The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Join us on December 7 at 11:00 GMT, when we’ll be broadcasting live from our London studio with Reg readers Chris Losch, from Newham Council, and Gary Collins, from Intercept IT. Between them, they’re going to run through a raft of real-world projects and deployment scenarios where they’ve been using and abusing Windows Server 2012 to see just what it can do.

Chris is the ICT Technical Architect at Newham Council and he’s joining us to talk us through how he is preparing his bit of local government for a world of shared resources and self-service. He’ll run through the projects he’s working on with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and how it is changing the approach Newham is taking to delivery IT services.

Gary Collins comes with the different perspective of a services provider and integrator. InterceptIT are one of an elite bunch on the Windows Server 2012 Rapid Deployment Programme and, having racked up a wealth of experience already on the platform, he’s now using it live for providing scalable and reliable hosting capacity for his clients.

Alongside Chris and Gary we’ve got Andy Buss of IT analysts, Freeform Dynamics, who will be running us through the results of what the Reg readership has to say on current and future data centre trends.

The whole affair is fronted as usual by our Broadcast Editor, Tim Phillips, who as well as keeping everyone focussed and honest will have the task of throwing your questions at the panel. So if you’ve been wondering what all the fuss is about, or even been tempted to try but have not had a chance to have a go yet, this is your chance to get some answers so make sure you bring them along.
