  • Amido sets the agenda for 2017 to cater for a strong focus in managing data compliancy legislation with GDPR, Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and User Managed Authorisation (UMA) Protocol

London, U.K., 3rd January 2017 – Amido, a vendor-agnostic, independent technical consultancy specialising in assembling and integrating proven cloud technologies, has taken to the slopes with its first-ever ID and Ski Conference for its team of highly skilled engineers. As all industry sectors continue to embrace the flexibility the cloud can offer in regards to data management, analysis and storage, Amido’s ID and Ski conference allows its staff to benefit from a more invigorating learning of Amido’s 2017 strategy.

The focus of the conference is on Identity, one of Amido’s main service lines. 2017 will see a significant rise in industry sectors demanding for a more affordable approach to data management, specifically tied to UMA Protocol, GDPR and PII. The looming deadline of May 2018 will force businesses of all sizes to review their technology strategies and data management policies. Amido’s approach and experience in consolidating, managing and protecting data will see a significant rise in demand to help companies meet legislation as well as improve current technology practices tied to Identity.

Alan Walsh, CEO of Amido, adds: “All industries are going to be affected by GDPR, UMA Protocol and PII – no one is immune to this change. Therefore, it is important for our team to address these policies with knowledge and enthusiasm – because no goal is unachievable for our engineers. How we as customers interact with a brand has changed monumentally and will continue to do so. It is why companies need to embrace the identity of its consumers; and do so seriously, especially if it to survive this digitalised world.”

The ID and Ski Conference is to be held in the town of St Johann im Pongau, Austria, during the weekend of the 12th – 15th January.
