Best Practice Forum to Building and Delivering an Effective and Cost-Effective Strategy

The IT industry is facing a serious dilemma: to stay with the co-location option or to build their own. More often than not the end-users find it difficult to see the business case for building their own datacentre with an ever-increasing storage need.

Our conference will provide a unique opportunity of detailed guidelines through the process of making the decision between data co-location or rental and the new build construction of a datacentre, bringing you the latest industry case studies from sophisticated as well as from entry level private and public sector end-users.

IT professionals will get together to discuss technical challenges of migration from data centres and the business case for the cloud. We will bring you the hottest topics, the best speakers in new interactive formats… watch this space to find out more!
