Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Management Summit 2011, to be held June 13-15 at the Peabody Hotel in Orlando, Fla., aims to deliver the strategies, tactics and how-to recommendations data center managers and IT executives need to take the right course of action and ensure their Infrastructure and Operations is operating at its optimal best. The theme of this year's gathering is Achieving IT Operational Excellence: Virtualization, Cloud and More.
Because it is a unique moment in I&O, teams are under pressure to leverage existing resources and investments to grow and transform the business. And as challenges continue — from the explosive growth of storage to dealing with an increasing mobile workforce — I&O executives must determine which technologies deliver the fastest ROI.
While virtualization has delivered significant "first-wave" benefits but are businesses and organizations ready to exploit it at its highest levels? And what about Cloud Computing? Separating the hype from reality is still a challenge as the adoption of public, private or hybrid models poses new questions. Meanwhile, the best way to fund new projects is by optimizing current legacy environments.
Through analyst sessions, problem-solving workshops and peer interaction, participants can gain the insight necessary to:
- Deliver projects enabling business growth
- Develop the right cloud strategy
- Determine next steps with virtualization
- Deal with ITIL and process improvements
- Manage the explosive growth of data
- Reduce IT costs
- Understand mobility's impact on I&O
- Change the culture of I&O operations
