Connected Cloud & DC Edge 2019 | 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.
