Plenary Roundtable: Dear Future Industries, Please Tell Us What Infrastructure You Will Need to Power Your Exponential Growth?
By 2020 the amount of data created will be 50+ zettabytes and by 2025, IDC have predicted that 49% of the world’s stored data will be in public cloud environments with data generation dominated by ‘future industries’ enabled by edge networks and centralized data centers. This "extended play" plenary panel pulls together professionals from the life sciences and healthcare, next-gen transportation and global internet sectors and pits them against their future digital infrastructure service providers from cloud, colocation and telecoms to debate how huge predicated capacity requirements of the future will be met.
The panel will uncover the modern approach to capacity, hardware ownership, IT agility and supply-chain management. How do you build the unknowable into corporate strategy planning? How is the long lead for equipment evolving as projects double in scale and complexity? What impact will exponential digital growth have on scheduled delivery times and how will pressure on deliver effect speed-to-market?
