DataCenter Insights 2014 set for November 3 – 5 in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
PRLog - Nov. 21, 2013 - MERRIMACK, N.H. -- The DataCenter Insights Summit (DCI) was held at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego November 3 - 5 and was a major success for both sponsors and attendees. DCI is a premier, enterprise-focused summit for companies serious about transforming their IT to meet today and tomorrow’s data center challenges. The main theme of the event was "Transformation: Developing & Sustaining Change in the Data Center."
The DCI conference chair was Jerry Murphy, Global Director for Cognizant. “Data Center Executives want to put theory into practical use. Data Center Insights provides a tremendous venue where busy IT executives can share with each other their challenges, ideas, and practices they have used to turn great ideas into reality.”
DCI executive attendees enjoyed the opportunity to meet one-to-one with and listen to focused case studies from leading data center solutions providers. They also learned from top industry experts and their peers in keynote sessions, end user panels, fireside chats, and breakout sessions throughout the 3-day program. A team of leading industry experts from IDC, Forrester Research and Robert Frances Group joined conference Chair Jerry Murphy of Cognizant.
“Excellent event that was able to bring together industry leading analysts, large enterprise end users and detailed case studies. A definite must attend for anyone looking to make a paradigm shift in 2014 in the way they operate their IT environment,” commented Robert DeVita, General Manager, Cologix.
“I found the event very useful and a great of use of my time. I got a good picture of where data center technology is going and also found the right people to help solve some issues that we are facing right now,” stated Ted Maulucci, CIO, Tridel Corporation.
DCI is a world-class, three-day networking and business information exchange where a limited number of guests from leading enterprises and data center organizations are invited. DCI’s unique format provides sponsors with boardroom meetings, case studies, and 1:1 meetings with executives intimately involved with data center strategy, purchasing authority, and purchasing intent across major industry verticals.
“As if the quality and the participation of the attendees and highly relevant keynote content weren’t enough, the ROI for the sponsors in terms of intimate audiences for case studies and 1:1 meetings made the DataCenter Insights Summit a superlative event. The relationship-building/business development potential is vast, and we look forward to participating again next year,” stated Jan S. LeVine, Americas Alliances Manager, VMware.
Sponsors were thrilled with the quality of attendees, stating that they were meeting with qualified decision makers who were looking to make purchases, some closing contracts at the event. The event format not only provided sponsors with pre-scheduled 1:1 meetings and case studies allowing them to showcase how they are partnering with customers to overcome challenges and transform their data centers, but over the course of the 2.5 days they get to know each and every attendee on a first name basis.
“DCI was the most valuable event for ITWatchDogs, allowing us to connect on a personal level with the top IT executives across a diverse set of industries. An event alive with insightful conversations, fun people and an awesome venue, not to mention the great ROI! Highly recommended,” commented Mo Sheikh, Sales & Marketing Manager, ITWatchDogs.
DCI organizers nGage Events were pleased with the results and have confirmed dates for 2014. “DCI is different from traditional conferences and trade shows. For DCI sponsors it removes the ROI unknown that comes with traditional events and the uncertainty around how many qualified leads the event will generate. For attendees it’s a cost effective and highly productive way to learn from top industry experts about trends/issues in their specific market and cross vertical, network with peers, and understand the solutions that can address their organizations specific business requirements. We are pleased with the results from this years’ event and plan on improving even more in 2014,” said Philip McKay, President & CEO, nGage Events.
Media partners included Tabor Communications, the Storage Network Industry Association (SNIA), Data Center Journal and Data Center Post.
