About This Conference
DCD as-a-Service will bring together senior business, operations and technology professionals from the world’s major colocation, cloud, telecoms and other data center and managed service providers to discuss the future of this rapidly growing data center sector. The two-day conference program will run separate tracks on infrastructure deployment strategies, design, and operational efficiency as well as on platform interoperability, investment, and demand-side dynamics. Running alongside the conference are interactive workshops and a series of CxO roundtables.
The latest forecasts indicate that enterprise spending on outsourced data center services is set to more than double to $57billion by 2020, as in-house infrastructure comes increasingly under scrutiny. Many delivery models are competing for this expenditure and this event will become the de-facto platform where key stakeholders of an increasingly globalized sector come to discuss how they can co-operate and develop even more competitive infrastructure and services to enable the digital enterprise.
