|11:10am||"Data Centres Mean Business"
Data Centres are the heart of any business and as we automate more and more business systems, IT is pressured to ensure business is enabled. All too often though, businesses can feel constrained by the capabilities of their information technology (IT) and supporting infrastructure. Is there enough rack space to handle more servers? Can power capacity accommodate larger IT loads?
This presentation explores key areas of focus for the future data centre and will stimulate thinking on how to enable high performance, quick deployment and easy to operate through change, be scalable and adaptable to support business growth, and how to leverage innovative solutions. In such a competitive world any outage in the data centre creates service disruptions, lost revenue and market reputation.

Whether it is at the process, data, software, hardware or physical levels, security is a critical issue among CxOs. Why? The consequences of security breach are immeasurable! The losses are multi-dimensional - monetary, reputation, credibility and trust! How do you overcome these exposures?
