Data is the new Gold in this current economy. The collective amount of data globally is worth more than our total oil reserves.

Building traditional data centers to support such explosion of data is no longer efficient. With the advent is sensors, the context of IOT and paying as a service, CIOs can now help their organization own data center infrastructures easily or enable their existing data center infrastructure to become smarter.

Smart is the way to go when it comes to the next generation of data center facilities. Smart buildings are no longer a dream from the future, and are very much becoming a reality in today’s day and age. When it comes to data center facility management, there is a world of new techniques and strategies that can be adapted to improve and optimize data center services. The spectrum of changes that can be implemented is huge and far-reaching, and organizations need to plan strategically make decisions that work best for them.

Join us for this luncheon to discuss how CIOs and their teams can manage their data center infrastructures more effectively – improving operational continuity, energy efficiency and enabling performance monitoring. We will also discuss the potential of converting these back end infrastructure which is seen as a black box to our business to potential revenue generating facilities.



This is a big driver when it comes to creating innovative solutions for energy efficiency. Without measurement, one cannot clearly understand the value of the large investment has been put in into sensors, monitors and meters. These sensors and systems automate the measurement of system performance and energy usage under different environmental and equipment conditions.

The solution integrates the various instrumentation systems with the asset management systems to give a holistic view of energy usage and costs, facility performance and carbon footprint.

Extensive use of state-of-the-art data storage devices and analytic systems helps proactively detect faults and trends and propose strategies to save money before any of the end users are impacted.
