"Empowering the Data Center:
Consolidation and the Cloud"

According to several studies, federal agencies still are unable to meet goals set by the federal government's Cloud First mandate. In addition, the ambitious FDCCI initiative, intended to save billions in data center costs, has produced mixed results with some agencies better equipped to meet baseline goals. One way to get back on track with Cloud First and to continue to meet FDCCI mandates is to focus on data center consolidation through better approaches to infrastructure management and cloud enablement to lower costs, improve efficiency, and boost productivity.

Join more than 100 federal government IT and facilities leaders to discuss the latest in data center consolidation efforts aimed at speeding efficiency, boosting productivity, cutting costs, and creating a more streamlined and enhanced approach to management. Experts from InformationWeek, Gartner, Siemens, and a variety of federal agencies on the leading-edge of empowering the data center and the people who manage them, will present solutions that challenge the status quo and present possibilities for everyone to achieve their data center optimization goals.

"Empowering the Data Center Efficiency, Energy-Saving, and Green IT"

Businesses' unquenchable need for the most reliable, swift, and secure information means they are taxing data centers' resources at an alarming pace. That's putting added pressure on data center managers and facilities professionals to find ways to reduce resource consumption that not only adds incredible cost to business operations, but also threatens irreparable harm to natural resources. For example, data centers today consume more than 2% of all electricity generated in the United States.

Join us to discuss the latest in data center solutions aimed at increasing efficiency, reducing energy consumption, cutting costs, and ensuring optimal service delivery. Experts from InformationWeek, Gartner, Siemens, and a variety of leading-edge practitioners will present valuable information about empowering the data center and the people who manage them, as well as solutions that challenge the status quo and present possibilities for everyone to achieve their data center optimization goals.
