Andy Lawrence - Research Vice President - Datacenter Technologies (DCT) & Eco-Efficient IT, Foresight Project, 451 Research
General Session-Bellagio Ballroom 2,6
In the modern, cloudy world, does the underlying technology of the physical datacenter really matter that much? Andy Lawrence, VP of Research for Datacenters and Critical Infrastructure, argues that the innovation and excellence in design, management and technology of the datacenter “fabric” is not just critical, but is an ever more competitive differentiator for all service providers. In this session, he will explore how datacenters are evolving, and discuss key developments, technologies and practices with key stakeholders and experts.

Managed Security Services - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Dan Thompson - Senior Analyst, 451 Research
Aaron Sherrill - Senior Analyst, 451 Research
Breakout 1-Grand Ballroom 3,6
We’re past the point of product pushing – that’s actually part of the problem. Selling through the fear, ‘tyranny of the urgent’, or one-off point solutions may close some deals, but it likely won’t turn one-time customers into lasting business relationships. Companies today are looking for well thought out, managed solutions, which will help them minimize cyberattack risks and stay compliant with industry and federal regulations. The question now is, are services that fill those needs worth offering for your organization? In this session we’ll take a look at the following:

- Where are enterprises struggling and what service(s) can you offer to fits their needs
- Services that could be good, but are usually poorly delivered
- Services that use to be strategic but are now just a commodity
- Services that your company should walk away from immediately (and things your company should quit saying)
- Should your company even be offering Managed Security Services?
1:30pm - 2:00pm
Living on the Edge: The role of the datacenter and CoLo in IoT
Christian Renaud - Research Director, Internet of Things, 451 Research
Breakout 2-Grand Ballroom 7,9
The segments of the IoT market spending real money today in manufacturing, energy and transportation all heavily depend on edge computing for mission-critical applications. This creates an opportunity for datacenter technology vendors and service providers who can provide the localized services these applications demand. This session dives into these applications, their real requirements, and which key segments of the vast IoT market present the best opportunities for datacenter operators and technology vendors.

Interconnection: When microseconds matter
Eric Hanselman - Chief Analyst, 451 Research
Breakout 1-Grand Ballroom 3,6
Interconnect technologies are both the foundation of capable infrastructure and one of the most misunderstood areas in the march to hybrid cloud. And they can do serious harm to user experience and application performance when things go wrong. It’s a critical triangulation between capacity, cost, performance, and the harsh realities of the laws of physics. This session will examine new technologies and services that have hit the market and sort out their impacts on existing capabilities, facilities, and service consumers. We’ll then explore the collision between expanded CDN functionality and more complex application architectures and the promise of SDN-based agility. Peering and the new class of provider-hosted exchanges will be lined up with new offerings from upstarts and the direct attachment services of major cloud providers. There are a world of new options, but it’s not clear how and when they could displace what’s out there today. However it shakes out, you and your customers have to depend on the outcome.

The Mind of the Hyperscaler
General Session-Bellagio Ballroom 2,6
Hyperscalers continue to dominate the Cloud market. Their scope and scale have enabled them to build rich service portfolios which makes it difficult to compete against them. It must be remembered that these providers are also customers of products and services. Their scope and scale also drives unique needs for products and services. This session dives into better understanding the hyperscalers as customers.

- What are the important differences that hyperscalers need to consider when securing infrastructure, software, and services?
- What are the capabilities that are being provided today that fall short of what is needed?
- What are the capabilities that are needed, but not available?
- How do hyperscalers want to work with suppliers?

High-value Partnering: why 'sell with' is the new 'sell through' for vendors and providers
Rory Duncan - Research Director, European Services, 451 Research
General Session-Bellagio Ballroom 2,6
In the era of cloud, the significance of distribution to the supply chain is changing dramatically. Channel partners have moved-on from ‘tin shifting’ commoditized IT, instead working in tandem with vendors and providers to supply new kinds of complex cloud services to meet enterprise demand. As the focus moves from cloud construction to cloud consumption, the importance of these relationships increases, shifting the market opportunity to an ecosystem of connected specialists. Modern systems integrators, managed service providers and VARs are bringing higher-value, niche and vertical offerings to market that traditional ‘sell through’ models however, do not address. In this session, Rory Duncan, Research Director for Managed Services & Hosting, will outline the revised ‘sell with’ strategies that vendors and service providers alike must adopt in order to facilitate the delivery of high-growth services - including managed private cloud, security and disaster recovery – in partnership with their channel ecosystem.

Scale vs. Services: Finding, funding and valuing assets needed for the digital future
Kelly Morgan - Research Vice President, Services, 451 Research
Breakout 1-Grand Ballroom 3,6
As enterprises evolve their digital infrastructure, service providers need to piece together offerings that will differentiate themselves without breaking the bank. In this panel we will discuss how M&A can provide some missing pieces and what those pieces may be. Join our distinguished panel of finance experts as we discuss key questions such as: Who is likely to go shopping? What firms will be targets? Are networks and datacenters more or less sought after than services and software providers? How are assets being valued? What financing is available and on what terms? We will debate these and more as we explore trends impacting this dynamic sector.
