PRESS RELEASE: On Thursday 7 November, RiT Tech (RiT) held the very first of a series of thought-leadership industry events in London.
There were some presentations throughout the day, the first subject being “Orchestrating the Software-defined Data Centre”(SDDC) which was co-hosted by Intel DCM and sponsored by ExcelRedstone and PTS Consulting; representatives of whom all made presentations to the audience. A lively debate took place afterwards which will help guide resulting publications from the event.
This new event has been named the Open Platform Colloquium and has been launched in order to gather experts, stakeholders, end-users and vendors together to discuss a current issue and investigate practical ways that companies can make progress.
Some of the key takeaways from the day were as follows:
- DCIM is necessary for smooth operations of complex environments such as an SDDC
- A full DCIM implementation requires stakeholder involvement from around the business
- Leaders are working to fix the reputation of DCIM as it is evolving and its scope is widening
- A new name for DCIM? Data centre, Network & Infrastructure Orchestration (DNIO) is RiT’s progressive offering called XpedITe
- Accuracy of data is critical, using big data is important
- Real time data is critical for successful operations
- DCIM/DNIO is not an “Off the shelf” product – it requires integration work as well as configuration of processes
The next Open Platform Colloquium will be announced shortly. To take part or find out more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
