ntitled “
Web 2.0: How to utilize the latest
web evolution for your business
”, the Seminar will
focus on future IT
trends that small and medium businesses should be aware of in order to

The guest speaker is

The Seminar is being organised in order to give businesses in County
Wicklow a snapshot of the most up to date technology the
y could be using
to help their businesses be more profitable and successful. Damien will
discuss the concept of “Web 2.0” (pronounced ‘Web two’). The term ‘Web
2.0’ is
used to describe the trend in the use of worldwide web technology
and web design that
aims to increase interaction amongst users. It is
often referred to as a business revolution in the computer industry
because businesses can now use tools such as social networking, feed
readers and website alerts to build a better relationship with their

customers online, and to significantly increase sales.

Damien will introduce the audience to concepts such as ‘Where 2.0’


the
big trend that the new iP
hone will set off. It means that everything we do
will be location specific


every email and
text
we s
end will have GPS co
-
ordinates
attached. He will also talk about ‘the Cloud’



the future of data
storage.
Amazon, Google, HP,
and Microsoft are

centres where data will be stored, which means that h
ard drives for
iPhones and lap
tops will get smaller
(
as
people will be able to access all

content wirelessly
)
.

Another interesting concept is the move from
keypads to gestures, pioneered by Apple who
has

brought touchscreens
and touchpads into the mainstream. Damien will also review
tools such as
Google Alerts, Feed Readers, Digg, Delicious, Bebo and Facebook


and
how they can improve your business. The Seminar will be delivered in a
practical, straightforward style. Plenty of time will be set aside for
questions and answers.
