The opening Plenary Keynote from DCD>Dubai 2018, presented by George Eapen of Petrofac
This session will discuss the pros and cons of various resilient architectures, as well as strategies to gain accountability and visibility into hybrid IT environments. Learn about this change and how your organisation should be preparing to embrace these approaches. Additionally, understand the risk and opportunity of operating in such a hybrid environment, and the associated business reporting that must exist to be successful.
Artificial intelligence, virtual reality and the increasing number of connected devices place new challenges on data centers. How to keep up with the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT)? What are the latest implications of technology and evolving standards and can you optimize the infrastructure?
In 2017, the iGA (Kingdom Information & e-Government Authority) launched a cloud-first policy requiring all new government ICT procurement to evaluate cloud-based services first. At the same time AWS has chosen Bahrain as its first infrastructure region. This session explores whether in time, there will be a swing with cloud becoming the centre of data storage and, data centers being used for critical infrastructure only.
The smart evolution – Data center evolution in an era of smart cities, e-governments and 5G capability in the Middle East
Hear about how the key stakeholders in the region are using the latest best practices to ensure that their smart city can flourish with a robust IT infrastructure. This session will outline everything from connectivity and 5G acceleration to edge deployment, as well as IT efficiency and sustainability.
