External IT, a cloud-based IT outsourcing firm that focuses on RIAs and Broker Dealers, is hosting an hour-long webinar on cloud solutions for financial advisors. Panelists from Microsoft, Nexus Strategy and External IT will provide a lively dialogue on building the financial services firm of the future today by using compliant cloud technologies and Office 365.

Participants in the webinar include Jason Perlow, Partner Technology Strategist at Microsoft and Justin Kapahi, Technical Director Financial Services Practice External IT and will be moderated by Tim Welsh, CEO and Founder of Nexus Strategy.

The webinar is engineered to speak to CEOs who are positioning their firms for growth, CCOs concerned with meeting the changing compliance requirements of the SEC, CTOs and COOs looking for technology refresh and advisors considering breaking away and are seeking a single solution for all their technology needs.

The webinar comes on the heels of an integration between External IT and Office 365, the first time the productivity suite has been compliant for the financial services sector. External IT and Office 365 complement each other by making it possible for users to seamlessly access the same IT experience wherever they happen to be working, on whatever device in the same workspace as their existing financial and business apps, without compromising their business. External IT provides firms with comprehensive customer service and support for their entire IT infrastructure and users.

"Technology is increasingly becoming the main driver of enhanced practice management and how firms are able to differentiate themselves," said VP of financial services at External IT, Sam Attias. "The only way to build a firm that's going to thrive in the future is to take advantage of significant technological innovations available today. Being able to take advantage of those innovations appropriately, however, takes an educated advisor to ensure a secure, compliant and seamless solution is implemented."

Attendees of the webinar will learn the difference between compliant and regular Cloud platforms, how External IT and Office 365 are changing the way people work, share and communicate; the benefits of cloud vs in-house for RIAs, Broker-Dealers and Asset Managers; and how a cloud solution is supported -- locally and remotely.

External IT's Cloud Desktop is the only cloud computing solution that integrates all of a firm's applications and data -- including web apps alongside hosted Windows, legacy, and custom software -- accessed and controlled simply in one place.

The webinar takes place on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 1pm. Register at this link.
