Going global with your cloud-based business? Ireland can help!

Ireland is ‘Open for Business’, ready to help cloud-based companies from across the globe to excel in their sector and reach European markets efficiently and effectively. If you are a large or small organization, thinking of setting up in Europe, this event is for you!

Almost 1,000 companies – including some of the world’s best known brands, across all sectors – have chosen Ireland as the hub of their European networks because of the winning combination Ireland offers them.

Worldwide cloud services revenue is expected to reach $150 billion over the next four years. Ireland is well positioned to contribute to this growth with predictions that Ireland could create almost 20,000 jobs as a world leader in cloud computing adding €9.5 billion to the Irish economy by 2014. Leading cloud players already in Ireland include Microsoft, IBM, Salesforce, D&B, Accenture, CITI, EMC, SAS and Amazon.
