Introduction

13:35

Keynote: Transformation and how is the IT specialist impacted

Speaker: Tjerk Bijlsma | Technology Officer - Cisco EMEAR Data Center Team

Latest Cloud and Data Center Technology is driving new processes, new expectations and IT specialists have to evolve in order to meet business and shareholder expectations. How does our survival strategy look like? We are living in a constantly changing world, where we all have to change the way we operate, if we want to stay relevant.

What can we learn from self-driving-cars on how to run a data center? An autonomous car is full of high-tech. While every part is important, it’s the glue between the parts that makes it an intelligent system. The glue in a car consists of Sensors, Analytics, Automation and Platforms which enables a car to drive safely and reliable. Learn what makes a Data Center an intelligent system.
