Introduced and Chaired by: Sean Hackett, Managing Director, Professional Services, 451 Group
According to Gartner, as much as 70% of the average IT budget gets blown on operational costs. New approaches, including real-time performance management will be needed to ensure seamless, reliable service delivery.
In real life, however, the name of the game is “compromise”. So we’ve asked Sean Hackett to identify and describe the top ten typical conflicts between what COI’s really want from their internal (Private Cloud) or virtualized datacentre and what can actually be achieved.
Sean then grants each panellist a brief 3 minutes ‘elevator pitch’ to explain how they address each of his challenges. Their task is to persuade Sean Hackett, and the audience, why their company offers the best deal.
Speakers: Arpit Joshipura, Vice President of Product Marketing, Dell; Dominic Wilde, Vice President, Global Product Line Management, Networking, HP; Charles Ferland, SDN Global Sales & Business Development Executive, IBM; Sunil Khandekar, President & CEO, Nuage Networks
