With a relentless commitment towards the Qatar National Vision 2030, the country is enroute to transform itself into an advanced nation. Ambitious plans and a commitment from the country’s telecom regulating body to invest $500 million are making the country soar on its path to expand the ICT sector. Combined with the setting up of well-developed data centre facilities this clearly indicates that Qatar is a strategic business zone to watch for in the future. Economic development being one of the four pillars of the National Vision, new ways of diversifying business capacity are being explored and means to integrate information and communication technology in education, administrative processes and governance are being paved. Qatar’s winning the bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup is a remarkable achievement and is expected to have a windfall impact on the economy. The Government of Qatar has already outlined a plan to spend around $100 billion, i.e. 87% of the GDP on infrastructure projects. Careful sequencing of schemes and robust plans to make sure that it is scalable, adaptable and future proof is of critical importance now.
Ever-increasing amounts of visual and audio data are now being produced, stowed and accessed, and the networks that give entry to this content are becoming ever more extensive. In this framework, the need for regular back-up of mission critical information to remote data-centre services becomes more acute. There are now opportunities like never before for the IT and data service industries for supporting and complimenting this new phase hence being the most opportune time to grow and expand here.
This is your chance for a peek into the future and delve deeper into the current challenges and learn from the existing, well-oiled models. DCD brings you in-depth case studies and path breaking best practice sharing sessions so that you can learn how they progressively evolved and emerged, encapsulating the finer points of datacenter management. Furthermore we will help you look for tangible solutions and incentives to move beyond the DBO model, build an agile datacenter infrastructure, monitor power shift and unleash business advantages by better managing your datacenter to match global standards.

Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.
You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.
To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.
DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:
The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.
