Journey from the Basement: Data Management Within Colocation
4:30pm - 5:30pmWednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
A company’s growth is nearly always perceived as a positive event. However, managing the growth of an organization can be extremely complex for a healthcare facility or hospital IT department, especially if they’re transitioning from an internal IT strategy to colocation or a hybrid IT approach. The Moffitt Cancer Center faced just that, quickly realizing that their existing data center strategy -- an on premise server and storage infrastructure -- was no longer sustainable. In today’s evolving IT landscape, it is critical for IT departments to understand which factors to consider when evaluating a colocation or hybrid IT model , what challenges to plan for in the transition to colocation services, and the potential organizational benefits of this model. This “Journey from the Basement” can be transformational for a healthcare organization, but requires careful planning and execution to ensure reliable and high performance delivery.
