flexera.

In addition, technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine and deep learning, computer vision and IoT will also be discussed with a close look at the top trends heading into 2020 and how all businesses can easily take advantage of these best practices.
