The Premier Destination for Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Leaders

I&O is no longer “IT support” — it’s the engine that drives digital business

Digital is transforming more than just the enterprise. It’s making traditional infrastructure and operations models obsolete, challenging I&O leaders to bring fresh ideas that deliver business outcomes.
As an I&O leader you must play the role of an enabler—embracing agile deployment models that include cloud, containers and micro services, managing an explosion of data, and achieving ever-rising service levels. You must be an influencer—working in a collaborative culture built on new business relationships and financial acumen. Most of all, you must be a transformer—laying the foundation for the vast digital ecosystem and virtualized data center of the future.

Join us at the Gartner Infrastructure, Operations & Data Center Summit 2017, 4-5 May in Mumbai, and reinvent your I&O role to become a key driver in the transformation of your organization and position yourself @ the core of change.
