Details: Agility - the ability to respond dynamically to changing business requirements - is paramount for IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) organizations. Virtualization, IT modernization, and real-time infrastructure architecture are increasingly essential to this agility. The Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Management Summit 2009 will deliver the insight and information needed to address the changes ahead, and thrive in economic uncertainty. We'll take an in-depth look at trends and issues in I&O such as:

  • Virtualization - its impact, and the next steps to take
  • Cloud Computing - the growing hype
  • Networking - its increasing influence on I&O
  • Legacy Infrastructure - how to determine when changes will be necessary to support evolving business demands
  • IT Costs - how to control, optimize, and even reduce IT costs
  • Enterprise-Wide Efficiency - how to maximize efficiency by improving short- and long-term processes
  • IT Implementations - how to contain costs; choose wisely on new ones, and derive more value from existing infrastructure
