This IDC Web Conference discusses the importance of smarter datacenters. IDC conducted a special study in January 2017 to examine current datacenter management practices, identify issues occurring in datacenters, and assess how these issues are impacting businesses. The study unveiled compelling data on the importance of overcoming siloes and improving coordination between IT organizations and the critical facilities that support them. In this IDC Web Conference, Research Director Jennifer Cooke explores the building blocks of smarter datacenters and the importance of adopting these technologies to support IT and digital transformation initiatives. Key topics addressed in this Web Conference include:

  • How integrated/converged IT impacts critical facilities infrastructure
  • The impact of datacenter downtime on the business
  • Enterprise and service providers' top priorities for improvement
