DatacenterDynamics has announced it is radically consolidating and expanding its U.S. events program. Together with a significant evolution of its conference program it will transform nine one-day regional-market events to three much larger-scale two-day conferences focused on the three primary data center vertical classes: Enterprise, Internet, and Services.
March 17/18, 2015
New York Marriott Marquis
Meeting the needs of the enterprise data center community of end-users and operators dealing with the increasingly complex and heterogeneous mission critical environment.
July 30/31, 2015
San Francisco Marriott Marquis
Meeting the needs of the internet data center community of end-users and operators tracking the retail, wholesale and hyper scale continuum.
October 27/28, 2015
Meeting the needs of the growing data center service provider community and how they provision next generation services from cloud to everything as a service.
Each Converged event is a comprehensive multi-track conference produced in order to drive collaborative thinking on the most important topics that face the industry. Tracks include:
Focused on helping senior strategists understand the implications of IT and Network transformation on data center design and architecture.
Focused on the issues faced by professionals who manage the performance, efficiency and resilience of the critical environment.
Focused on the issues faced by senior decision makers responsible for the organizational strategy and design of on-premise data centers.
Focused on issues faced by professionals that manage blended/ hybrid infrastructures and the technical/regulatory challenges of delivering critical ICT through the cloud.
Focused on helping professionals tasked with assessing the risk and managing the security of evermore-distributed mission critical infrastructure and ICT systems.
“Taking a leaf out of the data center handbook, we are consolidating up into bigger, bolder and deeper events with a strong vertical focus. This is what the data center community now needs,” said George Rockett, recently appointed CEO of DCD Group and DatacenterDynamics founder.
“‘Converged Decision Making’, is a mega trend which underpins these product changes. It reflects the fact that all corporate IT infrastructure decisions are interconnected and inseparably interdependent — for example, a data center’s network technology choices will now influence how and where you will build that next data center, or whether you will even need to,” he added.
Bruce Taylor, formally of the Uptime Institute/451 Reserach and recently appointed executive vice-president of DCD North America said: “I am extremely excited at the prospect of helping DatacenterDynamics to yet again transform the data center industry with this new winning strategy.”
“It is refreshing to be part of a truly dynamic organization which has the talent, ideas and stamina to provide data centers with a new strategic direction in a time of difficult transition. DatacenterDynamics is considered by many leading data center professionals as an ‘intelligence engine’ for the data center industry; I think this new program is another giant step forward.”
