These past couple of years has shown us just how important digital infrastructure can be in a connected society. Still, managing data centers, edge locations, and use-cases around distributed infrastructure pose new and emerging challenges. How do you change from reactive to prescriptive and predictive? Are data centers really becoming massive homes for sensors? How can leaders continue to push digital infrastructure forward while still enabling greater levels of observability?

This special workshop, led by industry expert Bill Kleyman, will dive into the latest tools and real-world applications around DCIM and data center management. Beyond functions and features, this session will dive into real-world use-cases around augmented reality, virtual reality, and the meta-experience within the modern data center. Be prepared to put on a VR headset to experience the real future of digital infrastructure management. For the first time, you'll see data come to life as we explore future concepts around data center management, today.

Specifically, we'll cover:
- Key trends around DCIM and data center management
- Emerging tools and features in DCIM
- Stories from the field... some good, some not so good
- In-Person Experience: AR/VR and Robotics in the data center (and DCIM)
- What to expect from a fascinating future
