Cisco DC Operations Experience – "be at the fast lane with your business"

Driven by digitalization and the race against competition most companies and Business functions are in the process to change the way they operate. The IT-Organization is expected to transform as well, if the business requires it.

Cisco has a unique portfolio for application operations, workload optimization and infrastructure automation. Helping you get the visibility and transparency you need for end to end monitoring and troubleshooting as well as for optimizing the utilization of applications and infrastructure. Across clouds and vendors.

Keynote: Transformation and how is the IT specialist impacted

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

Latest Cloud and DataCenter Technology is driving new processes, expectations, and IT specialists have to have to evolve in order to meet their bosses and shareholder expectations. How does our survival strategy look like? Today IT departments spend a lot of time in interfacing other groups. Usually on an infrastructure level. What we can learn from self-driving-cars about 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 which can drive through a city. The glue in a car consists of Sensors, Analytics, Automation and Platforms which make a car drive safely and reliable. Learn what makes a Data Center an intelligent system.
