IMN is excited to announce the Provider Forum on Financing & Investing in Data Centers & Cloud Services Infrastructure (West) on October 17-18, 2016 in Santa Rosa, CA. Focusing on the critical business issues that C-level executives at data center, colocation and Cloud service providers must face, the program will address four key themes: Optimizing Business Models & Strategies for Growth, Expanding to New Service Offerings, Cost Reduction & Mitigation Strategies, and Cost-Effective Infrastructure Investment & Future-Proofing.

Back in the West Coast for a seventh consecutive year, last year’s event brought over 65 speakers including CEOs and Presidents of data center firms and 250+ attendees including some of the most prominent data center owners, tenants, investors, capital and service providers.

New and exciting topics to give much food for thought this year include: The Political Environment for Data Centers: Water, SEC Regulation & Energy-Efficiency; Edge Computing vs. the 5-Watt Mega Data Center; Business Models 2020: Who Will Be the Winners?; As The Cloud Evolves so Does Your Decision: Building Your Own vs. Public vs. Wholesale & Hybrid Offerings; Monetizing Services through the Cloud; Lowering Data Center, Cloud Delivery & Reliability Costs; Transforming Your Data Center for the Economics of the Cloud vs. Cloud-Only Data Centers; Where Is Corporate Computing Going?; Plus, The Enterprise End User Shark Tank: What Are You Looking for Space-Wise?
