The data center is more complex than ever before. So, here’s the big question – How do you manage it all? Are we still leveraging manual processes to keep our most critical services up and running? More important, are data center management operations keeping you worried and up at night?

The good news is that DCIM has come a long way. And, to learn more about solutions, challenges, new technologies, and what organizations are looking for, we're conducting this leadership and innovation DCIM workshop. This workshop will focus on DCIM, managing today’s data centers, and what’s just around the corner. We'll also explore DCIM concepts, new tools to leverage and use, lessons learned and best practices. And we'll also provide you with a glimpse at what to expect from future DCIM systems.

Specifically we'll cover:

- The latest trends in DCIM and the Data Center

- New tools and features in DCIM

- Stories from the field... some good, some not so good

- Future systems: AR/VR and Robotics in the data center (and DCIM)

- What to expect from a fascinating future
