Financial Crisis and Cloud Computing: Delivering More for Less & ICTs for Women’s Empowerment

Financial Crisis and Cloud Computing deals with the relatively new technology of cloud computing, which means to provide a service not on a physical machine but as a service over the web. Solutions like that are highly scalable and ideally available anywhere anytime.

In the context of the Government Transformation initiative of the eDevelopment group, there are several issues connected to eGovernment which will be addressed during the workshop – data security, data portability, requirements, supply, …

More information on the event page (Financial Crisis and Cloud Computing: Delivering More for Less).

ICTs for Women’s Empowerment deals with gender issues in ICT4D and usage of ICTs. Also the government’s and the World Bank’s role is taken a closer loook upon.

More information on the event page (ICTs for Women’s Empowerment).

Both workshops take place on 16 June, Cloud Computing starts at 9 Washington time, Women’s Empowerment at 13:30 Washington time. You can register for the webcast on the eDevelopment events page.
