Chennai, India, November 27, 2014: The CeBIT, the world’s largest IT event, has joined forces with DatacentreDynamics, a global provider of specialist datacentre conferences, to create the world’s largest truly international datacentre event at the CeBIT in Hannover between March 16-20th 2015.
Themed “The Business of Datacentres”, the conference programme will run over 5 days, and will welcome a host of international experts to Germany, the world’s second largest datacentre market. The content will focus on helping IT professionals better understand the role of the modern datacentre as the ultimate business enabler and home to “the Cloud” in all its forms. The conference programme will explore not only how modern datacentres are designed, built and operated, but also how organisations should select infrastructure partners for their ever increasing international growth requirements. The 2015 conference programme is split into 3 distinct tracks:
1) Design + Strategy – Focusing on the issues faced by senior managers responsible for the organisational strategy and design of in-house datacentre assets.
2) IT + Networks – Determining how to link business strategy to technology adoption and how advances in IT and network technology affect how we build and connect datacentres in the future.
3) Critical Environment – Helping professionals who manage the performance, efficiency and resilience of a datacentre’s physical infrastructures, also known as the critical environment.
The Expo, housed in over 12,000sqm – the largest ever organised – will mirror the diversity of the conference content, hosting the entire eco-system of product and solution vendors to the market. The organisers are excited to already have significant commitment from the largest brands in the datacentre industry.
This is the first joint venture of its kind that CeBIT has entered into in its 20 year history. Oliver Frese, member of the board of CeBIT-Organiser Deutsche Messe AG, said “We are excited to be working with DCD, which heralds a new age of brand collaboration in the B2B media arena. By combining forces we can deliver the IT professionals much more targeted learning and networking opportunities”.
George Rockett, Founder of the DatacentreDynamics event series, added, “We are honoured to be working with such a legendary event as CeBIT. The scale of both the audience and the venue will allow us to introduce some exciting new conference formats, and explore new topics.”
Themed ‘d!conomy’ CeBIT 2015 will center around the rapidly growing influence of IT across all areas of business and society and, associated with this, the role of IT as a key driver of innovation. Oliver Frese, a member of the Managing Board of Deutsche Messe AG. Said, “Digitization is everywhere and is shaping ever more dimensions of working and social life. IT is transforming existing business models while at the same time giving rise to completely new ones. Information technology now has the ability to rapidly disrupt entire industries. d!conomy encapsulates this development perfectly.”
