The Data Centre Alliance (DCA) is set return to its roots when it hosts an event which is dedicated to knowledge and education next month.
The event, which takes place at The Lowry, Salford Quays, on September 11, is for DCA Corporate Partners and Registered Users; Data Centre Owners and Operators, as well as anyone else with an interest in data centres.
The emphasis of Data Centre ReTransformation is not just on commercial activity but on gaining the vital knowledge from industry experts that will allow delegates to make strategic decisions for their organisations.
For the first time, the DCA has introduced a track which is focused on careers in the data centre sector. Experts will be explaining why the sector is worth serious consideration when looking for a role in the technology industry.
This track is aimed at students – invitations have been sent to colleges and universities in the Manchester area. Ex-military personnel are also invited to attend this track.
The three conference tracks include:
TRACK 1 – Supporting the Demand
WORKSHOP 1 – It’s people not technology that will decide the future – panel
WORKSHOP 3 – Building the circular economy – panel
WORKSHOP 5 – Power and energy master class – presentation, followed by Q&A session
TRACK 2 – Data Centres of the Future
WORKSHOP 2 – How fluid is our future? – Panel
WORKSHOP 4 – If the world is round, where exactly is the Edge?
WORKSHOP 6 – The tip of the iceberg, the DC sector is doing all it can to be energy efficient but what about everyone else?
TRACK 3 – Research and Careers
SESSION 1 – Horizon 2020 EU Project Meeting – Catalyst Green Data Centres
SESSION 2 – Join the Digital Revolution! DC’s – The engines powering our digital world. What exactly is a Data Centre and why is it so important?
Educational track for students, ex-military and those interested in joining the sector.
SESSION 3 Making the Data Centre Sector a career of choice
Panel discussion detailing experts routes into the DC sector and the roles available to those wishing to start a career in technology.
Speakers will be focusing on thought leadership content and will be discussing the broader landscape of the data centre sector rather than product specifics.
There will be plenty of time to network with the other delegates during the event and to make new contacts at the curry night in the evening.
