2 days with 350 major IT Users and Service Providers
Connected Cloud & DC Edge Event | Gold Coast
Over the coming years of this 4th industrial revolution, IT Infrastructure will have its biggest transformations – spanning across multiple clouds, enterprise networks, data centres, and out to the intelligent edge.
2019 Theme: Architecting Resilient Digital Infrastructure
The tech-enabled organisation needs speed, flexibility, resilience and operational transformation.
We must support this change as the new “digital business” unleashes a perfect storm:
- A secure mesh of interconnected services, content, people and smart things are always on.
- CX & App performance demands a dynamic fault-free digital infrastructure network.
- The shift to hybrid IT strategies uses more cloud and data centre resources.
- Cloud is now mainstream IT, bringing migration and governance challenges.
- IT workloads consume more dedicated storage, compute and network connectivity.
- Legacy must be retired or modernised to support agile, analytics, AI and emerging tech.
- IT must evolve to gateway as-a-Service brokering as the new enablers, not owners of IT.
- Multi-cloud, multi-tier, and software-defined are the approaches for IT architecture.
For our Technology Leaders:
Most organisations may be migrating to cloud, but still need to maintain their own compute, network, storage footprint, whilst create an over-arching cloud strategy for best practice IT operational models. These 2 days with us will equip and empower you to lead through this change.
For our value chain of Operators, Co-lo’s & Service Providers:
Your challenges to design, deploy, and scale the facilities to house all this digital infrastructure and deliver the services are huge. Join your industry peers and customers to look at the entire DC architecture and value chain and discuss ways to optimise and sustainably manage these issues as a community.
Join 350 of the executive leadership from our region’s largest IT, compute, and cloud users and providers for two days. of strategic global insights, shared experience, peer networking and tactical introductions
