Event Description:

The rapid pace of technological innovation and the explosion of data worldwide are impacting companies globally. CIO’s and their internal IT teams are faced with balancing the demands of adding more business applications, processes, servers combined with increased regulatory requirements, and operational efficiencies.

The impact of these demands on the data center is complex. CIO’s don’t have a crystal ball to predict the amount of data center space they will need, or will not need, over the next 5-10 years. The decision to build or expand a data center is a gamble. Attend November's Council Connect to learn the options of managing your data center requirements, long-term. Understand all the cost and risk associated with building a data versus leveraging a colocation provider.

Who Should Attend
CIO's, CTO's, VP's of IT, directors of IT. Any company that is reassessing their data center strategy.
