LONDON, January 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading ICT professionals to discuss the future of data centres, technical and energy efficiency challenges through presentation of the latest case studies from both the public and private sectors at the Data Centre Strategy Forum, 6-7 March 2012, London - http://bit.ly/At8SeY.
How do you define your data centre facilities' strategy based on your overall business objectives and your company's current IT strategy? With so many drivers dragging you in different directions, how do you solve this problem in your team?
IQPC has invited leading ICT executives from organisations including Lloyds TSB, Claranet Group, The 452 Group, Telecity Group, Telecom Italia and The European Commission Directorate General Joint Research Centre to reveal the latest strategy updates on how to overcome data centre challenges in business, facilities, infrastructure and operational areas.
Ahead of the Data Centre Strategy Forum, taking place in London on 6-7 March 2012 (http://datacentrestrategy.com), two interviews with leading data centre strategists have been released: "Data Centre Efficiency: A Chinese Puzzle from a Private Sector Perspective" with Wil Cunningham, Disaster Recovery Extension Program - Delivery Lead at Lloyds TSB, and "Choosing the Right Technology to Complete the Picture from a Public Sector Perspective" with Adrian Smales, Senior Independent IT Consultant.
The latter focuses on the importance of doing a comparison analysis between all the available options when deciding what the best strategy is for your organisation. According to Adrian: "In today's businesses there's a great deal of choice and a lot of that choice is really dependent upon business goals and drivers and existing technology. It's very important to make sure that we can really sweat assets and maximise efficiency and make sure that we can drag all of the value out of technology."
Concurrently, Wil also highlights in his interview the fact that "with still rapid and ever-increasing demands on budgets, and especially if that is translated into data centre space, a new strategy, a new way of thinking, a new ethos, if you like, is actually something that is required for people who are accountable for data centre space."
