HP is continuing its series of free virtual conferences, giving IT professionals online access to briefings on business and technology trends about data center transformation (DCT) from HP executives and third-party experts. During the newest upcoming events, which run July 13-15, those attending will have the opportunity to listen to, and chat with, technology experts from HP, as well as hundreds of other IT professionals.

Hosted by Helen Tang, HP WW Data Center Transformation Lead for HP Enterprise Business, this virtual conference series features top HP executives describing how DCT helps companies respond quickly to changing business needs and shift spending from maintenance to innovation. [Disclosure: HP is a sponsor of BriefingsDirect podcasts.]

The free, half-day virtual events, organized by region, explore IT strategies and solutions to avoid performance pitfalls and to achieve more predictable results. They discuss DCT and explore approaches for delivering significantly higher data center results in a shorter time-frame. The purely online events also provide keynotes and other "auditorium" sessions, an exhibit area, and an opportunity to network online.

Keynote speaker Donna Scott, Vice President and Distinguished Analyst with Gartner research, will present “Choosing the right data center and IT architecture to meet the needs of the business.”

Other sessions include:

  • Three signs that it’s time to transform your data center

  • Building a converged infrastructure environment to overcome application and IT sprawl in the data center

  • Data center facilities optimization strategies for design, reliability and environmental efficiency

  • Closing keynote case study: Data center transformation results in billion dollar annual savings.

Speakers include: Hande Sahin-Bahceci, Data Center Transformation Manager, HP Technology Services; Bob Meyer, HP's Worldwide Solutions Lead; Duncan Campbell, VP of HP's Worldwide Marketing; Peter Gross, Vice President and General Manager of HP Critical Facilities Services; Jay Mellman, Sernior Director for Worldwide Marketing HP Networking; and Pete Karolczak, Senior Vice President and General Manager of HP Enterprise Services.
