This Year's Theme: The Digital Infrastructure Playbook

Playbooks document strategies to match goals with risk tolerance. Customers and service providers are on different sides of the ball, and each are weighing the odds.

The evolution of the Digital Infrastructure landscape is bringing change – and opportunity – to all players, from enterprises to service providers and vendors. As enterprises look to move more workloads off-premises, they need strategies to mitigate risk and ensure that their service providers can work with their on-premises environments – as well as with other service providers.

Service providers, in the meantime, are contending with rapidly shrinking margins on basic services. The increased customer willingness to invest more in 'as-a-service' offerings offers the promise of additional revenue opportunities for service providers, but ROI concerns persist.

Going forward, all players will need to create Digital Infrastructure playbooks to help them assess the playing field and choose the winning plays.

Conference Highlights Included Cloud and Big Data

HCTS-North America featured sessions that provided the insight, guidance, and prescriptive advice to help you move forward with your Digital Infrastructure planning and implementation.

As enterprises look to move larger workloads and data sets off-premises, many service providers are anticipating the Big Data opportunity and are already partnering or building out infrastructure. HCTS-North America included sessions that focus on the Big Data opportunity.
