Data Centres Under Pressure: Concepts for IT as a profit centre

Is your enterprise under pressure to reduce IT costs whilst managing Big Data hyper-growth and Cloud initiatives? Do you have an accurate picture of your IT costs today and in the future?

Date: 12th Nov 2015

Venue: Abode Hotel, 107 Piccadilly, Manchester, M1 2DB

If ever there was a champion of the Great British menu it is Michael Caines, we know you will love the experience at his restaurant in Manchester’s Abode, a gorgeous setting for this very special Private Dining event. Situated in a grade two listed building, a Victorian cotton merchant’s warehouse, an incredibly stylish setting.

In keeping with what we hear from all of our readers, all IT initiatives need a sound control on costs. This evening will discuss topics including :-

• Identifying technological and market trends responsible for driving up TCO.
• IT becoming a broker of internal and external services behaviour changes and challenging IT traditions in order to deliver superior costs.
• Technical areas where we are making the same (economic) mistakes around big data, VM, hyper converged and all-flash systems; focusing too much on price and not enough on cost.
• Transforming IT to be a profit centre not a cost centre.

Joining us will be David Merrill, Chief Economist , Hitachi Data Systems who has developed a number of award winning white papers and methodologies in the Storage marketplace over the last 15 years.

All of this within the context of an exquisite Private Dining setting, great debate with your peers and fantastic networking. So choose the location that’s best for you and reserve your seat today.

We look forward to sharing a great evening with you.
