Automated and intelligent datacenter optimisation, management and capacity planning solutions are a must have in todayâ€™s mission critical datacenter facility and IT Infrastructure. The DCD 2008 Tokyo 2008 Command & Control Summit will explore the options available and looks at building a roadmap to integrate automated tools in the multi-layer fabric of the next-generation data center and IT Infrastructures.
IT and Facility managers are seeking new datacenter management solutions that enable organisations to attain best-practice standards, meet regulatory and compliance requirements, reduce opportunities for human error, adopt a â€œutilityâ€ based business computing model of service delivery and enable management by exception. Traditional tools are no longer able to cope with managing the demands of a service orientated technology architecture while achieving unified command, control and communication through integrated processes, systems and standardised reporting metrics for all stakeholders.
This special conference focuses on the needs for automated, intelligent solutions and processes for datacenter and IT infrastructure management. It will highlight the drivers, requirements and elements needed in automation tool sets to provide class-leading datacenter management software and solutions which bridge the gaps between facilities and technology management.
Datacenter C4I can help:
â€¢ What should and can be automated to optimisatise the datacenter for optimum utilisation while maintaining a centralised repository and management tool set across facilities and technology?
â€¢ How can we automate forecasts, capacity planning and management, change planning and management whilst optimising service desk incident responses?
â€¢ Risk and corrective action planning and management. Stop incidents from occurring or reduce the impact of the issues.
â€¢ How can we implement a charge-back, itemised billing system that allows for a metered cost charged-back IT service: â€œutilityâ€ computing?
â€¢ What is needed to resolve one of the datacentre and IT critical pain points: controlling the increasing complexity and costs through BTO (Business Technology Optimization)
â€¢ Supporting the reduction of operational costs, improved service quality and enhanced IT compliance.
â€¢ How can an organization reduce downtime through compliance tracking and process automation, risk assessment and corrective action planning, reducing the risk of human error that causes downtime. Business and technology managers must consider these technologies to drive greater, more profitable efficiencies
â€¢ Automated back up, fail over and disaster recovery, keeping operations and/or service running transparently regardless of the issue.
â€¢ Automated service/server provisioning and configuration management to facilitate the change process and set up within the back office processes.
