IP Expo bills itself as six events in one. On October 17th and 18th at Earls Court 2 in London, it aims to use these six events to cover every facet of infrastructure technology. This is a bold claim, but if the success of last year's IP Expo is anything to go by, the organizers should succeed.
Six Events in One
The six events of IP Expo are a set of linked themes:
These deal with the key issues many IT service providers and consultants are keen to know about. IP Expo therefore offers information about new products and developments. Delegates also have the chance to discover answers to questions that emerge from their daily work.
To get the most out of the two days, delegates should decide in advance which of the 200 or so sessions they wish to attend. The following are likely to be among the most popular:
VMware and partners will demonstrate ways of making the IT environment simpler to manage.
Panduit and partners will show how to integrate Smart Data Centers and Connected Building solutions with the deployment of Unified Physical Infrastructure.
Industry experts will discuss the growth of structured and unstructured data, and the ways solution providers can cope.
Citrix will help resolve mobility and cloud issues with the use of cloud, virtualization, SaaS, and networking technologies.
Busy and Rewarding
With such a range of topics, IP Expo promises to be a busy and rewarding event. Feedback from 2011 indicates that delegates often learn a great deal in a short space of time.
