A business view of technology sees the data centre as a cross-functional environment, where facilities, IT and the enterprise all need to work together to ensure IT responsiveness to the unpredictable demands of a radically shifting business landscape. Whether impacted by cloud computing or carbon reduction, today’s data centre facilities need to accommodate ever-expanding and unpredictable demand on computing capacity.

Highlighting these challenges, Derek Webster, Head of Data Centre Development EMEA at Yahoo!, will review the development of Yahoo! data centres and how design and operation has moved on from an enterprise environment driven by the rapid growth of the internet to one concentrating on efficiency, cost control and increased utilisation of computing resources.

Adding to the debate about utility computing, Clive Longbottom of Quocirca asks whether the cloud is merely shifting the platform focus from the corporate data centre to an external one, or if it holds game-changing potential for enterprise IT. Working with facilities management, IT departments need to establish the point at which the cloud makes sense and how best to manage the hybrid environment to meet the changes demanded by the business.

Over 2 days attendees at DatacenterDynamics London will have the opportunity to attend 18 sessions of their choice from a selection of 70 case studies, technical papers, panel debates and roundtable discussion groups bringing IT and data centre management together.
