Viridity Software To Join with Intel and Techdirt To Discuss the Future of Data Center Energy Productivity Management

Learn Why Current Energy Productivity Management Methodologies That Focus On How Power Is Delivered To the Data Center Are Missing the Mark and Why the Future will be Dedicated to Understanding Why

BURLINGTON, Mass., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ --

    When:         Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time
                  (9:00 a.m. Pacific Time)

    Who:          Chris Peters, Manager, Intel IT
                  Mike Rowan, Founder and CTO, Viridity Software
                  Michael Masnick, CEO, Techdirt

    What:         Traditionally, power, cooling, and utilization have been
                  monitored and managed separately by three primary groups in
                  the organization - IT/IS management, facilities management
                  and the C-suite (i.e., CIO, CFO and CEO).  Each constituent
                  dedicated to maximizing the data center and its assets, in
                  addition to managing expense, but each coming at it from
                  separate corners with very little, if any, inter-
                  communications.  Because of this, even the most
                  sophisticated organizations are in a sense, running blind
                  and scared - wondering how much headroom is left and
                  whether or not they are living on borrowed time.

                  Consequently, the data center is often identified as a cause
                  for stagnation of growth, as it is believed that it will
                  shortly be out of power, cooling, or both.  Or perhaps
                  worse, significant equipment and application investments are
                  made that cannot be accommodated in the data center because
                  these resources are now in fact depleted. Or conversely,
                  building margin or headroom into the planning of new
                  resources, that optimization suffers.

                  Attendees of this presentation will learn:

              -  Why current energy productivity management methodologies
                 that focus on how power is delivered to the data center
                 are missing the mark; and why the future will be dedicated to
                 understanding why it is being consumed.
              -  Why data center management needs productivity solutions
                 that enable them to tie their applications to the specific
                 IT equipment that supports them (solutions that include
                 modeling, mapping, and business criticality analysis will be
                 highlighted).
              -  How proper energy productivity monitoring and management
                 can impact both operational and capital expenses.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
