Deciphering the financial services data deluge: get ahead on storage and analytics
Venue The South Place Hotel
In the world of data centres, performance reigns supreme. Except – between computing, networking and storage – the discussion of how performance evolves is as varied as the combinations available to IT leaders.
Storage may seem for some a cut-and-dry case of yesteryear, but with advanced approaches in analytics and data insights unveiling new innovations that translate into competitive advantage – just look at the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team – the impact efficient storage has on business performance is undeniable.
As a result, financial services organisations are increasingly questioning the speed of data access and ability to reduce complexity through innovative storage.
This exclusive event will focus on exploring this evolving landscape, with IT leaders looking to understand how storage can play a foundational role in near real-time decision making.
