360°dcLounge & Enterprise Ireland: Need for Speed 2017! – Retrospect

Need For Speed was also a hot topic for the more than 110 participants at the 360°dcLounge in Dublin. In fact, there were so many highlights, I wouldn’t like to have to choose one over the other. Except for this perhaps: the networking, discussions and exchange that took place between the DC experts this year was particularly lively.

Need For Speed in the Data Center environment – this was a clear core statement from all the speakers; all are aware that without DCs, mastering the transformation, IoT, Industry 4.0, etc would not be possible.

I would like to offer my thanks:

  • To all the speakers for their openness, and the insights they offered us into their visions and companies
  • To our hosts Facebook, Intel, Eaton, Equinix, Interxion and Dataplex, for showing us something of their world
  • To the sponsors, without whom this 360°dcLounge would not have been possible
  • To Vincenz Wagner and the entire Enterprise Ireland Team, without whose contacts and support, it would not have been possible to realise many of the highlights, and
  • Finally, the participants from Denmark, Germany, Finland, UK, Ireland, Israel, Norway, Sweden and Singapore – without whom the 360°dcLounge would not exist.

You can find the presentations the speakers made available to us under „Downloads“, along with some visual impressions in the „Gallery“.

I hope all the participants who made new contacts can build on them to the point that joint business prospects develop.

See you all again soon at one of the next 360°dcLounge events!

360°dcLounge & Enterprise Ireland: Need for Speed 2017!

Enterprise Ireland in conjunction with 360°dcLounge, is organizing for the third time a data centre tour to Dublin from May 17 – 19. It will consist of a sizeable group of German, Austrian and Swiss data centre industry players as well as experts from the Scandinavian region.
More than 100 experts working in 74 companies from 13 countries participated in 2016 – plans for 2017 promise well-known company site visits and new data centre developments. Monika’s 2016-Buzzword „EDGE“ is now common – we are looking forward to your take on 2017 trends.

Speed is a key factor for anyone who does not want to fall behind the competition. The Data centre Infrastructure Community is also faced with new challenges:
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) – Artificial Intelligence (AI) – 5G – Digitization in Datacenters – Digital Twin – Digital Transformation – Internet-of-Things – EDGE – Industry 4.0 – Data centre-in-a-box – and many more

Need For Speed so we won’t be left behind!

The focal point of this event is the international experience exchange, which will be complemented by many highlights – so far we have planned the following:

  • Gartner
  • IntelLab
  • FacebookLab 
  • Visit of four data centres
  • Walking tour of the Financial district providing insights to facilities management

Benefit from this versatile trip for your future business.

We are delighted to be guests at the Eaton Headquarters, present for over 10 years in Dublin.

In order to account for the networking aspect of this Enterprise Ireland – 360°dcLounge, participation in the planned sessions at Eaton Headquarters on Thursday, May 18, 2017 is a prerequisite for taking part in the other highlights. We do not yet know whether we will have sufficient capacity at all planned stations. We therefore ask you to state when registering which stations you would like to participate in. Please note that we agreed with the main sponsors not to invite direct competitors. 

Please remember to make your hotel booking and your flight arrangements as soon as possible. Please plan to have landed in Dublin airport at latest 1pm on May 17th 2017, and depart Dublin May 19th 2017 from 3pm onwards.

We look forward to seeing you in Dublin!
