The XCHANGE: Infrastructure Virtual Conference
June 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT
Join us for the next conference in our virtual event series. This next event is all about scalability and reliability. THEXCHANGE will explore how IT infrastructure is evolving to keep pace with digital transformation, new technologies, and processes such as Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the necessity of keeping up with consumer demands.
THEXCHANGE will host a series of speakers to discuss mainframe, cloud, and hybrid infrastructures, edge computing, security and governance, and IT finance and planning.
Damaged Joy – Fixing Digital Experience: Infrastructure and CX Edition with Taz Lake, Author and Founder at Brightmill | Watch the Video
- If you thought CX (Customer Experience) was just about a fancy retail store or a pretty website, you may be surprised. Infrastructure plays a critical role in gathering insights and building interactions with your customer. Through real-life examples, we will explore those, as well as the risks inherent in infrastructure dependencies, availability, and scalability. We will see how service delivery may be impacted and touch on the role of AI and Machine Learning in supporting infrastructure and better customer experience.
Q&A: All Things Cloud with Scott Adams, Chief Product Owner at HelpSystems | Watch the Video
- Organizations today are not just playing with on-prem and private data centers. Many are taking advantage of the benefits of working with public cloud providers for certain applications. In this session, Scott Adams will talk about IT infrastructure and how data obtained from capacity planning tools can help in their future technology purchases in the cloud.
Edge Computing – An Emerging Paradigm with Ashu Joshi, CEO/Founder at Movinture | Watch the Video
- The history of computing has gone through many phases. The early days of computer technology were dominated by physically large, centrally located mainframes, with thin terminals used by end-users. This centralized model migrated to mini-computers. The late 1980’s till early 2000s saw a shift where compute and storage became decentralized (and kind of local) with Desktop PCs and smaller and more powerful servers. The last decade has moved to a centralized model where computing, storage, and network have moved to the Cloud. This session covers an emerging paradigm – Edge Computing – where elements of computing, storage, and network are being moved closer in proximity to where these functions are best performed. We are in an era where Data is the new Oil. Edge computing brings compute (and to a certain degree storage & network) closer to where the data is being produced. Think of sensors producing a deluge of data. This session will provide an overview of how Edge Computing is going to impact and benefit from machine learning, distributed computing, IoT, decentralized technologies (like blockchain and distributed ledger) and hybrid computing.
Q&A: Overcoming Infrastructure Sprawl with Charles Johnson – Senior Solutions Consultant at Syncsort | Watch the Video
- As an organization grows and evolves over time, IT infrastructure sprawl can become a time consuming and costly. In this session, Charles Johnson will explore some of the biggest causes of this sprawl and how AI and Machine Learning are being integrated into infrastructure management.
Performance, Scalability and Reliability in private clouds with Gary Little, Technical Director at Nutanix | Watch the Video
- Private infrastructure is undergoing a renaissance in design and operation. A cloudification of the datacenterfor want of a better word. Hyper-Converged-Infrastructure (HCI) is a key component of such transformation. In this session you will learn about HCI and the evolution of private cloud operating systems. We will show how distributed systems techniques, honed in public clouds enable privateclouds that are high performance, scalable and resilient. Take a look under the covers to discover how the cloud is made.
How to Do Capacity Planning
With ever-growing IT infrastructure, keeping applications and systems up and running isn’t easy. You can’t afford downtime, but you also have limited time, money, and resources to keep IT running. Capacity planning is all about that balance of keeping IT services up without overspending. Get your guide to starting a capacity planning practice. (HelpSystems)
Six Ways to Make Your Cloud More Affordable
Many IT teams are feeling the pressure to move to cloud—and often for good reasons. Operating in the cloud has many benefits, but without a smart migration you’ll end up with cloudshock, that heart-stopping feeling you get when you see your first enormous cloud bill. Make a smart move to cloud with these six ways to make cloud more affordable.(HelpSystems)
Getting Started: A Manager’s Guide to Implementing Capacity Management
Your business needs the support of IT services in order to deliver value to customers. Whether you’ve invested in cloud services or an in-house data center, your IT infrastructure needs a capacity management practice to reduce the risk of slowdowns or outages while minimizing waste from overprovisioning. Get your guide to learn how to get started.(HelpSystems)
Is Reporting the Weak Link in Your Capacity Management Process?
New products and capabilities are released to the market all the time that help companies improve their ability to manage their current and future workload needs. However, no matter the maturity of their capacity management approach or the tools they choose to use, being able to report and share information is the foundation to showing the ROI of capacity management.

InterSystems – IRIS Data Platform Whitepaper
Organizations in every industry are looking to exploit the strategic and operational benefits of
shortening and eliminating the delay between event, insight, and action. They also strive to
embed data-driven intelligence into their realtime business processes.
ESG Building Smarter Faster Scalable Data-Rich Applications
As the technology landscape evolves, organizations struggle with addressing the needs of modern applications. One reason for this is that organizations continue to leverage traditional database infrastructures, even force-fitting modern applications into an RDBMS due to familiarity or internal mandate. This leads to headaches for DBAs who are then stuck with managing independent physical infrastructures for each application, while also struggling to meet the performance, scalability, and flexibility requirements of many of these modern applications.
Role of Data Management in Delivering the Digital Transformation Platform
The significance of digital transformation in ensuring that an enterprise thrives is rising. One key enabling technology system is the digital transformation platform, which is driven by data management. Thus, data management has a critical role in ensuring a successful digital transformation.
