20/20 Vision: Physical IT infrastructure for Financial Services

In every sector, digital transformation requires a wholesale review of IT infrastructure investment, ownership and operational models, not least in Financial Services where compliance and regulation add to the complexity.

From the trading floor to the branch office customer demands and data intensive applications are reshaping the data center landscape. In advance of DCD>New York, the annual event for data center and cloud infrastructure transformation, we bring together experts from the field to discuss the future.
  • How are new technologies like IoT, AI, Big Data and Blockchain impacting digital infrastructure requirements and your data center strategy?
  • In the age of Edge and Hybrid IT how do you manage the balance between Cloud and On-premise IT?
  • What tools and resources are available to help you manage your edge deployments?
  • How do emerging markets compare to mature markets?
