As an IT professional, a new year means new perspectives and a chance to evaluate your IT infrastructure – is it fully equipped to drive your business forward in the years ahead? If you’ve seen the most recent IDC report, they’re predicting the world’s digital data will grow to 163 zettabytes by 2025*. That’s the equivalent of 11,600 stacks of books, with each stack reaching 93 million miles into the sky – the distance between the earth’s surface and the surface of the sun.
With that in mind, 2019 might be a great year to examine the latest technology trends so you can prepare your organization and department for the digital sea wave that’s coming – IoT, edge computing, artificial intelligence, data mining, virtual reality, global connectivity, artificial intelligence, data legislation and quantum computing, to name a few.
Faced with the inevitable IT challenges that will arise from these imminent trends, many IT professionals are already exploring next-generation methods and solutions to stay ahead of the storm. One easy way to do that is to attend the Storage Technology Showcase in Dallas, Texas, from March 12 to 15, 2019. This conference is designed to equip IT professionals with strategic information on the latest disruptive technologies, trends and emerging solutions for organizations managing massive amounts of data. Attendees will engage with their peers, industry thought leaders and other organizations that are confronting the same issues — and hear what fresh strategies others are implementing and recommending to prepare for the next wave.
If you like to plan for the future like I do, take time to register here for the STS conference to be held at the beautiful Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center. Get yourself prepared to help your business thrive – not just survive — by attending this year’s Storage Technology Showcase.
