Data Centre Congress Virtual Agenda - Day 1
Keynote: Customer innovation and customised collocation
Collocation brings together connectivity and infrastructure in a secure, shared structure. It has the potential to increase data security, regulatory compliance, and optimise time-to-market.
Get the inside story on how colocated data centres and data-centre-as-a-service can help companies navigate digital challenges in a world that’s not just digital first, it’s digital exclusive.
Panel: What does the next gen data centre look like? IoT, AI, ML, 5G, and virtualisation
IT professionals need to make sure their servers are equipped to handle the wide range of demands generated by the emerging technologies that are reshaping the corporate landscape as we speak.
Whether that means maintaining in house data centres or relying on off-site data centres, artificial intelligence, edge computing, virtualisation, and the way they integrate with each other will have major implications for enterprises.
This panel will discuss emerging technology in data centres, and how businesses can leverage them to harness the power of data.

Panel: Covid-19 – Opportunity or challenge for the future of data centres
The global health and social crisis has changed the way we live our lives, temporarily at least.
Shopping, streaming, and enterprise communication have all moved into the digital realm, and digital infrastructure like data centres have never been more crucial to keep the wheels turning.
On the flip side, data centre consolidation, like moving servers, closing buildings, and opening new space is made all the more difficult by the societal constraints we find ourselves under.
In this brave new world, has the future of data centres ever looked brighter, or is it in jeopardy?

Keynote Presentation: What is data gravity – and what does this mean businesses and their data?
In the not too distant past, data was created in a much more centralised place, and users and systems had far less access to it. How times change.
With digital data from social, analytics, mobile, IoT, and the cloud being created constantly, so much information is kicking about that it’s formed a centre of gravity. The more data that’s created, data gravity becomes more robust, and moving it becomes all the more difficult.
It’s a massive management challenge. How can enterprises manage their data gravity, workflow issues, and security concerns?
