NTT, Dimension Data, Deutsche Boerse, Infinity, Volta, Microsoft, Outsourcery, HP, Hibernia Networks, Globenet to debate the future of enterprise outsourcing and capacity at leading European data center and cloud transformation event this November
Expenditure by blue chips on outsourcing, colocation, managed and cloud services is set to almost double to $57bn by 2020 according to the latest findings from DCDi. But whilst public cloud adoption surges, the enterprise continues to struggle with compliance issues, data security and maintaining legacy infrastructure, the enterprise is being driven to explore private and hybrid models for their burgeoning capacity requirements.
Major colocation, cloud service providers and telecom providers and their largest end-users will converge on DCD Europe being held at ExCeL London on 18/19th November to map out an uncertain future.

“For some applications the cloud is still half-baked so the enterprise has to find other solutions to their scale-out challenges,” says Jessica Constantinidis, Head of European Next Generation Data Centre Transformation at Dimension Data, who will be speaking at the event. “The private and hybrid approach presents challenging architectures that we need to respond to and requires strong partnerships.”
Telecom Exchange CEO Roundtables Tackle Carrier Wholesale offerings in the Age of IoT
This year DCD Converged Europe is partnering with Telecom Exchange, collocating their Telecom Exchange London event on 19th November. TEX brings together voice and data wholesale telecoms service providers to close business, attracting leading buyers and sellers of wholesale data and transit providers, who need to connect to the ‘people behind the networks’ to negotiate and close capacity deals and debate how they can move beyond traditional carrier offerings by tapping into the cloud connectivity market.
Programme provides holistic approach to data center and cloud transformation
The two-day program will run separate tracks on infrastructure deployment strategies, design, and operational efficiency as well as on platform interoperability, investment, and demand-side dynamics. Running alongside the conference are interactive workshops and a series of high-level roundtables.
A featured colocation panel, closely aligned with Telecom Exchange, will look into how enterprise colocation procurement strategy is changing in reaction to the shorter-term needs of dynamic and hybrid infrastructure and is joined by Microsoft, NTT Communications, CBRE and Telehouse, followed by a dedicated colocation procurement workshop. The workshop is hosted by NTT, Telehouse, CBRE, ETIX and Volta Data Centres, and will enable enterprise procurement specialists to connect with leading capacity providers to discuss today’s challenges with capacity decision-making in today’s hybrid environments.
“DCD has transformed over the last four years to become a truly holistic data center event that covers the whole IT stack. We are creating a collaborative environment where the many professional disciplines that touch the data center within large scale operators and end-users can come together to find cross-stack solutions,” said George Rockett, CEO, DatacenterDynamics. “
