DCD Intelligence to Host Peer-Led Seminar, "Leveraging Data Center Portfolios to Mitigate Risk and Create Strategic Advantage"

The June 25 Seminar Offered by DCD Intelligence (Research Division of DatacenterDynamics) Will Focus on How Companies Are Dealing With the Issues Associated With Risk Management in a Cost-Conscious Economy

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/13 -- DCD Intelligence, a division of DatacenterDynamics that offers an array of market research, business intelligence, analysis and reporting services, announces today it will host a peer-led seminar for senior strategists titled, "Leveraging Data Center Portfolios to Mitigate Risk and Create Strategic Advantage." The seminar will take place on Tuesday, June 25 at 200 Park Avenue in New York City.

A survey conducted in March of this year confirmed that data center owners and operators in New York and the Tri-State area are facing issues with managing cost reduction whilst maintaining service levels. Reduced CAPEX and OPEX requirements combined with risk management in the wake of natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy are forcing data center operators in the area to re-evaluate strategic plans for their portfolio and make decisions that would have been unlikely 24 months ago.

According to results of the survey, it appears as though many operators are struggling to find a balance between cost and risk. The survey discovered that there is not always a match between what an operator would prefer to implement in order to reduce cost and what they actually implement.

The above leads to the questions on whether or not operators have yet to fully align their cost reduction strategies with overall risk mitigation or if operators are now having to accept that occasionally decisions have to be made that may increase the risk to the business?

The DCD Intelligence seminar will offer attendees invaluable insight into the factors that need to be addressed when balancing risk against cost in a multi-portfolio environment.

Industry-leading speakers at the event have been specifically invited based on their own experience in working through such issues from a strategic perspective. The mix of keynote sessions, case-studies and panels are all designed to help attendees with their own strategic future planning.

The comprehensive seminar agenda opens with welcome remarks by DCD Intelligence Managing Director, Nicola Hayes, followed by a session from Keynote Speaker, Gloria J. Broeker, Chief Operating Officer of New Jersey Office of Information Technology. Broeker will speak on her experiences during and after Hurricane Sandy and will offer advice on how to incorporate risk planning into future strategic decision making in her panel titled, "Risk Mitigation and Management in IT and Data Centers."

Part One of the agenda opens with the keynote speaker, and features other panels on "International Data Center Strategies," while Part Two leads way into "Understanding Global Power & Network Markets." After a lunch break, Parts Three and Four focus on "Managing Legal Compliance and Taxation Codes," and "Maximizing Business Growth Potential & Future Proofing."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
