my talk on cloud infrastructure for Business Intelligence projects

Last week I had the opportunity to talk in front of a group of CFOs of the north-east of Italy. It was interesting to understand, from a technical perspective, the point of view of people more close to the business. It has been a great moment of learning for me. My speech was focused on the benefits of cloud computing adoption, and also a person from Microsoft Italy delivered a session on Microsoft strategy for the Business Analytics area. Let me thank BI Factory, who has organized the event, everything was great, including food! :) :) Slides of my session are available here Ciao! Francesco @francedit
