In today’s IT environments, spurring new enterprise growth, attracting and retaining customers and reducing enterprise costs are the top three business priorities for many companies. Combining these concerns with the critical priorities of identifying useful business intelligence, and sorting through cloud, virtualization and mobile technologies adds to the challenges facing today’s IT environment. Additionally, governmental policies can play an important role in the decisions we make regarding our IT infrastructure. Embracing solutions to these challenges, the CIO Forum will help determine key strategies that can drive greater business value in the enterprise, leading to distinct competitive advantages.

Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. and industry luminaries will discuss which innovative and energy efficient technologies may prove to be key building blocks for tomorrow’s data center deployment. This invitation-only intensive one day forum will take a close look at how to address escalating data center energy costs through widespread use of technologies such as cloud computing, virtualization, and green memory and storage.

The event, which features senior-level speakers from industry-leading organizations and government, will explore how implementing a green technology ecosystem can help you reduce power consumption and save space, while improving overall performance and reducing your data center carbon footprint.

Peer-to-peer networking & collaboration opportunities
Detailed discussions about proven best practices
Lunch and a reception at the elegant Fairmont Hotel.
