Green Data Centers and Critical Infrastructure: Bridging the Gap between Facilities, IT, and Sustainability

Tuesday, May 6, 2014 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM PDT / Streamed Panel Discussion 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM PDT; 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM EDT / 9:30 PM - 11:00 PM Paris-Brussels

 

This meeting will take place in San Mateo.

 

According to Greenpeace International's recently released report, "How Dirty is Your Data?", data centers consume 1.5-2% of all global electricity. With overall energy consumption of data centers expected to grow at a rate of 12% per year, significant efforts to achieve greener, more sustainable data centers are gaining momentum. However, there remains a significant disconnect between IT, facilities, and senior management of many data center operators.
 
Too often, senior management thinks of enterprise IT as a cost center whose budgeting, expenses, and performance are not linked to the key performance indicators (KPIs) that these executives rely on to understand and control other parts of the business.  This lack of transparency handicaps many companies, because only senior management can make the organizational changes needed to transform enterprise IT.
 
The pursuit of a more sustainable data center could provide a mechanism to bridge the gap between facilities, IT, and senior management, promoting further efficiency/sustainability gains through collaboration. This panel will discuss real-world examples of how management changes in enterprise IT can have catalytic effects, increasing profits, improving business agility and significantly reducing costs.
 
Key Topics:
 
  • IT as a cost reducing profit center, not a cost center
  • Barriers to efficiency and sustainability gains in the data center space
  • Innovative new approaches that can be implemented to foster collaboration
