IDC Datacenter Transformation Roadshow 2015

Budapest, May 28, 2015


More change has occurred in IT infrastructure and in datacenter facilities in the last four years than in the previous 20. For many organizations, the datacenter is increasingly a technology anchor, weighing the business down with constantly rising OPEX, staffing and location concerns, and holding back potential adoption of strategies, solutions, and technologies that could seriously improve how your IT is delivered. From the myth of the "cheap datacenter" to the increasing need for an always-on availability, it's beginning to seem like the most promising aspects of datacenter ownership – or even maintenance – have a diminishing case for viability.

Our 2015 series focused on datacenters will discuss the current trends in architecting, sourcing, operating, and optimizing the enterprise datacenter and will reveal what the future holds for this formerly hyped infrastructure must-have, and how it fits into the 3rd Platform. Key industry players and decision makers will examine the essential features of the next-generation datacenter, and share knowledge about everything from the rise of automation and holistic ownership strategy to the software-defined datacenter, "pulse stacking", and potential for business enablement.

StruxureWare for Data Centers - The Integrated DCIM Solution

Attila Szarka
Business Develompment Manager, Data Center Solutions Schneider Electric IT Business, Central East Europe & Israel
Although more and more DCIM solution is used in the data center management, the not or not properly integrated software applications can prevent maximizing the benefits. Fast ROI and immediate benefits can be achieved without integration. Practical experience shows however, that a well-designed software integration strategy can further increase the operational efficiency, and maximize the return of investment. Schneider Electric helps its partners and customers not only in the installation of the market leading StruxreWare for Data Centers DCIM package, but also designing and implementing the integration of it into existing environments.



How to be, or not to be…

Ákos Deliága
Business Development Lead, Data Center Facilities ConsultingLead for Criticl Facility Services, CEE, HP

We’re used to the rapid development in IT technology and that every year new amazing products are introduced. Nowadays three technology trends promise total disruption to all currently operating companies – or the ones who fail to adapt may disappear. Big Data, 3D printing and the sharing economy will radically change the economy and it may be already too late to prepare. We’ll present the expected effects of these trends on data center facilities and we’ll explain the considerations a responsible CEO should consider regarding the IT Strategy. Naturally one size doesn’t fit all, but the considerations we’ll explain are valid for everyone, which is underlined by the recent cloud market research professionally supervised by the Data Center and Cloud workgroup at the Hungarian Association of ICT Companies.
