The essential guide to IT transformation

The Register Agile Data Center Summit, a live interactive conference featuring analysis, insight and debate from experts at Freeform Dynamics, Dell, VMWare and Intel, beams live from Reg HQ on 15 September 5:30pm BST, 9:30am PST, 12:30am EST.

Registration is now open.

The Register Agile Data Center Summit begins with a review of common constraints that hold IT back, then moves on to discuss some specific objectives you might consider to creating a more dynamic data center environment. The potential gains in terms of cost savings, responsiveness and quality of service are very high, but the focus here will be on how to set realistic and achievable goals, target the right kind of problems and move at a manageable pace.

Arguments and facts

The summit will highlight relevant technology developments and innovations and panel members will address those thorny problems to do with people, politics, money, skills, resources and so on. So don’t be put off if your storage guys don’t talk to your server team, development doesn’t talk to anyone in ops, and the last thing the sales department wants to do is share resources with another division. We will work through some of the challenges based on real world examples.

Seasoned analysts and expert practitioners will tackle your questions during their presentations. Reg host Tim Phillips wraps up the conference with a virtual round table, where you can go head to head with the panel and fellow Reg readers.

The Register Agile Data Summit lasts three-and-a half-hours, but attendees are of course free to come and go as they please. Individual sessions can be focused on, or downloaded some time after the close of proceedings.

Reserve your place today.

Bootnote

We will publish a definitive schedule shortly.
