Ali Harris
Technical Framework
Ali has been providing technology services to small- and medium- sized businesses in Northern Colorado for more than 20 years.

Chris Munger
Technical Framework
Chris has worked in the IT industry for 30 years with organizations as large as the U.S. Department of Defense and as small as a one-attorney office. With half of his career spent as a systems engineer and network administrator and half in IT consulting, Chris honed a 360-degree perspective on the IT needs and challenges of small- and medium-sized organizations. He recognizes that they are as dependent on a wide mix of technology as the largest organizations, but don’t have the same depth of support to draw on. Topics of discussion include:
• Overview of key “cloud” vendors and services many organizations are relying upon today
• How to start leveraging “the cloud” appropriately
