iomart will launch a new campaign to help businesses transform how they work in the cloud at Cloud Europe on 11th March at ExCel London

GLASGOW, SCOTLAND – February 27, 2015 – / — ‘SavetheCloud365’ will showcase how using iomart can help customers use Office 365, the all-inclusive productivity solution that delivers familiar Office applications coupled with powerful enterprise class communications and collaboration capabilities across your tablet, PC and phone.

The campaign is being launched on Stand 220 with iomart’s own King of the IT Jungle, ‘I’m a Celebrity….Get Me Out Of Here’ contestant and football pundit Jimmy Bullard.  Jimmy will be on the stand from 11am to 1pm on the opening day of Cloud Expo Europe alongside experts from iomart and Microsoft who will explain how easy it is to migrate to and manage Office 365.

Phil Worms, Chief Marketing Officer for iomart, says, “Jimmy survived in the jungle in Australia by being resourceful and learning to operate remotely from his friends and family. To survive the modern IT jungle that’s what a business has to do and what Office 365 allows you to do is take your office on the road so you can operate a lot smarter.”

iomart has been chosen by Microsoft as a Tier 1 partner for its Cloud Solution Provider Programme in Europe. This means can fully support Office 365 for customers via managed technical support and control the entire billing process.

iomart is partnering with the environmental charity Rainforest Concern which works to protect the threatened Cloud Forest in Ecuador for the campaign. For every Office 365 licence sold by iomart, a donation will be made to the charity to help it secure more land in the Choco Andean Corridor in north west Ecuador. Rangers working for the charity in the Cloud Forest will be given tablets loaded with Office 365 to enable them to work better and smarter.

Peter Bennett, Executive Director and Founder of Rainforest Concern, says, “We’re delighted that iomart is supporting us.  Ecuador is one of the most diverse regions for flora and fauna. The Ecuadorian forest is disappearing at a rate of over 200,000 hectares a year. We are working to stop this and maintain the landscape so the birds, animals and local people can all continue to survive.”

Microsoft’s vision is to empower people through technology and a cloud-first world and iomart has been chosen to help it achieve that.  iomart will provide the technical support management and expertise to support businesses who want to move to Office 365.

Bill Strain, Chief Technology Officer for iomart, says, “It’s hardly surprising that people compare the IT marketplace to a jungle. It can be a wild and untamed place to be and difficult to navigate without a knowledgeable guide.  It is this hypothetical wilderness that is leading more and more businesses to select a trusted and ‘cloud agnostic’ service provider like iomart to assist them on their journey to the cloud. Choosing an expert Cloud Service Provider who you can build a lasting relationship with and who has the expertise to deliver a variety of requirements ensures you can architect services to meet your exact business needs.”
