Connected Cloud & DC Edge 2020 | Gold Coast

CCDC Edge 2020
Interconnectivity, Resilience and the Hybrid Future

Join 400 of our region’s largest IT, compute, and cloud users; along with their leading service providers, co-los and data centre operators.

Collaborate over two days of strategic shared experience, peer networking, tactical introductions and global insights – at a vital period in our region’s commercial history.

Now in our 8th year and established as the region’s #1 strategic gathering, our 2020 focus will be use cases, examples and advice from those ahead on the same journey.

 

The challenge

Everything must be more resilient and responsive to the needs of the emerging data-driven and digital organisation. The best IT strategy however, is only as good as the connectivity, cost, performance and latency of your digital infrastructure.

This 4th industrial revolution will drive the biggest transformations in the IT infrastructure ecosystem – architected across multiple clouds, networks, data centres, and out to the intelligent edge.

 

Legacy and change

Everyone has an inherited history of technical debt and IT footprint that runs their business, often in conflict with experimental models to deliver new digital services. How can you blend the two environments: service the existing, yet still experiment and be compliant?

With such pace of change, limited resources and competing strategic and operational objectives:

  • How do you plan resilience today for the future of IT and emerging technologies?
  • Preparing for the hybrid and cloud-centric future?
  • 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?

As always, the event will have global guest speakers, aligned keynotes and panels, several private boardroom roundtable workshops, our interactive exhibition floor – and two tracks: Cloud Centric World & Future Data Centre.

2020: An additional sub-agenda focus on purpose & skills

More than ever we must focus on the personal and organisational capabilities needed for success. The days of ‘roles’ are disappearing, as future IT is about the skills to execute on next generation of platforms and clearer objective based management.

To shift to a better frameworks and cloud options, you must establish the right overarching guidance for your organisation to thrive. But are you heard? Do you get the support you need? How can you?

  • What capabilities, language and skills must you to evolve to remain relevant?
  • How do you better align your ideas and communicate with key stakeholders?
  • How can you reduce costs and deliver projects on time and to expectation?
  • How to get buy in for the right outcomes and take everyone on the journey?
  • How to prioritise demands, and manage roadblocks?

Our agenda will be published in November 2019. Please register below to qualify to attend ADAPT Connected Cloud & DC Edge 2020.

CLOUD CENTRIC WORLD


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. These two days will 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 cloud centric world.

FUTURE DATA CENTRE


Global local data centre & engineering expertise

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



With 90% of our data created in the last 2 years, we expect to grow from 33 zettabytes in 2018 to 175 ZB by 2025. That’s vastly more traffic than current data centres and clouds can handle, and we have already seen more outages in the last 12 months than ever before.

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

With 80% 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?

These two days will equip you to lead through this change, and connect you with your national peers to debate the best strategies and tactics for operational efficiency at cost.

Inside the Edge


Why invest


Meet the Industry Leaders ADAPT own relationships with thousands of executive decision makers, and our platforms enable introductions to the C-level to access, engage and create opportunities.
Differentiate from the Crowd Too many vendors jostle for attention in a crowded, commoditised market. Creative packages frame your strength, values and executives with the right people, to initiate and fast track opportunities.
Intelligent Matching ADAPT surveys and intelligently matches delegate investment priorities and needs to solution providers capabilities, ensuring 1-1 meetings are based on a real demand from both sides.
