The DatacenterDynamics As‐A‐Service Conference and Expo, taking place at the Hilton Chicago on October 27-28, 2015, is the inaugural two-day leadership forum created to serve all stakeholders in the rapidly evolving ecosystem for data centers, outsourced IT, and cloud infrastructure and services. With DatacenterDynamics just‐published forecasts indicating enterprise spending on outsourcing will double to $57B in just five short years, progressive-minded senior executives and technology professionals keen to anticipate the future of the data center industry have every reason—economic and technological—to block out these two days on their fall calendars.
As George Rockett, DCD CEO and Co‐Founder, recently commented, “We’re in a period of ferocious change with no end in sight… the upshot is that in-house provision of IT capacity is increasingly being scrutinized and challenged as organizations seek to meet business growth and agility demands…”
Highlighting the event, renowned data center industry executive and “Cloudonomics” author, Joe Weinman, will deliver the opening keynote. Weinman will draw on his latest book, “Digital Disciplines: Attaining Market Leadership via the Cloud, Big Data, Social, Mobile, and the Internet of Things” (Wiley & Sons, 2015), to reveal the drivers galvanizing cloud computing.
Positioned to become the de-facto platform where over 1,500 professionals in an increasingly globalized sector will gather to explore how they can develop even more competitive infrastructure and services to enable the digital enterprise, DCD As-A-Service Conference and Expo will also comprise presentations and panels featuring an international roster of industry thought leaders and influencers.
Among the 70 presenters and panel members gracing the rostrum at DCD As-A-Service Conference and Expo are Tony Greenberg, Founder and CEO of RampRate; John Hughes, CBE, and the Executive Chairman of Telecity; Amaya Souarez, VP, Datacenter Systems & Security, CyrusOne; Maximilian Ahrens, Member of the Executive Board, Deutsche Börse Cloud Exchange; Hunter Newby, CEO, Allied Fiber; and Lisa Mandell, President & CEO, TrendPoint.
To hear Bruce Taylor, DCD Executive Vice President, tell it, “This conference will inspire conversations about both the obvious and the hidden factors transforming this ‘mud-to-cloud’ industry, as we move toward the true software-defined, data-driven data center.”
