(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Cloud represents one of the largest disruptions in Enterprise IT in the last decade according to Abhijit Dubey, Principal at McKinsey & Co, San Francisco, who will be keynoting at Europe’s largest regional leadership event for the IT infrastructure and cloud sector.
In a packed programme attended by 2k executives, Datacloud Europe will focus on how radical changes in the fabric of datacentres, Cloud, and new innovations in cooling and electrical power and much more will impact the way in which services are procured and managed. Finance, investment, the market landscape, the Internet of Things, cyber security, dark fibre, regulation and other leading topics also feature as key topics.
Mr Dubey will address the question, Cloud – Evolution OR Revolution? and will present the latest trends and learnings from how Enterprises are adopting cloud technologies and models, and the implications for the entire technology industry value chain.
In an enterprise led programme, speakers and experts present a powerful agenda dedicated to the transformative process that lies ahead towards an agile computing environment.
Key representatives participating also include CIOs and senior executives from Google, Telia Sonera International Carrier, eBay, Coca Cola, TKD, TNT, Schufa Holding, Old Mutual Wealth, Lonely Planet and many more who will take part in firesiders, facilitated panels and end user case studies to provide insight into the business of today’s IT infrastructure, data, energy and cloud.
“Datacloud Europe is a global leadership forum for networking and collaboration,” commented Steve Wallage, Managing Director, BroadGroup Consulting. “With the participation of the leadership of enterprise, telco, and service provider cloud and datacentre businesses, the event continues to outperform on content covering critical technical, financial and operational topics aligned to the changes that cloud will bring. In feedback, attendees tell us that Monaco is an outstanding location to meet and network.”
BroadGroup estimates that by 2016, close to 70% of Europe’s data centres will be operated by enterprises and the annual conference and exhibition – now in its 11th year – is being attended by executives responsible for IT infrastructure.
The conference and industry exhibition will take place 3-4 June at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo with an Awards Ceremony for datacentre and cloud held on the evening of 2 June for which nominations close 31 March.
