MANCHESTER, N.H., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Escalating demands for ever more efficient and agile services have placed heightened pressure on data center and Infrastructure & Operations (I&O) organizations.  CIOs concerned with the best ways to enable business growth are looking to leverage mobility, cloud services, storage innovations, virtualization and more.  At the same time, data center and I&O leaders are being asked to optimize costs, all while modernizing legacy environments.

DataCenter Insights (DCI) will be held November 3 - 5 at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego.  DCI is an invitation-only, hosted summit designed for senior IT and business executives who want to understand how current and future technology trends will impact their data center vision and strategies.  DCI is not a trade show or traditional conference.  Rather, it's a world-class, three-day networking and business information exchange where a select group of 75 guests from leading enterprises attend to share experiences and learn from industry leaders. 

"Eaton's goal is to engineer data centers that help customers meet critical challenges - today and in the future.  At DataCenter Insights we look forward to engaging directly with senior level executives to demonstrate the business value of viewing your data center as an integrated system, and how this approach helps ensure interoperability, reduce risk and provide a safer, more reliable environment." stated John Collins, Global Data Center Segment Director at Eaton.

Attendees will meet and learn from a virtual "who's who" in the data center space through a conference program led by Jerry Murphy, Global Director of IT Infrastructure Services Consulting for Cognizant and a team of key advisory board members and speakers.  They will provide the depth of knowledge and expertise that meets the requirements of data center professionals across disciplines. Advisory Board members include:

  • Jerry Murphy (Conference Chair), Global Director, IT Infrastructure Services Consulting, Cognizant Technology Solutions
  • Glenn O'Donnell, Principle Analyst, Forrester Research
  • Richard Villars, Vice President, Datacenter & Cloud, IDC
  • Cal Braunstein, Chairman & CEO/Chief Research Officer, Robert Frances Group
  • Zeus Kerravala, Founder and Principal Analyst, ZK Research

The agenda focuses on the business impacts of IT transformation, addressing today's issues, trends, technologies and solutions.  End user panel members will tell about the successes and challenges encountered when implementing new technology and services.  Some topics that will be covered include:

  • Disruptive technologies
  • Transformation business cases
  • People and culture
  • Funding the change (Purchase, Lease, Cloud, etc.)
  • The new data center models (Software Defined Data Centers, Asset vs. Usage, Development vs. Operations Driven, etc.) 
  • Enterprise mobility
  • Cloud computing issues and strategies
  • Virtualization
  • Cost optimization
  • Business Continuity Management (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) Issues

"IT leaders are under tremendous budget and time pressures. They are being asked to embrace new technology and adapt to new business models, while at the same time reducing IT spend. The dizzying array of choices data center leaders are presented with make it difficult to effectively navigate this tumultuous landscape. This conference will help present a clear way to look at these challenges and provide a comprehensive roadmap for effective data center transformation", stated Conference Chair Jerry Murphy, Global Director for IT Infrastructure Consulting for Cognizant. "The agenda addresses today's issues, trends, technologies and solutions for attendees, while also building in the networking and direct dialogue sponsors need to have to understand and build relationships with these decision-makers."
