Connected Cloud & DC Edge 2021

Connected Cloud & Data Centre Edge 2021

Delivering Resiliency and Agility across the Distributed Organisation

 

Now in our 9th year, at a vital period in our region’s commercial history, join ADAPT’s annual gathering of Australia’s largest IT, compute, and cloud users – alongside their leading service providers, clouds, co-los and data centre operators.

 

Our Challenge

The modern enterprise was already under incredible pressure to maintain growth and innovation at an exponential pace, with IT trying to keep up with business goals and expectations, while delivering seamless user experiences.

Now the pandemic has driven years of digital transformation in months, and our IT teams and digital infrastructure have flexed to enable it. Technology has been the glue keeping business together, putting IT and infrastructure leaders at the core of every organisation’s ability to respond and recover.

ADAPT’s latest research suggests local organisations will continue to have over 40% of their staff WFH indefinitely even after the pandemic.

All organisations need to optimise their infrastructure and environments to enable an indefinitely distributed workforce.

  • Will this sea change demand ‘remote first’ policy and new architecture considerations?
  • How can we enable the consistent data, agility, security and performance the organisation demands?
  • How do you optimise and modernise existing technology investments?

At CCDC 2021, gather with the strategic leaders in charge of our nation’s digital infrastructure and cloud enablement to learn from use cases, examples and advice from those ahead on similar journeys.

 

To match your busy workloads, CCDC 2021 will be a focused 1-day event, without our usual exhibition floor.

Our Agenda and Speakers will publish in November.

 

Critical areas to debate will include:

  1. Delivering resilient application, compute, network and storage workloads across hybrid environments.
  2. Architecting an interconnected and agile digital infrastructure capable of pivoting when needed.
  3. Reducing operating and infrastructure costs, while managing demand and service delivery.
  4. Enabling modernisation, data analytics and DevOps teams with consistent agility and faster processing.
  5. Getting TCO and cloud economics right to avoid migration and operational cost problems.
  6. Managing dependencies, sprawl, data consistency and reducing process complexity.
  7. Meeting and mitigating sovereignty, governance, compliance and security goals.
  8. Navigating multi-cloud and migrating mission critical apps, while reducing refactoring time and costs.
  9. Right sizing IT to avoid wasted redundancy; and moving from on-prem to free up resources and real estate.
  10. Leveraging proven emerging technology to deliver on efficiency goals and enable meaningful innovation.

The Bottom Line
Everything must be ever more responsive to needs of the emerging data-driven, distributed digital organisation.

As we transition to this extraordinary new world, we continue to see the biggest transformations in the IT infrastructure ecosystem – architected across multiple clouds, networks, data centres, and out to the intelligent edge.

The best IT strategy however, is only as good as the connectivity, cost, performance and latency of your digital infrastructure.

 

Attendance is by invitation only

Join us at CCDC to debate the new world, to collaborate through peer networking, tactical introductions and global insights.

As always, ADAPT will host epic global and local expert speakers, several private boardroom roundtable workshops, peer networking and aligned partner meetings.

Cloud Centric & Hybrid Future


Use cases and fact-based insights to deliver resilient IT across multiple clouds

For our Chief Architects, Heads of IT and Cloud:

Most of ADAPT’s community already struggle to maintain existing operations and legacy workloads, while adapting to assess the emerging technologies demanded or introduced by the business.

Organisations may be migrating to hybrid cloud, but still need to maintain their own compute, network, storage footprint, whilst create an over-arching cloud strategy for best practice operational IT models.

To enable all this change, we must increase our ability and relevance by shortening our skills and knowledge gaps. Attending CCDC will help equip and empower you to lead through this change, and connect you with your national peers to debate the best strategies and tactics for a hybrid cloud centric world.

- How do you plan resilience today for the future of IT and emerging technologies?
- How to ensure past decisions don’t stop experimentation and innovation in the future?
- How to avoid creating tomorrow’s legacy challenges with today’s tech decisions?
- How to move existing IT workloads into the next generation of connected capabilities?

Future Data Centre & Edge


Global/local data centre & engineering expertise

For our Engineering Data Centre leaders, Operators, Co-Los & Service Providers:

For our Engineering Data Centre leaders, Operators, Co-Los & Service Providers: There’s vastly more traffic than current data centres and clouds can handle, and we have already seen more outages in the last 24 months than ever before. Now we see massive shift off prem. The pandemic prompted organisations to move their servers off-prem to colos and DCs where third parties can easier access and manage them – this trend will not reverse.

The challenges to design, deploy, and scale the facilities to house all this digital infrastructure and deliver the services are huge.

With most reduction in energy losses already achieved, facing increasing rack density and cooling challenges, and with new operational and management complexities of hybrid IT, and edge inbound - where will future efficiencies come from?

Attending CCDC will help equip you to lead through this change, connecting you with your national peers to debate the best strategies and tactics for operational efficiency at cost.
